“What to wear to a Summer wedding”

Wedding season is upon us!  Most weddings take place in June and July so it’s time to start getting your wedding attire figured out.  In the past, I’ve bought dresses to wear to weddings and then ended up only wearing it once or twice.  So, I’ve learned not to spend a fortune.  I’ve found some great options all under $100. The Lace top and skirt set I am wearing is under $75 and totally chic for a wedding!  It runs small so size up!  Lace is timeless and always a great idea for a wedding. It works for daytime and evening, so you can’t go wrong!  When shopping for that perfect dress here are some things to keep in mind:

-Classic is always in style! Go for pastels, lace, and floral.

-The age old rule: Don’t wear white to a wedding, cream, ivory, or any pale color that might resemble white

-Don’t show too much skin.  It’s not our day, so avoid dressing in a way that draws attention to yourself .  Nothing super short, tight, and SOME cleavage is allowed, but keep it tasteful.

-I also avoid wearing black to weddings.  It’s supposed to a joyful day!

-Experiment with current trends.  An off the shoulder, cold shoulder, or even some (tasteful) cut-outs are a fun trend to incorporate into your wedding attire.

-If there is going to be lot’s of standing or dancing at the reception, make sure your shoes are at least moderately comfortable.  If you MUST wear your new 4 inch stilettos, bring a change of shoes with you!

I hope this makes your quest for the perfect wedding dress/outfit a little easier!  How many weddings are on your calendar this year?  This is going to be a down year for us I think, which I’m ok with 🙂  Please leave questions or comments! I would LOVE to hear from you!
