Itâ€™s wedding season, yâ€™all. After two years of being on the circuit nonstop from before Memorial Day to after Labor Day weâ€™re pretty excited to have a low key year in terms of friends getting hitched. Our first wedding is in June for my oldest, closest friend and weâ€™re both counting down the days.
Iâ€™ve loved getting dressed up since I was little â€“ something about me that will probably never change. If thereâ€™s an excuse to wear a long dress and get a blowout Iâ€™ll probably take it. Even if the wedding isnâ€™t formal I love opting for something either midi or long.
I actually tend to gravitate towards nicer dresses for the rehearsal and then something less expensive for the actual wedding. A few dresses that I danced too hard in later Iâ€™ve discovered that the sweet spot is really something under $150 or ideally less. The replay value on most of the dresses Iâ€™ve worn to summer wedding, especially, is tough. One of mine (RIP) was left in Cabo with a hole in it from getting stepped on by a stiletto from the dance floor and another was tossed after realizing it had about 7 wine stains in it from people who brought their glasses onto the dance floor. Anyways, you get the point. Theyâ€™re not for keeps so donâ€™t get too attached.
This particular dress caught my eye because of the silhouette and price point. I really wasnâ€™t sure what to expect because I hadnâ€™t tried this brand before, but it was perfect for someone who is on the shorter side. It fit like a glove and required absolutely zero tailoring â€“ a true dream come true. This similar version is beautiful as well!Â
Iâ€™ll be wearing this one to a rehearsal, but for those of you daring enough let loose on the dance floor and I hope you are able to come out more successful than Iâ€™ve been.Â
