Style Me Saturday: Memorial Day Wedding

Reader Rachel recently wrote me with a Style Me Saturday request to help her find a dress/outfit for both her brother's wedding and rehearsal dinner the night before. Here's her email:

"I love your Style Me Saturdays feature and would love to get some help with my styling issue. My brother is getting married over Memorial Day weekend (at the end of May) and I need some help finding a dress/outfit. First of all no dress code has been supplied for the wedding, but the actual wedding will be outside around 5:30pm, with the reception afterwards inside at a hotel. I'm looking for something a little fun/funky and would prefer a short dress, but not too sexy since it's a family wedding.

I would love to wear some nude heels like these:

Other than that I've been pretty uninspired. Also if you could do an outfit for a rehearsal dinner that would be great too!"

First, thank you Rachel - I'm so glad you like the Style Me Saturdays feature - I have a lot of fun doing them!! :) Here are some dresses that I found as possible rehearsal dinner options (all under $150):

*My Pick* - NY & Company Park Avenue Dress - $56.95 (use code 2166 for 30% off - expires 3/21)

Delias Alayna Shirt Dress - $44.50 (try code D15CPN for 15% off). My friend has this dress and the color is gorgeous in person, and the fit is SO cute and super flattering!

Free People Twisted Up Dress - $98

Madewell Anne Floral Dress - $148

Rachel could pair any of those dresses with the nude pumps she mentioned above, or some strappy gold sandals like these ($39.95):

Now onto the wedding day! Since she mentioned wanting something fun, all of these options are bright summery colors (because isn't Memorial Day the official summer kick off weekend??). All are family function appropriate, and would look fabulous with the nude shoes she mentioned wanting to wear.

*My Pick* - Express Belted Sleeveless Dress - $69.50 (use code 4218 for $30 off your $75 purchase or $15 off your $30 purchase, expires 3/21)

Alloy Ruffle Party Dress - $19.99 on sale (use code A15CPN for 15% off)

Gianni Bini Luda Dress - $148

Gianni Bini Amelia Dress - $138

Yumi Kim Elena Dress - $78 (also featured in the birthday post earlier today!)

Which of these dresses would you pick for each event?
