Wedding Weekend

Dress: Kohl's | Belt: Similar (here) | Shoes: Payless | Clutch, Bracelet & Rings: Forever 21

I wore this to the wedding we attended on Saturday back in Houston (Santa Fe to be exact). Those of you that live in this area know the weather was straight up rainy and nasty allllll day.  And with rain comes the humidity times 100. Thus, the hair that you see in these photos. I have no idea why I even attempted to put one ounce of hairspray in my hair. My the end of the night it was a sticky, don't even think about touching it mess. But, you know what? Nobody cared. We were too busy doing the Wobble and breaking out our Apple Bottom Jeans.

 
Friday night was the rehearsal dinner. And any true Texan serves BBQ or Mexican food for dinner. Thank God they decided on the latter. You guys know how much Momma loves her margs and Mexican food. That handsome man and gorgeous blonde are the bride and groom.  And that picture on the bottom left just proves that we don't play when it comes to fajitas, chips, salsa and tequila flavored drinks. Can you say hot mess of a table? Okay, go ahead you can say it...we are PIGS!

Like I said on Friday, the wedding reception was held a winery and the rain and humidity couldn't stop our parade. We had our fair share of the winery's homemade goodness, throw your back out dance moves, catching up with old friends, Houston humidity and best of all witnessing two amazing people start their lives together. Conratulations, Trey and Whitney! You and your families know how to throw one heck of a celebration. I would bet my bank account that half the guests hated themselves Sunday morning. I will say I was not one of them...I actually, somewhat, behaved myself for once. I think I was still recovering from the margs on Friday.

So what were you crazy kids up to this weekend? I bet a bunch of you where enjoying the cooler temps (Hallelujah) and gearing up for Halloween month! I can't believe today is October 1st! Bring on the hunt for costumes, jack-o-lanterns and lots of candy!

That dress is to die for. I could never wear it though. My 6 foot frame makes short dresses look like hooker apparel on me.

That dress just makes me love Kohl's even more.

That dress is super gorgeous and still affordable! I have a wedding to go to on Saturday and I'm considering buying a new dress but I have a few in my closet that would suffice so I don't know what to do. Decisions decisions!

Wow, you look stunning! Soooo loving the black flower belt! How did your hair stay so smooth in that crazy rain? You know I live in Houston and my hair grew to the size of Monica's on that friends episode after every time that I straightened it that day (which happened to be 3 times)!

I am glad to hear you behaved. But you drank so many margaritas on Friday night a flower grew out your side. Must of been some damn good plant food.

Kat@shop.school.sleep. said...

Aw I haven't been to a wedding this year...looks like you had a fabulous time!! The dress looks fabulous as does the hair (thou it may not have been in real life according to you) Winery weddings are fun, free wine is better than the alcoholic drinks in my opinion :)

meghan said...

You're so pretty. Your hair looks great! And look at you with that fashion blogger's stance in the last picture. Nice work. Are you turning pro soon? :-)

This dress is just gorgeous and you look SO pretty in it, Shanna! The all over lace is so feminine and delicate and your belt is just the right accessory for the dress! It seems as you had a a lot of fun at the wedding!

That dress is stunning...how did I manage to miss this at Kohl's AND your hair looks wayyyy better than mine does in humidity. I honestly have NO CLUE how women manage to do their hair at all in the south. I would always look like a crazy, frizzy fool!

Sugarr2518 said...

Love your outfit!! That is really pretty amazing on you!

Brittany said...

Visiting from the link up, I love that dress. And the whole time I read this I was imagining your southern accent :)
