With wedding season in full swing, the excitement of celebrating love and witnessing beautiful unions is palpable. However, when the scorching sun unleashes its relentless rays during a heatwave, finding the perfect wedding guest outfit that balances style and comfort becomes paramount. Fear not, for we have your back as we navigate the sizzling summer days with a touch of fashion-forward flair.

As temperatures rise, it’s time to embrace modern silhouettes that exude a sense of breezy elegance while infusing a playful spirit into the occasion. Slip dresses, reminiscent of the iconic chic of 90s wedding guests, effortlessly glide over the body, offering a light and airy feel that is both stylish and comfortable.

But let’s not forget those extra special moments when the party kicks into high gear. For such occasions, dresses with a trail come to the rescue, ensuring you make a grand entrance and leave a lasting impression. Whether it’s a romantic garden setting or an elegant seaside affair, these trailing gowns add a touch of drama and sophistication while allowing you to enjoy the festivities without compromising on style.


And what better way to make a stylish statement at a summer wedding on a scorching hot day than with one of the most fashionable summer 2024 dresses – a short satin halter neck dress in a vibrant raspberry red hue?

I bought mine at That Orginal. Well, actually, I had it made just for me. Their innovative platform allows you to customize various elements of your dress, ensuring it perfectly aligns with your personal taste and style preferences. I ordered a short Tina dress with no sleeves that can be worn in more than three different ways.

A That Original Tina dress (get yours here – and use code veronika50 for 50 EUR off your purchase) is a true showstopper, boasting a flattering halter neck design, it beautifully frames the shoulders and highlights your feminine allure.

The raspberry red hue (one of the three most popular summer 2024 wedding guest colours) adds a pop of boldness and excitement, ensuring you radiate confidence and magnetism as you celebrate the couple’s special day.

Complementing the dress, the Stuart Weitzman metallic nudist song sandals bring a touch of glamour and sophistication to your outfit.

And more, but then I have to dance on my own as everyone else falls down hours before me.


While white tie events are supposed to be held indoors (pov a white tie garden wedding with a proper gown, gloves and closed toe shoes during a heatwave would be bizarre), the chances you get invited to a garden a white tie wedding during a heatwave are quite high for summer 2024. All in all, the “quiet luxury white tie garden weddings” are very popular among the new money who wants to have a classy wedding this summer.

However, attending such an event under the blazing sun requires a strategic approach to your outfit choice, ensuring you stay cool while exuding timeless glamour.

Point of view, you are unlikely to see any wedding guest wearing opera gloves and closed toe heels on a white tie garden wedding during a heatwave. Those who know, know the bride and groom didn’t know white tie is not appropriate for daytime garden wedding during a heatwave, and those who don’t, don’t know how to dress for a white tie event anyway.

Nevertheless, gowns are still very appropriate for the event. Even the silver ones.

As for footwear, you can go for the Stuart Weitzman metallic nudist song sandals. Trust me, everyone will wear sandals.

The scorching sun casts its radiant glow upon the venue, creating an ambiance that demands an outfit designed to conquer the hot weather. In this scenario, the That Original short satin Tina dress (Ps. make sure you choose the Tina collection in the dress generator on the site if you want to create the same dress as I did) in a captivating raspberry red hue becomes your go-to choice, ensuring you radiate confidence and style.

As you slip into the lightweight satin fabric of the Tina dress, its vibrant color captures the essence of summer, evoking a sense of passion and energy. The short length allows for comfortable movement, while the silhouette gently grazes your skin, allowing the warm breeze to offer respite from the heat.

Amidst the excitement of the moment, a church wedding beckons with its own unique dress code – morning dress. It calls for an attire that embodies both modesty and elegance, paying homage to the solemnity of the ceremony and showcasing reverence for the sacred space. As you enter the grandeur of the church, taking your seat in the pews, you will want to don something truly classy and warm, befitting the occasion.

Churches are much cooler than wedding venues and the outside temperature. It’s important to dress appropriately for this cold sacred setting, ensuring your outfit exudes a balance of sophistication and modesty. While dress codes may vary depending on the specific church, it’s always wise to lean towards conservative choices that embrace a refined and timeless style.

However, there’s an exception to this rule when it comes to British church weddings, particularly those attended by the old money elite. British are tacky or at very least, lean towards extravagance. Embracing the occasion’s grandeur, you’ll want to dress the part, complementing the luxurious setting and going for a full morning dress.

