#1 - Profile: Classy, Modern, Minimalist Couple - Intimate Wedding (plus rooftop-garden reception). I wear:
- This cowl midi dress in oxblood from ASOS Curve would be the perfect thing. Subtly alluring but simple and in a beautiful color for evening. Now to find friends likely to get married in NYC and rent a rooftop venue.
#2 - Traditional Southern Friends Choose Charleston, South Carolina Plantation (outdoor garden reception). I wear:
- This rosebud fit and flare dress by Kate Spade is a total confection. I love the playful prints in Kate Spade's Spring 2016 collection and the understated tulle detail takes this dress down a formal-but-comfortable street. I love it.
#3 - That One Famous Couple Who Got Married In An Historic Hotel And Rented The Ballroom For The Black-Tie Reception And Somehow I Got Invited. I wear:
- This Antonio Berardi off-shoulder pencil dress is just conservative enough, just showy enough to fit in without standing out. It's chic. It's creative. It's structured but unexpected. I like it a whole lot.
#4 - That WASP-y Couple You Know Who Have Grandparents With Homes On Nantucket. The wedding reception will be a huge beach clam-bake after a ceremony at a tiny white chapel. I wear:
- This Elizabeth and James peplum fit and flare sundress keeps the dignity of a wedding toned down with a good dose of beach-y flair. Because of the coolness off the Sound, I would pair it with a periwinkle-colored over-size cardigan such as this.
#5 - That Girl You've Known Since Childhood But Aren't Good Enough Friends With Now To Be A Bridesmaid - classic Baptist church wedding with crowded, mostly-over-sixty-years-old crowd of guests. I wear:
This Spense & Cupio rugby-stripe knit skirt paired with a bright, fun pair of high-heels and a white blouse would be my choice! It's traditional but not boring and would still make me happy in the absence of a wedding-wide dance party. Milkshakes would happen post-wedding in this skirt.
Here's to all the happy couples and to long-lasting marriages all-round!
