what to wear to a summer wedding

Happy Friday! I’ve gotten lots of requests to do a post about what to wear to a summer wedding, so today I’m sharing lots of options for that! Summer weddings can be tricky because some summer dresses are too casual, but you also have to keep in mind the temperature (especially my Dallas girls!). It’s also tough too because weddings can get expensive between getting a gift, maybe buying flights or booking a hotel for it, etc., so I definitely kept budget in mind- everything in this post is under $100! I’m sharing tons of dress (and jumpsuit!) options with you that I think would work well for a summer wedding, and some of them are even under $50!

Click on any dress in the collage below to shop my picks!


A few callouts from the collage above:

  • Ruffle Cold Shoulder Dress – Seriously love this one! This is one of those dresses that works for everything from a summer wedding to date night to a bridal shower, etc. The ruffle trim is so feminine and florals are just perfect for spring and summer! So flattering on everyone and the cold shoulder is a fun way to show off a summer tan!
  • Off the Shoulder Maxi Dress – Y’all, I want this dress in every pattern. I’m a firm believer that every girl should have at least one good maxi dress in their closet. They’re great for summer weddings, but also work so well for vacations or having by the pool. There’s something just so fun and summery about a maxi dress! And this one is under $50, but I love that you can totally dress it up for a wedding.
  • Lace Midi Dress – This dress is just beautiful and the midi length combined with the lace makes it elegant enough for an evening wedding or more fancy affair. The fit is SO flattering and I love that it comes in seven (!!) colors. This is one of those dresses that you can wear to everything and you’ll find yourself reaching for it all the time. So classic and feminine!

So if you’re at that stage of life where it feels like your calendar is jam packed with wedding after wedding (and the showers that follow suit!), hopefully this post helps you with your shopping. I think a lot of these dresses are so versatile that you can wear them for all sorts of occasions and really get your wear out of them. Summer weddings are so fun and it’s just such a great excuse to get dressed up and have a fun night out! Do y’all have any weddings this weekend or any other fun plans? Let me know in the comments below!
