Reader Request - Black Tie Wedding

A C & C reader recently asked for suggestions for a black tie wedding in Washington, D.C. at the Willard Hotel - ooh la la! I wish I were going, there's nothing more fun than getting all dressed up. The wedding is for one her best friends from growing up, and her friend LOVES glitter! The cake toppers are even crystal! She's marrying a good southern boy, so this fete promises to be a good one and this reader needs to look dynamite.

Rent the Runway to the rescue yet again! Because the reader is petite, 5'1, I made sure to read the reviews of the dresses and look at any photos of previous renters before making my suggestions--one of my favorite features of the site. Most of the long gowns come in two lengths, which is a must to meet the needs of all heights. Here are few dresses for her consideration. 

Badgley Mischka Glitz Gown
Carmen Marc Valero Major Moment Gown
Carmen Marc Valero Lifetime Love Gown
Tibi Angelic Gown
Badgley Mischka Gold Glitterati Gown
Nicole Miller Such a Sweetheart Gown
Which dress is your favorite?
