Wedding Attire

Wearing: BCBG Dress, Banana Republic Necklace and Pumps, Plum Clutch

Am I the only one who panics a bit when picking a dress out to wear to a wedding? I probably over think it but I always worry about being over dressed (don't want to look like you're competing with the bride) or under dressed (a sign of disrespect), you don't want to wear the same colour as the bridal party (accidental brides mail wannabe) and you obviously can't wear white.

Luckily my amazing friend Jessica found this dress for me and while I generally shy away from yellow out of habit (someone told me once that blondes shouldn't wear yellow) as soon as I put this dress on I fell in love. After all, it has pockets.

I didn't wear this necklace during the ceremony to keep it simple, but added some glitz for the reception.

Congratulations again Bernelle and Wilson! Such a lovely wedding!


  1. I love that dress, yellow is one of my favorite colors!

    Weddings give me nightmares, I never know what to wear. I have one coming up in September and I'm hoping to find something appropriate.


  2. You look gorgeous!! I love this dress on you! And I so hear you, I always shy away from yellow, even though I love it, as most shades of it look awful with my hair & skin tone, but I think this one is gorgeous on you! So, so pretty, my friend!

  3. I love yellow color and this mellow shade looks perfect on u + divine dress! Gorgeous took prefect for

  4. Who says blondes shouldn't wear yellow? That just sounds silly to me, and you've clearly disproven it anyway, since this dress looks amazing on you! And it has pockets. How could you possibly have gone wrong? ;)

  5. I love the cheery yellow Melissa!

  6. Love this outfit! The dress looks amazing on you! The person who said yellow doesn't look good on blondes clearly had no idea ;-)

  7. love ur yellow dress! it looks amazing on u!

  8. I'm the exact same way, I do not even own yellow. One time I bought a yellow dress though and I got tons of compliments. I never though blondes could wear it either. But the first thing I thought of when I saw this post was how pretty the yellow looked on you especially with those nude heels. You totally could have worn the necklace during the vows!

  9. I love it!! I definitely get a little crazy when deciding what to wear to weddings, really any occasion!! You look great though :)

  10. Simply, and utterly, stunning. Yellow is fantastic on you and the shape of the dress is perfection. You look gorgeous!

  11. very pretty! i'm going to a wedding too this weekend and i'm also wearing a one shoulder number in a bright colour. except mine is cobalt blue - very Kate Middleton =) Plus I have to rock the fascinator

    love your nude shoes.

  12. I'm seriously IN LOVE with this dress. So, if you ever decide you want to get rid of it, I'll be glad to buy it off of you! :) The color, the pleats, the shape, AND THE POCKETS. So pretty!

  13. Such a beautiful dress, I love the color on you!

  14. This is a beautiful dress! You're right - it's tricky finding the right thing to wear to a wedding. I recently wore a red dress, and although I was skeptical at first, I think it ended up being totally appropriate and not too flashy.

    p.s. I'm a blonde, and yellow is one of my favorite colors to wear!
