Ask the Edit: A Courthouse Wedding

Oct 24, 2019

Hi Belle,

My wedding date is in January, and I need a dress.  We’re having a pop-up wedding at a local restaurant.  Not courthouse, but only 25 people.  I’d like something white (or white-ish).  Doesn’t need to be a gown, but it should look like a wedding gown that’s ready for a party.  Should cost less than $1,000.

Can’t wait to see your suggestions.  Bride-to-Be.

After choosing my own wedding dress, I can tell you how important it is to find a style that works for your body type.  Not knowing yours, I can only guess.  But if you’re looking for a party dress, I’m here to help.

This sparkly, flirty Jenny Yoo Lorimer Dress is the epitome of a party dress.  It’s stylish, looks comfortable, and the flutter sleeve and plunged back are nothing if not fun.  If you’d like something similar in a true party dress, this Retrofete mini dress has a similar feel.

This Lynnette gown from Watters has a corset top and a full, flirty skirt.  It’s the perfect dress for spinning and twirling the night away.  The dress has a lovely femininity to it.

Best wishes on your wedding.  Please enjoy every moment of it.

    I just got married this past weekend and wore the Jenny Yoo Sarita dress. It’s available at BHLDN and ~$300! Alterations were super easy and it was sooo comfortable. Highly recommend!!

Does anyone really know how to dress for a rainy February? It’s not winter. It’s not spring. Sweaters seem heavy. Just a shirt feels like you’ll be cold. It’s a puzzle.

The Range: Trouser Jeans

Yesterday, we chatted about not-see-through tees. Today, I want to talk about jeans. I am so grateful wide leg denim is back in a big way. And if you’re going to the office, you need a trouser style jean to see you through the week (or just casual Friday). Here are some favorites in different […]
