The sun-kissed months of summer bring an aura of romance and fun, making it the perfect time for a dreamy wedding. From beautiful outdoor settings to perfect weather, summer weddings make for the perfect party.
One of the best parts of a summer wedding is being in a beautiful setting. It’s the perfect chance to celebrate on a beach, a garden, or vineyard, all idyllic for exchanging vows. Each warm, outdoor venue creates the perfect backdrop for even more perfect wedding photos.
Which leads us to your bridesmaid dresses. The biggest rule: dress for a summer wedding in something that resonates with the season's easy elegance. Breezy fabrics like chiffon, organza, or lightweight lace take center stage, ensuring comfort without compromising on style. Flowing dresses for the bride and light-colored suits for the groom and groomsmen exude a relaxed yet sophisticated vibe perfectly suited for the season. And for the bridesmaids? Bright and light colors. Browse our guide below and see the shades you should be wearing.
Green, the color of nature and renewal, thrives during the summer months. Use lush greenery as the main color or as an accent to add freshness to your wedding decor. Incorporate it in bouquets, centerpieces, or even in the venue's natural surroundings for an organic feel. Choose our Lydia dress in Sage for a beautiful, light summery take.
Romantic Blush Pink
Soft and romantic, blush pink embodies the delicate beauty of summer blossoms. It's a versatile color that complements various skin tones and pairs elegantly with other shades like gold or ivory. From bridesmaid dresses to floral accents, this color brings a touch of timeless romance to your celebration. Our Grace dress in Blush Pink is perfect for a garden party or wedding at a vineyard.
Coral is a bold, energetic hue that perfectly captures the vibrancy of summer. Its warmth and liveliness make it an ideal choice for a summer wedding color scheme. Incorporate coral in table settings, bouquets, or even in the groomsmen's attire to infuse your celebration with energy and zest. Try our Laurie empire dress in a floral coral print for a bright touch.
