  • How to be a fashionable and savvy wedding guest

    0 comments / Posted by DearMissJ Help

    I’ve reached the point in my life where I’ve gone to so many weddings that it’s becoming more
    difficult to figure out what to wear each time. I used to spend lots of money on getting
    a new dress for each wedding I went to but realized later that it wasn’t very economical.

    The older you get, the more weddings you go to, and the more important it is to budget for
    your outfit because weddings certainly aren’t cheap to attend. Here are a few tips on how to
    look fabulous as a wedding guest without burning a hole in your wallet!


    Rotate your dresses:  Who says you can only wear a dress once?
    If I’m going to spend money on a nice dress, I sure hope I will have another occasion
    to wear the dress.  Don’t be ashamed of wearing the same dress to multiple weddings.  

    A great way to change up your look is to have a different hairstyle the next time you wear
    the same dress,  carry a different handbag, or pair your dress with different accessories.  

    I love adding elegant or bold statement pieces to a dress because then you bring more
    attention to your new piece of jewelry rather than the dress you’ve already worn.  
    The large grey pearls and delicate clover pendants of 
    Troian necklace adds the perfect elegant accent to any outfit.

    Rent the Runway:  Want to look like a million bucks without having to commit to a
    pricy designer dress?  
    Rent the Runway is where you can rent designer luxury dresses for
    a fraction of the retail cost. Plus, if you’re the type who only likes to wear a dress once, this is a great option.

    Ann Taylor and J.Crew wedding collections: Retail stores like Ann Taylor and J.Crew now carry
    wedding collections which also have affordable dresses that can be worn to any wedding, whether
    you’re a bridesmaid or wedding guest.  I recently attended a wedding wearing a dress I purchased from the
    Ann Taylor wedding collection and received lots of compliments on it.

    People were under the impression I had spent a lot on a designer dress only to learn that it was from Ann Taylor.
    I must say I was proud of myself =)

    Borrow from a friend.  Chances are, your friends also probably have a closet of dresses they’ve worn
    to wedding themselves.  You should figure out which one of your friends are the closest in
    size to you and ask them if you can borrow a dress.  That’s what friends are for right?
