“Uh-oh. It’s wedding season.” – You, looking into your closet.

With invitations stacking up from friends, family, and co-workers, it can be daunting to find the appropriate outfit for each wedding, but not to worry, I’ve got you covered.

From relaxed, beachside nuptials to extravagant black-tie bashes, hit the dance floor in style with some of my favorite finds from around Charlotte.

Going to a yacht club on the beach? To complement the easy-going nature of a beach wedding, try a breezy, brightly colored maxi dress with sea-inspired accessories.

Pro tip: To add definition to your waist, pair an embellished belt to your ensemble.

Dress: Nordstrom, Elizabeth and James ($595); Belt: Capitol, Gucci Palm Loved Print Belt ($800); Clutch: Cult Gaia Ark Natural Clutch in small ($148)

Clutch: Poole Shop, Clare V. Floral Wallet Clutch in yellow ($145); Earrings: Capitol, Rebecca de Ravenel Olympia Hoop Earrings in natural ($385)

Nordstrom, Steve Madden Belma Wedge ($99.95)

Going to a vineyard in the mountains? A wine-colored dress with romantic ruffles or a beautifully tiered floral hi-low dress is perfect for the occasion.

Pro tip: If temperatures are expected to dip, bring along a shawl or elegant scarf.


Luna, Misa Desi Ruffle Midi Dress in purple floral ($176)

Dress: Luna, Misa Idalia Strappy Dress ($370); Shoes: Macy’s, Steve Madden Stecy Two-Piece Sandals ($49.99)

Clutch: Poole Shop, Clare V. Cream Ditsy Floral Foldover Clutch ($235); Shoes: Poole Shop, Rita Sandal in Nature ($249)

Going to a black tie at the country club? Pair an elegant, floor-length dress with sleek heels and statement-making accessories.

Pro tip: If you’re a dancer, you may want to stick with an outfit with sleeves. Trust me, the only thing you want popping (out) is the champagne.

Dress: Poole Shop, Self-Portrait Off the Shoulder Floral Pleated Dress ($575); Earrings: Poole Shop, Jennifer Behr Red Flower Earrings ($575)

Earrings: Poole Shop, Jennifer Behr Red Flower Earrings ($575); Clutch: Capitol, Oscar de la Renta Rogan Bow Box Clutch in black ($469); Shoes: Capitol, Tabitha Simmons Black Tilda 85 Suede Sandals ($159)

Wallet: Capitol, Gucci Leather Wallet on a Chain ($1,600)

Going to an intimate backyard wedding? Depending on the bride’s vibe, this could go either way – casual or formal. My suggestion: Find an outfit you can dress up or down with different shoes and accessories.

Luna, Lavender Brown Silk Dress in Mint ($180)

Nordstrom, Steve Madden Irenee Ankle Strap Sandal ($79.95)

Earrings: Luna, Pave Curved Studs ($22.50); Necklace: Luna, Taylor Gold Flower Necklace ($40); Wallet: Luna, Urban Expressions Daze Wallet in rose gold ($45)

Final pro tip: Everywhere is having a sale! So, go ahead and splurge on those discounted designer digs or take home everything from the clearance bin. And pray there isn’t a cash bar.
