What to Wear: Summer Wedding Edition
By Stephanie Costa
This summer’s wedding invites are spread out on your dresser. You’re staring blankly into your closet, wondering what you could possibly wear. There’s your BFF’s black tie nuptials, your co-worker’s daytime soiree, and let’s not forget your cousin’s intimate garden party. It’s enough to drive a fashionista crazy!
This wedding season, GalTime’s got you covered! With a splash of color, and flowy, light fabrics, you’re guaranteed to look cool, stay cool, and celebrate in style. Bridal styling expert Lacy Pool shows us how.
What to wear to a daytime wedding:
Summer daytime weddings are always influenced by the warm weather, no matter the venue! Fabric and fit will be key.
Look for shorter dresses with a more forgiving skirt shape in breathable fabrics, such as cotton or Dupioni silk.
Keep the neckline open, preferably with straps. Strapless is acceptable, but consider wearing your hair down. An updo may look over-the-top.

Lightly colored prints are perfect. If you start to sweat, it will be less noticeable! Keep the accessories simple, and avoid heavy sparkle. Dress as if you are headed to a lunch date with your significant other.
If you feel you’re wearing too many accessories, you probably are. Simple earrings, a bracelet and some wedge heels are just right! (Plus, you won’t sink into the grass if the festivities are outdoors!)
