Every year, as wedding season encroaches, I stare at my closet in utter dismay and struggle to find the perfect “wedding guest” dress. Who was I kidding when I promised myself I would wear those sorority formal dresses to weddings one day? Why are all of my cocktail dresses black? This weekend marks the first wedding I’m attending this year, so I’ve been gathering my favorite around the web. While I’m at it, I might as well stock up on a couple extra right??
I love love love a beautiful maxi for a summer backyard wedding. I’ve been eyeing these two, the colors are perfection.
My favorite thing about these three dresses is that they can be dressed up or down according to the wedding style. Casual wedding? Add wedges and simple jewelry. Cocktail attire? Perfect to pair with a statement necklace and nude heels.
And of course, the for the formal weddings, Rent the Runway is my go-to source. When it’s such a big event, I typically only want to wear the dress the one night only. RTR makes that so freaking easy, and at an insanely affordable price.
