what to wear to a black tie wedding...

Black-tie-wedding

Next month, Bob and I are celebrating the marriage of our good friends at their intimate black tie wedding in Los Angeles. It's a pretty rare occasion when I get to dress up that fancy, so I've been trying to figure out what to wear. I know I don't want to do the classic black dress, but I'm torn between "pretty and romantic" or "glamorous and offbeat". Getting a new dress is always the priciest part of going to a wedding, so I think the accessories should be pieces you can wear again and again for other occasions as well. What do you guys think? Which one look should I go with?

Pretty and romanticAnthropologie pouch, Kate Spade bangle, Joanna August wrap dress, Nine West gold heels.

Glam and offbeatParis House coin purse, Kate Spade prince charming studs, Aidan Mattox dress, Ted Baker heels.
