Outfits for a Summer Evening Wedding

Quote of the day: “The best way to be missed when you’re gone is to stand for something when you’re here.” Seth Godin

Now here’s a fabulous opportunity to really get gussied up and look great (while enjoying wedding cake!). Of course everyone’s definition of what is appropriate for an evening wedding is different. Indubitably, one must take into account what the invitation states as it’s dress code.

Since times have gotten more casual over the years, I didn’t pull out the full length formals for this post. If you missed the previous installments, I gave examples for the outdoor wedding and daytime wedding.

50’s Summer Wedding: When I wear this dress I put it on backwards (on purpose).  The front is cut quite a bit lower, so I tend to wear it more this way! I actually wore it this last weekend to our nephew’s wedding in Connecticut, only with a yellow belt and a different necklace.

60’s Summer Wedding: And isn’t this dress a stunner?  When Nancy tried this on at the store, I knew it was a winner!  The shawl is only needed to cover up in the cool evening air as she goes to and from the venue!

70’s Summer Wedding: I guess mom and Nancy almost look like twins for this post.  I didn’t even realize I was styling them so similar until I was putting the pictures together.  It must be because blue is a great color and a shawl is a wonderful accessory!

    Very pretty! Jodie, I’m so glad you sent me back to this post. No comments? You should rerun this. I love the way you accessorized all the dresses. The wrap on your mom is so perfect too. So often dresses are sleeveless but it’s cold in churches and reception halls.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I’ve never thought about rerunning posts….thanks for the idea. And the comments (or lack of) is interesting, because when I go back to those posts, I noticed none of them had comments, yet I’m sure there were some (in fact I know it) ? I changed over to Disqus about 3 months ago, so I’m wondering if that’s the reason? So interesting!! I totally agree with you about it’s cold in many places…I’m always saying that I have to take a sweater or jacket for inside not outside in the summer months!!

    • I agree with you Elena…that dress would be great on so many bodies!!! Thanks for the link up opportunity!
