The ceremony was held outdoors at a serene little park. Unfortunately, it drizzled the whole time, so all of the guests and the wedding party got rained on. Of course, it could have been much worse. Originally the weather forecast predicted thunderstorms, and the chairs were arranged under a cluster of tall trees! Luckily no T-storms arrived, but it was still no fun to sit through 30 minutes of spritzing. The moment they were pronounced man and wife, everyone rushed to get under the nearby tent where the reception was set up.
Here's a picture of what we wore to the wedding. There wasn't really a specified dress code, so I went with casual garden attire. It was the perfect opportunity to wear this raw silk floral Ann Taylor dress that I thrifted from Goodwill a few years ago for $5. It was a little baggy, so I took it to the tailor the week before the wedding and had them reinsert the back zipper for $25. I also wore my "special occasion" metallic Vivs, which got a lot of compliments. The groomsmen were allowed to wear their own suits (as long as they were navy or grey), but the couple got them all matching french cuff shirts and bowties.
|Please excuse my hair. The humidity took its toll.|
A few days after we got back from the wedding, I came down with a nasty cold. In fact, it was probably one of the worst colds I've had in the last five years. My throat really hurt, I had a horrible wracking cough, and there was even a low-grade fever. It basically took me out of commission until last Wednesday when I finally started to feel better. Since I was out sick for so long, now I've fallen quite behind on research and need to play catch up.
This was the only thing he snagged in-store. I was just happy that he managed to get anything.
Anyway, so that's what I've been up to this month. How was your April (and your Lilly for Target experience)?
