I was so happy that I was able to take a few days off and make it back to the States for the happy occasion.
Here are some of my favorite shots from the weekend!

For the weekend, I used Rent the Runway instead of buying a dress. I rented these three dresses for four days. It was really exciting to try this service out. The rental prices are a mere fraction of what these dresses would normally retail for in a store.
Overall, my first experience was fun, but there were some issues. Each of one the dresses was tight in the chest and shoulders, the pink dress being the most problematic. The blue and white dress came with a split seam in the back and when I reported this the rental cost was credited back to my account. In the end, all worked out fine and I'm excited to rent again soon!
If you're interested in trying Rent the Runway, you can use my referral link and we can both earn a $20 credit. For now, I think rentals are limited to the U.S.
