What to Wear to Every Summer Wedding


fashion blogger mia mia mine wearing a pink dress in miamiSummer is peak wedding season – and I’m expecting this year to be a busy one after all the cancellations and postponements that happened throughout covid. With that said, you’ll want stacks of outfits lined up to fit any environment from beach ceremonies all the way to black tie events. Fortunately, summer’s pleasant weather means that there’s an infinite amount of dresses to pick from. I’m loving all the fun styles that span across bold colors, lively prints and romantic designs. Since there are so many options right now, I wanted to help you all narrow down the best ones depending on the type of wedding you might be attending. So if you’re on the hunt for the perfect dress, keep scrolling.

Backyard Wedding

The beauty of summer weddings is that they can happen anywhere – including a couple’s own backyard. If you happen to be invited to such event, you’ll want to pick something comfortable to wear. That usually consists of an off-the shoulder neckline, breezy fit, and shorter hemline for me. Dresses that skew a little casual work well here, so you can get away with just about anything.

Beach Wedding

Destination weddings taking place at a beach are all about floaty, floral dresses. They always look sublime in the wind – and they’re incredibly easy to move around in. Best of all, you can re-wear them for the countless occasions to come throughout summer.

Traditional Wedding

Traditional weddings that take place at a hotel, country club or a beautiful tent are the easiest to dress for because anything goes. To accommodate the sweltering weather, I’d recommend a midi or mini length with exposed shoulders. You can opt for sleeves if you know you’ll be cold indoors.

Black Tie

For me, black tie weddings are all about show-stopping gowns. Whether it’s a minimalist column silhouette or a cascading high-low hemline, you can easily nail the dress code. These dresses are often statement makers in themselves, so you can keep the styling to a minimum. Just add heels and a bag – and you’re good to go.

All White

All white weddings are becoming more of a thing – and I personally think they’re absolutely stunning. I would only advocate wearing a white dress if the bride calls for it. If you’re lucky enough to be invited to a white-themed wedding, you’re in luck because there are tons of ethereal white dresses to choose from.
