It was such an honor (and so much FUN) to be a bridesmaid in one of my best friend’s weddings in France. She was the most relaxed bride ever! She let all of her bridesmaid pick whatever dress they wanted to wear. She said “Wear your favorite dress!” (how cool). I opted for this strapless soft dove gray tulle dress by Jenny Yoo, because I love tulle and this was a good excuse to wear it. All of the bridesmaids got our hair done at a charming local hair salon. There were two women doing hair, who spoke very little English, and an older lady in the salon who was very amused by all of the bridesmaids. One of my favorite memories is when the photographer (one of the other bridesmaid’s brothers) had to translate “bigger curls” to the hair dresser for another bridesmaid. I picked these wildflowers for my hair, and was pretty pleased with the turnout. You instantly feel more special when you have flowers in your hair! I paired my dress with my black strappy block sandals. They are the perfect height to walk easily (or dance!) and I wore them the entire night. The block heel also came in handy for an outdoor wedding.
The final picture is of the bride and her father in a carriage on their way to the chapel. I miss this fairytale French wedding!
