What to wear: summer weddings

Forever New Portsea

Wedding season is here, and the bride isn’t the only one who needs to say yes to a dress.

Floaty silhouettes, romantic ruffled details and pastel hues are our summer-wedding loves. From seaside vows to classic ceremonies, we explore must-wear wedding styles to help you find your perfect match.

Garden Celebrations

A garden wedding is the perfect occasion for delicate blooms and frills. We’re loving a tiered maxi dress in a soft floral print. Feminine and pretty, this option is a romantic choice. Pair with strappy stilettos and a nude clutch for a dreamy day-time ensemble.

For a modern take on classic florals, a linen co-ord is a summer favourite. Try a set with cropped wide-leg pants and a fitted bustier for a structured and chic look.

By the beach

Relaxed silhouettes and soft hues are ideal for celebrations by the sea. Mirror the landscape by opting for a pastel blue midi-dress. Choose a variation with puff sleeves for a trending-now twist. Breezy designs belong by the beach, pairing elegantly with nude wedges and subtle gold jewellery.

Alternatively, embrace the coastal location by slipping into a tropical print jumpsuit. The all-in-one provides maximum comfort so you can dance the night away in style. Add strappy mules and statement earrings for a summer-chic look.

After Dark

For weddings after night-fall, opt for glamorous statement pieces. Elegant and chic, a satin wide-leg jumpsuit is sure to impress. Pair with high block heels and sparkling earrings for a party-ready finish.

A bold metallic maxi is another ideal choice for evening celebrations. We love lightweight pleated designs in black and gold hues. Glamorous and sophisticated, this is a style that will steal your heart.

Classic Ceremonies

Classic chapel ceremonies call for timeless silhouettes. A satin midi dress with an asymmetric neckline is an elevated choice that works for formal or traditional wedding venues. Wear with pearl hair clips and strappy heels for an elegant finish.

Another summer favourite is a jacquard chiffon midi dress. A fitted silhouette complete with ruffled trim is made for summer weddings in classic locations. Exude sophistication and wear yours with barely-there heels and drop earrings.
