Wedding Guest Dresses.

I have recently received so, so many shopping requests for wedding guest dresses so I wanted to offer a roundup of up-to-date options since many of the ones I shared in this special occasion roundup are now sold out. I’ve also added a new section to my shop that I will try to keep up-to-date with loads of wedding guest finds as we head into wedding season (so exciting to say those words). I have TWO deferred weddings in early fall that I’m already excited to doll up for…

For shoes: Gosh, I’m a 90s gal when it comes to evening shoes in the sense that I reach for high heels (3.5″ or higher) for special occasions. Blame it on Carrie Bradshaw. Do you know how many times my mother would give me stern looks and tell me to “be careful in those”? Even when I was in my late 20s? One of my biggest concessions in planning my wedding was buying shoes that were only 2.5″ high instead of 4″ as I’d wished. Anyway, my go-to wedding shoes are Alexandre Birman Claritas, but I guess I could make do with the LR knot mules if we’re going to be outside or practical. I also really do love these lower-heeled mules with the ostentatious brooch at the toe — I’d wear them also with jeans and a white tee!

For clutches: Cult Gaia (all the heart eyes), Pam Munson, or these adorable Rafe statements.

These and more — plus some fun jewelry finds and other accessories in this section of my shop from now on.

P.S. If you’re trying to plan what to put on your registry, or are looking to buy a wedding gift, here’s a good start! My favorite gift to give is a Staub Dutch oven. We use it constantly in our home and it’s just a lovely, substantial classic for any home. (Slight preference to Staub vs. Le Creuset because the knob on the top of the Staub is metal and can therefore withstand higher heat than Le Creuset, which uses plastic. You aren’t normally blasting a Staub at high heat in the oven, but still – just a very durable, well-considered, eternally-lasting item of kitchen gear. We’ll probably be able to pass ours along to our children!)

P.P.S. What is “your song”?

P.P.P.S. I remember this moment so powerfully from my wedding day.

  1. 100% agree on the Staub Dutch oven tip! I gave one to my mom for her 60th birthday and she is in love with it. I have a Le Creuset myself, but I love the Staub options!

    That Cult Gaia clutch COULD NOT be more perfect for a June baby! I want it!

    Also, great tip on the Banjanan dresses at Gilt! What great deals!
