The Tiny Heart: Bahamas: Destination Wedding

Bahamas: Destination Wedding

Our friends got married on Paradise Island the second day of our Bahamas trip. I wasn't exactly sure what to wear, so I took a few dresses with me (thinking I could always wear the other ones out to dinner). Since it was hot, hot, HOT in the Bahamas, I decided to go with this body con tank dress. (Forgive me, I know this look is very similar to the last wedding I went to!)


Dress-Express (very similar option), Necklace-Eclectic Ornaments

My hubby is so wonderful for holding my clutch (along with everything else!)

Signing the "guest book" plate


The terrace where the wedding took place

The happy bride and groom

The wedding (ceremony and reception) took place on a terrace overlooking the ocean so we were outside the entire time. I was praying my hair (that I hairsprayed to death) would hold up in the humidity. Would you believe my hubby was the ONLY guy there that wasn't wearing a suit? He couldn't imagine wearing one in that heat and figured a more casual look would be fitting. Normally I say it's better to be overdressed, but that definitely didn't apply in this case!

  5. That necklace paired beautifully with that dress, and when it's hot, always opt for the updo!! You're much braver than I would have been! Hello, topknot :)

    1. Thanks Beth! The plate worked really well since it was a tiny wedding (only about 25 people). I guess if you have more guests you'd need a really big plate :)

  32. I somehow identify summer linen suits or how your husband is dressed for destination beach weddings. I am pretty sure the other male guests were in envy seeing your husband not in a suit. Your dress is pretty too!
