3 Looks for a Summer Wedding

It seems not too long ago when I shared three looks to wear to a spring wedding. But that season has come and gone so quickly, and summer is upon us. And it is the biggest season of the year for weddings, so chances are you have a few invites and may be wondering what to wear. It's pretty easy to figure out summer wedding attire if you keep the location in mind.

Of course you have the invite to start with as well. It should say "Black Tie Attire" or "Black Tie Optional" or perhaps something like "Formal Beach Attire," and it will have the ceremony time. Generally indoor evening weddings call for more formal attire than outdoor afternoon weddings.

The Washington Monument. (It sure was foggy that night.)


Fifty flags, one to represent each state, surround the monument.


The Lincoln Memorial. Counting from the very bottom at the Reflecting Pool to the very top, there are 98 steps. If you go to this, you might be tempted to not walk up all of steps it takes to get inside. But it is worth seeing up close, not to mention the beautiful architecture and murals inside the memorial.
