Wedding Outfits for Any Type of Wedding
Your summer calendar is packed with weddings, but your budget isn’t made for the strain of so many events. Shop secondhand and you can attend them all! Use these easy guidelines to get the perfect wedding outfits for every event without ever donning the same one twice.
1. City Wedding
For a wedding in the city, you want to look as chic and sophisticated as your surroundings. Go for a flattering cocktail dress with a little extra oomph in the form of fun embellishments or eye-grabbing glitter. A shimmery finish, lacy trim, or bejeweled neckline is just the thing. Complete your wedding attire with a small clutch, sleek heels, and a bold piece of statement jewelry.
2. Rustic Wedding
If the wedding invitations have a wood grain background and the venue is a rehabbed barn, you’re headed to a rustic wedding. Match the timeless feel of the event with a vintage dress in a fresh and flirty floral. Short sleeves and a skirt that falls somewhere between the knees and ankles is most appropriate for your wedding guest outfit here. Pair your dress with semi-casual shoes that can stand up to the outdoor setting and keep your accessories simple and understated for this event.
3. Black-Tie Wedding
A black-tie wedding makes things easy for men wondering what to wear to a wedding. Ladies have a harder time matching their attire to this theme. You need to go formal, but you can stop short of a ball gown. Less is more in this setting. Look for a simple formal dress in classic lines and flowing fabrics. Added length will help you avoid the cocktail dress look. Opt for formal heels, an understated clutch, and pearls or a few diamonds if you have them.
4. Boho Wedding
Boho weddings are among the easiest to dress for. If the bride is skipping down the aisle with flowers in her hair and the guests are reclining under fairy lights at a wooded reception venue, you can comfortably dress down. A maxi dress or even a semi-formal jumper will do nicely. Pile on the accessories to suit your own bohemian vibes. Sandals or simple flats can take the place of heels at this wedding.
5. Beach Wedding
What’s better than a wedding that combines sun, sand, and a little love? If you’re headed to a beach wedding, a charming sundress is your best pick. Keep comfort in mind for any event where you’ll be standing seaside in something other than a bikini. Strappy dresses and shorter hemlines are fine. Keep the turf in mind as you choose your shoes and pick flat sandals over heels, which will just sink in the sand. Slip a tropical flower in your hair and you’re ready to go.
With gently loved finds available for as much as 90% off retail, you can get the wedding outfits you need with plenty leftover for the wedding gift. Get ready for an unforgettable summer of love.
