This coming year marks the first wave of my friends from high school and college getting married. I’ve been to several of Will’s friends’ weddings over the past couple years but it will be extra fun to celebrate friends I’ve known for as long as I can remember (including my best guy friend Eddy, for those of you who have been reading Design Darling for that long!).

This also means I have lots of dress shopping to do in the months ahead! We have two fall weddings on the docket and, while it will probably still be pretty warm in Dallas, I’d like to pick up a couple darker hued dresses for the occasions. When it comes to getting dressed for weddings, I like to choose colors I’m comfortable in (since I know I’ll be anything but comfortable wearing heels all night), nothing overly embellished (save the sequins for New Year’s Eve), and bonus points for anything that will twirl on the dance floor.

  1. I’m going to a wedding this weekend and I was JUST asking my boyfriend what would be appropriate to wear. He didn’t have any suggestions but I found this post right after and it’s been a life saver. Thanks!

  2. What kind of shoes work for a fall wedding with a dress like #12? I always think that open toe only works for summer weddings and I’m at a loss for something simple (and easy to wear all night!)

  3. i wish i could open links on your website! they are all blocked on my computer and two look like they could be perfect for my rehearsal dinner! so sad!

    1. Oh no! I use affiliate links so I get paid a small commission when a reader makes a purchase at that site, which is part of how I make a living. Fingers crossed you can open them at home — would love to see which one you choose for your rehearsal dinner!

      1. totally understand affiliate links and support that pursuit – i’ve tried at home and work and never know. sometimes i can do a google image search for other blogs – but with these images, it will only search for the first dress!
