“Elegant Vintage” that was the theme for my friends wedding in Houston a few months ago. It was a very beautiful and warm May afternoon and we had just driven 26hours in 2 days from Maryland. It was our first road trip together to Texas and we did it so we could drive down some of our belongings, since we were relocating within a few months to Houston. It was also the first time I was a passenger in a car for over an hour without falling asleep (lol). I had to stay up to keep hubby company and be on the look out while he drove.
The wedding was beautiful, from the grand hall to the fabulous deco and guests. We also had different forms of entertainment at the wedding like the dancing performance by the bride with her sisters, the singing by the groom with his high school/college boys, fun games about the event, a magic show and fireworks to end the night. It was definitely memorable and so much fun.
Since the theme was “Elegant Vintage”, I decided to put my hair in a simple french braid and go with a floral A-line maxi dress that I bought from a small boutique in New York over a year ago. I also chose to accessorize with gold sequined clutch purse, jewelry, sandals and a headband like that of the 1920s. I’m not sure if I pulled it off but I know I felt fabulous and I got lots of compliments at the wedding.
