The Dreaded Outdoor Summer Wedding

The heat is creeping up in DC today! That, along with our epic humidity, makes me want to sit around in a bathing suit 24/7. And yet, some people are still choosing to have outdoor weddings in the coming months! So what to wear when you have to look nice and melt at the same time? I created three ensembles, depending on how formal the affair is to help inspire you!

The Outdoor Wedding
First up if the easiest - a casual, outdoor wedding in the summer heat. With a cute summer top and airy skirt, you easily beat the heat! Add some low wedges and chic woven accessories for a great look!

Next is that semi-formal vague place. I usually err on the side of more formal, even for outdoors! I found a beautiful lace shift dress and paired with a bright clutch and cardigan that looks almost like a boucle blazer. Some gold sandal wedges and chic jewelry complete your look!

I almost didn't include a formal look, but decided you never know! Perhaps a fancy smancy rooftop or evening garden wedding? I actually couldn't believe this gorge cocktail dress was cotton, but it's the truth! Add on a sequined tux blazer, and the fanciest wedge heels I could find and you'll look ready to dance the night away, even if it's 105 degrees!
