The Tiny Heart: Wedding Guest Attire: Hot Pink

Wedding Guest Attire: Hot Pink

Yesterday we attended our 5th (and last) wedding of the year, phew! I decided instead of buying yet another dress to rent one from Rent the Runway. If you've never heard of them before, they allow you to rent a designer dress on the cheap. I was a little worried about the fit (not being able to try on is a petite girl's nightmare!), but the dress was near perfect. I absolutely LOVED it...so much that I didn't want to take it off. I probably would've worn it while cooking dinner and doing errands but then I remembered I had to return it in one piece (or else I'd have to cough up the $490 it retails for). I truly felt like a princess for the day!

Sign up for Rent the Runway (free to join) using my referral link and get $20 off your first rental!

 

Dress-Z Spoke by Zac Posen via Rent the Runway, Necklace-Stella & Dot {giveaway win}, Bracelet-worn at my wedding, Clutch-Vintage, Shoes-Andres Machado

My favorite part of the wedding was the photo booth. The photos came out pretty hilarious considering we weren't sure when to pose!



Please note this post was not sponsored by Rent the Runway. I just loved the dress so much that I had to share!

  3. Sharon, I agree, that dress fits you perfectly and the color is beautiful on you. 5 weddings sounds like a movie title...that is a lot. Cute photo of you and the hubs at the end. My husband always want to leave weddings early...I tell him to at least wait for the cake. Have a great! Dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  12. i love the idea of rent the runway - if i had a wedding that i wasn't acting as a photographer, i would definitely go for it. as it was this year, i dont think running around in a rented dress through spider webs to get better angles at an outdoor wedding is best! i love the dress on you -the fit is great and definitely an awesome little number for a wedding.

  54. Great idea about renting a dress...I have a wedding this weekend and have no idea what to wear...the dressy dresses I have happen to me the same shade as her BM's dresses. hmmm...I don't feel like buying a dress either since it will soon be cold here!

    In fashion news, that dress is gorgeous! I would be so nervous wearing that expensive of a dress because I just know I would drop something on it. Looks beautiful on you!
