Before this wedding I had never been to one before. I find that you can divide people in two groups - the weddingers or the funeralers. I sadly was a funeraler until this wedding introduced me to all things glorious and I loved it! Since I was new to the whole wedding thing I just went into my favourite store, Forever New, before work one morning and they picked out my outfit. I got exceptional service and I was so happy with the look. One tip I would like to add is that if you need attention from sales ladies and men is that it's a good idea to go in the morning because they are likely to have more time, be in a better mood and no customers have had time to be grumpy at them yet.
Because I knew I was wearing a statement necklace, I wanted my hair to be simple for the wedding so I just did a simple and sleek bun. I also had a spray tan from Classic Beauty on Hunter Street prior to the wedding. My makeup consisted of a silver eye shadow, mascara, eye liner, concealer, lip gloss & bronzer
Here's the outfit in another light. My shoes and dress got so many comments, but don't worry - there was no way I could (or wanted) to outshine the gorgeous bride!
This was my second wedding and it was a very fun affair. It was a scorching hot day though so I actually had to get changed in between the ceremony and the reception. I kept my hair simple and straight and my makeup was simply mascara, eye liner, concealer and bronzer. It was too hot for anything else. I had a spray tan before this wedding too at Access to Beauty in Coogee and it was a terrible one, I was so embarrassed because it was uneven and my hands were orange. I wore two old dresses for this wedding, the first one was from Bardot and the second was from a boutique in Manly.

The weather for this wedding was a little cloudy and rainy but it was a beautiful day nonetheless. I used a 5 year old H&M dress, did my hair in a side bun with hair clips from Oroton that were a Christmas present from my BFF and just kept it very simple. The necklace is from Colette.
The hair clips are so beautiful, they deserve their own picture.
I can never resist a little bit of touristness and Mike indulged me this time.
We had a great time as usual and the wedding was very beautiful. I love the speaches too, I am such a softie.
PS - I wore this dress to our second date 3 years ago (we went to the races) and we ended up taking the same picture in the same place although you can't tell since it was dark outside.
This wedding was extra special because it was Mike's brother getting married and he was best man. My de-facto sister Cait did the GHD-curls and I did gold makeup. The dress was new from Witchery but it was on sale so I could justify it. The blazer is from Portmans and I use it at work. The necklace was also from Portmans.
At the wedding reception there was a photo booth which was too much fun!
This little man is a very gorgeous friend of ours and I hadn't acutally been to a christening since my sister had her baptism 15 years ago. It was a beautiful ceremony and we had some lovely cakes and macaroons from Adriano Zumbo afterwards. I wore an old gold & black Roxy dress and the earrings are from H&M. I had my hair in a donut bun.

This was a big special occassion year for us - this all happened from November to September. I love sharing these special moments with friends and I just want to reiterate that it doesn't matter how new or old your outfit is, as long as you feel comfortable you will have a good time. Even the Queen recycles outfits so bring it on. For instance, the dress I wore to wedding A I wore to the hen's party for wedding D.
How do you prepare for special occassions?
