What to Wear to a Summer Wedding
Wedding season is in full swing, and one of the most popular months to tie the knot is June. Summer weddings can be hard to dress for, considering the heat, location and time of day. You don’t want to dress too informal, but you also don’t want to sweat through your clothes. Here are a few outfit ideas for different types of Summer weddings.
If the wedding is being held indoors, you will be shielded from the heat, allowing you more clothing options. Churches and chapels are more traditional settings, therefore you will want to dress more classic and timeless. Stick with simple a-line short dress or one-note fit and flare. Dress it up with a statement necklace or a pair of colorful pumps for a pop of color.
Rustic Outdoor Wedding
Barn or farm weddings are quite popular in the South, but can be difficult to dress for. People often think that because it is outdoor, they can wear more casual clothing. However, if the outdoor wedding is in the evening, you will still want to look elegant despite the weather. Choose a dress or jumpsuit with romantic floral or aztec pattern. Keep the material light and go with a cotton or linen blend to help with the heat. Also, make sure to pair your outfit with wedges or block heels, so you don’t sink into the terrain when walking around.
Brides love the idea of getting married on the beach with the natural setting of the water behind them. Sometimes those natural elements can be a bit of a hassle to dress for though. Sand and wind are bound to cause trouble. Consider wearing a maxi dress to prevent flashing the audience, and choose flat shoes to walk on the beach. Fun and colorful geometric or floral patterns will contrast nicely with the setting as well. Just make sure you don’t wear white!
Evening cocktail weddings require the most sophisticated look. You definitely don’t want to be under-dressed at these kinds of functions. Women should wear solid colors, like navy or black with neutral high pumps. Sleek suits and elegant body-con dresses are great if the wedding is in an urban setting. Dress up any outfit with simple silver or gold jewelry to complete the look.
