My cousin’s wedding weekend in Virginia Beach was one of the best weekends of my summer! I was honored to be a bridesmaid, and I loved spending time with my extended family and celebrating my cousin and her new husband.
As a bridesmaid, you don’t usually need to choose what you’re wearing to the actual wedding, but you do need to plan outfits for all the events before the wedding! This post is about what I wore for the events leading up to my cousin’s wedding this past summer in Virginia Beach and tips for what to wear to each event.
I was having a normal Tuesday at work when H texted me unexpectedly to ask if I wanted to go see Hamilton that night. I was surprised, since neither of us had expressed interest in seeing it before, and even more confused when he asked if I wanted to have dinner with our state delegate before the show.
After a long day of travel, our flight got in late at night. Barbados at midnight was tropical and lovely, from the palm trees we could see waving in the warm breeze outside the airport to the rum punch we sipped on as we checked into our hotel, the Colony Club. We made our way along the paths that wound between low two-story buildings and lagoon-like pools to our room and collapsed into bed.
