Style Guide: What To Wear To A Summer Wedding

The summer wedding season is upon us, which is why now is the perfect time to begin planning the perfectly chic outfit that will make you look and feel your absolute best. Deciding what to wear to a wedding can be one of the trickiest tasks ever faced in fashion because of guest etiquette and a huge amount of choice you have. It’s crucial not to leave this shopping task to the last minute, just in case you can’t find something you’re happy with. Weddings can start from mid-morning to very late at night, so it’s essential that you feel comfortable enough to last through different activities. No one wants to get to the evening and feel uncomfortable and irritated, which is why you need to pick your dress length, material, and colour accordingly.

Below are our wedding guest outfit suggestions for the different type of weddings you might be attending this season.
