what to wear to an outdoor wedding

by Kristina Morgan | | 0 Comments

Looking for something to wear to a summer wedding? start by checking the invitation and from there proceed to buy your dress according to the occasion. if the invitation isn't clear, take cues from the time of the wedding and the location to figure out what to wear. whether you’ll be attending a beach wedding, rooftop party or a garden soiree, we've got you covered on the perfect wedding guest ensemble.

the beach wedding


this beach-chic dress is perfect for the ceremony and reception. it makes a statement without stealing attention away from the bride. style your dress with sand-friendly shoes like wedges in a neutral tone, a printed clutch and don’t forget your shades!

rooftop reception

for a figure-flattering fit, get a sheath dress! this classic, 50s-inspired dress can work for a city rooftop party, but also a fancier wedding at a country club. wear it with a jeweled necklace, embellished clutch, and your favorite stilettos. hair and makeup should be as a natural as possible.

formal outdoor wedding

for a dramatic evening look, a bold hue is the way to go. style the gown with heels, a statement ring and match your clutch to the color of your shoes. a sleek chignon and nude lips go great with this colorful dress.

the garden party

a great option for an outdoor wedding is wearing floral prints. this vibrant pink dress is not only feminine but sophisticated enough for a garden party. pair with stacked heels to avoid sinking into the grass.

cocktail attire


you can wear this stylish little black dress again and again after the wedding is over. accessorize with a printed clutch, high heels, and a cocktail ring. makeup and hair can include classic red lips and a top bun.


wedding attire doesn’t have to be boring. just because you’re not getting married there’s no reason why you can’t look fantastic. after all, as long as you don’t wear white and steal attention from the bride you should aspire to look your best.
