Wedding season has commenced and will be in full swing before you know it. With June being the biggest month for nuptial bashes, you might as well start planning your summer wedding wardrobe now.
Luckily this is the season for the feminine floral dresses. They are perfect for day and afternoon weddings. Plus they can even make an appearance at those lovely bridal showers. If you prefer to keep your arms covered, a long-sleeve dress like this floral wrap number from Maggy London is simply fabulous. The draping, length and bold floral print are perfect for virtually any figure type. Stick with the neutral heels and demure jewelry to keep it all about the dress. Nic + Zoe Blue Blossom dress simply blooms in a mix of aqua flowers. With a simpler silhouette like this, a bold statement necklace or cuff bracelet wouldn’t be out of the question.
If you’re planning to attend an evening wedding, you may want to splurge and glam it up a touch more in a long gown. Something like this Roberto Cavalli Geometric Print Gown still showcases bold print. This is a statement-making gown that is quite sophisticated for evening, even in jersey fabric. With a simple updo and diamond stud earrings, there is something very glamorous about this look for an evening wedding.
Want something more classic for evening but still on trend? This black lace Eliza J dress is just perfect with ruching on the side to whittle your waist for optimal figure flattery!
For more formal eveningwear styles we just love lace and embroidery! A neutral shade is a nice alternative to black for a summer wedding. As long as the bride has opted for white or ivory over champagne shades, you are in good shape with a lovely look like this 2-piece set form J Kara. We also found another nice alternative if you prefer sleeves. The lace bolero styling on this Navy Blue Tadashi dress is very sophisticated and pretty timeless.
To get the maximum mileage out of your summer wedding wardrobe, a well made convertible dress can be a great option. The more ways you can style it the more weddings you can wear it too! We all appreciate being able to wear the same dress to more than one event. This Twobirds Convertible Jersey Dress in lavender can be reworked 15 different ways! They even have a video on Nordstrom’s to show you how.
Any one of these styles would be a beautiful choice for a summer wedding. Select a style that fits and flatters you. The more detailed the silhouette, or bolder the print, the less you need to accessorize. Neutral shoes make for an easy add on and a simple clutch will hold your necessities. Have a little fun shopping for your summer wedding wardrobe!
