Wedding Guest Fashion: The Day Wedding

Welcome to the final collaborative day of the Spring/Summer Wedding Guest Dress for Success Guide.  Today is dedicated to the day wedding, which tends to be less common but cannot be ignored.  Dressing for a day wedding can be tricky, because a lot of dresses that we purchase with the hopes of wearing to an evening event do not translate to day time.  Shorter hemlines, uber figure hugging silhouettes, sequins and boobilicious dresses don’t always lend themselves to blaring spotlight of the sun.  Because of this people tend to turn to business wear or more casual options both of which lack the necessary flare for a celebratory event.  As always play with proportions, colors (embrace color, patterns, and subtle shimmer), fabrics (make sure it is light and airy so you are comfortable), silhouettes and hemlines.  Finding the balance for a day wedding can be tricky, but when executed correctly it is absolute perfection.

I would like to thank all of the fabulous collaborators that made this post possible!  Thank you Carine’s Bridal Atelier for the gorgeous gowns, Charm & Fornash for the brilliant baubles, and Drybar for the beautiful blow out.

Day wedding

Day weddings tend to be more conservative, but make sure your ensemble has some spice to it! I love this dress because of the fabulous metallic detailing.

Wedding Fashion

Always make sure your accessories complement the clothes and enhance the look.

I am very into full skirts this spring/summer! The volume is dramatic & classic at the same time.

A relaxed blow out was the perfect finishing touch for the ensemble
