Warmer weather, pretty blooms, and vibrant color palettes—there’s a lot to look forward to when it comes to summer weddings. And as a summer wedding guest, selecting the perfect wedding day outfit is important. From the formality to the color, there are many moving parts that can make this process feel overwhelming. To save you from all the stress and confusion, we have compiled a list of our favorite summer wedding guest outfits, perfect for all summer wedding events that will have you looking stylish while beating the heat. 

Before diving into our inspiration, here are a few tips for selecting the perfect summer wedding guest outfit:

  • From the ceremony to the reception—comfort is key. Make sure your outfit is stylish and comfortable as well
  • Keep in mind the ceremony style and location when selecting your outfit and accessories. For example, you wouldn’t want to show up to a beach wedding with a jacket but you might want to bring that extra layer if the ceremony is taking place in an air-conditioned building
  • Pick an outfit you feel confident in, a wedding is a fun and photo-filled day
  • Stick with a color palette that compliments the wedding theme. Use the invitation as your guide

The options are endless when it comes to finding the perfect wedding guest outfit. By keeping these tips in mind during your shopping experience, you’ll be sure to find outfits that are stylish, and comfortable enough to beat the heat.

Junebug Reminder: Do you know what happens in the summer? It gets hot. And this often results in the selection of a sleeveless, strappy, or backless outfit. And when that happens, you’ll most likely need a bra alternative to keep you looking seamless and elegant. Check out our favorite nipple covers we’ve tried to date–Lollipetals. They are the perfect pasty,  made of thin, high-quality silicone that sits discreetly underneath any top or dress, while still remaining in place all night. No matter how hot and sweaty the evening may get.
