My wedding style: a collaboration

New fashions added daily at

I don’t know about you, but I’ve found myself at plenty of weddings and also in several weddings over the last several years. I suppose it’s because I’m 29 and everyone but myself (okay that’s an exaggeration) is getting hitched. The thing is, I’m not one of those bitter people. I really, REALLY love weddings. I love wearing dresses and love any excuse to wear one! Furthermore, when my friends ask me to be their bridesmaid, I’m overjoyed. I love being there for my friends and helping them in any way I can.

So when Ada from Elegance and Mommyhood approached me about a wedding style collaboration, I of course said yes. In fact, there are six of us collaborating today! This dress is absolutely perfect for a wedding and in a less-expected color: green! I love dark green and feel like I look best in it, so I had to order this from Modcloth. In fact, I had been eyeing it for about a year before purchasing it.

For some of you, this dress may look familiar. It was the dress I wore in my post Green is one of my colors and how to find yours. I was happy to show it off again, of course!

When picking out a dress to wear to a wedding, you want to pick something that you look good in but also doesn’t take attention away from the bride. After all, it’s not your big day. This dress seemed perfect for that. I wore it to the rehearsal dinner of my friend Sara.

My bridesmaid dresses

I thought I'd post my bridesmaid dresses because why not? Both were bought at David's bridal. The blue one is called the versa because there are literally about 10 different ways you can wear it.

    1. Awesome! I was sad to see that Modcloth doesn’t have quite that one any more! Ah well …

  1. You look great Nina and this rich jewel shade of green is your color. Plus I think a fancy lace dress in a fit+flare style is always a great option for a wedding. I love the nude sandals you chose here and the black flower necklace pops. Thank you for being part of this.

    When I said from Spain, I only meant that you currently blog from Spain. I mentioned the countries/places each of us blog from/live currently: 6 women form different areas in the world joined by the beauty of dresses that all of us love to wear! I cannot wait for all of us to do this again for the Winter, =)

    Have a great Tuesday babe!

    1. Thanks Ada! And no worries about the Spain thing … I just thought it was funny. Today marks two months here in Spain for me. And yes, I’d love to do this again in the winter!

  2. The lace and bow on that dress are beautiful, and I love how you paired it with cognac! I’m so obsessed with cognac right now it’s not even funny. I’m glad we collaborated for fall wedding style!

    1. Okay not going to lie … had to look up what cognac was, lol. But yes, those shoes seemed to just go with everything. I’m glad we collaborated too! Your blog is awesome!

  3. What a beautiful dress – that is a great pick to wear as a guest to a wedding 🙂 Love the idea for this post – so clever! All of you ladies look gorgeous! I’m 29 as well, so I totally get the part about having SO many weddings to attend 🙂

  4. I like dresses that aren’t restricting you from moving or eating! Everything that you featured looks super comfy and perfect for the occasion!

  5. I love wearing green! I love this green lace dress and you are right it would be perfect for a wedding. I enjoy flowy dresses that I can have a good time in.

  6. The green lace dress looks so elegant and fashionable. You looked great wearing it. The sash accent really made it stand out. I love the color green too, usually the darker shades of it, like emerald green.

  7. Green is actually my favorite color too!. Grant it, it does look better on women but I actually chose it for my tux color as a high school student for my prom dance and I think when I finally do get married, I’ll definitely try to incorporate it into that ensemble as well.

  8. I like the green dress. It is simple and elegant. I love the blue dress. May bluer is closer to my favorite color. And the shoes a classy and look comfy which for a wedding and standing is important.
