What Should I Wear to an Outdoor Wedding?

Summer is our favorite time of year. It’s when we go on vacations, spend time at the beach, and most importantly... it’s wedding season!

Thanks to the warm weather, ceremonies move to outdoor spaces to make the most of the sunshine. We have some tips about what to wear to an alfresco ceremony in summer. 

Outdoor weddings are the easiest to dress for. Think light, breathable fabrics and cute sandals or wedge heels.  Whether it’s a beach or garden party you should stick to flat shoes that won’t sink into the sand or grass. Loose fitting clothing made of natural fibers are the best choice when you are out-of–doors. They will keep you stay cool in the sun. You can find a look that balances comfort and formality without spending a lot.  

If the wedding is a formal one, you can still wear a summer dress that keeps within the dress code.  Just opt for lighter colors and fabrics. We love summer looks like this one shoulder dress…


If you don’t feel comfortable showing your arms you should choose an outfit with a light, breezy cardigan or jacket that won’t have you sweating in the heat. Another option is a dress with lace sleeves because it’s a fabric that covers the arms while modestly showing some skin.

If you’re going to a more casual wedding, then floral patterns are the perfect choice. Casual doesn’t mean you should turn up in a pair of jeans and a T-shirt. You can look casual but score a balance between informal and chic with a pretty sundress or a blouse and skirt.

Should you be invited to a beach wedding, you can score a hit with a seaside look of a solid or printed chiffon gown. It’s the perfect look for a relaxed occasion while taking the elements and the sand into consideration.
