What to Wear to a Wedding

Crazy Style Love, BCBG Dress

Dress: BCBG (old). Belt: Club Monaco (similar). Clutch: Balenciaga (similar). Shoes: Jimmy Choo (similar).

 

I’ve teamed up with the super sweet Ani (from Fleurani) and the lovely Rita (from Coast With Me) to showcase what 3 ladies from 3 different countries would wear to a summer wedding.  I recently wore this pretty purple dress to an event, but it would be perfect for a wedding as well.  My tip for standing out amongst the usual sea of black at a wedding is to be bold and go for some colour.  As you can see, Ani and Rita were on the same colour page.  It’s the perfect way to be noticed but to not outshine the bride. 

 

Side note: This dress is actually backless, but sometimes a backless dress just doesn’t feel appropriate.  The black panel on the dress is a silk top I threw on to add a little extra coverage.

    I really liked that you added the black top to the dress! The purple is amazing…and I’m definitely with you ladies on your color choices…a splash of color is perfect for a summer wedding!

      Thanks so much Ashley! Backless is definitely not always an option, so I’m just glad it looks good with a top underneath! 🙂

      Aww, thanks Becky! These shoes are my faves. I wear them ALL of the time! Their one of the few Jimmy Choo’s that I actually paid full price for because I just had to have them. It can’t be seen in the photo, but they are actually a watersnake leather, which makes them even prettier. 🙂

    All 3 ladies look so gorgeous and maybe stealing the attention away from the bride 🙂 Love this color on you and how you added some coverage to the back – it looks like it’s part of the dress.
