style: what to wear to a wedding

{Dress: Jean Claude Pierlot, Belt: Top Shop, Hand Bracelet: Top Shop, Shoes: Aldo}

Wedding season is in full swing and with the various venues and uncomfortable temperatures, finding the perfect outfit can be tricky! I just attended a friends wedding and the tone was casual, the venue was outside and the temperature was HOT! Here is what I wore to this occasion and some suggestions for the perfect wedding attire for any scenario.

Some tips:
1. Wear light weight printed fabric for out-door weddings in heat. Cool and camouflaged from sweat!
2. It's still not ok to wear white, off-white or a light dress that looks white to a wedding. Be bright!
3. If you are going to an outdoor wedding, wear wedges so you are not irrigating the lawn all evening.
4. Bring a wrap or sweater to beach events or outdoor weddings in cities that cool down at night.
5. Wear something you are comfortable in, not too tight, too short or hard to move around in - it shows.

A formal or evening wedding: 


Cynthia Steffe orange halter dress / Pattern silk dress / Allen Schwartz red ball gown / BCBG Max Azria one shoulder dress

A casual wedding:

 Dolce Vita red chiffon dress / Pins and Needles lace dress / Patterned silk Slip dress / Pink Tiered dress

A semi-formal/cocktail wedding:

H&M red dress/ Zara green dress / Zara gray lace dress / Esther Boutique - pattern dress

Remember that you will be apart of your loved ones wedding photos for the rest of their lives, so dressing appropriately is so important!

  5. i love getting all dolled up for weddings! i love your green dress - you look stunning. and all of these ideas are great - i look awful in long dresses so i will always try and make longer knee length dresses appropriate - i didn't even wear a long dress to my prom or wedding!
