The Ultimate Summer Wedding Guest Dress Guide

Tis wedding season and friends and friends of friends are getting married left and right. It always causes me a bit of anxiety when trying to figure out what to wear to a wedding. There are only 2 rules: Never Wear White and Never Wear Black. The former is reserved for the bride only (if she subscribes to that) and the later is reserved for funerals. I don’t care what anyone says, it’s rude to wear either color to a wedding. I don’t care how fabulous or slimming it makes you look. If you really wanna take the guess work out of what to wear, I’d suggest renting a bunch of options from Rent The Runway. I currently use their monthly unlimited plan to order 4 pieces every few weeks. I usually keep the pieces for two weeks and then switch them out for another 4 pieces. They have an amazing array of dresses for wedding guests to chose from. Use Code: MONROES100 on Rent The Runway to receive $50 off your first 2 months of RTR Unlimited ($100 off total)!

    I’ve actually never tried Rent the Runway but I hear great things about it. Considering I’m pregnant, barely 5 feet tall and normally very slender, I’m apprehensive to try it out. But these cute dresses are hard to resist. I just might take the chance.

      Thanks so much for reading. Definitely check it out. I think they have a Petite Section and its worth it for the very little money you pay monthly.
