Always a Wedding Guest : meet Kat :

Hi! I'm Kathrin, or "Kat" and I blog atShop.School.Sleep. I'm a married teacher and mom to 2 fur babies, my cats: Kors and Spade. I love fashion, hence the names Kors after Michael Kors and Spade after Kate Spade. I blog about a mix of different things: fashion (although not necessarily a fashion blogger...I try:) haha), my teaching life, finishing grad school for a Master's in English Literature !! I love Raven Football, but I was raised in sunny Southern Cali. I generally share my random thoughts and general life happenings on my blog and always happy to meet new friends :)

Since it is wedding season, I decided to write about my experiences as a wedding attendee.
Some things I have learned:
  1. A good DJ is a must!! the best weddings were the ones I danced at non-stop.
  2. Wedding fashion is fun...don't necessarily recommend plain white, but white with patterns/prints is fun and the black dress is totally fine...just dress up the black with jewelry and shoes :)
  3. It's always okay to recycle dresses!! If you love the dress wear it as often as you can hahaha
  4. I always cry my eyes out at 3 parts: when the bride walks down the aisle, the first kiss and father-daughter dance....waterworks every time!!
Kat Fun Fact #1: Ever since Matt (my husband) and I started dating 8years ago we have attended at least 1-2 weddings a year, including our own wedding...with the exception last year where our friends took a break....that's 16 weddings in 8 years!!

So i'm taking a trip down memory lane with past weddings....(I think they're in order...and I'm missing a picture or two)

2006:
Summer 2006: Our first wedding for Matt's friend Jen

Summer 2006: 2nd wedding for his friend Ian
Fall 2006: My friend Kelly's wedding

2007: Winter 2007 was Matt's brother's wedding. It was a very low key wedding and I just can't find a picture!!

2008:
Spring 2008: My friend Julie's wedding

As seen above if I like a dress I will wear again and again!!

Blurry sorry!! Fall 2008? Matt's friend Breeze's wedding
This was a Vegas wedding and I forgot my dress because we came right after I finished work/teaching and had like an hour to shop Forever 21 for a dress and accessories..I brought my own heels hahaha
Winter 2008? (or maybe this was in 2007?): my friend Andy's wedding

2009:
Spring/Summer 2009: My friend Candice's wedding

Summer/Fall 2009: My friend Jennie's wedding

Winter? 2009: My friend Tricia's wedding
2010:
Winter 2010: my friend Amy's wedding...I'm making a weird face and Matt skipped out on this wedding because it was our own wedding year!! Also see...again this dress!!

Spring 2010: Matt's friend Benno's wedding...Matt was a groomsman so I went with other friends until Matt could join me
Summer (one month before my wedding) 2010: my friend Michele's wedding...our F-U crew...tecaher insider joke...F for grade and U for citizenship hahahaha

Our wedding!!
2011:
Fall 2011: my friend Nikki's wedding and my 1st time being a bridesmaid!!
2012:
Took a break!!! No weddings for 2012!!

2013:
Spring 2013: My friend Kassie's wedding

May 2013: My friend Ashley's wedding
I have 3 weddings scheduled for 2014 and I think they are all going to be back-to-back in terms of months...so excited for them!!
How about you? Do you go to a lot of weddings or have been to as many weddings or more?

  1. Love weddings, but not nearly enough happening around here. I've been to my last wedding in 2007 when I was pregnant with our oldest and now we're invited for another wedding in July, with both of our girls in the wedding party (flower girls). SO excited!!

  2. Not a lot of weddings for me! In the 11 years that my husband and I have been together, we have only been to three weddings (plus our own). We need more weddings in our lives!
