Punk Rock Country Chic Wedding

I got this "David's Bridal Plum Y Neck Charmeuse" dress at a thrift store for $15 (it retails for close to $75). I splurged and took it to Zip's Dry Cleaners for a $1.99 wash and press and now it looks like it's never been worn!

My friend Samantha's wedding is October 12th. Because she is one of the coolest, laid back girls ever, she is totally cool with me wearing Glitter Combat boots to accentuate the Y Neck of my Bridesmaid dress.

The wedding is outdoors on a crisp, fall day and she didn't want the Bridesmaid's to wear pesky high heels that would puncture the beautiful field where she and her future husband will say their "I do's". She suggested a sensible pair of flats or thick boots if we were afraid of cold feet. I know Samantha and her fiance will NOT have cold feet, but my toes are always chattering.

After the glitter boot approval, I was starting to feel extra excited for Samantha's Big Day. I searched for images of my dress so I could work on my eccentric accessorizing. Turns out everyone else who has worn this particular dress is a complete weirdo too. Whether rocking it with cheesy sunglasses or witness protection style face cutouts, this dress can handle any style.

My fellow Bridesmaid and best friend Erica hopes to make floral, nature goddess crowns for us to wear while accompanying Samantha down the aisle. I already know that my bouquet will be made of daisies, so I am imagining a hairpiece to match. 

This wedding is going to KICK BUTT! Samantha told me that her fiance, Andy said "HELL YES to Gold Combat Boots!" 

I told her that if she changes her mind, I'll marry him based on glitter acceptance alone <3
