What to Wear to a Summer Wedding: Floral Dresses

Like zealous botanists in uncharted landscapes, we’re discovering an abundance of unique flora this season. And like anthomanics, we want them all. Flowers are blooming on the season’s best party dresses—it’s a trend as welcome as a surprise bouquet delivery. Petal prints set an enthusiastic and festive tone, no matter the setting or formality of the occasion. For a wedding, especially, there’s no better way to inject beautiful colors into your outfit.

We’ve picked our favorite flowery frocks. See the half-dozen styles, plus what to pair them with this summer on the nuptial circuit.

What to Wear to a Summer Wedding

You’re already fully booked—there’s your cousin’s shindig in Santa Barbara, a college pal is getting hitched in Boston, then you’re a date for two other ceremonies this summer. We get it—you’re a popular party guest.

Although your calendar is filled in, what to wear to remains an open question. Whether it’s a swanky brunch, formal dinner or beach drinks, our stylists have seasonal suggestions for wedding dressing. Read on for the right dresses, jumpsuits and men’s suits for the different kinds of nuptials.

Wedding-Guest Dresses | The Realest

Why should models have all the fun? We decided each month we’d find a “real woman”–i.e., of all shapes and sizes–and give her the model treatment. In this new feature, we bring the wardrobe, stylist, photographer and blog editor–she brings her anything-but-one-size-fits-all personality and style–and we all head out on location for an IRL photo shoot. Meet this month’s featured guest, Kathy Loyola–a new mom who balances a busy work schedule as a content publisher at Microsoft while she and her husband raise their 13-month-old, Lexi, at home. As a petite woman who stands at 5′ 3″ (and a half!), Kathy sometimes feels frustrated not knowing how clothes seen online will look once they’re actually on her.

That’s where we step in, outfitting her in guest-of-wedding dresses to inspire looks that take the stress out of that moment just after that invitation is received. What to wear? What to wear! Read on to get to know Kathy, and see our stylist suggestions for the perfect dress (hint: it’s all about rich, beautiful color) and accessories–no matter the occasion.
