Ben was trying to convince me to let him wear a denim shirt with jeans, and I told him that wasn’t dressy enough. His reply, “But it’s a Canadian tuxedo!” I just had to laugh at his cleverness, but my answer was still no. On the other hand, he was excited to wear have an occasion to wear his tie from Forage Haberdashery.

My dress for the wedding was thrifted. I seriously did a happy dance when I came across this gorgeous vintage piece at the thrift store ($7!). I’ve really been having such good thrifting days of late. There were two more crocheted dresses there, a purple and brick colored one, but I passed on them. I kept thinking about the brick colored one later that day, so I went back to Goodwill a couple days later, but they were both gone. Oh well, the black one was by far my favorite, so I’m thankful that I was the one who snatched that up. I paired it with my favorite pair of heels (I got in London over 10 years ago)! The ankle strap has a tear, but I’ve sewn it together with a little piece of leather. I’ll be so sad if it ever breaks.

The girls picked out their fanciest dresses, and I think they looked absolutely adorable in their little party frocks! I love how their personalities come out in their style.
