Attending a wedding this summer, but not sure what to wear? It's easy to be torn between a floaty maxi, and a flirty mini once the warmer weather rolls round. Here we show you her top dress picks for Summer Weddings - plus, we attempt to tick off all the key dress codes so you won't have to look any further. 


When the invite calls for Black Tie, but the forecast is set to soar above 30 degrees it is totally acceptable to opt for a brighter colour palette or shorter hemline. These four styles ooze glam while still being comfortable and special enough for a black tie dress code.

When the dress code states "Formal" think one step up from the usual cocktail attire you see at most weddings. This can be achieved by choosing a luxe fabric such as satin, or sequins. You can also dress up a cocktail dress with glam accessories to elevate it to a formal look. We always encourage our customers to choose a mid to 3/4 length dress for formal weddings.

So whilst it is not exactly a "dress code", winery weddings generally lend themselves to a slightly more casual look (unless stated otherwise on the invite). Floral, polk-a-dot and bold prints are always well received at wineries. You might also like to try out a jumpsuit, or floaty maxi style. Many winery weddings will involve walking on grass so a wedge or block heel is a must!

In the summertime you might find yourself on the sand for a friend's wedding. Beach weddings are a great opportunity to wear bright colours and shorter hemlines.
