Think beach or backyard wedding. Often less formal and more intimate. As a mom, this is also the most practical of the 3 options simply because its easy to bend down to take care of little ones in long dresses and flat shoes are obviously easier to maneuver.
I think its important to note the fabric of the dress you choose. A cotton maxi dress might not be appropriate where a silky fabric or a high quality jersey would. I love this option from forever 21!
This is my favorite of the 3 and I feel it would be perfect for an evening summer wedding. An A-line mid length skirt should be a closet staple! Pair this lightweight silk option with a breezy tank and dress it up with some classic wedges. If the weather is especially hot I love the idea of a loose ponytail to keep your hair off your neck.
Here is a great opportunity to pull out my alternative to the little black dress! Somewhat conservative with the high neckline but still modern and fun with the flattering fit and bright color. In this case I feel less is more. A pair of nude pumps and some interesting earrings and you're ready to go.
I hope you found this post helpful and have a few ideas for what to wear to a summer wedding!
Thanks for reading!
