Fashion Forward: Summer Wedding Style

With summer comes wedding season, which can be your favorite time of the year—thanks to the dancing, the reuniting of friends and, of course, the open bar. It can also be the most dreaded season, because it raises an all-too-familiar question: “What do I wear?” You can get easily overwhelmed selecting an outfit when venues range from churches to beaches, and with receptions running from daytime to nighttime. Luckily, we’ve got the perfect ensembles to ensure you always look tasteful and appropriate this wedding season.

Traditional Wedding  ($3,500, Gucci, Town Center at Boca Raton)

This juniper-green Gucci floral lace dress is the perfect ensemble to wear to any traditional wedding venue like a church or synagogue. The dark green and lace pattern gives the dress a beautiful vintage feel that complements the classic setting. Plus, the modest sleeves are a chic way to stay tastefully appropriate in any place of worship.

Beach Wedding ($495, Intermix, Town Center at Boca Raton)

The beach venue offers a more casual atmosphere for the wedding and, consequently, allows for more casual attire. This gives you the freedom to branch out into other ensembles like a contemporary jumpsuit instead of the classic dress. This Jay Godfrey jumpsuit gives you the perfect beach vibe by incorporating casual elements like the flowy top, wide leg and subtle open back. Plus, the beautiful light pink color emulates the beige sand and salty white ocean hue.

Garden Wedding ($1,995, Neiman Marcus, Town Center at Boca Raton)

This Monique Lhuillier strapless print dress is perfect to wear for a garden or outdoor wedding. The seafoam green color plays off the lush and vibrant greenery that surrounds the venue. And the dress’s intricate bird and leaf print conveys a romantic feel that ties into the beautiful nature theme of the wedding.

Resort Wedding ($894, Neiman Marcus, Town Center at Boca Raton)

Make waves in this vibrant yet elegant Oscar de la Renta dress that goes a long way in color, fit and design. The faded yellow adds a fun touch to the ocean-side venue while staying wedding-appropriate. The stylish, slim fit is a beautiful way to subtly show off your summer curves, and the flouncy hem almost mimics the movement of the ocean waves and adds a youthful touch to the dress.

Evening Wedding ($298, BCBG Maxazria, Town Center at Boca Raton)

This radiant red gown exudes a classy and sexy look that will allow you to stay comfortable yet stylish all night long. The dress’s color is a classic yet bold red that gives you a regal feel. The dress also has sexy touches, like the slit that gives your leg the perfect definition and the lace detail, which adds a beautiful, feminine touch.
