Love is in the air. Summer is definitely a big wedding season, and chances are you have a few marked on your calendar. Whether a destination wedding or a backyard tent; summer is the time for outdoor weddings. Luckily for us, the rules on the kinds of dresses to wear to a wedding work for every season!
Weddings can be some of the trickiest events to dress for. Suburban myths surrounding what we can and can’t wear can often confuse as well as frustrate you. Well, we’re here to give you the rundown on how to pick your dream dress for their dream day!
First rule of thumb no matter the season, never wear all white or all black. You may even want to try and stay away from the color of the weddings themed color(s) unless you know your choice is different enough of a shade or unless the Bride specifically requests you wear the same color.
Comfort is Key
Weddings are all about having fun, and if you know you’re about to break down some serious moves on the dance floor then comfort is key. You’ll want to find a dress that’s very flowy to give you some room for movement, but make sure there’s some kind of structure around the waist or chest to give you some shape. You don’t want to look like a potato sack!
Amongst a sea of wedding guests, sometimes you’d like to pop and stand out (not so much that you steal the spotlight, simmer down!). Floral dresses are a perfect way to do so. There’s something about florals and prints on dresses that scream wedding guests. Whether a beautiful floral or some form of polka dots; this flirty, feminine option is a great way to shine at a wedding.
Lace or Crochet
There’s no better time to whip out your crochet best than a wedding. Weddings really are the opportune moment to rock your lace and crochet, both of which do give off very bridal vibes. While lace can give an air of elegance to a dress, you can also opt for crochet if you’re going for a more casual or beach wedding!
If you’re looking to stay on trend and show off your summer tan, then it is all about the cutouts! Cold shoulders are in and dresses for weddings can feature them in a number of creative ways. You can go for a classical cutout shoulder, or get creative with some laser cuts around your waist or down the back of the dress!
