What to Wear to a Spring Wedding

I am so excited about this weekend because I’ll be attending my first “adult” wedding!

*cues #ITSSCOINGDOWN2019*


I say adult because it has been YEARS since I’ve attended a wedding where I had some sort of relationship with both the bride and groom. Honestly speaking, this may be the first time I’ve ever attended a wedding and felt passionate about the union taking place. While some people attend weddings for the experience and open bar, (I’m guilty) it is even more fulfilling to support a union whose foundation is based on their love of God and one another.

I have also been feeling super inclined lately to try new clothing brands and styles. With the lack of integrity (fast fashion) and racial controversy, I feel like the fashion industry is super confusing and a tad bit exhausting right now. For me personally, I don’t consider myself to be an expert in this area, but I really enjoy being able to use my sense of style as a way of creatively expressing myself and my taste. That said, while I do have a specific taste in clothing (and my overall look in general) I am very conscientious of my financial situation. It wouldn’t be honest of me to refer OR mention high end, luxury brands that I can’t afford (lol) and are well above my tax bracket at the moment.

So, considering the season and a realistic budget, I’ve gotten together some of my favorite looks for a springtime wedding and linked them below!


RENT THE RUNWAY

Ok, so I have known about Rent the Runway for YEARS and apparently, I’ve been sleep. RTR is the perfect online shopping experience. For those events where you want to scale up on your taste without having to sacrifice $$, this is your go-to. To take convenience even further, you don’t have to spend hundreds on a clothing item you’ll only wear once! When your renting window is up, you simply ship the clothes back. The RTR experience is similar to pulling from a showroom, it’s the best of both worlds in my opinion.

I fell in love with this elegant, orange drape dress. Not only would the color pop on your skin, but the one shoulder and peek-a-boo leg are total glam. This would also be perfect for a black tie/formal wedding as well. Paired with the perfect shoe, hair, and accessories — it’s a look!

OH POLLY

While this may be a bit over the edge for some, I think it is a perfect mix of classy and sexy. This cowl neck and form-fitting champagne midi dress is perfect for an evening wedding hosted at an upscale venue.


TOPSHOP

Don’t judge a book by its cover LOL! Slip dresses should be your closet’s secret weapon. You can dress this powder blue baby up with a pair of jeweled sandal heels and statement earrings OR dress it down with sneakers and a cute baseball cap — for the morning after if necessary * wink *. See? Dual threat!

OFF-WHITE

Florals, for spring? Groundbreaking.

Okay so yes, we’ll go ahead and place this in the “Window Shop With Me” category because budget — but this is dress is beyond dreamy. The cut out shoulders, ruffles, and choker remind me of an outdoor venue with clear blue skies.

HOUSE OF CB

Who doesn’t love a good jumpsuit? They’re both simple and stunning at the same time! I’d check with the bride about wearing white to her wedding of course, but if you aren’t sure you can never go wrong with black!


The Minor Detail: bE SURE TO TAKE THE WEATHER, VENUE, AND dress code INTO CONSIDERATION. Hard work and months of planning go into a wedding. DON’T BE THE guest THAT sticks out like a sore thumb BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T TAKE THE DETAILS INTO CONSIDERATION.
