Summer Wedding Guest Dress Guide


Summer Wedding Guest Dress Guide

Non-traditional weddings – while popular – keeps causing some problems. “John and Marie are getting married in a meat processing factory that’s been converted into a multimedia art space. Should I wear a ball gown?” Between vaguely worded invitations, non-traditional venues, and a host of other complications, figuring out what to wear to the modern wedding can be a confounding process.

There are some old school rules that still apply. For instance, never under any circumstances should you wear white, off-white, eggshell white, ivory, or really any hue that your boyfriend would dismissively call “white.” Don’t outshine the bride, when it comes showing skin air on the conservative side, etc. “But how do I hunt for specific pieces?!” you may be asking yourself. Fear not – see below for a list of undeniably chic wedding apparel options that will allow you to stun appropriately at any wedding event.

Sleeveless Midi Sheath Dress

Complete the look with a pair of heels and a dark monochrome blazer.

Understated, endlessly accessorizable (is that even a word? who cares), and seriously rewearable (that’s got to be a word…) this black ruffle midi dress is an effortlessly adorable blank canvass that you dress up or down as much as you want. For a wedding, break it out with a pair of white strappy heels, and some loud and proud jewelry.
