OOTD: Steve & Em's wedding

2014 is going to be our year of weddings! Not only is there our wedding, but 4 couples we know are also tying the knot! For our friends Steve and Em's wedding on this weekend just gone, we road-tripped down just passed Sydney so we could help celebrate their big day! I took far too many photos, but wanted to share a few of my favourites here- I think they really captured the energy and love of the day!

I love that weddings are also a great excuse to doll-up! You can never be too dressed up at an event like this (as long as you don't wear a long white dress- fashion faux pas!), so I busted out my new pink facinator to match with this Summer dress and Ben's pink and purple! Lucky it was such an awesome party for my facinator, its already been retired because I set it on fire at the reception when I accidentally threw it into a candle! Awkward!

Dress: City Chic
Flats/Heels: Target
Clutch and Facinator: Target
(I may have been in a few too many Target's lately...) 

It can sometimes be hard to match up black accessories with a colour palate as pastel as this, but with the black trimmings on the hem and bodice I knew my wedges would work perfectly! Ben wore his pinstripe purple shirt accessorized with pink tie to match my facinator- cuteness! It takes a real man to wear pink and purple ;) 

This sparkly green clutch was a bargain buy at $18 from Target- I bought it on a whim, but I couldn't resist those gorgeous green gems! Turned out it was perfect for this outfit as well! Other than that I left accessories to a minimum, just wearing my normal locket necklace and rings. I figure that with so many colours I don't need any more bling. 

I adore this last shot of the four of us boogieing on the dancefloor! Hair's up, shirt sleeves are rolled and jackets off! We met Steve and Em while we were travelling around Thailand five years ago, we hit it off straight away and have been great mates ever since. I love that now we are all growing up and getting married- and still get to share that with friends like this!

What do you wear to a wedding??
Have you ever accidentally had a wardrobe malfunction?
(i.e setting your facinator on fire....) 


  1. Such a beautiful dress - great outfit for a wedding! Shame about the fascinator though, but a good story to tell!

    Congrats to your friends on their wedding :)

  2. So cute! I love your outfit, and it looks like you had a great time at the wedding. :-)

  3. Looks like such a fun wedding. Your outfit is simply gorg. I agree with you that the black piping on the dress gives it a little something extra, keeps it from being too sweet, and bonus - lets you make the easy choice of wearing black shoes. I also like that you pulled the pink and green from the dress's print to tie in your accessories.


  4. OMG!!! You look so awesome!!!!!!! I love the look!!! So sweet!!!!!!!!!!!
