Welcome to the Wedding Wednesday link-up hosted by yours truly and Kristyn from Chits & Giggles!
Link-up below, ladies!

Remember, you don't have to be a bride-to-be to participate! We want to hear any (and every!) wedding story you have!

On to this week's post!

I just got back from an amazing trip in New Orleans, so I'm going to keep this nice and short by recapping the wedding we attended. I'll recap the rest of the trip on Thursday!

First of all, I was a thrifty wedding guest. I did my own hair and make-up, reused a bridesmaid dress, and rented a necklace from Rent the Runway.


I loved wearing this nifty necklace.


By the way, if you're interested in my experience with Rent the Runway or how I did my hair, let me know. I had a couple questions on Instagram and may just write up posts about both topics. I never review stuff or do my hair, let alone talk about how I style it when I do, so I feel like a narcissist right now.

Back to the wedding!

The wedding was Saturday at the gorgeous Elms Mansion in the New Orleans Garden District. It is such a charming location!

I loved when a street car passed during the ceremony and all of the passengers cheered for the bride and groom!




I didn't take enough photos of this beautiful venue, mainly because my pictures don't do it justice.

We had a lovely time celebrating Andrew's cousin's wedding and are so excited for the happy couple!!!

Have you attended any weddings yet this "season," especially now since it's June?

Beautiful wedding and I love your hair - I'm thinking we need to see a tutorial. I just made my first Rent the Runway selection and am so excited to receive it to wear to a wedding in a few weeks.

Yes to the hair post! I never wear mine up (my mother told me, repeatedly, at a young age, that my ears are too big and stick out, so never wear your hair up. Heck, she still says that.) but I would love to see how you did it! It's so pretty!
