An open bar, free food, a wicked dance party, pretty dresses and a room full of love–it’s the most wonderful time of the year! Wedding season! I love going to weddings with all the love and happiness that surrounds the event, and to have an excuse to get dressed up and spend the evening with friends and family. Weddings can be a little tough to dress for, black-tie does not always mean long dresses and formal casual is an understatement. When it comes to being a guest and not knowing what to wear always go for the classics. You can never go wrong with wearing lace, and since it is summer, go for a brighter color! If you are like me and have the mentality of “I have to buy a dress for every occasion”, slow down… no you don’t (repeat to myself, no you don’t). Invest in a few classic pieces and rotate them among weddings, this way you save money for travel, bachelorette parties, and new shoes!

So toast your champagne glasses to the happy couple and be the first to cut a rug on the dance floor while looking dazzling in one of these dresses!
