What to wear to a summer wedding

Chances are you’ve already been to a few summer weddings – and you probably have several more marked on your calendar between now and Labor Day. If you’re already worried about repeating outfits and need some fresh wedding-wear inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve picked out some fabulous frocks perfect for summer nuptials.

What to wear to a summer wedding

1. Strapless dress (, $273), 2. Crepe dress (, $390),
3. Sleeveless dress (, $233), 4. Structured sleeveless dress (Top Shop, $95)

1Gorgeous geometric

If you’re getting tired of wearing the same old thing to your roster of summer weddings, spice up your look with this bold strapless dress with a colorful geometric pattern (, $273). We love the sweetheart neckline and eye-catching combination of blue, yellow, green and peach.

2Eye on ikat

Turn heads in this vibrant Alice + Olivia ikat-print crepe dress (, $390) in a rainbow of lush hues. The cross-over V-neck and gathered bust make for a flattering fit and the low back with a black cut-out pattern adds a dash of sex appeal to this pretty look.

3Cute cut away

Lilac is a classic summer hue and perfect for a hot weather wedding. We found a gorgeous, understated option that exudes elegance in this cotton sleeveless dress with a double layer pleated skirt (, $233). The soft shade of lilac and the corset-style top make this a sophisticated pick for summer nuptials.

4Stylishly structured

We couldn’t resist adding this structured sleeveless dress in a rich shade of yellow (Top Shop, $95) to our list of summer wedding styles. The bold hue is a perfect complement to the heavily pleated skirt and high neckline making for a well-balanced and refined look for the next wedding on your list.

5. Lace dress (Anthropologie, $258), 6. Pink dress (Lily Pulitzer, $198),
7. Floral dress (Gap, $70), 8. Striped dress (Mod Cloth, $100)

5Lovely lace

Look effortlessly chic in this beautiful half lace, half jersey dress (Anthropologie, $258) featuring a strapless lace top with a sweetheart neckline and a gathered skirt in a soft shade of green. We love the relaxed, vintage vibe and unique look of this flattering frock.

6Pretty in pink

Half the fun of summer weddings is having a bit more leeway where attire is concerned. They tend to be semi-formal affairs which frees you up to opt for more playful prints. We love this pink floral frock (Lily Pulitzer, $198) featuring an empire seam and an exposed zipper down the front that adds a fun twist we love.

7Fun with floral

There’s something about floral frocks that just scream summer and we think they really are a no-brainer when it comes to summer wedding wear. You’ll love this asymmetrical black floral print style (Gap, $70) featuring a cowl neck and pintucked pleats at one shoulder with cascading ruffle trim.

8Say it with stripes

Attend your next summer wedding wearing stripes – a stylishly summery print. We love this structured linen look (Mod Cloth, $100) with wide stripes in faded shades of beige, green, blue and gray. The pleated skirt adds a feminine touch and the pretty, muted palette make this a must for a summer ceremony.
