Savannah Wedding Style

This is my very last Rent the Runway wedding post! And I think this might just be the best one yet. I hope you’ve enjoyed them so far!

Unleash your inner southern belle with these gorgeous shades of blush. These muted tones won’t have you competing with the bride but you will look perfectly placed I love these dresses because they are muted soft colors but can still stand alone without “needing” something extra. I can’t think of a skin tone these wouldn’t be flattering on, tan or no tan, you are good to go.

Did you know you can also rent jewelry and handbags on Rent the Runway? I would pair these with simple gold pieces for a perfectly polished looks. Can you picture these dresses photographed in front of cobblestone streets and large weeping trees?

What to wear to a wedding in the Hamptons!

We are jumping north to Hamptons for the next installment from Rent the Runway. I absolutely love these dresses for a Hamptons wedding!
The far left is one of my favorite dress cuts, its just so flattering and the dress can stand on its own or would be perfect with statement earrings or a statement necklace.
The long maxi has the best colors for a summer wedding without being too formal or too over the top. I’d pair it with statement purple earrings for the perfect color pop of jewelry. A small gold clutch? Perfect to top this off.
If you are looking for something a little more demure, this Lilly Pulitzer dress is perfect for the occasion. Pair with sparkly bracelet to make this dress more formal and you are perfect to hit the dance floor!

I love seeing these dresses on real people before making a decision! I think thats one of my favorite features of Rent the Runway. Of course, besides the awesome details!

What to wear to a Nantucket Wedding

Continuing with our what to wear wedding series I’m excited to show these dresses from Rent the Runway. These dresses are perfect for a New England summer wedding and especially perfect if you get to spend a little time in Nantucket.

If you haven’t used Rent the Runway before let me tell you a little about this neat company! Rent the Runway brings high fashion to you for a fraction of the price. You can rent for either 4 or 8 days and they send two sizes of your dress (or other item) to you. They have the best customer service, I was literally so pleased when I needed to change something on an upcoming order, they were so fast and changed what I needed with no questions asked! It’s great not only because you can try out dresses that you perhaps couldn’t afford (or rationalize) and it doesn’t clog your closet. I hate wearing formal dresses to multiple events because your pictures all look the same. If you haven’t ordered from them before I suggest you give it a chance, especially if you have lots of weddings to attend this summer!

First up is some inspiration for a Napa Wedding. I love a printed maxi for a breezy Napa night. These bright colors are gorgeous for a summer wedding. They are so easy to accessorize and the prints will help you stand out without look over-the-top and tacky. napa wedding style | as GOLD as it gets blog

Did you know that RTR allows you to submit your photo and a brief review with your body measurements for easy browsing for others? I love that feature and it makes it easy to identify which might suit your body type best (or help you avoid picking something not as flattering).
