When we did the „Best Dressed – wedding guest or formal summer outfit event“
with the German Curves
I thought what a bugger – wayyy to early. Well, this was worth the wait. I believed I ran out of friends who get married a few years ago. But no, a few months back I got another invite. A well matched couple. Can’t say which I like better, bride or groom. The wedding took friends and me down south. Not all the way, just south of Frankfurt.
The setting for the registry wedding was the pretty Manor, Schloss Fechenbach, in Dieburg
, a quaint little town. The reception in the evening was at a very nice and relaxed place. Food was excellent, we got drunk enough and danced till two.
My dress is a lovely and simple little number with chintzy roses. A bit kitsch, quite romantic. Neither black nor white. Cheerful. Had I known the bride wore navy I would have gone for something darker.
I love the boat neck. You can sit down opposite the strictest mother in law and you know when she frowns it won’t be because your boobs are spilling on the table from a strapless contortion that was never meant to contain anything more than a tiny peach, let alone two.
The hat has been around with the French Curves retro look
and this pretty white dress with red dots
. The porcelain brooch is vintage.
In summer I usually have a fan in my bag – and it was stuffy in the historic rooms and even stuffier outside. We always love the idea of a june wedding. Somehow we all tend to blend out that quite often it isn’t pleasant but hot outside. Hot and humid. The perfect weather to melt down.
It wasn’t just humid, we also had a bit of rain – this is where this pretty umbrella comes in handy. It is dainty enough to pass also as a parasol and doesn’t look like you are attending a funeral when it rains.
The bride’s bouquet was really pretty – way to pretty to be thrown around. This time the men had to jump – and one really made the effort!
