- Wedding: April 2016
So my FI has been invited to a formal work related thing in Minnieapolis. It’s a big deal, it’s like a formal dinner and award, and he’s being recognized for his hard work and all that jazz. I’m super excited for him, however now I’m starting to fret over my dress.
It’s a black tie event, formal dress required (specifically said floor length gowns) I need a floor length, formal gown. I don’t own anything like that, neither do my friends, so I’ve decided to go with Rent The Runway to get a dress for the event. The only problem with unlimited selection is that I’m finding it impossible to pick one! I’ve narrowed it down to 11 dresses, but I’m still so undecided.
So here is the LONGEST poll ever. I’m going to post a picture of each dress. I want your honest feed back- ones you think I should take out of the running, ones you love, ones you hate, ones you think are too casual for a blacktie event (i’ve never been to one!)
Here’s a picture of me (and my FI) just to show. I’ve currently got red hair, and I’m extremely fair skinned. I don’t want to take away from my FI, this is all about him! I just get to wear a pretty dress while celebrating how awesome he is.
Anyways, here are my top picks
Dress One: Mesh Overlay
Dress Two: Red One shoulder
Dress Three: Blue Sequins
Dress Four: Black Cross Top
Dress Five: Blue One Shoulder
Dress Six: Purple Halter
Dress Seven: Green One Shoulder
Dress Eight: Blue and Silver
Dress Nine: Green Twist Back (front picture included)
Dress Ten: Green Straps
Dress Eleven: Green Halter
So bees. Thoughts? Any you hate? Any that stand out? From what I’ve gathered through the other women attending, all of these dresses fit the requirements for the event, and none would make me stand out as too over or under dressed.
