Wedding season is upon us! Chris and I will be heading down to Houston for our one and only wedding of the season and I couldn’t be more excited. Last year, I went to my first ever wedding as an adult and it was quite the process to figure out what the heck to wear and understand exactly what the different dress codes exactly entail but in the end, I opted for pink tones and stayed on the casual side for both! Luckily, the wedding I wore this floral number to last year and the wedding I’m heading to next week are with totally different groups of people and I think there was only a photo or two of me in this dress – so I’m wearing it again.

SUE ME.

I honestly did want to buy a new dress (any excuse, right?) but honestly just didn’t have the mental capacity to go through the whole dress shopping thing all over again. I’m borderline scared from the ordeal last year.

If you don’t remember – I tried 924729 dresses at the store, purchased five, and ordered this one two day prior to the wedding we were attending. To say I was stressed, overwhelmed, and mentally drained was an understatement. 

The only downside to not purchasing anything new is that there are SO many cute wedding guest dress options out there right now. SO. MANY.

If you’re heading to a wedding this spring and are stuck in the same boat as I was last year, here are a few lessons I learned along the way:

1. Can’t find a dress you like? Stick to the classics. Even in the dead of summer, you can never go wrong with a little black dress and you will get much more wear out of it than a trendy piece.

2. Think spring. I’m not one that typically wears a lot of florals or light, feminine colors, for that matter so I noticed I wasn’t trying them on for the weddings we were going to. Always try to step outside your comfort zone and give a new pattern or color a try! Who knows, you might love it!

3. Have fun with accessories. Dress up a solid color dress with fun earrings, a great shoe, and a statement bag! I am loving this lazer clutch and pearl clutch (on sale!).  They’re both classic pieces that you will have for years to come and are a fun way to add personality to your wedding guest dress.

Don’t feel like trying on 295729572 dresses? Here are a handful of floral and solid-colored options that I have my eye on!

    I think you made the right choice with that dress, and made an even better choice to wear it again! No reason to let a gorgeous dress sit in the closet after only one wear, right?
