Trendy Summer Dresses To Wear at a Wedding

Wedding season is upon us which means you'll need a fresh and summer-ready dress! For someone who’s never been to a wedding before, I was recently just invited to one. Of course, the first thing that came to my mind before even confirming my seat was what will I wear? I could only imagine how gorgeous the outdoor venue will be, the breathtaking florals and the beating sun that will shine over the garden. After a little research and shopping, I’ve come to the conclusion. If you need help choosing a perfect dress to wear at a summer wedding, I’ve got you covered! Here are five trendy summer wedding guest dresses to help you make a decision:

1. Floral and flowy:

Floral patterns are perfect for wearing year-round, but there’s no better time than the warm summer season to embrace them. You could never go wrong with floral prints; they’re so uplifting, charming and ditsy. Depending on the wedding, florals are easy to dress up or dress down. There are so many different styles to choose from but long and flowy or mini dresses are ideal for weddings. Pair the dress with sandals, wedges or a low heel and you’re good to go!

2. Puff sleeved maxi or mini-dress:

Puff-sleeved dresses are still classic styled dresses since they’re so delicate and easy. They’re the perfect option for wedding occasions since they can be styled both formally and casually. Wear a flattering maxi dress or mini dress and allow the ruffled sleeves to frame your shoulders dramatically. The dress could be paired with sandals or espadrilles to meet the classy look.

3. Satin/silk slip dress:

Satin and silk dresses have never gone out of style for special occasions. There are so many ways to style a slip dress for a wedding! A slip dress in either a midi or maxi length works. Make sure to choose a rich color that compliments the fabric and structure. Pair the dress with a low or high classy heel and you’re all set!

4. Babydoll:

Babydoll dresses have once again appeared in the fashion world for special occasions. They are super trendy, flowy and cute. Find a babydoll dress that falls right above the knee and gracefully over your curves. Wear it with a tall heel and find a flattering color that compliments you the most and style it with charming accessories.

5. One-shoulder or off-the-shoulder dress:

One-shoulder and off-the-shoulder dresses have recently become increasingly popular. The best part about them is that they come in all different styles and patterns. Depending on the wedding, these dresses can be worn more casually or formally. Find a nice lace pattern to keep it classy or get creative with vivid colors and tropical or citrus designs to feel like you’re going on vacation.

The best part about these options is that you can try all of them on and find the dress that compliments you the most. If you like dressing up and experimenting with different styles, this would be a fun way to start off your summer.
