Weddings Part 1: Day Weddings

wedding13unnamedwedding2wedding12wedding3wedding6wedding9wedding10wedding8Tis the season, wedding season that is, I’m sure many of you have one or more to attend this summer. The warm weather and relaxed season are the perfect recipe for love birds tying the knot. As a wedding guest, you’ll have to plan what to wear which can be time consuming and stressful. To make it simple, take into consideration the time of day that the wedding takes place. Typically events in the evening are more formal and events during the day are more casual, unless otherwise specified by your invitation. Use this as a general rule of thumb to narrow down the options and help your outfit not be extremely over the top or too underwhelming. I feel that there is a certain casual elegance you can achieve at a day-time wedding that differs tremendously from evening-wear. You can find pieces that will stand out on their own or dress up a simple design with the perfect accessories.

1) Print & Color: If the wedding takes place outdoors, this option will be perfect. Your ensemble will have visual appeal while not being overly formal, great for an outdoor setting. Bright floral prints are exceptionally beautiful and will photograph great in the daytime sun. Look for fit-and-flare styles that are ultra flattering on many different shapes as well as super flirty and feminine. You’ll also be able to wear whichever dress you choose any day of the week and not be wasting your money on something for a wedding.

2) Maxi’s & Jumpsuits: To opt for something modern and unexpected, try jumpsuit or maxi dress. These options can be solid, printed, basic, or anything in between. No matter your age, body type, or personal style, you will certainly find a great maxi dress or jumpsuit to wear to your event. It is so easy to elevate even the simplest versions with the right accessories.

3) Accessories: Here is where you’ll be able to transform a seemingly casual dress into one fit for a wedding. In some cases, the items stated above might not be quite enough on their own, so it is up to you to add the bells and whistles, or sparkle and shine and complete the look for the occasion. A wedge or strappy heel will be an ideal option for your feet. Also, your jewelry shouldn’t be too overwhelming, so choose one statement accessory and have all others be complimentary to that.