But let us first check what to wear for a classy European wedding this summer. 


Daytime elegance comes assured with a pastel pink short sleeve dress and high heel pumps that add a special touch that doesn’t feel overdone. For that pop of something exquisite, why not add a pair of Casadei blade pumps?

My Red Valentino short sleeve dress is both feminine and classy, with a dropped waist that creates an old money silhouette. Paired with the Casadei blade pumps, the outfit takes on a modern and sophisticated edge, that is still perfect for a church setting. And the addition of embroidery on the collar or a bow tie (pov my dress is sold out, but I found a similar dress with a bow tie – same brand, same hue and same cut, but with a bow – see the gallery below) provides a touch of elegance that perfectly complements the outfit, without feeling excessive or overbearing. Btw I also added 6DEN socks – they are a must for a daytime formal summer wedding.


As you make your way towards the charming countryside church, a sense of excitement and anticipation fills the air. A summer church wedding is a truly enchanting occasion, filled with timeless traditions, breathtaking beauty, and an abundance of love.

Upon stepping inside the church, the sweet fragrance of fresh flowers embraces you, while the gentle strains of soft music create an atmosphere of serenity. The intimate setting is bathed in a cascade of sunlight, filtering through the stained glass windows, casting vibrant hues that dance upon the walls, creating a mesmerizing spectacle.

As the bride and groom stand before the altar, exchanging heartfelt vows, you can feel the profound emotions that permeate the room. Tears of joy flow freely down the cheeks of wedding guests, moved by the power of this beautiful moment. The bride exudes radiant elegance in her white gown, and the groom stands resplendent in his impeccably tailored suit, their love illuminating the church.

And you, dressed in a delicate blue lace dress, radiate an aura of poise and grace. The high neckline and knee-length design offer just the right balance of sophistication and modesty, perfectly suited for a church wedding. Paired with the Gianvito Rossi pumps, your outfit embraces a modern edge, infusing a touch of glamour and style.

The Gianvito Rossi pumps not only add a dash of elegance but are also exceptionally comfortable – pov they are the most comfortable pumps to wear to a wedding in summer, no cap. Designed to ensure a secure fit, they provide the freedom to dance and revel in the festivities without a hint of discomfort. They are truly the ideal choice for a daytime formal summer wedding, allowing you to enjoy every moment with carefree bliss.


While the timeless charm of a traditional church wedding adorned with delicate white florals, and abundant greenery remains the prevailing theme in Europe, the dress code for an old money British church wedding takes a more audacious turn.

When it comes to weddings set amidst the splendid British countryside, subtlety is left by the wayside. Embrace a style that exudes vibrancy, flamboyance, and sheer audacity. A proper morning dress – a short-sleeved jacket and matching skirt cinched by a belt or a belted midi dress (Ps. you will love the dress I found for you so much – I will buy it too), becomes the hallmark attire completed by a striking fascinator, summer gloves, and closed-toe shoes.

Radiate positive energy and befittingly celebrate the joyous couple by enveloping yourself in a resplendent array of pastel blue. From the sacred ceremony at the church to the luncheon reception, a midi blue dress adorned with a matching belt and a lavish hat ensures an impeccable choice for an opulent British wedding among the upper echelons this summer.

By the way, you can find a few more fashionable summer fascinators and summer wedding hats in the hat trend report. Check it out!


Overflowing with irresistible charm and playful allure, this glamorous summer wedding guest outfit for a delightful summer wedding at a church exudes an exuberant and jubilant vibe. Prepare to make a striking impression as you embrace a palette bursting with the most daring and delectable shades of candied pink.

Whether you find yourself in the midst of the grand ceremony or reveling at the lively reception, this outfit is a perfect match. It embodies the carefree spirit of the occasion while staying true to the flamboyant British old money. Prepare to captivate hearts and turn heads as you radiate confidence and joy in this fancy summer wedding guest attire.


If the dress code for a summer wedding demands the utmost formality with a white tie evening affair, it’s time to pull out all the stops and embrace the elegance of a proper summer gown.

Prepare to captivate all with these stunning white tie summer wedding guest outfits I put together for you (pov not just you, I wore them IRL) that will leave a lasting impression. Featuring intricately worked lace and deep, silver hues, these dresses set the stage for an unforgettable night. To elevate the attire with a touch of old châlet glamour, consider adorning your outfit with a tiara headband.

