How To Dress For a Wedding

It's wedding season! Absolutely the best time to update your wardrobe with new dresses. The big question, though, is what to wear with depending on the event type.

In this day and age many weddings have gone the casual, but not too casual, route. There are, however, a few diamonds in the rough that grace the formal theme. When invited to an event with a not-so-familiar dress code it's hard to know what to wear. From shopping online sales to scouring the formal dress section at Macy's, finding the perfect dress (or tux) may seem hopeless with no dress code background. Luckily, The Black Tux, an online suit and tuxedo rental site, broke it down by event type (it's about time somebody did!).

At a recent family wedding I sported the casual look, a light yellow boho floral dress from Rebecca Minkoff with the absolute best pair of heels from A New Day at Target (I swear by them for any occasion). The dress was love at first sight and the idea of being able to wear it again for work or a drink out with the girls was a hands down win. Shopping for a formal wedding, however, was a different beast. Should I get something short or long? Are embellishments too much? I was so worried about type of dress would be the perfect style when I should have just gone with what I loved and would wear again. After hours of searching, I went with the most beautiful rose gold floor length gown that made me feel like Megan Markle.
