Dressing for a Wedding


Wedding season is officially upon us!  We have our first wedding of the summer coming up at the end of June and I've already been on the hunt for the perfect dress to wear.  I've found so many great options and wish I could buy them all but alas, it's time to narrow it down to just one.  Below are five of my favorites - all options are totally affordable at under $100 and per my wedding etiquette post, none of these dresses are white ;)



+ Nasty Gal Morning Glory Dress
A beautiful royal blue color and the floral/lace just screams wedding.  This reminds me of something that Kate Middleton would wear which pretty much means I need it.

Forever 21 Textured Lace Sheath Dress
First of all, I can't believe this is a dress from Forever 21!  So cute.  The cap sleeves and square neckline are adorable and I'm always a sucker for anything hot pink.

+ Nasty Gal Flame Game Dress
I think maxi dresses are becoming more and more acceptable for weddings.  I love this Nasty Gal one.. the plunging back is gorgeous.  I'd pair it with a belt, statement earrings and an updo to finish off the look!  After all, orange is the new black, right?

Nasty Gal Electric Lazy Land Dress
This one might be my favorite... I'm obsessed with the print on this dress!  It has a tropical vibe that would be perfect for a more casual summer wedding - or say an anniversary trip to Charleston ;)

+ Express Color Block Tee Dress
How comfortable does this dress look?!  I'm a huge fan of the color blocking trend and I like that it's body hugging to really show off your curves.  All of the buyer comments are positive which always makes me feel better about making a purchase online!

Which dress is your favorite?  I kind of want them all...

  3. So cute! I think you can find the cutest, most unique dresses at F21 and H&M. You don't need to break the bank for a wedding! (or wear white!!)

  4. Don't forget about Renttherunway.com! I use it ALL the time for Kate Spade, Lilly Pulitzer, Trina Turk and more! Not to mention they are always having deals (rent one get one half off, etc) so if it is a destination wedding you can get 2-3 dresses. When I was getting married and going to lots of showers, etc it was a life saver. You can even rent jewelry and accessories too! You get to order 2 dress sizes as well, so it helps to cut down on the uncertainty. Here is a link to sign up and check it out http://www.renttherunway.com/referral/jennyleonard210 Let me know if you end up renting anything! Cheers! Jenn www.pinterestdreams.blogspot.com

  7. I love that orange maxi! That type of neckline is quickly becoming my favorite- is it considered a halter? They always look so flattering and orange is such a fun summer color!

  9. Love all of these! The orange maxi is my favorite. As soon as I know of a wedding we're going to be attending I instantly start looking for dresses to wear. Problem is I change my mind so many times before the wedding I have a hard time buying anything!

  19. Ooh it's between the royal blue lace and the pink/coral dress for sure. And on another note, you need to have a regular post called Common Sense with Katie or something because I swear the things you post about (especially relating to weddings, lately) could help out more than a few sisters I bet ha.
