Not sure what to wear to a wedding this summer? Did the invite not say formal or semi-formal? If you are like me, you don’t want to show up underdressed but also want to be comfortable!
The first thing I always consider is the location when picking out my outfit. Google the venue and maybe there are pics of past weddings there to inspire you.
If you’re stressed out about style, I have some great options for you to choose from! That’s why I’m excited to share ideas on what to wear to a wedding this summer.
Helpful tip: if your dress is simple, elevate the look with accessories to add a pop of color or some pizazz. Earrings can add color and flair to any dress.
If the invite says “black tie” this is the most formal of occasions, generally held in the evening. A chic cocktail dress or long gown is usually appropriate. Your date should wear a tuxedo.
Tropical or Beach Wedding
Tropical weddings are usually humid and hot affairs so I usually wear something lightweight like cotton. I love wearing a cotton sundress and nice sandals or wedges to casual weddings.
If the wedding is outside you can throw on a sunhat to protect your face from the rays and keep your blowout intact!
Linen is a great choice for an outdoor or beach wedding. Just remember it wrinkles easily! I sometimes carry a little travel steamer with me like the one below, especially if I think the hotel might not offer this service.
Casual or Semi Casual Wedding
If it’s an evening affair I would wear a darker color. I love a little cocktail dress for semi-casual weddings like the ones below.
If it’s a daytime event, a little pastel dress is perfect for the occasion. If you are not sure if what your planning to wear is dressy enough…..it’s probably not. Upgrade it a notch. I would always rather be overdressed than underdressed!
