WORDS: Madeline Chesnut
Tis the season for pastel colours and talks of love. As the summer days roll by, your mail boxes are probably filling with wedding invitations. Whether you are the bride, a bridesmaid, or an attending guest, wedding season proposes wardrobe challenges for all who are involved in the special day, and figuring out what to wear can sometimes be a burden. To lift some of the burden off of your sun-kissed shoulders, I have created vignettes for what to wear to a summer wedding.
The bride is the star of the show on her wedding day and choosing the perfect wedding dress is in the running for the most important wardrobe decision that a woman will ever make.
A traditional white dress with clean lines will always be in style as it is feminine, polished, and looks beautiful coming down the aisle. This two pieced dress by Czech designer Zuzana Veselá is a great option for practical brides because it has a detachable skirt. The silhouette looks flawless together, but can easily be transformed with a shorter skirt for a bride who wants to dance the night away at her reception.
If white isn’t your thing, this grey, silk dress by Zuzana Veselá, with a subtle stripe, is perfect for your wedding. Paired it with Belgravia stone suede pumps and an Apm Monaco cuff makes for a chic, fashion-forward look.
Many brides choose to celebrate their day on a beautiful sandy beach with the background noise of waves crashing against the shore. This short wrap dress, paired with Pedro Garcia sandals is perfect for a sandy setting.
Every bride needs her bridesmaids. They are the glue that holds the special day together and they accentuate the bride. The bridesmaid kit helps you put together a beautifully harmonious look that will tie everything together.
Soft peach is all the rave in the wedding world for an accent color. Match a simple, yet flattering dress by Zuzana Veselá with Kendra Scott earrings, a bangle by Kate Spade New York, a fun hair accessory, Dune London heels, and matching coin purses as a present for your lovely ladies.
The Flower Girl
Flower girls add the sweetest touch to a wedding ceremony with their cuteness overload. Let the little girl shine in a child’s size of Zuzana Velesá’s bridesmaid dress along with adorable flats from Selfridges and a dainty pearl bracelet from Little Girl’s Pears (the name is just as adorable as the bracelet).
Skimming through your closet looking for what to wear to a wedding can take ages. There are so many unspoken rules and finding the appropriate get-up can be stressful. Let me help you out by showing what I think is best to wear as a guest.
Don’t be afraid to bring a pop of color to the wedding! I am in love with this vibrant cocktail dress by Zuzana Veselá. Throw it on with an Olivia Burton watch, a Micheal Kors clutch, red Aquazzura pumps, and Greener Grass Design earrings for a look that will transition flawlessly into the reception.
This breezy layered dress screams wedding with its pastel colors and soft appeal. Pair it with fun pumps by Aspinal of London and a wrist full of bangles.
The final look is perfect for any summer wedding. This Zuzana Veselá dress is sure to keep you feeling comfortable and put together. The addition of a Dian Von Furstenburg clutch, Dune sandals, and Erickson Beamon earrings is sure to complete the look.
