What to Wear to a Summer Wedding
With this shopping guide, finding wedding-appropriate summery styles should be a cinch! We’ve picked out stylish, light weight dresses that will stand up to summer temperatures, and have you looking lovely!
The usual wedding attire guidelines stay about the same. Female summer wedding guests should wear lighter colors and more informal fabrics for daytime weddings; dress up a little more for evening weddings. Pick special occasion styles and formal lengths for black tie weddings. Maxi dresses, cocktail dresses, skirts with pretty tops, or jumpsuits can all be appropriate. Just remember not to wear white, or anything too ill-fitting or flashy. Men can opt for lighter color suits or blazers for daytime; darker suits for evening.
