In a little over 4 weeks, I’ll be attending the wedding of one of my military buddies. He went and got all fancy on us and is marrying the sweetest, most amazing girl who just happens to be a doctor with parents that are well off. So…their wedding will be a black tie affair at Cipriani in New York City on Memorial Day Weekend. Which means I need a Black Tie Event Dress. Did I mention this is going to be fancy?
Now, I do love getting all gussied up to go out with the girls or a date with my husband, but I have NEVER been to a black tie affair, better yet, a black tie wedding in New York freaking City. So, I need help. Below are two the dresses I’ve whittled down from about 20 from Rent The Runway. To save some money, I decided to rent my dress since I’ll never use it again (probably) and I don’t want to take up prime closet real estate by holding on to a fancy dress. The problem here is I can’t decide between them. Here’s some information to help you decide for me:
- The event is in the evening, after 6pm on a Saturday.
- The couple is very laid back and VERY fun, love to dance, but the venue is pretty high class.
- I feel like an oompa loompa in a long dress (i’m 5’4″) but I don’t mind them if I feel good in it.
- My Husband (and my military brothers) are all going to be in Tuxedos. So yeah, I need to look somewhat presentable.
Help me! Let me know in the comments which one you like better as my Black Tie Event Dress: Golden Sparkle or Navy Grecian?
