Just like crafting a good tinder profile, summer weddings are events where you are invited to show off a little skin, the tan you got in Miami, and your impeccable sense of style. And like any good tinder date, showing up to summer weddings (and related events, of course!) with your best foot forward is merely just a matter of faking it till you make it.
All you need is a dash of style, a sprinkle of luck, and us!
Yes, we’re here to give you a helping hand for a smooth swipe into summer weddings.
For the Pre-Wedding
Bachelorette Party - Caught Rough Night in cinemas yet? Spoiler alert: five girls head out for a Bachelorette Party of a lifetime and end up with a… not-so-good night.
To prevent that from happening to you and your BFF bride-to-be, dress appropriately for the night! Choose a form-fitting dress that shows off your curves, but not too much. You wouldn’t want to upstage the bride-to-be, right? Opt for pieces with cut-outs to subtly show off some skin. It’s all about the balance, girl!
Tie your look together with a dainty hair clip and a gold cuff bracelet.
Bridal Shower - Ah, the classier cousin of the Bachelorette Party.
Instead of sticking with darker (read: black) dresses, choose one of these dresses with gorgeous floral prints. Don’t be afraid to play with colours as you dress for your BFF’s bridal shower. An infusion of colors would be refreshing!
Are you afraid to turn up for the bridal shower without a gift for the bride-to-be? No worries, we got you sorted! This headpiece from Lulu Frost would make your BFF feel just like a princess.
For the Beach Wedding
Yes, it might be a summer beach wedding, but that doesn’t give you the excuse of slacking off and wearing slippers to the wedding! Listen to you - slippers!
For a balmy beach wedding in the heat of summer, we would suggest a dress made of lightweight and breathable material. Pair your outfit with a pair of sand-proof flats.
Finally, upgrade your cute outfit to breathtaking with some accessories. The earrings and ring would add sufficient blink to your look but not take attention away from the bride. Because that would be quite rude, don’t you think?
It is her big day, after all!
For the Garden Wedding
Pro-tip: Avoid stilettos at all cost! Wear flats or wedges to prevent yourself from sinking into soft grass or soil.
Pair your shoes with a cute summer dress in lighter colours. Floral prints would work perfectly in a garden wedding (you’ll look more adorable than a flower, you cutie). If floral prints are not your thing, pick a simple light-coloured sundress!
Complete your look with a pair of delicate earrings and a statement piece.
For the Black Tie Wedding
How can this be complete without a selection of evening gowns perfect for a Black Tie wedding?
Just because it’s called a Black Tie wedding doesn’t mean you have to stick with black gowns. Spice things up with embellished silver designs on your gown and the most gorgeous accessories!
Finally, complete your outfit with a delicious pair of heels.
