I personally wore a tight, navy cut out dress that was probably said “give me that sangria” and not “sweet young bride”, but I felt 100% myself and the unique neckline slayed in pics. BUT BONUS, if you are not getting married, these are all great options for being a guest too (obviously, since none of them are white!). Enjoy!
