What To Wear To Your Brother’s Wedding

What To Wear To Your Brother’s Wedding

t’s a bit of a spesh outfit post on Smaggle today – my outfit for my brother’s wedding!

He got married last week to his long-time partner who I love very much. I just love weddings where the couple getting married is a no brainer and you can just hang out with people and have a grand old time.

The wedding was super casual – held at a bar and there wasn’t really a dress code. I borrowed this dress from Nikki from Styling You for a wedding I was a bridesmaid in a year ago and I just loved it. It’s so glam and so comfy. It’s like wearing a giant sequinned t-shirt. I can also dance like a mofo in it. I don’t like being restricted in my dancing and this is like wearing sports gear. I can go full Beyonce in this. I wore this to another wedding and almost completed ‘the lift’ from Dirty Dancing in it.

I also somehow managed to not get a proper outfit shot – I’m the worst blogger in the world – but here’s a photo of my whole family. And no – my dress matching the brides was not planned. Giant accident. No one cared (least of all the bride) but I did die a little inside. People who wear white to weddings are the actual worst and now I feel like I’m one of them. Sob!

Leona Edmiston dress borrowed (for the third time!) from the lovely Nikki – this dress is no longer available but if anyone sees one anywhere second hand, please let me know. I want this dress in my life forever – size 4 please.

I did wear shoes but I wasn’t allowed to wear heels on the bowls grass. I wore a nude closed toe, dolly style shoe for those who are interested.

That moment when your sister-in-law wears a similar dress to your bridal gown at your own damn wedding. Am I right?

There’s honestly not too much to report from the wedding but it was bloody good fun. It was my first proper night drinking alcohol all year so I took it easy and wasn’t even hung over the next day. In fact Mr Smaggle and I were tucked into bed with cups of tea just before midnight. Ace.
