Evening Dresses for Weddings

Some weddings are backyard or park affairs where everyone brings a dish to share and the sheet cake is store-bought, but others are black tie or black tie optional. What's the right thing to wear? Evening dresses for weddings can be either long or short. Typically, black tie or black tie optional mean long evening gowns are welcome. However, cocktail lengths will not be out of place, especially if they have more flair and detailing that clearly differentiate them from a daytime dress. Look for styles with rhinestones or other types of shimmer and shine as well as more delicate fabrics like lace. Fancy weddings are one of the only times (post-prom) that we get to go all out on our outfits: dress to the nines in evening dresses for weddings from Kohl's!
