This summer, in June and July I'm invited to two weddings and I'm really really looking forward to them! So much actually that I've been driving everyone around me just a little bit insane, so with this post I'll now try and annoy you all as well. You're welcome!
These two weddings feel even extra special as the brides-to-be are very close friends of mine and I'll even be doing the makeup on one of the brides which is very exciting. We had our wedding makeup trial and it went really well - the standouts were MAC Satin Taupe, Shu Uemura P Pink 30 blush and a Collistar lipstick in the colour Cameo. She looked beautiful and the makeup stayed on all day. Of course with all the excitement there comes the typical "what to wear" question. For the wedding in July I will have my bridesmaid dress made by the mother of the groom. The fabric is a beautiful bright magenta "cotton cady" (and no I've never heard of this fabric before either) and the best part is that all the bridesmaids got to choose the design for the dress.
The neckline of my dress is very similar to the one on the above dress except that mine will have capped sleeves and the skirt will be fuller. I will show you a photo of the dress as soon as it's done, my first fitting is in two weeks.
And this is the clutch that I got in Accessorize - I actually went shoe-shopping and came back with a bag, typical.
It's just the prettiest clutch I've ever seen (that might be an overstatement but it is very pretty). Now all I have to find are the shoes, jewellery and of course the entire outfit for the second wedding. Not much, right?
And now for the makeup and hair - I found this photo on BEAUTYEDITOR.CA (I love Michelle's website and her recaps of the red carpet looks are the best) and instantly fell in love with the slightly messy low side bun. The makeup looks lovely as well although I think that bright pink lips with a bright pink dress might be a little bit over the top.

If you have any advice on wedding makeup please share - I'm still searching for a good highlighter but I think we've got all the other basics covered. I will make sure to post the photos of the makeup and dresses that I'll wear to the weddings and maybe, if the brides will let me, even the photos of their beautiful dresses.
