dress for your bestie's wedding

June 15, 2017

What to wear to a wedding is a complicated issue on its own. Add in the complication of it being your best friend’s wedding, and choosing the right outfit can feel downright impossible! You’ll probably be giving a big speech during dinner, and will be featured in a ton of wedding photos, so there’s a lot of pressure to look good. But, of course, this is her big day, so you don’t want to steal the show. This can feel like a tightrope walk, but luckily we’ve called in a couple experts to help curate the perfect outfit, no matter the venue!
