It’s not a rule that you have to wear florals and/or ruffles to a garden wedding. But why fight the urge when it feels so right?

The dress code is black tie. The champagne is Moët. And your gown is a stunner.

The Hamptons Bash

When the invitation says something nonsensical like “beach formal,” throw on a caftan-esque mini and some sand-friendly block heels and call it a day.

The Rustic Barn Upstate

What goes with fireflies, mason jars and a bonfire? A carefree eyelet frock—that looks just as good with bare feet as it does with heels.

Dainty and demure? Please. This calls for a killer jumpsuit (that makes your legs look miles long) and a pair of statement earrings.
