The Wedding

4:54 PM Imke Db 52 Comments




Some of you might already know, but my boyfriend's Dad is getting married, and I'm so excited about this wedding, as I'm sure it will be a wonderful and lovely day, and as I'm close to my love's family, I'm so happy for them and most certainly ready for some mayor celebrating. 

Like the control freak I am, I'm already planning what I'll wear this day, because you know, that's one of my favourite parts about a marriage. Since the wedding is planned in October this year it's probably a tad early to start looking for a dress, but I did start brainstorming on what to wear. I browsed Asos, found some really nice dresses and a fancy jumpsuit, and then I realised, you don't HAVE to impress with a dress. Why not be more original? And then I came with a genious plan. What if I made things easy for myself, and just wore a plain LBD? Throw in some nice black heels, a nice popping lipstick, and impress with a clutch? Oh yes, this one is going to invest in a crazy clutch that will stand out, and be the center piece of the ouftit. Also this way I don't have to be scared to be mayorly overdressed (my style tends to be slightly different from people around me), and bags are investment pieces. Sort of. Anyway: let the hunt begin!

What do you think? Good plan? Or too dark for a wedding? What do you wear for a wedding? Keep in mind it's October, so the flowy cream dress I had in mind is off the list. We're speaking about Belgium after all, so I'm expecting a cloudy cold day.

  6. Perfect plan, I say! LBDs will never fail and a statement clutch to go with it? YES. I'd say go for a more colourful clutch, like the Les Petits Joueurs purse, if you're worried about going too dark! Congrats to your fam!

    1. Oh really?! How weird!
      I think in Belgium it's accepted, but not many people actually do so.. But if guys can wear a black suit, then a LBD is no problem in my opinion ;)

  43. Ooh congrats! Thinking about what to wear for a wedding is indeed the best thing about them :D And I'm totally digging your idea about the bold statement clutch. You should totally go for it! Personally I'm really liking that last one. Cute and it reminds me of the good old days ^^