Ps. It’s important to note that if you are a bachelorette, it should be a headband rather than a tiara. Traditionally, proper tiaras are reserved for married women, adding an extra touch of regality to their attire.

No matter the occasion, a headband featuring a floral rosette should be your top choice this summer. It is the most fashionable hair accessory of summer 2024, adding a delightful touch of glamour and elegance to your outfit.

Unlike a proper tiara, which can sometimes be heavy and challenging to wear for extended periods, a floral headband is a lightweight and comfortable alternative that allows you to effortlessly enjoy your entire evening without any discomfort.


Imagine this scene: you enter the magnificent ballroom, and atop your head sits a black floral headband, bestowing a regal air to your appearance. The soft glow of chandeliers casts a warm light, illuminating the grandeur of the room. The air is alive with the buzz of conversation as anticipation builds. Your eyes are drawn to the bride, resplendent in her stunning gown, but your own attire is equally captivating – a silver summer gown from Self Portrait. Rest assured, it is dark enough to avoid any confusion with the bride. Additionally, the black headband and black clutch you wear further distinguishes your look.

The intricate floral detailing of your gown adds a level of sophistication to its full-length silhouette. Paired with silver pumps and long opera gloves, your white tie outfit exudes a luxurious charm, effortlessly catching the eyes of those around you.

As you find your seat and await the start of the ceremony, you will feel the electric atmosphere in the air. Your heart will swell with emotion, knowing that you are the best dressed wedding guest. However, you keep in mind that today is the bride’s day and aim not to outshine her. Your stunning outfit, while undoubtedly glamorous, is meant to enhance the overall ambiance of this white-tie summer wedding.

Ps. When shopping for this gorgeous gown, you might want considering sizing up. Size UK 4 fit me flawlessly (I’m 73 (with a pushup)-52 (after the wedding cake)-74). However, it’s important to note that your regular size may run a bit small, especially if you have a fuller cup size. Remember, what fits me perfectly might feel a bit snug on you.

Interestingly, I noticed a discrepancy with the Farfetch model (the dress is linked to Farfetch in the gallery below – I think I bought it there too) who supposedly wears a size UK 4. Although her body shape differs from mine, the dress doesn’t appear tight around her bust and waist. However, it does seem slightly shorter on her, although it fits impeccably at the waist. It’s possible that there may have been an error in the provided product information. It’s worth mentioning that she (the Farfetch model) wears all the other Self Portrait dresses in size UK 8 (I double-checked!). Based on this observation, I recommend consulting the size guide for peace of mind before making your summer gown purchase, ensuring the perfect fit for the wedding.


Pastel dresses remain pitch-perfect for white tie weddings. Extravagant guipure lace and sliver opera gloves are designed for evening white tie ceremonies whereas off the shoulder shoulettes and bedazzled styles are made to shine at black tie weddings this summer.


Adorned in this navy blue long sheer lace dress by Self Portrait that can be worn as an off the shoulder dress as well, you will exude an air of enchantment and elegance. The dress features delicate tulle short sleeves, a flattering bustier, and a sheer lace skirt that gracefully trails behind you as you glide across the venue.

The intricate guipure lace of the dress adds an exquisite touch, showcasing the artistry and craftsmanship that elevates your look to new heights. The sheer elements of the design create an alluring sense of mystery, leaving a trail of intrigue in your wake. Paired with Gianvito Rossi blue satin pumps, you are adorned with luxurious comfort, adding a touch of sophistication to your every step.

To complete your outfit, you can put on a tiara headband. It will harmonize perfectly with the romantic allure of the navy blue lace, creating a captivating contrast that draws attention to your radiant presence.


While a little black dress is not appropriate for a summer wedding held during the day, it is acceptable to impress in a little black tulle dress and sandals for a black tie evening wedding.

So step into sandals and dance the night away.

Although sandals may not be considered traditional black-tie footwear, they can certainly be a stylish and comfortable choice for a summer celebration.

As you slip into the elegant and enchanting midi tulle black Self Portrait dress, you will feel like a Barbie princess. The black tulle fabric dances around your legs, creating an ethereal silhouette that exudes grace and allure.

And the layers of tulle create a play of textures and volumes as they intertwine and overlap, forming a whimsical harmony of movement. The fabric ripples and flows, creating a mesmerizing visual symphony that mirrors the joy and excitement of the occasion.

