#MarriageChronicles 06: Too Many Dresses?
Hellurr…. It’s the last few days in February and it’s been as tightly packed as ever. How has your week been? What eventful thing has happened? I’d love to know!! I apologize for not posting anything on style yesterday, it was just one long, blessed day!!! *sigh*. I really should start scheduling weekly though. God help me. Anybody remember this Superhuman song?? Chris Brown and Keri? Oh I’ve missed it!!
So it’s #marriagechronicles Thursday and dresses are the matter of the day. How many dresses are too much for your wedding?? This post was inspired by my friend Chi! Shout out to her, I hope she’s reading. But she’s having 5 dresses on standby! Hahaha. Hold up before you scream, there’s one for engagement barbecue the night before, the ball gown for church, the reception dress, I think another for the after party, then the last one on standby for when she decides to wear a dress on Sunday. Oh dear!
If you know me personally, you’d know how much I love weddings. Dresses are part of the many reasons I do. The beauty of the dresses and suit of the couple. I have no problem if you wear 6 dresses, as long as they’re mighty cute and the order of the day is properly structured to allow you go back and forth to change on your big day. You don’t want to miss any part of your wedding. Some wear just a dress and maybe take off the train at the reception. Some wear another dress at the reception which I think is the most common practice in Nigeria.
Weddings these days intrigue me and inspire lots of ideas. I’m not sure I know how many dresses I’ll be wearing when my big day comes…maybe 21! Hahaha. My opinion though is, if you can afford it, then by all means. But please, it don’t make sense to go a-borrowing, just to meet a standard. Stay within your limit.
Now for the question. How many dresses would you wear?? Why?? Drop your comment below! You know how much I love to read from you.
Have a lovely Thursday!!
*hugs and kisses*
Live. Love. Laugh. Look. Better
