The BCBG dress is definitely fancier than I think I want for the rehearsal, but I'm tempted to buy it anyway to wear for our upcoming engagement shoot (more on that later). It's fabulous! But I have a thing about white dresses: I won't wear them except on my wedding day (and even then, it's ivory, not white), and possibly for the rehearsal/engagement shoot/a formal-ish shower?so it's kind of a big expense for a single- (or double?) use dress. Still, I had to share... I love it with the blue shoes. :) They are nearly identical to Carrie Bradshaw's blue Manolos, at a much more attainable price. Buy them now, thank me later.
The lace dress is actually totally my speed (and I like how the model looks a little like me! It's like I can see myself in the dress already! Meant to be!!!), and my budget. It'll be a cool March evening, most likely, and I feel like this dress would be fine with a simple black cardigan that I already own, and HOT with the Jessica Simpson heels I barely avoided buying at the mall just this weekend. And any excuse to buy those shoes is one I am ALL over.
What do you think? Is this the dress, or should I keep looking? What did you wear for your rehearsal dinner?
