A Wedding Guest Dress (with a Baby!)

Hi, friends! It’s been a while since I’ve joined the Friday’s Saturday’s Fancies fun and this week’s “holiday party” theme couldn’t come sooner. My cousin is getting married this month, so I’ve been brainstorming what to wear.

Most of my dresses are summery or not quite baby/nursing friendly. Thank goodness for Rent the Runway! I have the above dress scheduled for delivery that meets all of my needs:

  • Looks good on a still slightly funky postpartum body: A wrap dress (by the queen of wrap dresses!) is pretty forgiving and they’re sending my dress in two sizes.
  • Made of soft material: Sequins need not apply since they’ll scratch Monica.
  • Easy access to the boobies: A V-neck or crisscrossed neckline is preferable.
  • I can wear a regular (nursing) bra.

Last time I rented a dress, I was trying to hide a mini baby bump. Now that Monica is here, renting a dress is a fabulous idea because I don’t have to worry about being spit up on! RTR includes a small insurance policy with each rental and dry cleaning is also included.

And since the wedding is out of town, I’m having the dress delivered directly to Ohio. Having one less thing to worry about packing is another perk of renting. And then I just pop the dress back in the mail after the wedding.

If you’re looking to sparkle this holiday season for a fraction of the price, I highly recommend Rent the Runway. And no, this isn’t a sponsored post, I just really like RTR. And if you sign up through my Rent the Runway referral link, we’ll both get $20 off our next orders.

Have a fabulous weekend!

    I love RTR. I used it a few times this summer for weddings. I’ll have to keep them in mind for this spring when I’ll need nursing friendly dresses for weddings too!
