WIWW: 2011 Wedding Edition!

This year has been the biggest Wedding Season for us ever!!
So many friends getting married!

Wedding Season kicked off for us early this year with my sister's wedding in April.
Then, we had 2 weddings in August, 1 in September, 1 in October & 1 this past weekend.

Figuring out what to wear to weddings is always fun, so here is WIWW - Wedding Edition!
(And, I included what I wore to 2 of the Rehearsal Dinners)

So there you have it, What I Wore to Weddings....2011 Edition!
Super excited about the 3 weddings we have next year!
(Maybe I need to branch out with my wedding style next year & not wear a strapless dress to every.single.wedding! ha! I didn't realize how many strapless dresses I own!)


  1. Quit being so gosh darn adorable, Mel! You look hott (yes, hott) in all those dresses. Almost makes me wish I'd been invited to 37 weddings this year. I'm not going to lie - I went to 3 weddings this summer and wore the same dress to all of them. Fashion faux pas! Whoopsie! Guess I won't be doing a wiww wedding edition!

    And you rock the strapless dress. Why branch out? I didn't even notice until you said something about it!

  2. Ok. how cute it that? You were so on the wedding circuit. I have been off that circuit for a while so I have a wedding uniform, now. The same dress that gets pulled out. I don't even know what it is right now since i haven't been to one in a few years! Loved your F21 purple one. Darling, my friend. :)

  3. LOVE all your wedding attire...especially that last dress when you were a reader! The print is fabulous!

  4. Girl, if you can pull off strapless (and you can), then work it! My fave was the purple dress. :D

  5. I am having trouble liking you...you are BEAUTIFUL!
    holy moly...
    the dresses!!!
    the hair!
    the LEGS

    I am jealous

    I am going to start stalking you
    and I am going to pretend to be you
    and I am changing my name to Mel

    you are HOT

    wedding season? jealous again...we are in funeral season! Not as much fun....:-)

  6. You look so cute! I love weddings, so much fun!

  7. I loved the dress you wore to my wedding! So sad that it came apart. :( Yay for Modcloth's customer service though.

    The striped dress for A&B's wedding is AWESOME.

  8. HA! And I was just feeling so jealous at your cute strapless numbers! My "girls" won't allow strapless and I always think strapless dresses are the bomb. You looked sensational in EVERY photo!

  9. You look cute in all of them! Great idea for a post. We had 4 weddings this year in which we were apart of 3 of them as groomsman, bestman, and matron of Honor. I might have to blog about them like you:)

  10. Fabulous dresses! I don't think you should stop wearing strapless - if you've got the body & shoulders for them - WORK IT, girl! :)

  11. WOW! What a year of weddings!

    Every single one of those dresses are beautiful, btw

  12. For a more casual and professional approach, choose a shirt skirt. They are not very flattering, but can still give you the look you need. Once again, wear long dresses instead of short dresses to pursue the fashion trends Pakistani clothes of the season.

  13. I started on COPD Herbal treatment from Ultimate Life Clinic, the treatment worked incredibly for my lungs condition. I used the herbal treatment for almost 4 months, it reversed my COPD. My severe shortness of breath, dry cough, chest tightness gradually disappeared. Reach Ultimate Life Clinic via their website www.ultimatelifeclinic.com . I can breath much better and It feels comfortable!

  14. My girlfriend is a fat woman and she always wanted to be happy, like all other girls. She was advised a dating site for bbws, but before that she read a review about this site. She liked it and she began to get acquainted there, now she has an active correspondence with one man, which she is extremely happy about. Recommends this site!

  15. I always want to ask about where they met. This happens every time I see blogs about weddings and wedding chores. I have a good site in mind. This dating site was recommended to me by friends who have already found a permanent couple there. But I still can't find the perfect woman.
