Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close

Isabella isn't sure what she wants to do with her post college life, so she ends up moving to New York to live with her friend Mary who is in law school. As their friends start to get married, settle into full time jobs and have kids the two of them battle with their own ideals and face unsure futures that once seemed crystal clear.

Girls in White Dresses is more like a collection of short stories involving the same characters, than a traditional novel. Readers who have been in more than one wedding in a summer, or who have been asked "when are you going to settle down" will enjoy the lives of these girls as they transition from college life to adulthood.
