Wedding season is upon us, but there’s no need to sweat the small stuff! Whether you’re a guest or a bridesmaid, we want you to shine (but not literally) with a perfect complexion and an amazing dress. Let Benefit Cosmetics and Rent the Runway help you stay flawless and fresh throughout the day.


We love the Snap Out of It dress by Rachel Roy; it’s smooth, slimming and has a perfect amount of stretch. Plus, it’s the color of a sunset – you’ll look radiant at any outside affair. For an ultra sleek look, pair with the Spanx Nude Simplicity Girl short that has just the right amount of compression and comfy material to keep you slim and sweat-free.

If you want to play up your feminine side a little more, we love this yellow floral dress by Trina Turk. The skirt flows beautifully, and the light material will keep you cool and comfortable when you’re dancing the night away. To ensure the perfect stress-free night, make sure to pick up some Braza Talk to the Heel grip pads, they’re perfect for when things might get a little slippery on the dance floor.

If you’re heading to a destination wedding, we recommend going with a bright, flowy dress like the Issa Oahu Flower Maxi. The printed silk is super light and comfortable, and the ruched waist detailing hides any problem area. You’ll want to wear a great strapless bra with this dress, and we recommend the Bra-cha-cha from Spanx. It gives great support and you won’t have to worry about it not staying up all night.
