Wedding Attire

Tuesday, June 27, 2017


It definitely has been feeling like summer. Sure there  are days where I dread the sun blazing on me, but the majority of the time it allows me the chance to break out my white ruffle dresses, red dresses with sleeves, or any other color for that matter. Dresses just allow your lower half to breathe, if you know what I mean. Everyone always thinks that us ladies put so much effort into our outfits when we’re rocking a dress. In reality though, all we did was look in our closet and say, “what’s the easiest thing to throw on” …don’t deny it!

While dresses are easy to plan an outfit, it’s definitely hard shopping for one that’s “perfect”. I have  a wedding to attend at the end of the summer and boy let me tell you, I’ve been on the hunt every chance I get. I have one in mind, but I need to order it online. Cross your fingers that it fits because we all know how trusty you have to be with online clothing. I would tell y’all what the dress looks like, but I want to save it for a blog post…..so you’ll just have to wait. I guess I could give you a little hint….think Barbie!


I decided since it’s so hard to decide on a “special event dress”, I thought I would share some options with y’all.  I’m guilty of wearing black all day any day. Even for dresses, I’m instantly attracted to black. I’m trying to ween my way off of that though. When you go to a summer wedding, you want to be wearing bright-ish colors and maybe a fun print. People always say you shouldn’t wear anything too “loud”, but if it’s cute, classy, and not tacky…..go for it! Don't worry, no matter how fancy or what "style" of wedding you're attending, I've got you covered!


I don't know why, but whenever I think of a formal wedding, I think of lace. It's just so elegant. Typically, I think of black lace dresses as ones for wedding, but remember what I said....let's avoid black all together. Which is why, this red lace dress is the perfect go to! I'm inlove with the intricate details on the neckline and the slit in the back. 

The back on this laceup dress is absolutely gorgeous! I've seen quite a few similar solid dresses with the same detail, but I think the floral print adds a little extra umph! The sheer fabric is so delicate and soft looking. And I love this shade of blue. It's vibrant not in your face blue. 


Weddings that take place in a backyard, or under a tent are a little bit tricky to dress for. You don't want to be under or over dressed. No one likes feeling out of place! I've found the perfect medium for you. This gingham dress is perfect because it's on trend, but it also has that laid back look. Throw on some sandals or wedges, and you're good to go! Plus, this dress can be worn on any summer day, not just a wedding. 

First off, I've never actually been to a beach wedding. I think it would be so gorgeous with the crashing waves and the sand as a backdrop. If I was going to one though, you better believe I'll be wearing a tropical print like this halter dress. I love that this palm print has daisies mixed into it. Plus it has an open back.....how gosh darn cute!

  7. Finding a wedding guest dress is always a challenge. But you're right, knowing the theme of the wedding can help narrow it down!
