A Frock of Every Color | A Summer Wedding Guest Dress Guide

The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, peonies are blooming and the warm weather is here to stay (or at least for a little while). It only means one thing: wedding season. Now, it is true that people get married throughout the entire year but it almost goes without saying that Spring and Summer are popular months to tie the knot. For those of you who are not the bride-to-be or a member of the wedding party, trying to choose the perfect dress as an attendee can be tricky. You want to wear something that is appropriate etiquette-wise but aligns well with the season. Additionally, one must also consider the type of wedding and you need to ask yourself: is it cocktail, casual or formal? Are the nuptials during the day or is it an evening affair? What will the setting be? Dockside? At a beach? In an old mansion? At a museum? Is it a casual backyard gathering? Once you’ve considered these factors, you can then determine what will suit you best! If you’re like me, picking the right dress can be tough but the great thing about Spring/Summer weddings is that donning bright colors is totally acceptable. So what’s your hue? Are you a green kind of gal or are you going to rock Pantone’s color of the year, Radiant Orchid? Below are some beautiful frocks that I’ve come across that are perfect for a wedding this season (with a shopping guide to go with it, of course). Enjoy!
