What to Wear to a Summer Daytime Wedding

Quote of the day: “If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way.  If you don’t, you find an excuse.” Jim Rohn

The summer wedding is a popular event no matter what your age.  Yet even as we get older, we still we worry about what we should wear.  The daytime wedding tends to be a more casual event, so a dress or separates work well.

The rules seem to be changing every year, but one thing is certain, is to wear a nice dress and you’ll look fine!  You can check the previous post to see us dolled up for an outdoor summer wedding.

50’s Summer Wedding: I actually purchased this dress specifically for a wedding about 5 years ago.  I try to wear it for other occasions to make it more versatile, but I might as well get use out of it if I’m going to a wedding.

60’s Summer Wedding: I love Nancy’s floral flats and thought they’d be appropriate since this post is all about a daytime affair.  The cardigan is very light and just in case the air-conditioning is too cold!

If you like the idea of separates better, here are some skirts that would be wedding guest appropriate (all around the $50 mark):

  • I love the complementary color scheme of all the looks together. Jodie, you look lovely in the yellow dress and that statement necklace is perfect for it. I absolutely love the cobalt dress on Ms. Nancy. I would wear her complete ensemble. Ms. Charlotte’s look is soft and graceful, and my favorite part of her look are the accessories.

    Happy Monday

    • Thank you for the wonderful compliments! Happy Monday back at you!!

  • So beautiful colors for all of you. And your accessories compliment the looks nicely. I mostly like your mother’s look.

  • I have no weddings to go to this year…so far! Lol love these outfits but especially the bright blue. The one great thing about summer weddings is being able to really do colour big. Makes it truly a special occasion! Thank you so much for linking to #MidLifeLuv.

    • Thanks Elana! I must admit, I do love color!!
      ps…you could always crash a wedding…ha ha!!

    I have one wedding to attend this year. Thanks for this post, it’s giving me some great ideas from the clothes and accessories I already have. The yellow dress looks so nice paired with the pink cardigan.

    Diary of Elegance

  • Loving your layered yellow dress! Y’all just look fantastic! Your mom also looks very pretty in yellow and Nancy’s cobalt dress is beautiful. Weddings are always so fun to attend. Thanks for the suggestions!

  • It’s funny that you mentioned your mom’s complexion because I was just thinking how beautiful it was. Then, I went back to look at yours and it’s flawless as well!! Love that you and your mom are both wearing yellow. That’s a great color on both of you. Nancy looks equally as stunning in that blue! On a side note: I haven’t been to a wedding in years!

    • No weddings? You could always go crash a couple, just for the excuse of dressing up!!! Thanks for the compliments—it’s taken me years to embrace my whiteness (although I do still miss tanning) and my mom still complains that she’s “too pale”.
