Alright ladies, Summer is officially here, which means there are lot of weddings to attend and dresses to choose from, according on your style and preference of course! Everything from rich velvets to fall florals with sophisticated prints will be filling the rails this season. Finding what to wear to a wedding can be pretty daunting — especially when it comes to nailing down the specifics, but not entirely impossible. 

Try to focus on finding wedding attire that complements the overall style of the occasion rather than matching the wedding and the people around you. So, whether you are headed to a modern wedding or something a little more traditional, here are a few outfit ideas to help you stay on track with the latest trends.

Traditional/Classic Dresses

This is the type of wedding that you want to go completely formal. Choosing a chic dress that finishes anywhere between the ankle and the knee is your safest bet. Choose between simple print and block hue for color. Go with a style that is a little more polished and structured than you would in other types of weddings, traditional venues call for a higher dress code. Add an extra dose of glamour with a stylish do.

Beach Summer Dresses

There is no need to go super formal on a beach wedding as they tend to be the most casual of all weddings. That being said, a pair of jeans is not going to cut it, absolutely not. A gorgeous maxi dress would be the best fit for the occasion as it has the least chance of blowing up, is comfortable to walk in, and its length fits in well with the beach feel. For a sensible, chic look, stick with a gorgeous pair of sandals.

Dresses for a Country Summer Wedding

Country weddings are more about simplicity. Rather than glitz or glamour, an understated style will carry the day in a country wedding. The theme will be rotating around nature, so keep that in mind when choosing your outfit. The ideal dress for a country wedding will be beautiful, yet practical and perfect for outdoors. The ideal colors to choose from are red, pink, soft yellow and lilac. Try to avoid stilettos with your dress; block heels or a pair of beautiful wedges would be more appropriate.

If you’re planning to attend a wedding ceremony this summer, there are a lot of factors to consider before choosing what to wear. Always remember: Dress appropriately for both season and occasion. Don’t forget to switch up the accessories to match your outfit!
