What To Wear: Summer Weddings

Since I'm attending quite a few weddings this summer, I thought it would be a good idea to write a blog post helping people decide what to wear to weddings. 

First of all, don't wear white! Although some people are starting to warm up to the idea of wedding guests wearing white, I strongly believe you should NEVER do this. It's not your day, and you don't want to seem like you're competing with the bride. Surely, you can find another dress to wear in a different color! You can definitely wear lighter colors, like light pink or peach for example, but stay away from cream, white, and ivory. 

It's summer, so embrace the fact that bright colors look great in the summer! It's a happy and beautiful occasion, what better way to show appreciation than wearing a bright color! To me, the idea of a woman wearing black to a wedding doesn't seem like they're too happy. Leave black for the funerals, this is a beautiful time in the bride and grooms life, and black just seems like too depressing of a color. 

When it comes to shoes, I think you can go with either heels or a cute pair of flat sandals. If you're worried about your feet hurting in heels, and don't like the idea of going barefoot on the dance floor, be sure to bring a pair of flat shoes. However, most women usually go barefoot by the end of the night to keep their feet from killing the next day, so don't be afraid to let loose without shoes!
