There was a period in our lives when we spent every weekend at weddings (or wedding-related events) during the summers. These days, we attend far fewer weddings, and since Covid hit, we haven’t been to a single one. However, all those postponed nuptials seem to be rescheduled for this summer, and people are ready to get dressed and party! I am predicting that this will be the summer of weddings (and wedding-related celebrations) once again. So I’m not surprised that my DMs have been flooded recently with questions about what to wear to a summer wedding.
All those summer nuptials, engagement parties, and showers typically entailed traveling to a different scenic outdoor setting to celebrate the happy couple and shower them in expensive gifts. Not only can it all add up and use up your vacation days quickly, but dressing for all the different types of summer wedding settings and ~creative~ dress codes can be pretty overwhelming. Plus, there’s weather to keep in mind and grass or sand. Bottom line: It can be hard to figure out what to wear a summer wedding. Having been to a wedding in just about every type of setting and corner of the world (my husband has a lot of friends and family), I now consider myself a bit of an expert at summer wedding guest dressing. So consider this your ultimate guide for what to wear to a summer wedding.
