It’s spring time, aka wedding season! If you are anything like us, you’ve probably spent these last two weeks trying to figure out what Festive / Creative Black Tie or Beach Formal. For some of us, that attire line on a wedding invite is enough to send us into a tail spin. So we've taken some popular wedding settings and situations and pair them with this season's hottest finds. You'll be the talk of the town!

Festive Black Tie.

Well, it’s hard to ever really know what "festive black tie" means, especially in warmer weather (during the holiday season your best bet is sequins and shine). For an indoor / outdoor wedding in the city, say a beautiful garden space or rooftop, play up a nod to spring with this gorgeously embroidered Alice & Olivia gown.
