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.

I used a tartan sheet in red and blue to tie in the unusual color combo, and it worked beautifully. I layered red chargers underneath the blue dishes, then layered red and white napkins over each place setting.

For the Thanksgiving centerpiece I used items I already had from my autumn decor, like the pumpkins and pine cones. I added in some red pillar candles I had on hand along with some pears I picked up at the store. If you have a table runner, or even a scarf or ribbon you can run down the middle of the table, you don't have to use any fancy containers or candle holders for your centerpiece. You can line everything up directly on top of the runner.
