What to Wear to a Summer Wedding
by Katrina Mitzeliotis
Now that the warmer weather is here, it feels like wedding season is in full swing! I recently had a family wedding and decided I wanted to update my look. I opted for a floral frock and paired it with a bright lip. I don’t often think of prints when I’m picking out my formal wear, but it was such a refreshing change—I definitely recommend it!
When you’re selecting a dress for an upcoming occasion, it’s important to opt for a frock that’s consistent with the setting – but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it! Read on for more tips for finding the perfect dress for a summer wedding.
For a formal affair, embrace the opportunity to work a glam gown. From pretty pastels to embellishments, the possibilities are endless! Since we’re seeing slits on so many stars on the red carpet, I think a formal wedding is the perfect time to try the look out on your own. I love the dress below, especially because the slit is so tasteful.
A beach wedding is definitely much more laid back—and it’s great to embrace the vibe of your surroundings! I think a printed maxi is both practical and chic for the occasion. Leave the stilettos at home and instead wear wedges or flat sandals and your ensemble is complete.
Rustic, romantic weddings set outdoors are definitely popular in the spring and summer months. Whether it’s an ethereal garden setting or in a rustic barn, you definitely don’t want to go overboard with your ensemble. I recently embraced florals in formal wear, and I think it works so well with a rustic scene.
The family wedding I recently attended was traditional—and if you’re attending a conventional affair the possibilities are endless! I think a cocktail dress in a silhouette that flatters your figure is your best bet. It’s also a great opportunity to try out some of the new trends for the season like blush tones.
