Saturday I went to my boyfriend’s fraternity formal. He is in the fraternity Alpha Gamma Rho and this year was the third formal of his that I have been to. It was definitely bitter sweet with this being his last formal since he is graduating this year. With this being the last hurrah, I decided to go all out with my dress and hair.
My dress is Sherri Hill and my favorite part about it was the all open back. I got my hair done at my usual salon called Studio 7.
Before heading to formal we stopped at one of Michael’s fraternity brother’s house, that was on the way to the hotel and did some trap shooting. It was an interesting way to start off the day to say the least, but it was very entertaining. After that we headed to the hotel where the event was held and we all checked into our rooms. We all got situated in our rooms and did some exploring to figure out who was all there and to get a feel for where everything/everyone was in the hotel. As it started to approach the time for dinner, we all started to get ready and into our dresses. Before we all headed to the meal we of course has to take some pictures!
After we were all done eating we did some dancing, went swimming, hung out, and of course had to go on a late night run to Perkins. I would definitely say my last AGR formal was a huge success! I’m going to miss all the graduating guys and all the great times we have had together throughout my time in college so far! A huge shout out to my boyfriend Michael for being a great formal date throughout the past few years!
Last night I had my last Alpha Delta Pi event of the year, semi-formal. For those of you who aren’t in a sorority or if your sorority doesn’t do a semi-formal, it’s basically like a mini prom. We all bring dates and go on party buses to a location where we dance and eat. For formal we have a full meal, but since it’s semi-formal we just had appetizers. For our formal we wear short dresses that are similar to the dressiness that you would see at a homecoming dance; since this is semi-formal our dresses are a bit simpler.
Our theme for our semi-formal was masquerade so I decided to go with a tight black dress with black and nude lace. I felt that it seemed most fitting for the theme instead of going with a bright spring color. I found my dress online from the boutique called Hope’s. Since it was a masquerade I obviously had to find a mask. It was more challenging than I had initially thought it was going to be to find one, that I not only liked but went with my dress as well. I ended up having luck finding one on Etsy from this shop.
For the event we ended up going a couple of towns over to a ski resort lodge. It was nice that it was closer so that we could spend more time at the place instead of just on the bus. My date for semi-formal was my boyfriend, Michael. We had a lot of fun dancing and just enjoying talking to everyone. It was nice to be able to catch up with everyone before going our separate ways for summer. I had a great time at ADPi semi-formal, but I can’t wait for my boyfriends formal tonight! Keep a lookout for an upcoming post all about it!!
I hope you enjoy your Saturday!