To complete your black summer wedding guest outfit, opt for metallic sandals that add a touch of shimmer and glamour. My go to are Stuart Weitzman nudist song sandals. While they may deviate slightly from traditional black-tie expectations, they are a chic and practical choice for a summer wedding. These sandals allow you to dance the night away with effortless grace. Btw I want half of my size up – I always buy sandals in IT36.5 and pumps in IT36.


But you might want to take a fresh approach to a black tie summer wedding with a more AW23/24 choice of silhouettes. Step into the realm of timeless elegance with a choice that exudes old money allure. From the formal welcome drinks the night before to dancing until dawn, you can stun the crowd in an off-the-shoulder top paired with a long skirt adorned with rockstuds.

Point of view, full long skirts are the most fashionable skirts for AW23 – right on time for when the newlyweds start showing around their wedding photo album.


Embrace the beauty of the blooming flowers at the summer garden wedding by donning equally captivating shades. From the soft blush of rose pink to the timeless elegance of blue forget-me-nots, become a romantic vision in lace or flowing floor-sweeping lengths adorned with delightful floral prints.

These summer garden wedding outfits effortlessly capture a balance between femininity and contemporary style. They are the top picks for the best-dressed wedding guests, showcasing a refined sense of fashion and an appreciation for the enchanting ambiance of the garden setting. When it comes to selecting your outfit, you can choose between delicate swirls of floral print or the intricate allure of lace.

With the delicate swirls of floral print, you embody the essence of the garden, mirroring the vibrant colors and delicate petals that surround you. The print exudes a sense of freshness and vitality, creating an eye-catching ensemble that captures the spirit of summer.

Alternatively, the intricate allure of lace offers a timeless and sophisticated option. Whether in soft pastels or classic whites, lace adds an element of elegance and grace to your attire. It weaves a tale of romance and enchantment, reflecting the inherent beauty of the garden setting.

Whichever outfit you choose, you will leave a lasting impression. Showcasing your impeccable taste, while harmonizing with the romantic atmosphere of the occasion.


Embrace the celebration of your dearest girlie’s most important moment with a fashionable skirt that exudes extraordinary details. Indulge in the sensation of feminine shapes and exquisite floral patterns that are sure to make a statement. Complete the look with a matching headband, a chic crop top (shop for mine by clicking on the top in the collage below, or get that stunning top from the productgallery that follows), and playful Aquazzura sandals for a touch of whimsy.

With a skirt like mine, you’ll radiate an undeniable charm and elegance that perfectly complements the joyous occasion. Every twirl and step will showcase the intricate details and feminine allure, making you the center of attention and capturing the looks of those around you.

Pair the skirt with a matching headband to add a touch of cohesion and create a harmonious look that ties everything together. Pov a headband is a delightful accessory, enhancing your hairstyle and accentuating your overall beauty.

A crop top, chosen thoughtfully to complement the skirt, will add an alluring twist to the look. Moreover, it will create a balanced and eye-catching silhouette.


Floral print is a perfect complement to the gorgeous blooms at a summer garden wedding. Whether you opt for a short slip floral dress or a short buster silk dress like I did, you will be a beautiful vision in this design.

Paired with metallic sandals, this is the garden wedding guest summer outfit that brings the wow factor.


Now two fashionable summer wedding guest outfits perfectly suited for the most popular summer wedding theme of 2024—the Woodland Fairy Wedding. This whimsical and enchanting theme draws inspiration from the magical beauty of the forest, transporting you to a fairy-tale atmosphere where dreams come to life. Picture the bride adorned with a delicate flower crown and the groom sporting a rustic boutonniere.

For such an ethereal occasion, the wedding ceremony is likely to take place in a clearing amidst the woods, where a canopy of hanging flowers and branches creates a breathtaking backdrop. Fear not, for you will have the opportunity to wear stiletto heels, as the Woodland Fairy Wedding trend has cleverly incorporated a star-dusted marble path, providing a solid footing even on the grass. Furthermore, instead of traditional wooden benches that could potentially damage delicate wedding guest dresses, cushions will be provided for your comfort. Pov you are most likely ist on that romantic metal chair with extra thick cushions – like the one I have on my clearing, you know, under the tree.

