My brother is getting married this June, which still seems so unreal. It is less than two months away! I am happy to be in the wedding party because that is one less dress I have to worry about finding. The dress I am wearing is this one. All the bridesmaids are wearing different dresses for the wedding. My only concern about this dress are the tan lines! It has an open back, which is so pretty, but I naturally get random tan lines from biking, walking dogs, and being outside. I might have to get a spray tan for this wedding!
I still need to find a dress for the rehearsal dinner. I keep picking dresses and then changing my mind. I am on the fence about renting a dress from Rent the Runway too. I have a hard time finding dresses that are long enough. There are so many cute dresses that I find that are just too short. I get annoyed pulling down my dress constantly or worrying if anything is showing. There was a point where I would try to wear these short dresses anyway (didn’t go well, but what else is college for) that I have since given to my sister.
Here are some dresses I am deciding between! These dresses could also work well if you are attending a wedding too.
Graduation for me is extra special. I was able to skip a year of college when getting accepted into graduate school, but this was really bittersweet. I didn’t get to have a senior year of college to relax and spend time with my friends. I also didn’t actually graduate from college. I had the credits I needed to move on and off I went. It has taken me seven years, three years of undergraduate and four years of graduate school, to finally graduate from college. The running joke in my house is that I am the college drop out. Needless to say, I am beyond excited to finally graduate!!
These are photos from my high school graduation seven years ago!
For me, finding the perfect dress is a must! When I graduated from high school, everyone wore white dresses under our white gowns. These gowns were paper thin and you could see right through them. Now, I am graduating in a black gown with a hood, so no one will actually see what I am wearing unless it is before or after, but this also allows us to wear whatever we want. I am really torn between wearing a white dress and a colorful dress. Lilly Pulitzer has the best white dresses, and who doesn’t need a new white dress? But, a great dress that I can wear all summer in a pretty print is the flip side!
For my graduation dress, I want something that is fun and comfortable. Straps are important to me because I cannot fidget with my dress when it is under a gown. I get too warm way too easily, so I want a dress that is light and airy that won’t make me sweat under the lights (our graduation is in an auditorium and not outside). Dresses have to be reusable for me! I am still a college student and my dress cannot break the bank. With less than one month until graduation, I have to make a decision and soon!
