Dress Me: Wedding Reception

Like to play dress up?
I stink at it. wedding reception party is coming up in 2 weeks. Yikes! I don't know what I'm going to wear yet, so today I ordered a couple of dresses online. Let me know what you think. (Remember ... I live in Minnesota ... and it could very well be snowing ... or raining ... or blustery on October 10. That's why I think I need to wear more of a fall-ish dress)

Option 1
Black (my favorite)!
Short sleeve ... which could be risky if it's super cold outside

Shoes ... Should I do a cute, fun heel?
Option 2
Short-sleeve sweater dress
I like this one, but I hope it's not too "worky"

Option 3
I like this sweater dress too ... and feel like the bust line makes it look more sexy.
Boots with these?
Andi is wearing slacks (or jeans) and a sweater. He wants to wear jeans ... I'm not sure if he should. And because it'll be mid-October, the leaves outside will be gorgeous (!) so I thought fall outfits might be more fitting for our photography. We are planning to take photos prior to the reception near downtown St Paul.

So ladies ... Think one of these dresses will do?


  1. Black is my favorite! Cute boots or heels. Do you have a jacket you could wear over it if needed?

  2. I don't really ... maybe I should get a cute fall peacoat or something in case? That could be cute in photos...

  3. I like the black one. And my thoughts on it being too cold...can you gameface it for the sake of fashion? Or - maybe a pashmina type wrap? I have tons of them in many colors (bought in India) if you want to borrow one.

    One last though - would Andi be willing to wear a suit jacket with the jeans? Casual yet stylish!
