So, to help our Roo Girls be ready to attend any weddings you're invited to this summer, we've put together some of our favorite dresses that you can wear to a variety of different types of weddings: Black Tie, Formal, Semi Formal, and Beach wedding. Check out our top picks by event type for dresses for guests at weddings below, and shop more looks at RissyRoos.com.

    Black Tie Evening Gown Sherri Hill 32292For a black tie wedding, we're all about one of our brand new Sherri Hill looks, Sherri Hill style 32292. This gatsby inspired fitted jersey evening gown features a stunning beaded neckline and a draped beaded back. This gown is a new addition to the Sherri Hill collection for Fall 2015, but it's a perfect choice for any formal event!

    Formal Cocktail Dress Shail K 3667Shail K. style 3667 is a fierce mini dress that's all about elegance. Shail K.'s signature, stylish beaded pattern adorns the lovely cocktail dress from high choker neckline to hem. Plus, gracefully bare shoulders finish off the divine look of this dress.

    Semi Formal Cocktail Dress Sherri Hill 1978Sherri Hill style 1978 is all about the classic Sherri Hill silhouette, which makes it perfect to bring a little fun to a semi-formal event, while still looking super elegant. The strapless short dress features a sweetheart neckline and a shimmering crystal beaded bodice with a flowy short chiffon skirt. Like Style 32292, this dress is part of the new Sherri Hill Fall 2105 collection, but who wouldn't want to wear this dress immediately?! It can easily be worn in the summer months, making you totally ahead of the trend.

    Beach Bari Jay BC-1500Summer is all about beach weddings! To get that beachy vibe, we love Bari Jay BC-1500. It's a strapless chiffon evening gown with a shirred bodice and a natural waistline, making this a dress that looks good on just about every figure. Maxi dresses like this one are so perfect for summer weddings for when the wind kicks up by the shore. But, if you prefer short, check out Bari Jay BC-1500-S to get this same style in a cocktail dress length. While this is a great dress to wear as a guest to a wedding, this look can also be used as bridesmaid dresses.

  • What to Wear to a Spring Formal

    Spring is here, and that means it's time for lots and lots of college formal events. Whether attending your school's formal or a sorrority or fraternity formal, it's definitely a time to be dressed to the nines! Before you even begin to start shopping, double-check the dress code and determine if the event is a formal or semi-formal. One great way to make sure you're buying the right outfit is to talk to upperclassmen who have attended the events before and ask what they've worn. If it's a semi-formal event, a cocktail dress is a great option. If the invitation says formal or black tie, it may be more appropriate to wear a full-length gown. Either way, it's always fun to dress up!

    Below are four dresses that we love for college formal events: two cocktail dresses for a semi-formal, and two full-length gowns for a formal event.

    Spring Semi-Formal Event

    Shail K. is a great designer to look at for cute, sexy cocktail dresses. The designer has two dresses that we absolutely love for spring formal events: style SK3195 and style SK3823.

    Shail K sk3195

    Shail K. style SK3195 has a hand beaded ombre pattern that's just gorgeous. The black, blue, purple color makes it perfect to wear any time of the year, so you can definitely get multiple uses out of this dress.

    Shail K sk3823

    With pastels being so in this season, Shail K SK3823 couldn't be any more perfect for Spring with the two colors it comes in: Peach (shown above) and Nude. The flowing layers and satin accentuated waist give the look of beauty and power, and the translucent fabric around the neck and sides let enough sexy peek through while keeping the untouchable aura of a goddess!

    Spring Formal Event

    For sexy formal gowns that aren't as glitz and glam as prom dresses can be, there are two designers that we love: Sherri Hill and La Femme. Both have evening gowns that are so perfect for a variety of formal or black tie affairs.

    Sherri Hill 8510

    Sherri Hill style 8510 is our favorite evening gown for Springtime. It's a simple yet elegant strapless sweetheart dress that has intricate beaded detail. We especially love the subtle high-low look on the dress. You'll also have a variety of colors to choose from that are all so perfect for springtime: Strawberry (shown above), Ivory, Pink, Purple, Turquoise, and Yellow!

    La Femme 18713

    La Femme style 18713 is a beautiful figure flattering dress with intricate beading on the bodice and soft gathers at the waist. The beading gives it such an elegant look, while not being over the top. The dress comes in a variety of different colors, such as Peacock (pictured above), Purple, Nude, Light Lime, and Peach. If your event is a black tie affair, this dress in Black is a perfect option.
