An outdoor summer wedding is romantic, but it can cause panic with wedding guests trying to decide what to wear. Here, a guide to summer wedding attire:
- Take your cue from about the level of formality for a summer wedding from what the invitation says. Only an after six, "White Tie" or "Ultra Formal" would require a long gown (and those invites are very rare).
- Choose pretty florals or yummy colors (pink, yellow, blue) for daytime or outdoor weddings.
- Dress up more for weddings after 6 P.M., but still keep your look summery (sleeveless dresses, strappy sandals, glowing skin).
- Do keep hairdos under control in hot weather with soft updos or pretty hair barrettes.
- Don't wear white because it competes with the bride.
- Don't wear hosiery, heavy makeup or chunky jewelry in hot, humid climates or you'll melt.
- Don't dress too sexy -- belly showing or lots of cleavage -- because it's not an appropriate occasion to dress like a tart.
