Summer Wedding Guests - What you Need to Know

As the summer wedding season draws to a close, it's time to reflect on these lovely days of beach weddings and garden party bridal showers. While we love being a part of the celebrations, here are some tips to conquer the not-so-fun parts of summer weddings.

I don't have anything to wear
Between weddings, bridal showers and other summer entertaining, the whole season can mean needing a whole lot of occasion-specific clothing. You don't need to buy a whole new wardrobe to be a stylish wedding guest. We're big believers of using accessories and jewelry to create a new look with dresses you already have in your closet. Everyone has two closet staples that are perfect for summer events – the little black dress and the floral dress. And that's all you need: remember this for the next summer wedding season.

The Little Black Dress
A black dress to a wedding? Sure, if it is an evening event or a semi-formal event. A dress with a modest silhouette works best for weddings. Give any low cut, form-fitting or super short dresses a miss. So, how can you revamp the little black dress that you have put on many, many times before. A little can go a long way in dressing up a simple yet well-tailored black dress.  

1. Add a little sparkle
Consider our Love Knot Pendant Necklace to add just the light amount of sparkle. The row of sparkling diamonds is complemented by the rope detailing. The playful design is also perfect for an occasion like a wedding. The pendant necklace will also complement a fun fit and flare dress or a romantic A-line dress. Now, if your style is more sleek and your little black dress is a sheath dress with a boat neck, the necklace on the right will be a more apt choice. It is our Diamond Station Necklace set in sterling silver.

2. Add a little color
An oh-so-chic and easy way of styling a little black dress for a wedding is to add color. The easiest way is to pair your dress with bright heels. A simple black dress paired with red shoes is a classic look for a reason – it's timeless and looks amazing. If you're going to be on your feet for a while, consider something with kitten heels, like the ones on the left. A litter glitter and shine also works for shoes. Golden shoes, like the ones below, when paired with a simple black dress will look fabulous for a formal wedding.

3. Bright accessories
Continue the color pop effect with a belt or a handbag or even a watch. If you can't find a belt of the right shade, loop a scarf around your waist. Small details like a red manicure can also brighten your wedding guest look.

4. Gemstones

Is there anything so brightly beautiful as gemstones? Sapphires, rubies, emeralds and peridots. They are available in a wide spectrum of colors. So, they are perfect to add a bit of fun color to your black dress. And, gemstone jewelry is available in so many beautiful designs.  The ruby and diamond ring is a good choice for adding a subtle pop of color while the sapphire earrings make a big impact. The vivid green of this emerald bracelet will also go wonderfully with a black dress. If you're looking for something with subtle color, this rose quartz necklace with its blush pink shade makes a subtle style statement.  

Now that we have tackled the biggest question of summer weddings, let's move on to the pesky problems.

The weather
If you tan easily or worse, get sunburns, always have a light shawl or a jacket handy along with spray-on sunscreen. A pretty jacket in summer colors or a shawl in pastel shades is summer-chic and helps avoid weird tan lines. Also, most wedding venues have shaded spots. Scout them out before the ceremony for some much needed respite.

Choosing the right shoes may mean the difference between a fun night or a miserable day spent walking uncomfortably. Shoes with thicker heels that won’t sink into soft grass are a better bet than stilettos. And for that pesky shine on your nose and forehead, keep some blotting paper and powder in your bag.

Be all set for the next season's summer weddings with these ideas.
