Wedding Guest : Destination Spain

We are packing up the car and making the trek from Dijon to Madrid to celebrate a special friend’s wedding to her college sweetheart. She is Spanish, he is American and we all met back at university in Michigan. So, how amazing is it to be able to celebrate their marriage with other old friends in beautiful Spain? I can’t wait! And, there ain’t no wedding like a Spanish wedding…

But, what to wear when you have to pack a dress and suit into a suitcase and drive it a 1,000 and some kilometers to the sweltering heat of central Spain at the end of June?

Here are a few of my ideas inspired by the classic rivalry Madrid and Barcelona…


Madrid: Classic lace. Let’s face it, it will be hot and there is nothing worse than sweat stains on a dress, sleeveless or strapless is a must. A touch of lace is the perfect way to give a little nod to Spanish culture of peinetas and lace. Add a little belt, some amazing heels, wavy beach hair, some chandelier earrings and a statement ring to finish the look.


Barcelona: Modern Color. Again a short, strapless dress is key in the Spanish summer. I’m loving a red, green, or yellow dress this year. Some chunky and colorful heels, a big top bun, a graphic handbag and killer earrings. The brighter the better a la Gaudi.

Which look would you choose? Madrid or Barcelona?
