If you’re getting married in the summer you’ve probably heard this mantra when it comes to choosing your gown: Pick a lightweight style so you’ll stay comfortable in the heat. We wholeheartedly agree with this premise, however, that doesn’t mean that you have to wear a dress that’s fit for the beach (although it’s certainly appropriate!); there are lots of gown styles that are summery and airy, whether you’re looking for something grand, romantic, or modern.
Beachy: Flowy, Grecian-inspired styles like this gown by David’s Bridal are perfect for beach weddings. A bit of sparkle is also appropriate, but don’t go overboard with the heavy beading.
Classic: If you’re hosting a formal wedding in the summertime, by all means wear a classic ballgown or A-line style, like this Amsale creation. Just choose a fabric that’s relatively lightweight, like organza or tulle.
Short: Obviously, short wedding dresses are made for summer weddings – we particularly love styles with touches of feminine lace, like this dress by Ivy & Aster. Jazz things up with a fun pair of shoes.
Romantic: Lace and ruffled chiffon wedding dresses are perfect for outdoor weddings in the summertime. This style, by Jenny Lee, has a garden fairy vibe that we just adore.
