Blue Wedding!

Saturday, 9 March 2013

Today was a frantic rush of getting ready, I was so excited for this wedding that I hadn't slept very well for a few nights running up to it.
I got my hair done in the morning which took some of the pressure off, my hair-spiration came from Pinterest:

but I did my own makeup which was a neutral eye using the Urban Decay Vice palette - I forgot my Naked Palette and only had my Vice at home but luckily there were a few neutral gems in there which made it work out okay!
I did a bright bold red lip too video to follow, and then I had to do my sisters makeup too!
My sister is wearing a purple dress so wanted makeup to match, I found this:
From Pinterest of course...
and delved into the Urban Decay Vice palette and it had the perfect colours to recreate this

Here's how we turned out and then I will give an outfit break down!

My sister breakdown:
Purple dress from Karen Millen
Nude shoes from.. New Look or Next Probably
Makeup- me!

My breakdown:
Nautical dress from a boutique but I think I saw the same design at Blue Banana
Red Heels eBay - £10! (new, from an eBay shop)
Beaded clutch- Present from my sister from Debenhams about 5 years ago!
I did get some comments that it looked like I was wearing fancy dress- but I didn't care I love nautical-ness!

Us with the bride!
I wasn't sure if she'd appreciate her picture being put anywhere other than her Facebook, so I covered her face in hearts, just to be certain that it wouldn't be disrespectful to the privacy of her special day!

Her dress was completely stunning and breathtaking! It had lace all over and the train was beauitful and sort of scalloped! It was divine! I really want to try it on! The day was really lovely and the speeches were so funny - speeches are usually boring but these were not, although it probably helps when you know the bride very well!
It was also really nice to be with all my nearest and dearest all in once place, this hardly ever happens, not even at Christmas! 

The side effect is that it has just made me even more nervous and excited about my sisters wedding this Summer!
