What To Wear To A Summer Wedding

Figuring out what to wear to a wedding can be stressful, especially when the invite says “creative black tie”, “elegant evening”, “black tie optional”, “beach chic” and more. We help you crack the wedding dress code with these head-to-toe suggestions.


Black Tie / Black Tie Optional Evening Wedding: Black tie doesn’t mean you must wear black. We prefer something much more interesting, but just as elegant, than basic black. The purple gown below is bright and sophisticated, not to mention comfortable and flattering. We paired it with black and silver accessories that add just the right amount of evening shine. Bonus: this look is classic and timeless, so you’ll wear it for years to come.

Creative Black Tie / Daytime Wedding:
Daytime affairs or less formal evening weddings offer the opportunity to get creative. Dark dresses can feel too heavy for your summer event, especially if it occurs during the day. This chic printed dress can be dressed up with evening-worthy gold accessories or dressed down with something more simple. Replace the high heels with a flat gold sandal and you’re ready for a beach wedding or garden party.
