Follow the Bride: What Should I Wear to a Wedding Tonight?

Happy Friday everyone! Confused to see me here today? Well, I can explain. I hijacked Creative Odds n’ Ends because I have a major dilemma: I am attending a wedding in a few hours and I have no idea what to wear. The wedding starts at 6:00 and is being held at the beautiful Waterview in Monroe, CT. This is going to be a fancy affair and I’ve got to be dressed right for the occasion.

I’m torn between three dresses. Have a look and let me know which I should wear tonight:

Dress # 1: Walter
I’m really excited about this one. When I spotted this print I knew it had to be mine. I like the sweetheart neckline. Also, it has pockets. That’s all I have to say about that.


Dress #2: Banana Republic
I got this dress last summer but only wore it once to a rehearsal dinner. It’s such a pretty print that I think it needs to make a second showing soon.


Dress #3: J. Crew

I have a confession to make. I bought this dress last week on my lunch break. I went in looking for a hair accessory that would match dress #1 when I noticed this lovely piece was on sale. My defense is that I had my eye on these rugby stripes for a while. When I saw the price had dropped I knew I had to make my move. I have no guilt about my lunch time spending spree—this dress is so comfortable and has pockets. Who doesn’t love a dress with pockets?


So, which dress should I wear tonight? And how should I accessorize? Is anyone else attending a wedding this weekend? What are you wearing? Please share with me. I’ll be back on Tuesday with some shots from the wedding.

If it's going to be a fancy affair, I say dress number too looks a little fancier. All are pretty though!

Spell check correction: dress number TWO! (not "too") :)

I would go with the third. The contrast suits you ... the others are most washed out!! And I love the stripes too!

Dress #1 is fun and with the right accessories would look great at a fancy wedding.

I like dress #3

After viewing the Waterview (sweet venue), I would have to go with No. 2 or No. 3. I adore the Charlotte-esq quality of No. 2 but the party girl in me wants to shake it on the dance floor in No. 3. In times like these I follow the advice of my older sister, "If you don't feel comfortable sitting, standing or dancing don't wear it to the wedding."

Dress numero uno! I love the last dress, too, but I don't think it's as fancy, especially after seeing it in real life.

It's a hot summer night, go with the fun and fab print. Nude shoes, or strappy sandals with bling, and I'd stick with silver jewelry. Make sure to stow away some snacks in those pockets, I hear ceremonies in Connecticut run long. Or tissues...which ever you'd get more use out of!

I'm totally with E - dress no 3. Not that the others aren't lovely, but 3 has the comfort factor with the bonus of being a bit more formal and still fun, and looks most appropriate for the venue. Plus it looks amazing on you! I'd accessorise with one big sparkly (vintage) hair piece, or with a chunky necklace that's not much longer than choker length. Gorgeous!

Thanks for all of your opinions. It seems like Dress # 1 and Dress #3 are the front runners. I love them both! Good thing I have another 2 weddings in July!
