How To Dress for a Summer Wedding: Garden Edition

It has been great to see more and more couples choosing to have their summer wedding outdoors. Not only does a garden provide a beautiful setting for a beautiful day, but from a style perspective, it lends itself to a little more casual and relaxed approach to getting dressed up. Here’s a look that offers some inspiration on what to wear to a summer garden wedding.

If you’re going to be attending an outdoor summer wedding, choosing a lightweight garment is important. Depending on the location and forecast, temperatures could easily top 90-degrees, making it very uncomfortable to be in a heavier fabric.

A linen suit is a solid choice, though a lightweight cotton suit, like the one I’m wearing, also works really well if you’d prefer to save the linen suit for another summer wedding on the beach.

However, even if I planned to save my linen suit for another time, if it was going to be a hot afternoon or early evening, I wouldn’t be found without a linen shirt. This one has been a favorite recently. After the ceremony, you could easily lose the jacket, roll up the sleeves, take of the bow tie, and unbutton your collar to stay cool, casual and stylish.

I have been a big fan of flower lapel pins this season and for a garden wedding, especially, it is the perfect accessory.
