Wedding season is in full swing, and, for me, dressing for this particular festivity involves finding a balance between maintaining some personal style while staying classy, appropriate and comfortable. A wedding is about the people that are getting married, and taking attention away from that by dressing inappropriately, whether it’s by being too dressed up or too dressed down, is a major no-no. This said, weddings are an opportunity to get a bit fancy and wear something fun, so if you’re anything like me and enjoy the opportunity to get swanky, you can incorporate something special into your day, like a fun headpiece (I chose a floral one for this outfit). Keeping your outfit (or whatever you choose to wear) unstressed and simple is key, as you’re probably going to be in your outfit for a while. Though it’s not super visible, my dress is (tastefully) backless and because my hair doesn’t fare that well in the heat, I went with a super-simple updo. I find summer weddings can get warm, and ensuring that you’ve taken some steps to remain comfortable throughout the events of the day will make you one graceful guest.
