What To Wear To A Summer Wedding – Outfit Ideas!

Casual or Day Time

Attending a wedding that is casual in nature or begins before 5 o’clock calls for a flirty and feminine sundress with wedges or simple skirt/blouse combo. Stilettos and over-the-top jewelry may be out of place at a laid back event like this.

Beach or Beach Formal

If your friends are opting for a boho beach wedding, remember your location! Flat sandals are a perfect option for walking across sand and look fabulous paired with a flowy maxi dress and loose, wavy hair. Keep your makeup equally minimal and don’t forget some amazing sunglasses!


The most common attire for weddings that begin after 5 o’clock is cocktail attire. Look for a great dress or a to-die-for dressy jumpsuit. Stunning heels, glam makeup, and bold jewelry will complete your look.

Black Tie

Getting an invite to an elaborate black tie wedding is both exciting and daunting! Wondering what to wear to a summer wedding with black tie noted attire?  The elegant venue and evening setting call for a jaw dropping floor length gown or beaded cocktail dress in a darker hue. This is one to go all out on hair and makeup for and don’t forget the jewels!
