How to: Dress for a Summer Wedding


Since the weather has gotten warmer and the days have gotten longer, you’ve probably seen a lot more white dresses and tuxedos gracing parks, beaches, and churches. Summer is definitely wedding season. Getting an invitation for a friend or family member’s wedding is always exciting, but the excitement shortly turns into a brief panic trying to figure out what to wear. That’s where we come in! During the warmer months, many couples tie the knot outdoor, so we’ve pulled three looks that work perfectly for summer weddings.

Look 1: A floral dress and heels

This dress works for both indoor and outdoor weddings, but it probably wouldn’t be the best choice for a black-tie affair. Fortunately for you (and trendy floral dresses), those aren’t incredibly popular anymore.

Look 2: A maxi dress and flat sandals

While some maxi dresses are probably too casual for a wedding, we think the flattering cut and ruffle on this little beauty help dress it up a bit. Maxis and flat sandals are perfect choices for a beach or grass wedding when heels aren’t really ideal for walking.

Look 3: A flirty dress, structured blazer, and heels

If you’re attending a church ceremony or a wedding outside at night, blazers are perfect for covering up and keeping warm. Pair them with flowy dresses to avoid looking like you just came from the office.

When you’re shopping or deciding on that perfect wedding guest dress, be sure to think about the invitation and the venue. Did they seem fancy or more casual? And always be sure to grab something you can dance in! Let’s face it, there’s nothing worse than turning down a cute guy’s offer to dance because your dress is too tight.
