What to Wear: Summer Wedding – Classic

plus size wedding guest outfit idea

Today, I’m continuing my summer wedding series with the classic wedding.  Although many couples opt for an outdoor wedding during the warmer months, classic weddings held in churches, hotels or halls are still quite popular in the summer.  Since these types of weddings can be held in the late morning, afternoon or evening, putting together an appropriate outfit might be a little daunting.

A cocktail dress, like the one I’m wearing here, is always a great option for a classic wedding.  It’s dressy without being overly formal and can easily be styled with simple accessories and a great pair of pumps for a fun yet sophisticated look.

I hope this is helpful and thanks for reading.

    Love this wedding series. I have a wedding at the end of the month and I haven't been able to find anything I really like yet. It's black tie at a castle in NY so I'm freaking out hoping I find something I really love.

    I'm glad you love it. Also, at the end of the week, I'll be putting together about 30-50 dresses for all types of weddings, including black tie, so hopefully that will help you in your search.
