After a year unlike any other, the idea of slipping on a pretty dress and celebrating the nuptials of your closet friends and family is a welcomed thought.
Weddings have always been a joyful occasion filled with love and laughter. They spark memories you’ll treasure for a lifetime and photographs you fondly frame and place on your mantel.
This year? Weddings will also double up as happy reunions as so many of us will see loved ones we’ve been keeping our distance from live and in person for the first time in what feels like forever. At last, there won’t be a need for a strong WiFi connection and that is a special occasion indeed. It’s also one worthy of a seriously fantastic outfit!