Anyway, back to the wedding you are about to attend this summer. The menu for this enchanting affair will showcase fresh and seasonal foods, tantalizing your taste buds with nature’s bountiful offerings. To enhance the rustic charm, drinks will be served in charming mason jars adorned with wildflowers, adding a touch of whimsy to each sip.

As twilight descends, the dance floor will come alive with twinkling fairy lights, casting a warm and magical glow. Encircled by towering trees and blooming flowers, you’ll find yourself immersed in a realm of enchantment as you sway to the music. The Woodland Fairy Wedding promises to transport you to a world where fantasy and reality intertwine, leaving you with memories that will forever dance in your heart.


The Woodland Fairy summer wedding theme demands an outfit that captures the magic of the moment, and an airy dress (it must not be white – get one of the airy dresses from the product gallery below) paired with embellished sandals is just the right choice.

Pov I wasn’t able to choose only one dress for you (I’m libra, but also airy dresses are selling out fast – the dairy wedding theme is very popular, and airy styles is the key fashion trends for summer 2024), so I chose five dresses for you.

They all feature delicate tulle and precious details that infuse them with charm and sophistication, perfectly suited for the romantic woodland setting. Crafted from light and airy chiffon, the fabric will gracefully flow with every step you take, mimicking the gentle breeze that rustles through the leaves.

To add a touch of vibrancy, I’ve paired these enchanting dresses with bow-adorned Choos that bring a pop of yellow, harmonizing with the vibrant pinks and purples of the surrounding flora.

As you find your seat among the trees and listen to the heartfelt vows, you’ll feel like a woodland fairy yourself. The sensation of floating on air will embrace you, as if the magic of the Woodland Fairy Wedding theme has enveloped you entirely.


As you step into the enchanting realm of the woodland fairy wedding, a dreamy atmosphere surrounds you. The trees, adorned with twinkling fairy lights, create a magical glow, while the air carries the intoxicating scent of blossoming flowers. Everywhere you look, earthy tones of green and brown blend harmoniously with bursts of vibrant pinks and purples, bringing the scene to life.

Your eyes are drawn to the bride, her dress adorned with delicate lace and floral embellishments, as she glides down the aisle. The sight fills your heart with awe, and you are captivated by the ethereal beauty of this mystical setting.

To fully immerse yourself in the magic of the moment, put on this Self Portrait long blue lace off-the-shoulder dress (it’s very similar to mine). The dress cascades down with a flowing hemline, swaying gracefully as you move, mirroring the gentle dance of leaves in the whimsical breeze.

Complete your look with stunning shoes, like these Mach & Mach sandals (pov, I’m wearing Casadei pumps, but Mach & Mach will be a better choice for this setting, also you already bought those sandals when shopping for the third wedding guest outfit right?), adding a touch of sophistication to the ethereal atmosphere. As you slip into this fairy wedding guest outfit, you’ll not only feel like a fairytale princess, but you’ll also effortlessly complement the woodland theme, standing out as the epitome of woodland elegance.

As the couple exchanges their vows, you will be swept away by the sheer magic of the moment. The dreamy setting, the delicate lace adorning your dress, and it will feel like stepping into a fairy tale.


On the other side of the spectrum, embrace the allure of exceptional dresses and sets in earthy tones, a perfect choice for a sweeping countryside setting.

Immerse yourself in the picturesque surroundings of the countryside, where nature’s palette of earthy hues unfolds in all its glory. These exceptional summer countryside wedding guest outfits, adorned in tones inspired by the rustic beauty of the landscape, will earn you the title of the best dressed wedding guest effortlessly.

They harmonize with the vibes and complement the rolling hills, the golden fields, and the vibrant blooms that dot the landscape, creating a seamless fusion between fashion and nature.

They celebrate the simplicity and elegance that the countryside embodies. And embrace the charm of rustic allure, allowing you to become one with the idyllic scenery. Whether adorned with a golden Etro apple or featuring flowing silhouettes, you will exude a sense of timeless beauty that resonates with the picturesque countryside setting.


Embrace a carefree and relaxed style as you venture into the picturesque countryside. Easygoing linen styles become the perfect choice to put you in the party mood for this delightful occasion.

Capture the essence of refined laid-back elegance by pairing your new linen dress with designer pointy flats. This combination exudes a sense of effortless sophistication, allowing you to move with grace and ease throughout the festivities.

