What to wear to a fall wedding? Rent the Runway!

Sep 19, 2013

I went to pretty much every store on Michigan Avenue yesterday. Usually when one needs a cocktail dress, this is a pretty good place to find one. Except for yesterday. Yesterday’s scene looked like a zombie apocalypse of formal dresses. If I had gone back in time to 2002 and went to the BP section of Nordstrom to shop for homecoming dresses, I would have had better luck finding something to wear to this damn wedding. Yeah, it was like that. I decided I was over that whole situation and instead opted to go with Rent The RunwayAmazing dresses, zero effort. They even ship you two sizes to make sure your dress fits perfectly. What’s not to love? 

Here are some of my favorite selections perfect for any fall or winter wedding. Now…where to find my dancing shoes?
