8 Dresses to Get You Through Wedding Season in NYC

Ah, summer weekends: filled with the promise of beach days, lazy nights…oh, and a few million weddings from now through September. But hey, we’ll take any excuse to buy a new dress (or three). Here’s how to be the best-dressed guest—at every kind of NYC wedding.

The Waterfront Venue in Long Island City

Nothing complements skyline views like a classic LBD (and an open bar).

The Low-Key Downtown Affair

After nailing your witness duties at City Hall, you’re headed to the West Village for a celebratory lunch. Keep it simple with an effortless wrap dress.

The Posh Manhattan Blowout

The dress code is black tie. The Champagne is Moët. And your gown is a stunner.

The Rustic Barn Upstate

What goes with fireflies, mason jars and a bonfire? A carefree floral maxi—that looks just as good with bare feet as it does with heels.

The Converted Brooklyn Warehouse

Dainty and demure? Please. This calls for a killer jumpsuit (that makes your legs miles long) and a pair of statement earrings.

The Hamptons Bash

When the invitation says something nonsensical like “beach formal,” show up in a breezy off-the-shoulder number and a sun-kissed (faux) tan.

The Dreamy Garden Gathering

It’s not a rule that you have to wear cutout lace to a garden wedding (at gorgeous Wave Hill, perhaps). But something about it feels so, so right.

The Destination Wedding

Your best bet is something made of travel-friendly, wrinkle-resistant material…just kidding. This is your time to wear something totally stunning that’ll shine against whatever exotic backdrop you’re headed to.
