Okay, so I just read an article about this thing about wearing a”second look” for bridesmaids in the bridal party. The rationale behind is that if the bride can do it, why can’t the bridesmaids? Right? It makes sense because, bridesmaids need to be comfortable during the party too, yes? Haha. But today I’m going to introduce a wedding guest dressing thing that might be a bit peculiar and that is – dressing up like a bridesmaid as a guest in a wedding. Lol.
Okay. Before I hear any violent reactions, hear me out on this one. I know that it’s frowned upon if you play matchy matchy with the wedding entourage but this scenario is actually unavoidable. I actually attended a wedding in Toronto without knowing that the color combo I packed for the event is the very same motif of the party. I swear, I didn’t know about it. Read it here. Good thing though, I’m a close friend of the groom. Coz it’s a bit awkward if not if you know what I mean. This brings me to my next point.
Of course, not that I would want to be a bridesmaid always (duh) but dressing up ala bridesmaid must be observed under the premise that (1) the chosen color is not actually coordinated to the wedding motif or yes if you are a relative of the couple and (2) the dress still does not upstage the bride. The point is to be the best dressed wedding guest without ruining the bride’s moment. I had this idea in mind when I saw this ultra maxi dress in a mermaid color (Very green and very now. Who would expect?). Vineyard weddings, anyone? Ooooh. I love how it’s loosely fit and flowy with its flounce style bottom and there’s that word again – dramatic. Yep, it’s very me. Though I don’t have any weddings to attend in the near future (but who knows? Haha!), I’d love to wear it there. For now most likely, I’d pack this dress to a dream destination (probably Morocco as inspired by this backdrop I chose) but for the meantime, here in the city as seen below. So, what’s your take on this wedding trend? Do you approve of it? Sound off in the comments.
