April showers bring May flowers.
What do May flowers bring?
(Okay, I know that’s not the right answer from the grade school poem, but in our twenty-something minds, you know it’s true.)
Wedding season is upon us, and in case you didn’t know, our friends are getting engaged. Which means we have to put on a fancy dress (or suit and tie) and a smile as we meet up with people we haven’t seen since high school.
At the ripe old age of 22, I attended my first two weddings, ever. (It’s a long story…) My cousin got married in April, and three months later, my college friend got married. Both were black tie, so I wanted to wear something that was functional and that would last me the entire wedding season.
If you’re one of the lucky ones that have a big celebration coming up, take a look at our five must-haves for any wedding type:
Yes, $400 is a lot for a suit. But, if you’re going to a lot of weddings this summer, it just might be worth the investment. Plus, you can wear the pieces as separates–wear the pants with a dress shirt for a more casual wedding, or pair the suit jacket with khaki pants.
An essential for everything.
You’ll get major style cred with a fun printed tie.
Because there’s always somewhere you’d rather be, so why not have a little fun?
The LBD is the quintessential item for any wedding type–the right accessories make the outfit dressy or casual.
Even in the description, it says it’s a “must have for wedding season”.
A fuller skirt gives you more room for cake.
The perfect complement to an LBD.
Hands-free is the way to go, and a chain-link makes whatever you’re wearing a little more glamorous. Bonus if it doubles as a clutch.
Because, duh, it’s the only classy way to survive wedding season.
Good luck and enjoy!!
