Goddiva’s Trend Alert: What to Wear to a Summer Wedding

by Goddiva Account 05 Jul 2024

Hey there, fashion-forward friends! Summer is here, and you know what that means – wedding season is in full swing! Whether you're the bride, a bridesmaid, or just a guest, choosing the perfect outfit can be as daunting as catching that bouquet. Fear not, because I'm here to give you the scoop on the hottest trends to rock at this summer's weddings.

Let's start with everyone's favourite – floral prints! Blooms are not just for bouquets anymore. Floral dresses, skirts, and even jumpsuits are all the rage this season. Go big and bold with vibrant patterns or keep it subtle with delicate, pastel petals. Pair your floral ensemble with some strappy sandals and a sun hat for an effortlessly chic look that screams summer romance.

Now, let's talk about colours that pop like fireworks – lime green, hot pinks, and fiery reds. These bold hues are perfect for making a statement at any wedding. Whether you opt for a lime green maxi dress that flows with every step or a hot pink blazer paired with sleek trousers, you're sure to turn heads. Don't be afraid to mix and match these vibrant colours for an eye-catching ensemble that exudes confidence and style.

If you prefer something a bit more classic, you can't go wrong with shades of blue. From serene sky blues to deep navy tones, blue is always a timeless choice for summer weddings. A breezy blue sundress paired with wedge sandals is perfect for a beachside ceremony, while a navy suit with a crisp white shirt is ideal for more formal affairs. Blue complements a wide range of skin tones and is effortlessly elegant no matter the setting.

Let's talk about two summer wedding staples: midi and maxi dresses, along with their equally trendy counterpart, jumpsuits.

Midi dresses are a perfect blend of sophistication and comfort. Falling below the knee and often ending mid-calf, they offer a flattering silhouette that suits various body types. Opt for a floral midi dress with a cinched waist to accentuate your curves, or choose a sleek, solid-coloured option for a minimalist yet chic look. Pair it with heels or flats depending on the formality of the occasion, and you're ready to dance the night away in style.

On the other hand, if you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a maxi dress is your go-to. Flowing all the way down to the ankles or floor, maxi dresses exude elegance and glamour. Whether you prefer bold prints or understated solids, there's a maxi dress to suit every taste. Consider a vibrant hot pink maxi for a summer garden wedding, or a classic black maxi with intricate lace details for a formal evening affair. Accessorize with statement jewellery and a clutch to complete your ensemble.

For those who dare to be different, jumpsuits are a fashion-forward alternative to dresses. Offering the same ease of movement and versatility, jumpsuits come in various styles, from tailored to relaxed fits. A floral jumpsuit with wide-leg pants can be just as flattering as a fitted jumpsuit in a bold, solid colour. Add a belt to define your waist and heels to elongate your legs for a look that's both modern and sophisticated. Jumpsuits are perfect for weddings where you want to stand out while staying comfortable throughout the festivities.

Whether you choose a midi dress for its timeless elegance, a maxi dress for its sweeping glamour, or a jumpsuit for its contemporary edge, each option allows you to express your personal style while adhering to the wedding's dress code. Remember, the key to pulling off any of these looks is confidence – wear what makes you feel fabulous, and you'll undoubtedly be the best-dressed guest at any summer wedding!

Accessorizing is key to completing your wedding guest look. Opt for statement jewellery pieces like chandelier earrings or a chunky necklace to add a touch of glam to your outfit. Grab a stylish clutch to hold your essentials and don't forget a chic pair of sunglasses for outdoor celebrations.

When it comes to footwear, comfort is key, especially if you plan to dance the night away. Wedge sandals, block heels, or stylish flats are all great options that marry fashion with functionality. Choose a pair that complements your outfit and allows you to move with ease.

Lastly, don't forget about the importance of layering. Even summer nights can get chilly, so bring along a lightweight cardigan or a stylish shawl that matches your outfit. This way, you'll stay warm without sacrificing your impeccable style.

Remember, weddings are all about celebrating love and joy, so have fun with your outfit choices! Whether you're rocking floral prints, bold colours, or classic blues, the most important thing is to feel confident and comfortable in what you wear. So go ahead, RSVP with enthusiasm, and show up looking fabulous – because summer wedding season waits for no one!
