Are you freaking out because you’re heading to a wedding very soon (even though you knew six months in advance) and have nothing to wear? Have no fear, we’ve got you covered on all summer wedding style.
Summer is not only a time for vacations, barbecues and beach trips. It is also one of the most popular wedding seasons. Within the first few months of summer some of our favorite celebrities have decided to tie the knot such as Kimye, Reggie Bush, Olivia Palermo and more. Not only does the bride have to worry about the perfect dress, but so do the guests.
Depending on the location of the nuptials and the theme, there are different attire requirements. Ladies, we’ve provided details on different options for the three most popular summer weddings – destination/beach, cocktail and black tie. Check out the different options below.
Beautiful weather calls for outdoor ceremonies under a gorgeous sunset. For daytime garden weddings it’s typically hot outside so we suggest wearing light and flowy dresses in silk or lace. Keep the accessories light for a flawless finish. Destination/Beach weddings are always somewhere warm and tropical so now is the time to play with prints and maxi dresses. Since the setting is a bit relaxed, you can wear bright colors such as coral, fuchsia and yellow. If the wedding is on the sand remember to stay away from heels and throw on a pair of embellished sandals.
This is the most common attire for weddings and has the most flexible dress code. For the summer, choose a vibrant-colored dress or something with a flirty print. You can experiment with different necklines and lengths. Accessorize with a statement necklace and bold lip with a pair of metallic strappy sandals.
The most difficult (and expensive) wedding attire to shop for. It’s very formal and floor length gowns are typically a must. Try searching for satin, silk or chiffon gowns.Even though the summer is meant for color you can stay true to the classic LBD or even opt for the trendy jumpsuit. Accessorize with diamonds or teardrop earrings. Stick to simple color hues like purples, reds, or greens.
