Hey guys! Yes…yes…I’m breaking all the rules, attracting the attention of African Aunties and going against the color code of weddings all at once. – Or am I? The rules of wedding attire are so confusing and more specifically the age-old concern about wearing black to a wedding. But despite what we’ve heard from all and sundry, I personally think that as long as I’m not wearing a white or ivory floor length dress with embroiders across the top and a tiara in my hair, I’m good to go – In Black.
I would easily rock this number to a wedding and make every attempt to catch the bouquet during the toss. I imagine a hypothetical Nigerian wedding in a vineyard with delicious wine, lush green leaves and a rustic setting. What’s not to love about that? Wineries certainly make for unforgettable wedding venues but it’s also important to adorn the right kinda attire that fits the aesthetic.
A rustic setting means that the floors may be rustic too. Chances are that by the time you’ve had a few glasses of champagne, you’ll ditch your high heels and dance into the night on wood, pebbles and damp grass.
I cannot not get over how alluring the plunging neckline of this dress is. It’s deep enough to raise the brows of an overbearing African Aunty but flattering enough to keep you connected to nature, lush greenery and rolling hills (Remember we’re in an Imaginary Vineyard surrounded by beautiful picturesque landscaping).
Sadly guys, we have come to the end of the Wedding Series. I tried to keep it light but helpful and I hope someone found it useful. Thanks for following along and I would love to do more series on the blog. What would you like to see next? Leave a comment below and I will see you again.
