Here we are in the middle of the holiday hustle and bustle and you get invited to a wedding! Stop what you’re doing and head to the chapel to see two people promise to love and cherish one another. This time of year is a perfect time for weddings with all the halls already decked in their holiday finest. But now you have to do the same with yourself – get dressed in your finest and celebrate a happy union.
Speaking of happy unions today is another collaboration with Ada of Elegance and Mommyhood.. I can’t wait to see what everyone decides to wear!
Admittedly it’s been awhile since we’ve been to a wedding. We’re in that stage of life where our friends are all married and our kids aren’t quite old enough to. I’m sure that will all change in a few years though!
I chose a simple yet classic black faux wrap dress (similar,plus size option). Mine is several years old and it’s from Target! I found it on the clearance rack one day for less than $10! It is an incredible dress with a built in shaper.
My black boots (similar) are comfortable and dressy enough to wear to a wedding. I added a short leopard coat (similar) because it was chilly.
My necklace (option) is another oldie but goodie. It’s from the Betsey Johnson line at Macy’s. It’s a lot of fun and with a plain black dress it takes up the glamour factor just enough. My bracelet is a terrific wardrobe staple. You can dress it up or down. I’m carrying a simple black clutch, just big enough for lipstick and my phone! I also need to add that if my mom reads this she will not like my hair. At. All. I’m sorry mom, if I was actually going to a wedding it would look better (promise!).

Now let’s see what all the other ladies are wearing, shall we?
Kellyann: “This time of year I am reaching for something with a little glamour yet comfortable. This faux wrap dress in black is a classic piece but by adding a fun statement necklace and my short leopard coat I’ve added a little glamour.”
Kristin: “Would you guess that two of the items in my winter wedding look are secondhand? This black and white printed dress and coat are both thrifted! I’m talking about where I thrift in my post as well as my aversion to tights… I don’t care how cold it is, if I have the choice I’ll take my chances with bare legs!”
Whitney: “I’m not actually attending any weddings this season. If I were, I probably would have wanted to buy a pretty, new holiday dress. But instead, this post was a good exercise in wardrobe remixing!”
Chrissy: “When I think “Christmas wedding” I think silvers, blacks, reds etc, but I couldn’t resist going with this deep burgundy, ruffle top and floral skirt. These colors are everywhere right now!”
Ada: “A little black dress in velvet is the perfect dress to wear for a December Wedding since it is the Holiday season. Velvet is the IT Material of the season – so rich, elegant, dressy and beautiful. I love that this dress is in a midi length which makes it Wintery and for a pop of color I chose a coral python clutch, blush velvet pumps with a blush pink lace choker and red lipstick. I’d also wear this elegant floral kimono jacket over the dress to keep myself warm and layers are a must for a Winter Wedding or Holiday Party.”
Monica: “I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season before. As always, thanks Ada for the fun collab! Today I’ve decided that for a holiday wedding I want to be comfortable and wear pants. I paired the pants with a fun pearl top.”
Linda: “Going for a Winter Wedding on New Years Look: Heels to start off for the more traditional look and of course a great pair of chucks for dancing into the night. I do have a shawl I will wear to cover my shoulders but heck, how fun is this amazing sequin dress from Charlotte Russe paired with J Crew Pumps or black converse.”
Jennie – “A black jumpsuit is an elegant look perfect for weddings, especially in winter when you also want to stay warm. Topping it off with a bit of sparkle makes it perfectly festive for the season!”
Christine: “What I love most about this silver metallic pleated skirt is the fit and how flowy it is. This is such an elegant and chic outfit to wear to a Holiday Winter Wedding. Simply dress it up with a black satin camisole, fishnet tights, classic black pumps and layer your favorite winter coat et voila!”
Shelbee: “For my winter wedding outfit, I went for more of a dressy casual look with layered little black dresses: a button front shirt dress over a body con dress. I kept my accessories simple with a gold link floral necklace and a black clutch. Then I let my bright pink heeled loafers be the statement. My feeling is you can never go wrong with a little black dress and some fabulous shoes for just about any occasion!”
