With the vaccine rollout upon us, a lot of summer weddings are BACK ON! Albeit slightly smaller and socially distanced. But still! I’m so excited for people to be able to celebrate their marriages again, and I think people have gotten so creative over the last year to figure out how to celebrate weddings and special milestones while not being able to celebrate in person.
There are gorgeous micro-weddings I’ve seen that feel just as special and personal as big weddings I’ve been to in the past. To be honest, there is something ultra-personal about getting to say your vows in a really small-scale setting with just a few people in attendance. Depending on what the individuals involved feel comfortable with, there is even a little bit of relief you can feel if you’re somebody who gets uncomfortable with a lot of eyes on you.
Whatever a Bride or Groom’s preference, it’s nice to know that Lovebirds these days will start to have more choices as we head into a bit more of an open society again.
Interestingly enough, I get asked pretty often about wedding guest attire, and what I’d wear for warm-weather weddings. I love this question, because I always get so excited to celebrate the people I love—and their love for one another—and dressing for a wedding can be so fun! I really love wearing a beautiful dress as a wedding guest, and I always make sure it’s something that I can wear again a few different ways so it’s a good investment.
I have a few little events to go to this Summer, so I decided I’d do some research and round up a selection of my favorite Summer Wedding Attire for anybody else that’s looking. I even included a couple of beautiful and inexpensive wedding dresses that I would wear if I were getting married in an intimate outdoor wedding this summer….not that I am, BUT a girl can fantasize ok?! LOL. Let me know which ones are your fave!
Eliora Off-The-Shoulder Maxi Dress
I just can’t get enough of this gorgeous, floral off-the-shoulder dress! I’m obsessed with the color and the cheerful print, and I love that it comes in Plus, Standard, and Petite sizing. I got this in an XS and found it was just right and even a little roomy. I’d size down!
Amaranth Puff-Sleeved Mini Dress
This dress is elegant and cute at the same time, and the shorter hem is perfect for anybody on the shorter side OR if you know your event is someplace that gets HOT!
Azeeza Rory Dress
I would absolutely wear this dress to a garden wedding. I love the puff sleeve!
Polka Dot Wrap Maxi Dress
I can’t get enough of the beautiful polka dot dress with a cascading ruffle. This could look beautiful dressed up or down and I would definitely pair it with a red lip!
Agua Bendita Menta Papier Dress
I ordered this immediately…the tonal floral print! The button detail! The perfect neckline! I can’t wait to wear it.
Mac Duggal Long-Sleeve Floral Lace Jewel-Neck Gown
If you need a serious showstopper, this is a hundred percent the dress I’d wear. I can’t stop staring at it!
Tie-waist linen jumpsuit
If you’re more of a jumpsuit gal, this J.Crew version is a cult fave for a reason. I love the linen fabric. It comes in black and a chic camel tone!
Norma Kamali Sleeveless Fishtail Dress
This sleeveless Norma Kamali dress is a STAR. And something I’ll wear again and again!
Hemant and Nandita Midi Skirt
Sometimes a really special skirt is the way to go! I’d pair this with a silk camisole and a cashmere wrap for when it gets chilly at night.
Montreal Crepe Maxi Dress
I LOVE this simple and sophisticated wedding gown. It’s so structural and would work for literally any setting, even black tie. You can add fab accessories and a veil to make it more luxe!
Marchesa Notte Tish Gown
Ok so this wedding dress is technically blush, not white, but I AM HERE FOR IT! The flowers are too pretty!
