A formal wedding is the perfect excuse to go all out on your outfit. Go for a maxi or ankle length dress and pair it with a block heel so you can feel fancy but stay comfortable. 

2: Casual/Cocktail Wedding

For a cocktail attire wedding, have some fun with your outfit. Wear something that makes you feel like you! We recommend a fun mini dress paired with wedges, or if it's a barn wedding, wear cowgirl boots

3: Outdoor/Garden Party Wedding

If you're going to a garden party, dress like it! Feel soiree-ready in a floaty floral dress like our Evett or Aurora. Add dainty jewelry to complete your look.

4: Beach Wedding
