Today I am sharing a collaboration with Ada on how we styled with our girls for a summer wedding. It’s been a while since I have been to a wedding and I definitely haven’t been to one with kids. Because of the latter I took up the challenge to find a way to get my girls dressed appropriately for a wedding, including myself, to where we kind of coordinated.
My mom is the queen of buying my girls dresses, call it a hobby and love if you will. My girls have dresses that are fit for a flower girl (I am telling the honest to God truth) and because of this I don’t let them wear the dresses often (because these are all white satin nice dresses). I had a time trying to find dresses for this post as most of the dresses are either too formal or too floral and almost casual. I finally settled on these dresses for the girls.
Nevaehs’ dress is a blush pink color with intricate sequin bead detailing and scalloped bottom, where as Elizabeth’s is more satin at top and tulle at the bottom. I would have added ribbons or bows for their hair, but my girls have never been real big on hair bows and clips. Sandals were the last touch as it’s summer and sandals, flats, little girl heels, what have you are appropriate even with these fancy little dresses.
I went with my red Lularoe Nicole dress and choose white accessories to compliment the girls outfits. This red dress is perfect for that transition from summer to fall too as it’s a warm dress made from quality material here in the United States, which is AWESOME!
I knew I wanted to wear flats or low heeled shoes and these white shoes fit the need. For weddings I think it is important to wear comfortable shoes (or at least bring an extra pair) in case there is dancing or walking to reception or chapel grounds. In fact these shoes inspired the finding of this statement necklace that I rarely wear and I think these add a whole other element of crisp and freshness to the dress.
Below you will find a few collages and notice that Ada and her daughter miss Vivian look adorable. Ada is styling an equally lovely red dress. See what she has to say about their looks by checking out her blog here.
