What to Wear? Short Dresses for a Black Tie Wedding


In just under a month Nic and I fly off to Florida to celebrate with some of my oldest and dearest friends at a Palm Beach wedding! I couldn't be more excited and it's finally close enough that I am ready to face the age-old question: what to wear?
The wedding is black tie and while I have one long dress from a previous wedding I'd really prefer to wear something short so I can dance and not spend the night worrying about tripping over myself! Choosing a shorter dress is also fun because it means I need to buy a new one. Budget is of utmost concern so my goal is to find a dress that I can wear to many a future black tie wedding and also spend less than $150. This is quite a challenge so I've decided to focus my efforts at Banana Republic where I can conveniently use my employee discount :)

I need to head to the store to try dresses on but here are some of the options I've seen online.

A Pop of Color...


What do you think? Can I go short for a black tie wedding or does it need to be long?
