Afternoon Wedding Wear

Wedding season has finally arrived and to start of the summer, one of my best friends got married in a beautiful afternoon ceremony outdoors on a marina. The night was the perfect with the sun setting int the distance to create a beautiful cotton candy colored sky and the bride and groom were stunning! For the wedding I decided to go with a dress from Rent the Runway, which is typically a go to of mine when searching for a dress!

For this occasion I had an original idea in mind of wearing a gorgeous periwinkle blue lace dress and the original dress I had planned on renting was unfortunately snagged up on that date! Luckily I was able to find two equally as gorgeous dresses for me to rent. I had been looking at mostly midi length dresses and this Color Block Twist Sheath by Cynthia Rowley was one that immediately stuck out to me. I loved the color blocking of the salmon and pink and the style was so gorgeous. When I put it on I felt so comfortable in it. It was the perfect length to feel confident and comfortable all day.
I chose to rent two dresses to chose from for the occasion because the Cynthia Rowley dress wasn't available in my backup size. I picked this Periwinkle Felicia Lace Mini by Karina Grimaldi as my backup but was also unsure because of the reviews. One thing I love about Rent the Runway is that you can see how real women wear the dresses and read their reviews. Unfortunately the blue dress was slightly too short for me to feel completely comfortable in so I decided to go with the pink! The periwinkle blue would have been perfect with a pair of sandals on the beach! 
I decided to go with my favorite Stuart Weitzman Nudistsong Sandals that I also have in black because they are so simple and elongate your legs creating a barely there look! You can also find a pair that are extremely similar and less than $100 here! For my clutch, I went with this DVF Twilight Clutch. Since I don't wear much jewelry it was the perfect sparkly accessory!
