The older I get, the more and more June turns into “wedding month.” Whether I’m going to a wedding, or everyone else seems to be traveling to weddings: from your friends at home, to neighbors, to the random people you meet at the festival or on the elevator of your hotel… It’s like that movie Bridewars finally makes sense to me. We are even part of that crowd this year, heading to Boston this weekend for my college friend, Cate’s wedding. (And I am really excited!)
Since I have been traveling a lot this month, (I think we have been home a grand total of 12 hours in June) I wanted to wear something that was pretty, simple, and will travel! So in my quest to find the perfect wedding-guest dress, I thought I ought to make a little list of some pretty suggestions for my wedding style guide.
I love a shift dress, for any occasion. They may not be the most figure flattering, but they do compliment a lot of body types. Plus, they are easy to dress up or dress down depending on your shoes and accessories. I really love this one from LuLu’s, it’s simply, pretty and has some great sequin detail.
For a daytime into evening wedding, or a garden party… whichever, I love this floral dress from Anthropologie. This fit-n-flare style is really figure flattering! It will always make you look thinner than you feel, especially after eating the wedding cake! Also, if you have ever worn a dress from Anthro, you know that they are well made and always very comfortable.
It seems like every where we are seeing the Midi-length Dress this summer. And I think it’s absolutely perfect for a wedding! Great for dancing, comfortable, will look good in pictures… all the important stuff. 🙂 I love this one from ASOS, it looks comfortable, flowy, and machine washable. Excellent.
