It’s that time again!! It’s wedding season! People are making the conscious decision to spend thousands upon thousands of dollars on a wedding and they want you to come make a fool of yourself on the dance floor while in tow with a toaster. Or maybe a crockpot. Or just some hand towels will do, as well. It’s all so strange. I guess I forced my guests to come to Jamaica for our wedding, but I didn’t ask them for a crockpot. I just forced them into sunburns and hangovers, instead. I’m such a good friend.
I LOVE wedding season. I love dancing when everyone else feels too uncomfortable to get on the dance floor. I love tasting their signature cocktail that they come up with. And I REALLY love judging the couple on their dessert choice. If the couple chooses an amazing cake, they will probably make it. Cupcakes? Sure, that will do. Random desserts like truffles and macarons, ok, I can get behind it. But if the couple gets crappy pies from the grocery store, they are doomed. It’s science. I went to a wedding a couple years ago and they had the worst pie and guess what happened to them? They divorced in 3 months. Science.
But the best part about wedding season is having the excuse to dress up. Here in Colorado, the dress code is pretty chill. Which means I wear workout clothes everywhere 98% of the time. Jeans if I’m feeling fancy. But a dress that makes me feel confident and beautiful? No way! Weddings are one of the few places I have a reason to purchase a dress that I normally wouldn’t buy. And when I put this floral fit and flare dress on, I felt like it was made for me! I purchased this dress in a size small and it fit like a glove. It also comes in three different colors including black, pink and nude. I think the illusion of the longer look with the shorter dress underneath is just such a stunning and head turning look and this one is done so elegantly!
But if this dress isn’t your style, I got chu boo. I’m linking some of my favorite dresses this season, both mini and midi length! And I’m giving you multiple price ranges to choose from!
Dresses Under $100
Dresses Over $100
And even though it’s very likely that you may lose both your shoes and your purse, it’s still worth bringing them with you. Nobody appreciates a shoeless guest at the beginning of their wedding. That should come later on, in the darkness of the dance floor. And even if you’re not a huge dress person, you can still make a statement with those feet of yours! Below I’ve linked some of the cutest heels and sandals along with some adorable clutches to match your look!

Fancy up Those Feet
I’m pretty bummed because we were suppose to be going to a wedding in Cabo to celebrate our friends, but instead we will be going to the Caribbean to celebrate my 30th birthday. So I will be exchanging my wedding guest look for a bikini instead! Even though I’m bummed I won’t be watching my friends walk down the beachy aisle, I’ll be stepping into my thirties in one of the most beautiful places on earth. I can’t complain. I guess this dress will just have to wait for another wedding in the future. TIME TO GET MARRIED, FRIENDS!
