In exactly one month I will be in Miami for a friend’s wedding and I have no idea what to wear. Ok, lies. I have some ideas, but I’d love your input! While I should could go the economical route and wear something I already have, that’s far too boring for me and the likes of Miami, not to mention that half the fun of such an event is having something new to wear!

I’ve narrowed down my disgustingly large wishlist of dresses to six pieces, and it’s from here that I’d like to leave the final selection in your hands. Seriously, if you don’t start barking out some choices I’m going to show up at the wedding in a paper bag that says “My Readers Made Me Wear This.” Just kidding, I’m already weird enough I don’t need to draw that kind of attention…

…moving forward, here are a few key notes to keep in mind: 1) Much against my will, I’m sure I’ll be hitting the dance floor so the ability to throw a high kick and do a back flip are a must. 2) Fingers crossed I’ll be able to apply enough self-tanner in time for the wedding, but in the likely chance that I won’t please remember my Casper resemblance. 3) There is no number three, but things sound better in threes so just go with it.

And now I ask you to pretty, pretty please tell me, which of these dresses should I wear!?

  2. Tibi Pleated Silk Chiffon Dress - $550

    I like #2,4 and 6. But in my opinion you will look great in #2

    #1 or #2 !!! I really like #5 too, but it seems more summery than fancy formal.

    I love #2 and #3, both are really pretty and look comfortable enough to throw down on the dance floor!

    I saw a mint colored dress on net-a-porter last week that would be perfect for this occasion (it’s this one

    Otherwise I think 2 would be perfect! Good luck with your search!

    I like #2, it’s both summery and elegant enough for a wedding. The other ones, while gorgeous, seem too casual. I’m a FL girl, and believe me, the mint color is totally Miami.

    #2. Totally.

    2 or 4 they are both amazing colors and perfect for high kicks (just sayin!)

    Since its miami, and the weather is probably warm, I’d suggest #4 ! It would look great, feel great, and you’ll be able to do all the backflips you want!

    Hope this was helpful :)

    # 2 - Tibi. Looks great on your skin tone. Plus I like the option to cinch it or let it flow. Gorgeous!

    I think #2 would be comfortable and sexy and you have lots of room to accessorize.
    Have fun:)

    2 & 4

    Numba 2 and 4 for sure. You will look more elegant in solids while still looking summery and fun. PS numba 2 is pinterest famous, just sayin, I’ve pinned it…..twice

    Number 4, because you are to white for number 2

    I can’t believe no one is picking #5, the only dress that accentuates a woman’s body and has a fun print that screams Miami. They are all wrong! #5 is the best. love, F

  24. Sophie permalink

    I LOVE #5, but it’s not dressy enough for a wedding, in my opinion at least…so it’s #2

    I like 1, 5, and 6 best, but my favorite is 6 by far! :)

    I say number 2 because you’d probably look good in that gorgeous green color, but it might be too flowy. In which case, I say 4.

    #2 looks lovely!

  28. March 20, 2012

    WOW! You guys are seriously amazing!!! I’d love your input more often!

    Looks like I’ll be wearing #2 - now comes the tracking it down part!

    love you like whoa!

    I would go with the Helmut dress. it will hug your body in all of the right places but yet leaving some “flowy” comfort to it, which is IDEAL for your boogie down dance moves on the dance floor. PLUS the blue on the dress is beyond GORG, which will make it fun looking for shoes and accesorizing (you bag whore you).
