We’re doing some maintenance on the 30 Dresses portal so I’m posting today’s black tie wedding dress, styling tips and additional favorites here!

Styling Tips

Black tie weddings can be tricky. While the men will elevate their looks to tuxedos, women can often get away with anything from formal cocktail dresses to ballgowns, depending on the crowd and the venue. In most cases, black tie events call for a floor length gown but do your best to gauge the event, finding out what the hostess (typically the mother of the bride) and other guests plan to wear. If you don’t feel like wearing a floor-length gown, go with a formal cocktail dress or a high-low option.

    This dress is so majestic, pure dream! 🙂 You are looking flawless here!


  2. Superb dress and pictures in the Buenos Ayres street in Paris 😉


  3. This dress is incredible and I love all the embroidery on it. You could really pass for a princess here! (But let’s be honest, you’re always a princess 😉 ) I’m getting slightly Dior vibes from the embroidery, slightly mesh material and the bodice of the dress. You were definitely in a prime location for these photos. It’s so magical in Paris, especially right in front of the Eiffel Tower!

    This dress is a more gorgeous version of the Anthropologie dress you showed us last fall. I’ve been meaning to write you to tell you what a successful purchase that dress was for me. I wore it to a Christmas black tie dinner party, a waltz ball, (perfect length for dancing) and a business awards dinner. Every time I have worn it even strangers come up to tell me how much they love it. You truly are my fashion advisor and personal shopper. Thank you!!!
