Wedding season starts as soon as you hit your 20’s and it’s a ridiculously good time. Post college, save the dates & invitations start pouring through the mail. Before you know it, you’ve been invited to be a bridesmaid, a maid of honor, a best man, or a wedding guest. This past January, I had the privilege of being one of those wedding guests at a beautiful wedding in San Francisco. A very close friend of mine from college, invited me to fly out and celebrate her very special day with her close friends and family.

It was an amazing black tie wedding, filled with love, laughter and great company. The ceremony was held in a gorgeous Catholic church right in the heart of the city. The ceremony was followed by a wedding reception at a stunning country club overlooking the SF sunset right on the bay. The view of the Golden Gate Bridge was picturesque – the night could not have been more perfect.

This was my first black tie wedding and I wanted to wear something elegant, appropriate but fun too. When I think of black tie attire, my mind automatically goes to long dresses of sorts. Greyish, blacks, blues and reds are dress colors that first come to mind (never beige or white, obv). I have a few friends that are invited to black tie weddings this summer and they’ve expressed a bit of a challenge with finding the perfect dress at a reasonable price. Here are a few options under $200 that I loved. Happy FRI YAY!
