My Wedding Guest Outfit

Happy Sunday you little piglets.

I dunno about you but I’m sat in my pants on the sofa with a belly fully of Domino’s finest (a stuffed crust, barbecue base pepperoni pizza with extra jalapenos just FYI), waiting for Lauren Conrad’s reveal-all episode of The Hills.

I. AM. BUZZING.

Anyway, we went to a Chris’s brother’s wedding yesterday, and I did manage to film a little Get Ready With Me video although LOL half of it is on my phone because Chris forgot to charge my camera and LOL again because the video ends with me projectile shooting champagne out of my mouth because I tried to down some from the bottle and it went up my nose.

Quite a few of you asked for dress and lipstick deets over on Instagram, so I thought I’d throw together a quick post with links to where everything is from.

Although, as, ahem, there was no camera battery, all snaps in this post come from my beloved iPhone, so I hope you’re down for a bit of old-school blog photography.

I actually picked up the dress from ASOS (shop here) months and months ago after featuring it in a wish list post at the start of the year – it’s since been released in a petite version which I *think* is in the sale.

After a fortnight of eating rocket and sweet potato and being a ridiculously boring slave to MyFitnessPal, I managed to fit into it without cutting off oxygen supply to my internal organs which was pretty dandy, and it did make me feel a *bit* like a princess. I love the bardot shape and the big full, swishy skirt.

I completed my wedding guest look with a pair of sparkly heels, also from ASOS – although maaaaaaan did they make me feel like someone was carving my toes into beautiful statues and a glitter box clutch from New Look.

OH, and a new gold necklace with a lily pendant that Chris bought me as a surprise. I think I was so taken aback that hang the sweet eff on, HE’S BOUGHT ME JEWELLERY, that I rambled something about it reminding me of Lily from Harry Potter.

Good one, Hannah.

Make-up wise I went for a Dior Star foundation base because it’s a bit heavier than my go-to bareMinerals Complexion Rescue, without y’know, making my face look like a sandcastle. I used the Charlotte Tilbury Face-In-A-Palette for my blush and bronze, and then my Barry M strobe cream stick for the most on-fleek highlight seen in Essex yesterday.

For my eyes I used a muted pink shadow across my lid, topped with a pink shimmer from this bareMinerals palette – which I also dragged along my lower lash line and then used a gold shimmer from the same palette for the inner corner of my eye.

AND THEN THESE LASHES FROM EYELURE. They’re not pre-glued like the Express ones I love so much, as I couldn’t hunt any out in Ipperz last week, but they are a petite size which means they’re a lot harder to go wrong with. I soaked them in glue and they stayed put for 18 hours. Including maybe doing a teeny tiny prosecco sick around midnight.

Don’t hate the player, alright?

For brows I used Barry M’s It’s A Brow Thing and finished off the look with a slick of NYX Matte Lip Creme in Stockholm on my lips, with a bit of a Barry M lip liner in ‘Blush’.

I had the dreamiest day, but I’m just saying, if one more person goes ‘lol, you’ll be next’ or ‘when are you two getting married then?’ I might just jump face first into a wedding cake and stay there until the sugar decays my soul.

Anyway peace out, I’m off to make a pot of tea and stay glued to MTV. MUCH EXCITE.

  • Now I know why this is the dress of your dreams, my god its stunning! I’m playing the waiting game with all the floaty non-white Self Portrait inspired stuff on ASOS as I have three weddings to go to next year and this completely floats my boat and I may have to just steal it. Also heading to Boots asap to get that NYX shade, I’m in love with my bright pink Milano one and just need Stockholm!

  • Love your outfit hannah – it’s so you! I find for events like this I struggle as my style is very casual. It’s nice t be able to dress like ‘you’ but nail it at the same time!

    Sophie Cliff

  • Absolutely LOVE this dress! and the shoes – giant heart eyes over here.

    Also, have you watched any of Jodie Marsh’s youtube video’s (lol stay with me here!) she did a make up tutorial and revealed her fool proof lash trick and OMG it’s changed my life. Basically – put the glue along your eye line rather than on the lashes! Then the lashes go on easy peasy as the only place they can stick is to the glue you’ve applied which is in the correct place! – game changer!

    • WOAH. I NEED TO TRY THIS. Way preferred these petite ones to the usual ones that are for alien size eyes but will abso try that trick next time! xxx

  • Michaela

    Love this! Your make up is so pretty!

    I really want to try my hair like this, do you use a curling wand to get this look? Could you recommend any particular one?

    Thanks
