My Winter Wedding Series: The Wedding Party Look Part 1: The Groomsmen

Hope you guys are enjoying my wedding series thus far. If you missed any of those, you can just visit the Wedding category at the top on the navigation bar or you can click here. 

Last week, I shared you the look that my husband put together for himself. If you missed that post, click here. Today, I’m sharing with you the looks of the Wedding Party. This will be a 2-Part post, although you can already see here the look of both the Groomsmen and the Bridesmaids. 

As I’ve mentioned previously, my husband rented his tux from Men’s Wearhouse and so did his Groomsmen. He has selected a pre-styled look which was the Joseph Abboud Navy Satin. We substituted the color of the tie and the shoes to match our wedding colors.

Everyone looked pretty sharp in those navy tuxes, blush neckties, and brown shoes. We couldn’t be happier. We have received sooooo many compliments on how the Wedding Party looked and the Groomsmen themselves were pretty happy on how their looks turned out.

My Winter Wedding Series: The Groom’s Look

If there’s one area in planning our wedding that’s probably the smoothest, it would be finding the look for my groom and his groomsmen. I’m grateful that my husband is fashion-conscious himself so it wasn’t so difficult to put together a look for him and his guys. 

In the beginning, it really was just a matter of picking what color tux would go with our main wedding colors which were cream, gold, and blush. We initially played with the idea of a black and white tux and then tan. For some reason, black never came up as an option. We wanted something different. But the black and white or tan tuxes didn’t seem fit so we ended up with a navy tux for him and his best man and groomsmen. 

My husband (then fiancé) opted to rent tuxes instead of buying one. Thankfully, Men’s Wearhouse, has the option to rent tuxes and they have the color that we picked.

My Winter Wedding Series: My Bridal Portrait Session

I can’t believe it’s been three and a half months since I’ve gotten married! Getting engaged last year was definitely one of the best and most exciting moments of my life, followed by the wedding planning. It’s been such a tremendous journey and looking back, even though we had a lot of ups and downs in planning the wedding and up until the wedding, I still had a wonderful time between planning and actually getting married!

Today, I wanted to share to you guys some photos from my bridal session with my very good friend and photographer @photog_p. Please check out his Insta gallery! He’s got some amazing photos. The guy has skills! I’ve been friends with him since 2009 and I’ve always loved his work. Let’s just say that we worked his butt off both at the bridal portrait session and our wedding!

Mascara Cocktailing with Revlon® Mascara

April 30, 2017, this coming Sunday, is Revlon® Mascara Day at Walgreens, so mark your calendar ladies! What does that mean for you and I? It means that when you visit your local Walgreens store, you can BOGO for 50% any Revlon product!

As some of you may already know, I don’t wear make-up on a daily basis. If anything, I would wear a light foundation or BB Cream, powder, a little bit of blush and mascara for a natural fresh look.

I have a slightly long eyelashes and I love enhancing it with a mascara. For me, that’s the easiest, most natural and prettiest way to go. My eyes don’t work quite well with false eyelashes over a long period of time.

Festival Look by Altar’d State

It’s festival season and Coachella is just around the corner! If you’ve ever been to a festival, you know that it’s fun looking at other people’s outfits. They can go from anywhere casual to totally outrageous! I’ve only been to one music festival all my life and that was a few years ago.

I decided to be true to my style and wear something comfortable. If you’ve never been to one, there’s definitely lots of walking, standing, and dancing so something comfortable is a MUST. 

As always, I like to go in between. I like comfy and stylish. I’m just not the type to be boldly outrageous anywhere but I can go with trendy. Speaking of trendy, the off-the-shoulder trend is the perfect style to wear at a festival. It’s getting warmer and warmer and showing off your shoulders will help you cool down while in style!
