I think it's safe to say wedding season has officially arrived. I have numerous showers and weddings to attend and of course what is the first question to pop into my mind — what dress shall I wear? My mom would be so proud :)
I am now on the lookout for cute dresses to wear to showers and weddings that still fall within the budget. And no, the gorgie dresses below most likely aren't in the budget, but a girl can dream.

Row 2: Lilly Pulitzer, J. Crew, J. Crew
Row 3: J. Crew, BCBG, BCBG
*Where do you like to shop for your wedding season wardrobe?
When I'm attending showers, I typically like to wear a dress with a fun print and bright colors. I'll pair it with more subdued jewelry since the print makes the statement. If it's a wedding I'm going to, I'll often wear solids and pair it with bold accessories. I think it's OK to stand out at showers, but at weddings I don't want to end up matching the flowers/decor or steal the show from the bride who should be the main event. However, if you do choose a solid, you may want to find out what color the bridesmaids are wearing so that you do not match. Also, if the wedding invitation does not specify the attire, depending on the time of day, mid-day ceremonies are often a little less casual than an evening event. Not sure? It never hurts to ask.
Check back tomorrow for Wedding season: Part Two.
