What to Wear: Summer Wedding Guest Dresses
As the sun warms things up, it can be tough to figure out how to dress for both the weather and the summer weddings. How to stay dress-code appropriate without getting overheated? Not to worry, we’ve got suggestions aplenty, so all you need to do is soak up the season and enjoy the event.
Since many casual summer weddings are outside—think backyard barbeques and garden parties—keep the heat in mind. Shorter hemlines, strappy backs, and keyhole cutouts help you stay cool. Add comfortable flats or sandals and a couple low-key accessories to complete your look.
What’s the best dress for a semi-formal summer wedding? Something short, chic, and elegant. You can’t go wrong with a little black dress here. A relaxed updo is a no-fuss choice for humid weather—plus, it’s a great way to show off a fabulous pair of statement earrings!
Metallics are a great option for formal summer weddings, including black-tie events. Shimmery fabrics fancy up your look, without the need for bulky embellishments or accessories. Simple heeled sandals and subtle crystal earrings let the dress—and you!—shine.
Easy is the name of the game when it comes to summer destination weddings. Pick a bright, breezy dress in a packable fabric, throw on some sandals and hoops, and you’re done. If you’re headed to a tropical locale, wear your hair in long, beachy waves for an effortless sun-kissed look.
Whether helping the bride get ready, arranging last-minute details, or giving a teary-eyed toast, moms are busy on the big day. A flowy, sleeveless dress lets you go here, there, and everywhere with ease, and is perfect for hot summer temps. Be sure to bring a lightweight wrap for when you want to take a quick break from the dance floor.
