Is there anything more fun than being a guest at a wedding? No obligations, expectations, or rules are really set for you. All you need to do is show up, congratulate the bride and groom, control your alcohol intake, don't wear white and up-stage the bride, and have a great time.
There is nothing I love more than a summer wedding outside - they're warm, you don't have to worry about freezing to death, and you can wear some bright colors and crazy patterns. Here are three trends I have been loving lately and think would be perfect to wear this year for any spring and summer weddings you might be attending.
It's a bit harder to rock a colorful floral print dress in December, don't you think so? Not saying it's impossible, it's just more practical for this time of year. I love wearing prints at weddings because they're always a conversation starter, but doesn't take away from the bride on her day. Go with anything bright and colorful - polka dots, paint splatters, ikat, floral - whatever makes you comfortable!
Always a staple, if you want to look a bit more polished and black-tie, lace is a great option. It's traditional, and can be worn in the short or long variety depending on your comfort zone and where the wedding is located. I personally love a cocktail length lace dress because not only can you wear to a wedding, but also to the ballet, theatre, and other formal summer events.
I absolutely adore the look of a long maxi dress at a wedding. It screams Grecian goddess and looks beautiful on every body type and height. Again, if you want to wear a print or a solid is completely your choice, and I think there is a time and place for each. A printed maxi would be perfect for a more casual beach or outdoor wedding, and a traditional solid maxi dress can be worn to galas, black-tie events, and traditional formal weddings.
