It’s that time of year again. Summer wedding time. It’s likely you are invited to at least one wedding this summer, and maybe you have started thinking about what to wear. It can be difficult planning your outfit – you don’t want to upstage the bride, but want to fit the theme of the day and look on trend.
Have a look below for some much-needed outfit inspiration from Instagram. Which look is your favourite?
1. Floral maxi dress
If you’re heading to a wedding which you know isn’t going to be too formal, then this beautiful floral maxi dress would fit the occasion perfectly.
Florals are perfect for both weddings and the summer months, and the maxi length lends the outfit a laid back feel.
Also a great option if you don’t want to show off too much skin. This outfit would also be perfect for a wedding abroad in a hot country – loose flowing material would help you keep cool on a scorching hot long day.
We love Fleur’s sunglasses in this outfit.
Steal her style with the MCM MCM635S. The bold black frames and wayfarer style would look fab teamed with any laid back summer wedding outfit, adding a touch of chic and glamour for the special occasion.
2. Elegant black maxi dress
Had the most wonderful time at the #FundFair with @guerlain & some of my favourite ladies last night 🌟thank you to everyone who tuned in to my live get ready with me & helped me pick my outfit! 🤳❤This dress had so much love last night & I've just added it on amelialiana.com/shop andddd it's currently half price on sale! 🌸
Who said black isn’t suitable for weddings?
If you are only attending the evening reception of a formal wedding then a gorgeous black dress like Amelia Liana’s here would be a fantastic option.
Black is one of those colours that looks great on everyone and is also really slimming. We love how Amelia’s dress above encompasses sections of lace and pretty mesh material, so that the black colour is not too overpowering.
Keep accessories simple with this outfit and team with nude or neutral coloured shoes and clutch bag.
3. Pretty tulle dress
This would be the ideal summer outfit for a more formal wedding day. The gorgeous tulle material lends the outfit a very feminine and glamorous air, whilst the pastel colour is perfect for a beautiful summer’s day.
The added lace detailing on the sleeves and an extra element of charm to the look.
4. Pair a skirt and a top
If you want something a little different from the standard one-piece dress, then why not think about wearing a separate skirt and top combo?
YouTuber Niomi Smart paired a gorgeous floral skirt with a pretty white lace top and nude heels, creating an outfit both unique and ideally suited for a wedding.
The great thing with this option is that you don’t have to worry about someone else wearing the same outfit as you, and you can buy a top and skirt which perfectly suit your body shape.
5. Go for off the shoulder
Off the shoulder or bardot tops are very much in fashion this summer, and look super pretty and girly too.
Make like YouTuber Becky here and go for a floral option, or for a retro wedding why not opt for a polka dot dress?
There are also plenty of gorgeous bardot tops out there on the market, which would look fab paired with a skirt or some wide leg trousers.
