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.

Little Purple Dresses & What to Wear Them With


Last year before Valentine's Day, I featured little pink dresses and little red dresses. I'm still amazed at how many views these posts get compared to everything else on the site. We ladies love our little dresses I suppose. And while I still think it's great to have a standard little black dress, it's nice to mix things up and get some color. This year I've got purple on the brain. The rich, dark pinks and fuchsias are still very hot this year, but in case you haven't already heard, radiant orchid is the it color for 2014. Much like the flower, the color orchid ranges in many different shades. As long as you get a purple with some pink undertones, you've got radiant orchid. Think fuchsia with a bit more purple.

It's easy to see in both of the layouts above that this shade of purple works well on just about any skin tone, which makes it an ideal color for a bridesmaid dress.

There are a few different options when it comes to accessorizing a radiant orchid dress. It look great with either gold or silver. If you go with silver, you can add in some white with the shoes or clutch. If you pair it with gold accessories, you can add on black shoes or a black clutch. You could color block with pink or with cool tones like blue, but metallics are very hot for spring and summer 2014. I'd go with gold.
