In just a few weeks, one of my dearest friends will be getting married in Boca Raton. The wedding – which has called for formal wear – will take place outdoors at an old Palm Beach style mansion in the early evening. Seeing as the weather in South Florida can be quite warm, I wanted to find a dress that would be comfortable outdoors and yet still formal enough. Oh, and I had a $200 budget.
This first dress from TFNC London sells for $119. I like the fact that it is short and looks to be made of a light fabric – two good things to fight the heat. I also think the beading makes it look a bit nicer.
Macy’s sells this Tahari by ASL dress for $148. Just like the other dress, the fabric seems very airy. But, do you think it’s too light?
This Maggy London dress is one of only two full length dresses I am considering. I appreciate the fact that it is not satin or skin tight – two things that would get on my nerves! And, the cinched waist might make a few pounds disappear…
This London Times dress hits just below the knees, which I think makes it a bit more formal. The full lace overlay also gives it a special touch.
Pockets! Who doesn’t love pockets! I’m hesitant to purchase this dress because the princess cut may be too severe. But, on the other hand, I really like it!
This Bloomingdale’s Boutique dress has a similar silhouette to the other full length gown and beading like the first dress. This is also the most economical dress…
Which dress would you choose? Help!
