What to Wear | Summer Weddings

07.02.15

Can you feel it? Love is in the air! Summer weddings are a long honored tradition which means brides and grooms from across the country are preparing to say their “I do’s” as we speak.

For some (including those of us who aren’t getting married this summer), it can be a very busy time of year – meaning it’s not rare to have more than a few weddings in your plans for the next couple months.  If this all sounds familiar you are most likely already planning your ensembles for the summer, and we’re here to help. Here is our list of do’s and don’ts when it comes to dressing for a wedding.

 

DO be Comfortable

comfy

A wedding will likely take up the majority of your day and all of the evening…keep this in mind when selecting your look. Wear shoes that can stand the test of time and always ensure you wear something that won’t need much adjusting throughout the night. Try your outfit on a few days before the wedding just to make sure it fits like a glove and that you’re comfortable sitting, dancing and standing in it.

 

DO Keep it Classy

There is something to be said about the classic look of an A-line party skirt or a ever chic jump suit. Weddings are a highly documented time and no one wants to look back on their photos only to see some of their guests who decided to take a chance with fashion that day and rock something completely outside the box. Keep in mind that the day belongs to the bride and groom, they’re the ones who should be standing out in the photos .. not you.

 

DO Express Yourself

While we’re all for keeping the looks classy and elegant, we absolutely love those who are able to embrace their own style in subtle yet effective ways. If you’re looking to add your own personal flare to your ensemble use accessories and shoes to achieve your goal. Weddings can also be a fantastic place to make new friends and meet new people so let your true self show and embrace your inner stylist.

 

DON’T Wear White

This is one of those rules we’ve all seen broken but ladies, now is not the time. Respect the bride and groom by opting not to wear your favourite white summer dress. Instead, take the opportunity to play with other lighter tones such as pale rose, baby yellows and all different kinds of creams.

 

DON’T Assume

If you find yourself unsure about your outfit selection consult a friend or even the bride/groom in the days leading up to the big event. Sometimes dress codes can be confusing – what does formal garden party really mean anyways? Don’t be afraid to ask for clarification. Chances are you’re not alone and others have wondered the same thing.
