Have you often wondered how to dress for a summer wedding? Here are some tips for dressing up for a summer wedding.
How to dress for a Summer Wedding?
Always ensure you know about the location of the wedding before making any plans to shop for the attire. Ask the bride or groom about the kind of dress code that would be preferred. This would probably give you an idea for the same. It would at least help you to select the right wedding attire.
You can go in for complete formals if the summer wedding is planned at an indoor venue. If outdoors, for example, on a beach, you can choose many options! The venue can give you a wider option to plan for the summer wedding attire.
You can opt for layers for a summer wedding. The summer night can be cool at times so you can opt for that stylish shrug. In case the weather gets too hot and humid, you can pull of the shrug! Layered clothing is very much in vogue for formal as well as casual occasions.
You can opt for pretty colors and vibrant shades to bring the true flavor of the summer season. Summer is an ideal time to choose bright colors and floral patterns. This is the time you can really experiment with patterns and colors. These shades are ideal for daytime summer weddings.
If the wedding is an evening affair, you can make your attire more dressy. Sleeveless dresses that have stylish silhouettes would be an ideal option.
While dressing for a summer wedding, you can show off your gorgeous skin by wearing some pretty halters. Minimal make up combined with flawless skin is the best accessory you can have! (Top it with a gorgeous smile!)
The summer season is bound to have all the effects of the scorching heat on you no matter how high you turn the air conditioner on. You can opt for lightweight fabrics such as cotton, chiffon, crepe, organza and georgette that are combined with other fabrics to create a unique outfit. Look for elegant designs that are easy to manage throughout the day.
Go a bit easy on the jewelry. Summer weddings are not the right time to sport heavy and elaborate jewelry items. Be simple and elegant for the daytime. Keep the heavy designs for the night!
Check out with local designers if you are looking for an exclusive ensemble. Many outlets would help you to select the right fabric and silhouette and ensure you are comfortable without compromising on the style factor.
Selecting the right footwear is of utmost importance for a summer wedding. You can wear strappy sandals for daytime weddings. Your feet also need to breathe; therefore comfort is the key factor. A beach wedding does not even need footwear! The last thing you would need is walking around in high-heeled stilettos in the sand!
Here’s hoping these ideas would help you to dress up in the most exclusive manner possible for the summer wedding. Do not forget your suntan lotion!
