Summer Wedding Dresses for Every Style

Posted by Kim on Jun 06, 2013

If you’re getting married in the summer you’ve probably heard this mantra when it comes to choosing your gown: Pick a lightweight style so you’ll stay comfortable in the heat. We wholeheartedly agree with this premise, however, that doesn’t mean that you have to wear a dress that’s fit for the beach (although it’s certainly appropriate!); there are lots of gown styles that are summery and airy, whether you’re looking for something grand, romantic, or modern.

Beachy: Flowy, Grecian-inspired styles like this gown by David’s Bridal are perfect for beach weddings. A bit of sparkle is also appropriate, but don’t go overboard with the heavy beading.

Classic: If you’re hosting a formal wedding in the summertime, by all means wear a classic ballgown or A-line style, like this Amsale creation. Just choose a fabric that’s relatively lightweight, like organza or tulle.

Short: Obviously, short wedding dresses are made for summer weddings – we particularly love styles with touches of feminine lace, like this dress by Ivy & Aster. Jazz things up with a fun pair of shoes.

Romantic: Lace and ruffled chiffon wedding dresses are perfect for outdoor weddings in the summertime. This style, by Jenny Lee, has a garden fairy vibe that we just adore.
