Wedding Dresses and Booties

Summer is here and love is in the air! This means that many of you will probably be attending a wedding or two this summer. Once you get over the excitement that your friend, cousin, or neighbor from across the street is getting married and has invited you to their wedding, panic sets in. The two things that cause the most worry for the guests ( mainly the female attendees) is what gift to buy the affianced couple and what to wear to the ceremony. This summer I have seen a lot of floral prints and tiered dresses. I was walking past Betsey Johnson and saw a cute floral tiered dress ( J Crew has a similar one too) that would be perfect for a wedding that I will be attending in August. Maxi dresses are in style this summer and I would recommend a maxi dress if you are going to a wedding/ reception that will last well into the night as it tends to get cooler on some summer nights. A maxi dress is light enough to be worn in the sun and long so that you can wear it for an outdoor reception at night. Forever 21 has dresses that are perfect for weddings for under $30!. It even has your classic little black dresses with fun spins on them. If you are in NYC, stop by Topshop; I always can find a few pieces that are perfect for any given occasion ( expect to spend way more money than in Forever 21). I like mixing designers and stores so shop around at some of my favorite spots, Forever 21, Topshop, H & M, J Crew, Banana, and Zara. Zara usually has cute shoes to go with your outfit so that’s a cool place to check out. Now that I gave you the advice on what to wear, I’ll tell you what NOT to wear under any circumstances. Traditionally the guests are not supposed to wear white so please follow the tradition. Do NOT wear anything that shows to much boobage or a dress that is described as a “booty pop dress”. And of course, do NOT even consider wearing jeans, sneakers, or T- shirts. Once you have your outfit figured out the easiest solution to finding a gift is picking out something off the registry. If the couple is not registered, I recently heard that cash is the new champagne glasses, so go for it. Have fun and save a dance for me! Peace, love and fashion!
