With it almost being May (seriously where is this year going?!), it’s officially wedding season! I’ve had several requests for wedding related posts – dresses to wear, rehearsal dinner/shower dresses, honeymoon packing etc. I also have two of my best friends getting married this year and May is Kev and I’s anniversary month! So, as mentioned in this post, I’m doing a wedding series that’ll go for about 6 weeks with a wedding themed post once a week!
To start off, I’m addressing my most asked question – what to wear to a wedding. I went through a TON of my favorite retailers to find the best dresses and jumpsuits that would work for really any special occasion. So if you have a wedding, graduation, shower or special event coming up, I’ve got you covered! Because these are often events where you want to be looking your best, I have some selections that are a bit pricier than normal. These dresses range from $40-150. I figured, if you’re like me, you may spend a bit more on a great quality dress and wear it to multiple events! However, I do have plenty of great selections under $75 if you don’t want to spend that much!
Also, I’m sharing a lot that have petite and regular size options. However, note that in the collage below, numbers 1, 2, 4, 5, & 6 work for regulars & petites. This is based on what I’ve tried on and photos of other petite bloggers wearing these dresses! Most of these also come in multiple color options. I was clearly having a blush/lavender moment when I rounded these up 😋
And, I’m mainly sharing dresses in this post. However, per usual, I’m highlighting a couple favorite dresses below and will include great accessory options to wear that are neutral enough to go with any dress!

ASTR Lace Dress : This dress should just be renamed, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Dress. For real, it fits everyone perfectly. Tall, short, average – it doesn’t matter! My girlfriend Taylor from The Styled Press and I were shopping and both tried on this dress. It fit us both perfectly in terms of length (she’s 5’7″ and I’m 5’2″). HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?! Plus, it comes in so many pretty colors and is perfect for multiple occasions. You could easily wear this dress for a wedding, shower, church or graduation! I would size up one though, it does run a bit small.
Since the lace on this dress is the star of the show, I’d suggest wearing neutral heels like these ones from Target (I have the tall, and they’re super comfy!). They come in a tall, short and flat heel. A clutch like this one or a neutral cross body like this one would work perfectly with it as well!
Soprano Dress : I love this dress for two reasons – it’s simple and it’s under $50 😏. It comes in 5 colors that are perfect for any event! If lace isn’t your thing, this is definitely one to consider! It looks pretty basic but the back has a split detail that makes it unique!
I would suggest letting your accessories make the statement with this dress. Try wearing a pair of studded heels like these Valentino Dupes from Sole Society. Or, you could use a clutch like this one to dress it up.
Here are some other ones that are perfect for any special occasion!
Happy Wednesday everyone!
