Summer is here, also known by many as wedding season. Everyone loves to tie the knot in the shine of the summer sun. That also means that you have to be prepared for the occasion. There are a lot of different factors that play into what is best to wear to a summer wedding, but no matter what, you need to look great!
You should always dress in a way that is best for your body type and personal style. However, when you are going to a wedding, there are some rules that you need to abide by. There are a few different elements to consider, so it is best to be prepared with a few great options for your summer weddings. Here are some tips on what to wear to a summer wedding this year.
For an outdoor wedding…
More people are following the trend of the rustic, informal outdoor wedding. The mood at these types of weddings is usually casual and laid back, but you still want to be dressed up. Look to your invitation to confirm whether or not the dress attire is semi-formal or black tie.
In this case, your attire should reflect the weather that day. If it is going to be a hot day on the beach, you should wear a sleeveless mini dress to stay cool. You should buy the perfect fitting strapless bra so you can wear a cool strapless dress.
For an indoor formal wedding…
When the wedding is inside, you don’t have to worry about the weather as much, but you still need to consider the setting when picking out your attire. Indoor formal weddings are usually in a church.
You need to be mindful of the bride and grooms’ religious preferences and abide by the rules of their church. This usually means that you are not showing too much skin.
If you want, you could wear that strapless dress with a cardigan over it during the ceremony to cover up and shed that layer for the reception.
For an indoor informal wedding…
Along with the more relaxed trends that are happening in outdoor weddings, many people are also planning informal indoor weddings this year. However, you should not take the term “informal” too literally in this case. Your attire should still be semi-formal.
Think of a summer dress is a more casual material. For example, instead of wearing a tight-fitting satin dress, wear a flowing, printed dress in silk or lace. You will look cute and appropriate in the setting of an informal indoor wedding.
For the reception…
This is the time when you can really let your hair down, literally. All of the same rules usually apply to receptions no matter what type of wedding to go to. You can let your hair down, switch from your high heels to flat shoes for dancing and worry a little less about covering up.
Many guests wear the same outfit throughout the night, but a new popular trend that is being accepted not only by brides and the wedding party is to change outfits completely for the reception.
You can consider switching out of the tight dress that doesn’t allow you to breathe into one that let you relax and dance easily.
