What to Wear: Wedding Edition

It’s officially wedding season. Which poses the age old question, “what do I wear?” AvA is here to help.

Here are our suggestions on what to wear to your upcoming weddings.


The Flora Silk Dress in Lavender Mock Coffee is a one shoulder gown that hits right above the ankle. Its flattering fit, and floral accents makes it a stunning option for bridesmaids. Next to a bouquet full of purples, greens, and blues, it will be quite the memorable look. Want something all your own? Work with AvA on custom gowns to add a touch of individuality to the special day.

Mother of the Bride

Whether they opted for the country club wedding or the white tent venue, the Camille Silk Dress in Angels Trumpet is the perfect Mother of the Bride select. Its attached cape means standing out from the crowd while its soft hues of pink means still letting the bride shine on her big day. It’s specially designed fabric smooths over your curves for an ultra flattering look that’s still comfortable and breezy. Not to mention, the Angels Trumpet print is as romantic as they come.

Black Tie

So they went with black tie and you have nothing to wear. Fear not, AvA was made for such a time as this. The Sienna Silk Organza Duster in Zampa Bianca is a no brainer. Wear it layered with the Caterina Stretch Knit Dress in Black for sheer sophistication, or pair over our Caterina Tank and Gabriele Pant in Black for fun on the dancefloor. The lightweight feel of the organza means staying breezy all day, from the ceremony to tearing up the dance floor. All of our fabrics are hand stitched here in New York providing top notch quality. Go ahead, indulge yourself.

Cocktail Attire

The Minerva Silk Dress in Blooming Yucca is the definition of cocktail attire. It’s knee length, classic but still bold, and offers a punch of color without overshadowing the bride. Its bright blue makes everyone’s skin tone positively glowing while the accents of green and cream make for easy color matching when accessorizing. Plus this look can be dressed up and down for future events. Because we’re in the business of forever wardrobes, not one season and done trends.

Beach Wedding

The beach wedding can feel daunting. Will my shoes sink into the sand? Will my dress make me overheat? AvA says go for the silk to stay fresh, and breezy the whole ceremony. The Alma Silk Kaftan in Runaway Beach is a beautiful option. Its double georgette silk glides over the skin for an effortless look while the pale pink and orange accents of the print elevates the kaftan even further. Our silks are the highest quality possible so be prepared for a soft and buttery treat.

Rehearsal Dinner

Whether you’re the bride looking to step out from the all white attire weekend or you’re a guest attending the rehearsal dinner, the Sophie Sheer Mesh Dress in White Mock Coffee is a must. It’s sophisticated look, fitted design, and flattering coloring makes it compliment everyone and anyone. Layer it over our Caterina Short Dress in White Mock Coffee for a splash of fun, or just wear your sleak Caterina Short Dress. Want a different print? Luckily for you the Sophie comes in eight different prints. When the dress is this flattering, you offer it in everything.

We’re taking the stress out of dressing for weddings so all you have to worry about is enjoying the moment. All of our AvA pieces are meant to be worn in several different ways meaning after the wedding is done and the cake is all eaten, you can wear that same dress again and again and again. Now that’s a wise investment. We can’t wait to see how you style it. Here’s to a summer of radiant beauty.
