    I’m wearing [this dress]( to a wedding this weekend, and it’s looking like the high will be about 72 and the lows of about 58.

    *any hair suggestions? I have straight, blonde, medium-length hair that won’t hold a curl to save my life.
    *Would [this]( pair of booties (mushroom suede) and nude tights be too casual? I’m worried about it being kind of cold/wearing heels through the entire 8-9 hours of this multi-event wedding. I have a pair of black pumps I could wear too but I rarely wear heels so I’m dubious of making it from 12-9.

    Dress code is “dressy but not formal; suits with/without ties for men”.

    I’m a MOH this summer and the bride has chosen [this dress]( which I’ll be wearing in the color “Lake.” I think I want to wear flats or heels that won’t sink into the grass but I’m struggling to find any that I like!

    I got invited to a wedding a month from now (outdoor, golf club) and I have no idea what to wear! The last time I went to a wedding as a guest (fall wedding in a farm, but I dressed too formal) I felt really out of place and I feel really worried now.

    I know maxi dresses are a popular option but I don’t feel like they work on me (petite/5’3). I was thinking a skater or mini dress? I own [this wine red dress from Lulu’s]( but I’ve read that wearing red to a wedding might be a bad idea?

    I’m considering these two and can’t decide which is more appropriate: [Rusty Rose Lace Bodycon]( or [Bluish Pink Floral Dress](

    Would love any advice!

    Where do I buy a bridesmaid dress? It’s my 4th time in a wedding, but the first time I have to pick out my own. Obviously there’s David’s Bridal and some local wedding shops around, but I want something under $150 (less is better!), so what sites should I be looking at online?

    I need something floor-length, lavender, and because I’ll be 28 weeks pregnant by then, empire-waisted. The wedding is in September, but the bride’s mom is already harassing me about it.

    Is it true that you’re only supposed to wear a corsage to prom if you have a date?

    I’ve been invited to a wedding with a cocktail attire dresscode. Is [this dress]( in red ok to wear?

    I’ve been invited to a ball in July and I’m so torn on what to wear. It’s in Australia so it will be winter, but in addition to that, Australia is not a super formal country. Most women will probably wear a cocktail dress, or even just a dress, but I could buy a tailored gown on Etsy for the same price.
    I’ve been looking and looking and haven’t found a cocktail dress that I like.
    The only real parameter is the colour, which is violet. If I do go for a gown, I think I’d have to be low key on hair so I don’t look too over the top.
    So far I’ve been looking at these:
    (In purple of course). What do you guys think? Too much? I though of getting the sequinned gown hemmed so it is mid calf, to make it less formal. I don’t mind attracting attention, but it’s more about dressing to the dress code and not looking like a douche.

    Ok help me out. I’m in the UK, looking for a navy bridesmaids dress for a friend’s wedding. The wedding style is quite big and dramatic l(it’s in a castle!) and the bride has given us inspo like [this](
    Has anyone seen any navy dresses like this? I like the raised-at-the-front hem. Where would you suggest I start looking? I’m 5ft1 so bonus if the store does a petite or custom line!

    [this is my prom dress]( tips on what eyeshadow/lip/nail color would look good? I’ve got dangly silver earrings and a silvery clutch to go with it.

    I have so many weddings to go to this summer… Need some help to accessorize(esp shoes)!!
    [White and blue floral drop waist dress]( and [Blue v neck dress]( and [Red dress](
    In addition to these, I’m trying to find a dress that would be tolerable to wear at outdoor weddings(100+F and humid) 😀 any brand/dress suggestions would be great!
    Also I was wondering if any of the above dresses would be suitable for a wedding with a dress code black tie/formal…. If not I guess I am looking for a solid suggestion for that too.

    Not sure if this is the right thread to ask on, but I got invited to a polo match this weekend and have no idea what to wear! I have a plain black sundress that’s from a sort of thin material I was considering, but I know it was cheaply made. Idk how formal I need to dress at all, and my friends that are attending were raised around this stuff but are men.
