Sister of the Bride

I’ve gotten oddly emotional over my little [to me] sister getting married this August – helping her pick out little details and seeing her try on bride dresses may be one of the weirdest feelings I have ever felt. Maybe because I still think of her as the little girl with a ponytail and playing with dolls (sorry Diana if you’re reading this) and then to see her as a full fledged grown up!

Anyhow, she’s given me the freedom to wear anything as long as it’s cute, wedding appropriate, and August weather appropriate too. Now, let me tell you this has been near to impossible so far! Everything I find is just not quite right. What I like, she doesn’t : what she likes, never seems to be in my size (hmph!) I’m not opposed to wearing a gently used dress if I can find the right one, but I’m leaning towards finding a brand new dress and will share with you some of the stores and their dresses I have been scoping! Recently, I have had my eye on Shopbop after seeing their “guest of the wedding” curated looks.

Since her theme colors are a colorful fuchsia, rich yellows, and azure, I have been looking for solid primary color dresses that fit in the scheme. But so many other pretty ones catch my eye too!

These are my pink/red choices that I’m actually loving, considering it’s not a color I have too much of in my regular wardrobe!

Alice + olivia Marlene A-Line Dress

Three floor French Exchange Dress

Rachel pally Full Tie Two Tone Dress

Bb dakota Coralie Colorblock Dress

Viva vena! by vena cava Claire Square Neck Dress

Thakoon Peacock Feather Dress

I wouldn’t mind wearing these purple hued ones either!

Alice + olivia Ophelia Lace Dress

Free people Georgia Dress

And then I think, maybe something green or yellow!

Bcbgmaxazria Audra Draped Dress

Talulah La Flamingo Dress

Madison marcus Double V Lace Dress

Tibi Drape Silk Dress

Honestly, I could go on and on, but even these are tipping my budget! And this is just the first store I’m looking into. Personally, that red lace dress is my #1 at the moment, but many other ones also have my heart. Is it too much to ask for a dress that isn’t too short to wear in a church and that I can wear again in the future when I’m not at a wedding?!
