What to wear to a low-key summer wedding

Q. I’m going to a wedding on June 15 at a country B&B in Vermont. It’s a very intimate – only 30 guests – outdoor ceremony with a dinner afterward but no real “reception” or dancing. The bride said “there is no dress code” when I asked. What on earth do I wear? The B&B is kind of upscale/expensive, but she kept stressing the wedding was low key. Also, I’m bringing my 6 month old son, so I don’t want to wear anything too expensive or fine materials that would get ruined. Thank you!!

A. For a low-key summer wedding with no dress code, it’s time to bring out your prettiest little summer dress. Since it’s not black tie, or even cocktail attire, you can wear anything from a short flirty dress to a long summery maxi. Take advantage of the country outdoor/indoor setting and look for bright colors and pretty prints. A strappy sandal or wedge completes the look. Here are four dresses to inspire you.
