What to Wear to a summer Wedding

Wedding season is in full force and our calendars are filled to the brim with bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, and weddings. While it’s fun to celebrate the love of others it can also be a bit stressful at times. The question always burning in my mind is “what to wear?” What to wear to a wedding can be super tricky and leave a fun day feeling more stressful than it should. With so many events it’s also a little hard to continuously buy an outfit to wear. I’ve recently been renting dresses from Rent the Runway in order to save a little money, free up space in my closet & be able to wear a fun dress and not spend a fortune on it!

This past weekend we had a wedding in Charlotte of a college friend of ours. I was seriously stressing over what to wear. After perusing my favorite online retailers and not having anything catch my eye, I immediately looked on Rent the Runway and found this dress. It was love at first sight! I no longer had to worry about what to wear to a wedding! It came on Thursday, just in time for us to leave on Friday for the wedding weekend. I got so many compliments over the weekend about this dress. It fit like a glove and was comfortable enough for me to dance the night away!rent the runway dress 1

  4. Such a cute look Emily. I love the dark blue sandals and the shape of the neck on the dress. I have a similar crop top that I’ve worn to summer weddings several times.
