When you receive that invite for nuptials in May, June, July or August, you know exactly what you will wear. Warm weather calls for bright colors, sassy patterns, couture heels and strappy stilettos. Long locks, or a sweet up-do – you can take your pick. The summer weather is so easy to work with that most any gown length, silhouette or style will do!
Dressing for a wedding as a guest, however, is a tad more complex. Style is naturally the most important factor in selecting what you will wear, but staying stylish and being comfortable is at the top of any lady’s priority list as well.
Needless to say, in an effort to prepare for a wedding, you mustn’t overlook the importance of choosing just the right seasonal color palette and prints. You’ll need a gown that is flattering and of a weather-appropriate length. Shoes must be sexy, yet practical. Accessories become absolutely key, from snagging that perfect clutch to donning a weather-worthy shrug. Each element is an aspect of your wedding ensemble that can either make or break the entire look.
Let us get you headed in the right direction with a few looks that we feel will leave you looking your wedding best!
