This past weekend I attended the wedding of two of my very best friends. What I loved about it the most was that it was traditional with a colourful twist.
Of course, I was the hairdresser for the event. She went with gigantic curly hair. This was achieved with the use of clip in extensions
For the bride’s sister we went a little more simple.
The theme for the even was “Alice in Wonderland”. I thought it was just great. It was also nice to see people inspired by the theme in their own outfits.
The venue was beautiful as well. It was held at Waterstone in King Township. A beautifully maintained horse farm. Complete with cats.
Enough about the wedding! On to what I wore! I kept with the theme of the wedding and decided that I would be the queen of hearts.
Boy did I get a lot of attention from this outfit! It took a lot of planning, and a little bit of crafting to pull off.
Let’s start off with the accessories.
The gold lips necklace was from H&M. Isn’t it great? I’m most likely going to wear it all of the time. My crown was crafted by myself with just a pop can and some gold spray paint. I could not find what I had in mind, so I had to make it myself. That gorgeous cocktail ring is by Daniel Pollock. The man needs a website. He does not have one. I only see him when I visit the One of a Kind show in Toronto. He did the jewelry for my own wedding as well.
On to the dress.
I love this dress. I ordered it a few months ago from City Chic Online. I believe it’s still in stock AND still on sale. It was a great fit and a little funky. It ca,e with the yellow belt. I would have liked a red one, but could not find one in time for the wedding. Oh well, no biggie.
I have such a love/hate relationship with shoes. I love shoes, but don’t hate the feet for them. Sad. I found these pretties at Naturalizer. I only wore them for three hours. After that I switched to my nude flats.
I even co-ordinated my husband for this event.
Isn’t he handsome? Don’t you love his tie? He bought his entire suit at goodwill for under $20. I found the tie at Forever 21.
It was a super fun wedding. Everyone was hungover the next day. I couldn’t even get a hold of the bride! Don’t worry, she survived and is enjoying her honeymoon in Mexico. I can’t wait for the next wedding!
