IMG_0764.jpg

Spring has sprung and wedding season has begun! I know you will be needing something to wear, and finding the perfect dress is tough. When on the search of what to wear to a wedding, there are a lot of factors at play- You can’t wear white, some times you can’t wear black, you want to look good but not too revealing, and you have to take the requested attire into consideration.. Luckily, Lulu’s has a lot of great options that won’t break the bank.

Here are my current FAVS that check all the boxes when looking for a wedding guest dress! All of the dresses below are under $99, but if they are still out of budget, check the Lulu’s banner at the top of the page for discount codes.

Most of these dresses come in other colors, so just click on the style you like to shop!

ENTERTAINMENT || BARONS’ BASEBALL

Let’s Play Ball! Or.. at least watch it!

Birmingham enjoys joining in on America’s favorite pastime during the spring and summer. Our minor league team, known as the Birmingham Barons, built a brand new stadium in 2013 called Regions Park. Going to a game is perfect for a casual date night, hanging out with friends or a family affair. Tickets range in price, but General Admission is only $7. With General Admission, you can stand at tables above the seats or chill out in the grass/bleachers by the outfield. They have several different kitchens each with a variety of food choices, so the eatin’ is good! One of my favorites is the Buffalo Chicken Nachos that come in a souvenir batting helmet.

What makes this stadium unique is its proximity to Children’s Hospital (which is just behind the outfield). Not only can the children and their families watch the games from their room, but every Friday night Regions Park shoots off fireworks! What a great escape it must be for the kiddos to have a front row seat to the firework show! Melts my heart every time.

Be sure to check out their website before you go to see the different theme nights or events that happen at each game!

EVENT || THE MARKET AT PEPPER PLACE

If you are in Birmingham over a weekend, the Market at Pepper Place is a really cool event to attend! Every Saturday morning from 7am to 12pm, it connects small family farmers and local businesses to the people of Birmingham.

Tents and booths are set up all over Pepper Place for you to browse and shop. Live music  and the smell of fresh flowers fill the streets. The vendor’s products range from art, fresh foods, accessories, cooked foods, fresh flowers, ice cream, clothing, etc.

A few of my favorite goodies to pick up include: pimento cheese, salsa, honey, peaches and jewelry. Of course I go for the food and fashion! Click HERE for a full vendor list of each weekend.

Tips:

  • bring a bag for your market goodies
  • bring cash because not everyone has a card reader (although there are ATMs available)
  • wear comfy shoes
  • they have FREE public wifi
  • put an umbrella in your car in case it rains

ENTERTAINMENT || THIS AIN’T NO BULL

The Birmingham Bulls are BACK! I grew up a Bulls fan back in the 90’s and have missed having this winter sport around. This year, they have brought back the beloved hockey team and are playing at the Pelham Civic Center.

Whether you live in B’ham or are visiting, going to a game should be at the top of your do-to list! Most of the games have a different theme, and the charismatic fans really get into it. The sport of hockey is very entertaining with sticks flying through the air and fights breaking out on the ice. Chanting is highly encouraged. It’s a family affair that everyone will enjoy! #GoBulls

Side note: If you get hungry, I would suggest the nachos!
