7 Summer Wedding-Guest Outfits I'd Instantly Notice

Deciding what to wear to a wedding is difficult enough, but a summer wedding requires even more consideration. While you can't bank on sunny skies for the big day, if recent weather is anything to go by, you can assume it's going to be a muggy affair. So to strike the perfect balance, you need to be sure of a few things: your ensemble won't make you overheat, it feels comfortable to spend the day in and it still feels fancy enough for a special occasion.

Ticking all these boxes is no small feat, but we've cracked it with a bit of help from some of our stylish friends. Scroll on to see seven chic suggestions for what to wear to a wedding during summer.


What to Wear to a Summer Wedding: @ITSMEKELLIEB wears a blue satin dress with a gold chain necklace and hoop earrings



Style Notes: Cool on the skin, silk makes for an ideal fabric choice for summer weddings. In her follow-up video post, Kellie Brown styles her 11 Honoré dress with a pair of leopard mules. Perfection. 

What to Wear to a Summer Wedding: @MONIKH wears an organza floral dress with red strappy sandals



Style Notes: Sheer fabrics also make for a dreamy wedding-guest outfit. We love the addition of puff sleeves and a full skirt, which Monikh Dale expertly balances out with a pair of strappy sandals. 


Style Notes: Embellished skirts shouldn't be reserved for party season. Instead, give them a summertime wedding spin with a breezy shirt tucked in. 

Style Notes: Summer gives you the opportunity to be more frivolous with your print choices, and nothing will make you stand out at a big event more than a playful motif. Polka dots are always a great option. 


What to Wear to a Summer Wedding: @SMYTHSISTERS wears a yellow dress with a subtle cut-out to the side



Style Notes: This summer cutouts have become very classy, with subtle exposures adorning dresses in unassuming places. One of the Who What Wear team members wore this Aje dress to a wedding recently, and it looked incredible. 


What to Wear to a Summer Wedding: @GRECEGHANEM wears a teal halter neck with a pair of white retro sunglasses



Style Notes: This year marks the return of the halterneck and what better time to wear one than a summer soirée? We suggest styling yours with pastel accessories just like Grece Ghanem did. 

Style Notes: If dresses just aren't your thing, trouser suits loan themselves perfectly to weddings. For summer, keep your silhouette loose to ensure you don't get too hot. Pair your suit with a silky camisole underneath—this will make for a sleek top option should you need or want to shed your blazer.
