Getting ready for a wedding reception

Details...

My outfit for a wedding reception

I have only ever been to 2 weddings in my life and I was far too young to even remember them... So when my boyfriend asked me to be his plus one to a reception I was excited to plan an outfit and get dolled up!

Makeup

I will start with how I got myself dolled up for the occasion... Here are all the products I used:

Foundation 
- Rimmel Wake me up

Concealer 
- Mac pro long wear

Bronzer 
- Bobbi Brown

Highlighter 
- Benefit high beam & NARS powder

Eyeshadow 
- Urban Decay: Naked Palette, Liar & Factory

Eyeshadow highlighter 
- YSL full metal shadow

Eyeliner 
- Stila smudge pot

Mascara primer 
- Chanel

Mascara 
- Fairy Drops (I also wore fake eyelashes from Eylure)

Eyebrows 
- Anastasia Beverly Hills dip pot

Lipstick 
- MAC Ruby Woo (in the photo but not worn)

The outfit

When it comes to a wedding it is hard to decide what to wear. Whenever it is a family wedding you know that you can spend a lot of money and wear as much glitz and glam as possible. But when it is your partners friend and you won't know many people it is a lot harder...

I think I balanced glitz and glam quite well alongside with not spending much.

Dress 
- Primark

Necklace 
- Topshop

Bag 
- Chanel

Shoes 
- Office (not in this photo but scroll down to see)

The finished look.. 
My whole outfit!
I hope you've enjoyed this post and it gives inspiration to anyone struggling!
