Milanoo and I Do's

I was honoured to be invited to the most chic Wedding in Newcastle, in one of the most beautiful parts of Northern Ireland. I was disappointed in myself for having never been there before until the evening before the Wedding. I stayed in a gorgeous hotel on the foot on the Mourne Mountains.

Weeks before I was apprehensive about what I was going to wear. Choosing what to wear as a guest to Weddings always makes me feel somewhat anxious as I never want to draw too much attention to my choice of attire. This is because I believe that the day belongs to the Bride and her Bridesmaids. When I see people at a Wedding wearing white I feel like it’s the utmost form of disrespect for the Bride.

That's why I chose to wear Green.

During my moments of pondering Milanoo, my new favourite and affordable website, were so kind to offer me a few items of clothing of my choice. It just so happens that when I browsed their items I spotted the dress I knew I would wear to the wedding.

I decided to add a subtle Grecian theme to my dress with touches of bronze from my shoes and jewellery. I wore Mac’s ‘Frost’ lipstick which has the most beautiful iridescent hint of Orange-Bronze.
My Boyfriend, one of the Groomsmen, looked so sharp in his suit and I thought the Navy was a nice complementary colour to my dress. (He also got to wear braces- a personal favourite)

I’ve teamed up with Milanoo so a reader can be in with a chance to win $20 to spend on their website. So keep an eye out for details very soon. 

In the meantime have a look at their website to see if there are any items you would like.
