Hello SOTGC community,
Spring and summer is big time for weddings. The warm weather allows couples to have their nuptials outdoors. Outdoor weddings can range from a beach wedding, barn wedding, country wedding, etc. Not only is it a lot of planning for the bride and groom, but it can also be stressful for the attendees!
Deciding what to wear to any wedding can sometimes be a daunting task. Some are black tie, some are casual, and some are a mixture of both! You never really know what type of set up to expect. That makes it harder to pick out what to wear.
It’s a well-known rule to not upstage the bride so you don’t want to wear something too flashy, but at the same time it’s a moment for you to play dress up! You may have that one dress tucked away in your closet that you bought but never had the opportunity to wear. Or it may be an opportunity for you to go shopping for a stunning new dress! Either way, it’s an exciting moment for all women. We secretly all like to dress up once in a while.
But when we can’t find something to wear, it can be extremely frustrating. Maybe you found the perfect dress but it’s just too pricey. Maybe you found an ensemble but it just doesn’t fit right and you don’t have the time to get it altered. Maybe you just can’t find the right accessories. And sometimes the most frustrating part is when you just don’t have an idea where to start.
Should you wear a short dress? A long dress? A skirt? Pants? What to do! After some browsing online, I think I’ve found some great pieces that will work for more than one occasion. They are great for various body types and are easy to style. Best part of all, they are all at a great price!
All of these styles can be found at Nordstrom Rack or online at www.nordstromrack.com!
