What To Wear: Black Tie Wedding

Wedding season is here, and if you are lucky enough to still have friends who are getting married, your wedding invites might be rolling in right about now. We know the bride will look incredible, but what will you wear? I pulled together a few options that will sure to have you looking like the best dressed wedding guest this season. But first .. a few tips to get you started!

When dressing for a black tie event, there is often a misconception that floor length gowns are required. However, as your resident fashion expert, I’m here to tell you there are a few other options to consider when getting ready for the big day.

Black Tie Wedding Tips

Here are a few tips that I recommend keeping in mind as you shop:

1. Know your bride. I say that because she will set the tone for the level of fabulousness you need to bring to the event. Of course the goal is NEVER to steal her shine, however, you don’t want to be underdressed.

2. Comfort is key. If you are anything like me, you can be found on the dance floor as soon as the DJ gives the green light. Keep this in mind when considering length and how elaborate your look is.

3. Rent a dress! Unless you attend black tie events on a regular basis, you may not have any great options in your current wardrobe. I’m here to tell you, that is totally normal and okay! Renting a dress from places like Rent the Runway is a great way to look fabulous without breaking the bank, or buying something that you won’t get a lot of wear out of.

Now for the dresses! Tell me, which is your favorite?

Have some fun with your wedding style this season and add COLOR! It doesn’t matter if it’s a spring wedding or a fall wedding, be bold and have fun!

A dress with interesting cut outs is sexy and a great conversation starter. I love these options.

As always, have fun with fashion! Don’t over think it. Enjoy shopping this post and shoot me a note if there’s anything more you’d like to see. Tag me in your wedding looks! XO – Steph
