How to Pick the Perfect Dress for a Summer Wedding•
Posted on May 26 2016
It's summertime, which means your Facebook feed is about to be—if it already hasn't been—absolutely flooded with pictures of proposals and engagement rings and blushing and gushing couples: a.k.a. it's "wedding season." We at Mulberry Muse are here to help you pick out the perfect dress for this wedding season!
What To Wear:
Summer colors (e.g. cobalt blue, exotic orange, sunny yellow, candy apple red, crisp white, seaworthy coral, tropical pink, Kelly green, etc.)
Pumps or sandals for an indoors wedding/reception
Wedges or flats for an outdoors wedding/reception
Something sexy but tasteful (like a sundress for a morning/afternoon ceremony and a cocktail dress in the evening)
What NOT To Wear:
White (for obvious reasons)
Black (unless it's with a pop of color for an evening venue)
Heels for an outdoors wedding/reception (trust me—your heels will be determined to get stuck in the grass and mud)
A revealing, low-cut dress (remember, sexy but tasteful)
Want more helpful tips?
No matter how intimate or quaint the ceremony is, typical summer attire, like tanks and shorts, is just not appropriate.
A metallic pair of pumps or sandals complements any colorful summer dress, and for more nature-toned dresses, put on nude- or blush-colored shoes.
Bring a small clutch or wristlet so that you can carry a little bit of powder (to freshen up your makeup in the summer heat) and some lip gloss (to keep your lips looking nice and hydrated).