Linen, with its lightweight and breathable nature, becomes a go-to fabric for the countryside setting. Its natural texture and relaxed drape harmonize with the surrounding landscape, creating a seamless blend of fashion and the beauty of nature.

As you slip into your linen dress, a sense of ease and comfort will wash over you. Linen embraces your body, offering a sense of freedom and allowing you to fully embrace the carefree atmosphere of the countryside. The soft, breathable nature of linen ensures you stay cool and comfortable as you celebrate in style.

Pair your dress with designer pointy flats (btw I have those too, but in black and they are very comfortable) and Etro golden apple bag to add a touch of refined elegance to your outfit. The sleek silhouette of the flats will complement the effortless charm of the linen dress, and strike the perfect balance between sophisticated and relaxed.


Picture this: The vineyard foliage flourishes during summer, basking in the warm sunlight. As you step onto the property, you’re immediately struck by the breathtaking view of the vineyard. The grapes are growing, some already riping. The scent of sweet, juicy grapes fills the air, especially in vineyards growing varieties like Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, or Muscat. Pov, the aroma can be reminiscent of fresh fruits and hints of floral notes. And the gentle breeze rustling through the grapevines. You can feel the excitement and anticipation in the air as the guests start to arrive to the wedding.

The scenery is perfectly complemented by your linen top in a soft, muted hue that blends effortlessly with the heated soil and dried grass. The lightweight fabric of the top feels airy and comfortable against your skin, making it an ideal choice for the warm summer weather.

You chose a black midi crochet skirt that falls just above the sandal straps. It’s the ideal length for a vineyard wedding, providing both comfort and style. You wanted to feel relaxed yet put-together for the occasion.

Ps. Don’t be lured by the scenery to walk through the vineyard. You won’t be able to walk among the vines in those heels. Better find your way to the wine cellar. And no, you won’t be cold. I tested this outfit in our family wine cellar (at 10°C) and it was ok.

The beauty of a pencil skrt lies in its versatility. It can easily be worn any time of the day and any day, making it the perfect choice for a city hall wedding. The texture of the skirt adds new dimensions, while the a floral cropped top adds a glamour that’s not too flashy. All the opposite, it exudes a refined elegance that’s suitable for the occasion.

To add a bit of color to your outfit, consider accessorizing with a pair of rose or gold high heel mules. Btw I’m wearing Malone Souliers mules. The heels are very high, but the ankle support is the best. And the pop of gold adds a touch of playfulness to the outfit, while the sleek design of the high heel mules keeps the look sophisticated.


If you find yourself fortunate enough to receive an invitation to a destination wedding this year, get ready for an exciting adventure. Destination weddings promise an unforgettable experience, but they also present unique challenges, particularly when it comes to choosing the perfect outfit.

Moreover, a long blue lace dress with short sleeves that can be worn on or off as a romantic off the shoulder dress can translate to any destination. I found mine at Self Portrait (you can shop for a similar one – here), but check also this long blue lace dress that I found for you.

When it comes to summer weddings by the sea, effortless and comfortable outfits are the key to looking dressed appropriately and enjoying the natural beauty of the location without any hindrances.

Embrace simplicity and ease with light fabrics and free-flowing shapes that keep you cool under the warm sun. Select colors that harmonize with the stunning sunset, and steer clear of bulky layers that may weigh you down.

Remember, you might find yourself with a touch of sand and salt, so choose an outfit that you don’t mind getting a little dirty. Above all, prioritize comfort and opt for stylish flats over uncomfortable heels if the wedding is not held at the beach club, ensuring you can revel in the festivities with ease and grace.


If the wedding is located at the beach club, though, then put on high heel sandals without thinking twice. Even more, if the dress code is all-white.

All-white dress codes can be tricky to pull off, especially if you don’t want to outshine the bride. I suggest you go for a white shirtdress with a captivating belt (btw mine is from Jw Andersonthis one is similar) that is effortlessly chic while still adhering to the dress code.


Beach wedding invitations without a specific dress code can leave you in a bit of a quandary. You want to avoid upstaging the bride by wearing white, yet still desire an outfit that captures the essence of beachside elegance without feeling weighed down. In such cases, I recommend opting for a linen dress that effortlessly exudes chicness while adhering to the unspoken dress code.

