When it comes to choosing when to get married, the summer wedding always comes out on top. Whether the bride and groom to be are deciding to go abroad to a hot location or setting their wedding date in August, most people prefer a warmer climate for their special day.
But what does this mean for you, the wedding guest? What dresses can you wear that look chic without making you break into a sweat within the first five minutes of arriving at the reception? Is there a colour palette you should stick to? What styles are ‘in’ this SS17?
Don’t fret. It’s a lot easier to choose an option than you think! This summer is seeing us wearing floral garments, or bold warm colours with LOTS of texture. On the other end of the spectrum, we’re also seeing simple, sleek nude tones with splashes of blue. (I strongly advise you to check out Elie Saab’s Spring/Summer 2017 Couture collection, you’ll fall in love).
