This past weekend I attended a wedding of some very close friends in France. It was very hot but gorgeous weather, and I'd been dress hunting for a while until I found this outfit. Sorry for the horrible cropping but my boyfriend did not want to be published on my blog. The necklace and earrings are Swarovski, a gift from my boyfriend for Christmas a few years ago. Dress and clutch are from a department store in Switzerland, and the white shawl was a gift from my boyfriend's mother a few years back; it has some beading on the ends.
I wish I could have gotten a better FOTD shot of my makeup and my hair, but time was pressing so I just didn't have time before we had to rush off to the Church for the ceremony. It was a rather amusing ceremony as the priest seemed almost drunk, the reception offered lots of delicious hors d'oeuvres and drinks, followed by a sit-down dinner for 120 or so guests followed by live music, dancing, and copious amounts of alcohol. Was all good fun but I'd never want such an elaborate, huge wedding for myself. I would prefer to keep it more low-key and simple.

The next day we all had a bit of a hangover from the alcohol but there was a luncheon to attend, where we stuffed ourselves again with Alsacienne food and more wine! Finally at around 4pm we started our drive home, by dinner time we were back home in Switzerland. It was really fun and I can't wait to see the pro photos from their wedding photographer soon.
