Wedding season is around the corner, and this year it is coming stronger than ever.
I already got 5 weddings this summer and have had at least 2 phone calls with my mom trying to convince me to go to another one with her.
If you have experienced that, you know it's summertime in the Middle East!
If you're just like me, your knees will start to shiver with the thought of having to find yet another dress for one of the bazillion weddings you're invited to.
I mean.. God forbid you get caught wearing the same dress twice!
I find absolutely nothing wrong with re-wears, but the impending onslaught of selfies and group pics leave me wanting a few different looks.
So, I have gathered some inspiration of dresses for all the different weddings
1. THE 'YOU DON'T KNOW WHY YOU GOT INVITED TO' WEDDING
This is an easy go, you are going to someone's wedding that you're not closed to.
Perhaps it's your second-uncle's-son?
Whip on a nice overall, a chic dress (that does not have to be long), or a dress you wear on a normal occasion (just accessorize it up).
Here are some few options of classic outfits and where to find them when you're on a budget. Most of the dresses are Self Portrait because I have found their dresses to be the most affordable and stylish pieces that are easy to wear to multiple occasions.
Shop The Looks: Self Portrait, Miss Guided, JCrew, Fashion BNKR, ASOS, Shopbop,
2. THE 'PERSON CLOSEST TO MY HEART' WEDDING
This is a tricky one.
Stakes are high and dayum, do Lebanese people know how to throw an over the top exuberant wedding! This is a wedding you have to look your best, and most probably the dress you will invest most of your money in and leave you broke for another few months.
Shop The Looks: Simple Dress, BERTA, MJ Couture, Aden Fashion,Galanni, ASOS Premium , Bambah, Fame And Partners
3. THE WEDDING YOU CAN'T AFFORD ANYMORE
It is now September and your summer vay-cay is coming to an end, no more money in your bank account, what do you do? Well you can always choose to borrow something from your friend, and if she doesn't have good picks, here are some alternative choices:
Designer 24 : The ultimate place to rent a designer dress. It is located in Dubai and Beirut
Garage Luxe Fashion: This Lebanese based pre-loved store will have everything you need
