What to Wear to A Summer Wedding – The Best Dressed Wedding Guest Looks

It’s (finally) WEDDING SEASON, everyone!! and that means… it’s shopping season. I’m always getting asked for dress recommendations for guests attending weddings, so I wanted to round up my top looks for this Summer  – for all of the different types of weddings – including all the dresses I’m buying for all the weddings I’m attending this year!

Whether you’re looking for the best dresses for a destination wedding, an elegant wedding guest look, or the best black tie attire, I’m here to help.

The main thing to remember when it comes to dressing for different wedding themes and dress codes, is stay away from white, ivory, or anything that can be confused with a bridal color. Other than that, have fun with your wedding looks! (You can shop by clicking the photos!)

Here are my picks for the ultimate wedding guest looks