Envision yourself strolling along the sandy beach, feeling the gentle breeze caress your hair and the warmth of the sun on your skin as you approach the idyllic beachfront ceremony. With a trendy linen dress and fashionable slides, not only will you look stunning, but you’ll also feel at ease, ready to dance the night away.

The dress I’ve chosen for you (see the product gallery below) features a simple and elegant cut with a halterneck, boasting a light and airy feel that perfectly captures the essence of the beach atmosphere. As you move, the dress will gracefully sway with the gentle coastal breeze, instilling you with confidence and radiance, knowing you’ve discovered the ideal beach outfit for this special occasion. Whether you’re a close friend of the bride or a cherished plus one, this outfit is certain to leave a lasting impression, while still allowing the bride to shine on her momentous day.

The dress will gently sway with the breeze, and you will feel confident and radiant, knowing you’ve found the perfect outfit for the occasion. Whether you’re a friend of the bride or a plus one, this outfit is sure to impress while still allowing the bride to shine on her special day.


Prints look stunning against the waves and a short printed silk dress paired with wedges will earn you the title of the best dressed wedding guest the moment you step on the beach. I sure was that day.

The sun was setting over the ocean, casting a warm glow on the waves. The sand was warm beneath my feet, and the breeze was not gentle, but still, it felt nice. And I could feel the salt in my hair. I looked down at my outfit, a short printed silk dress (similar to this one) paired with wedge cotton sandals. I smiled. I knew I looked so good.

The dress was a beautiful shade of blue, with a delicate floral print. The vibrant print of the silk dress mirrored the vibrant energy of the beach, as if it was capturing the sun-drenched scenery in its floral pattern. The fabric was soft and flowing, and it felt amazing against my skin. The wedge sandals were comfortable and stylish, and they added a touch of height. Which is what you most likely want, too, don’t you?

I opened my eyes and looked out at the ocean. The waves were crashing against the shore, hitting my sandals. But the sun was setting in a blaze of glory and they dried fast.

Ps. Learn from my mistake and don’t walk too close to the sea. Cotton wedges dry fast, but you don’t want to walk around in wet shoes.


Glistening waves, a gentle sea breeze, and a touch of luxury await you as you embark on a yacht wedding adventure this summer. Picture yourself aboard a magnificent vessel, surrounded by opulence and the sparkling expanse of the sea. It’s a setting that demands an equally enchanting outfit, capturing the essence of romance and elegance.

As the sun casts its golden glow upon the deck, you’ll want an outfit that exudes sophistication and timeless allure. But what about during midday?

I would go for this outfit.


An outfit that captures the essence of nautical elegance, effortlessly blending style and comfort. Just picture yourself wearing a hi-low striped flounced shirtdress (btw mine is sold out – but you will prefer the one in the product gallery below even more anyway), its playful flounces mirroring the gentle movement of the waves. The vertical stripes elongate your silhouette, creating a sophisticated and flattering look. It’s a dress that embraces the carefree spirit of summer while maintaining an air of refinement.

Paired with Stuart Weitzman nudist song metallic sandals, your yacht wedding guest outfit will exude a touch of glamour. The sleek metallic straps will wrap delicately around your ankles, adding an element of allure to your every step. Ps. If you are attending a boat wedding, opt for flats instead. High heel sandals are yacht exclusive.

As the boat glides through the water, you will feel the gentle sea breeze caressing your skin. Your hi-low striped flounced shirtdress will billow gracefully, creating a mesmerizing dance of fabric in the wind.


While backyard weddings are not popular anymore, swimming pool weddings are trending again. And most of them come with this one dress code: white but not bridal white. So what to wear then? A swimwear?

If swimwear is a dress code for a wedding by the swimming pool, then yes. But, do wear it like this.


To elevate the bikini, and make it wedding approporate, go for a lightweight blouse that complements the venue and the shorts. Opt for a flowy fabric that drapes gracefully, or embroidered cotton to add a touch of casual elegance to your look.

Pov, it is important to choose a fabric with delicate details like ruffles, lace, or intricate embroidery that elevate the overall aesthetic. It’s a combination that effortlessly embodies the carefree spirit of a poolside wedding.

Complete your poolside wedding look with high heel wedges, adding height and glamour to your fit. Opt for See by Chloé wedges (I have those too) with comfortable straps and a sturdy base to ensure stability on the pool deck. The wedges will elongate your silhouette and add a touch of sophistication to your overall appearance.
