Occasion Outfitting - the Summer Wedding

Ahh...love is in the air.  And if you're like me the newness wears off as soon as you realize - "Great, I have to buy a new outfit."  My mom always laughs at this - but let's face it...when your same circle of friends is always getting married and you have 5 weddings in one summer you don't want to wear the same outfit to all of them.  With technology these days even poor Kate Middleton has been ripped to pieces in tabloids for wearing the same DVF skirt several times.  We call that normal, but when you're getting your picture taken apparently it's a no-no.

Well here are three looks I've come up with for the perfect wedding get up.  All at different values.  Hopefully one of them will tickle your fancy or will give you the inspiration to dredge through the dressing rooms and find that weekend get up!
