I’m going to a wedding in a few weeks in Palm Springs and I’ve been really struggling with what the heck to wear. Palm Springs is about 75-80 degrees during the day in December, but it actually does get cold at night (like 50’s). So as I’ve been searching for something CUTE, but also something I won’t freeze my ass off in, I thought it might be a good blog post! I can’t be the only one thinking about this, right?
Also, someone asked me recently if it’s OK to wear black to a wedding. I feel like the answer used to be a big fat HELL NO, but now, I don’t think that’s true. I’ve seen people wear black to a wedding. I think the connotation that black is a funeral color is outdated, and most people now consider black at a wedding to be classic and chic. When I showed Rob this dress, the first thing out of his mouth was “Black, really?”.
What are your thoughts on this? Would you wear black? If you’ve been a bride, did people wear black to your wedding? I’m really curious!
I found a few articles on the topic that I thought were interesting…
Rob and I took a trip to Upstate New York for his best friend’s wedding a few weekends ago and we had a TON of fun so I wanted to share the photos of our trip with you. Also- if you read this ENTIRE post, there will be a lovely surprise at the end (hint- my boyfriend makes a great JT).
For our first night we had a bonfire at the Groom’s house- I can’t remember the last time I got to sit by a fire with friends and make smores.
The next day we got up and the boys went golfing– I was Rob’s driver and caddy, even though I couldn’t tell the difference between the clubs. Then we went to the wedding rehearsal and dinner– I loved hanging out getting to know all of Rob’s best friends and hearing about their childhood shenanigans.
Once dinner wrapped up, we went to play some mini golf (because nine holes of golf in the morning just didn’t cut it). We had a blast and our team won (obviously!).
The next day was the day of the wedding so Rob was up bright and early to partake in “groomsmen duties”. The ceremony was beautiful, short and sweet. Adrianne looked incredible and Ben was very handsome!
After a short break for drinks and food at a local bar, we headed to the wedding reception- which was tons of fun from the very moment it started. The boys even did a little “BYE BYE BYE” rendition that was probably the best thing I’ve ever seen.
And we might have had a little too much fun with the photobooth…
Our flight was EARLY the next morning so we crashed and headed to the airport. We were flying stand-by and ended up getting stuck in the Charlotte airport for just about 7 hours. I have to say, it was not the most fun I’ve ever had, but I wouldn’t have wanted to be with anyone else but Rob. He knows how to make me laugh even at my crabbiest of times.
We also made good use of our airport experience by eating some delicious Carolina Pit BBQ and finished it off with Pinkberry! (And I’m convinced that all airports should have a Pinkberry inside– it makes layovers MUCH more tolerable.)
And lastly, I want to post this gem. Rob’s friends were all incredibly welcoming and sweet to me– and the same goes for his wonderful family! They are the sweetest people and made me feel comfortable right off the bat. I can’t wait to get back to NY soon. We miss everyone already and had the BEST time!
