The Real Greek Wedding

So while day one of the my friend's wedding in Greece was amazing, the second day was absolutely EPIC!

So you'll notice that I am eating in all of these pictures. That is traditional bread which is baked during a wedding and then given to all of the single girls as a form of good luck. The bread tasted so delicious that I clearly couldn't wait to eat it (attractive right?) and it was such a cute tradition.

The wedding was amazing throughout and this day filled so much in. We had a pre party at the bride's house which involved a lot of music and dancing but also the sweetest tradition of the dad of the bride putting on the bridal shoes on his daughter. But of course the shoe doesn't fit so the the father has to put money into the shoe until it does.

The bride looked super stunning. While she is one of my oldest friends and always looks good, she was looking particularly radiant. The above was taken right at the end of the night, and after I caught the bouquet. Clearly I was doing all the desperate single stuff.
After the ceremonies in the house, we headed to the church for the service, then over to a hotel for a reception and party. We tried the traditional Greek dances, but ended up tripping over ourselves and I think I accidentally kicked someone in the knee. Whoops. But that didn't stop us from being the last two on the dancefloor.

My Guess heels did me really well and had me dancing well into the wee hours of the morning. I did have to kick them off at like 2am though so I could really get going on the dancefloor again. Cat cleverly had these really cute flip flops on for the dance floor though. Clever girl for getting those.

While my dress was a bold colour, I loved pairing a statement necklace with it. The necklace and dress just went together so well. It's one necklace that I'll definitely be wearing time and time again.
