What to wear to an afternoon wedding?

Q. I’m going to a wedding in LA next month and absolutely stumped at what to wear. It’s going to be at a country club in the mid-afternoon. I was told suits for the guys, but wasn’t given any indication on what to wear as a girl. I’m 5’8, size 12-14, with a smaller waist and more junk in my trunk, and I want to also look as slim as possible! What do I wear??

A. Afternoon weddings are my favorite! They are a great excuse to get dressed up and wear a pretty dress, without having to invest in something black tie. In other words, you’ll get a lot more use out of the dress you choose! Play up your assets with a fitted top that shows off your waist and shoulders and look for a skirted bottom that flares out to conceal your “junk”.

For a spring afternoon wedding, I love a pretty printed dress, so here are a few options to choose from. Add a pair of heels, some fun jewelry and a pretty clutch and you’re all set!
