Wedding Diaries | A Tale Of 3 Dresses (Part 1)

We had a wedding to attend on the weekend and we were super excited as it's a close family wedding. I did plan for this post to be up on the weekend as a wardrobe preview but Nigar forgot the camera at home (face palm). 

We'd all decided to wear maxi dresses (can't remember the actual reason...) and it was a great decision. 

Nigar's outfit:

She chose a gorgeous custom made dusky pink Elie Saab inspired gown with a train. It was so pretty. She did plan on wearing the dress with the blue shoes for a pop of colour but they were too uncomfortable for her when she tried them on (she sprained her ankle a few months ago and hasn't been able to wear heels much) so she wore a different pair. 

My outfit:

I got this dress which had beads on the upper part and plain from the waist down. It was too long for me (coz am a shorty) and I had to get it shortened. This dress also had a small train. I chose some mid heels with a pop of colour and they were very comfortable. I had them on for about 7 hours and they did not hurt at all (and I was constantly on my feet). The beading work was really pretty. It looks white in the pictures but it was more of a soft cream colour in person. 

Mum's outfit:

Mum's outfit was really heavy. It's a soft nude colour maxi dress with beading all over. She chose these gorgeous glittery shoes. She's not normally a heels person but she did say these weren't uncomfortable. While her outfit looks the plainest, she did look the best on the night! She looked like a princess.

How would you style these dresses? How would you do your hair and makeup? What's your favourite? 
Check back on Wednesday to see how we actually wore them on the day. 

Have a great day.
