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.

Easy Appetizer: Cucumber Bites with Cream Cheese

 

Here's a quick and easy appetizer before I hit the road for Texas. I made these for a bridal shower this spring, and people loved them. They couldn't be more easy or affordable, and they're so delicious. It's easy appetizers like this that make entertaining go off without a hitch.


You just need a couple of crisp cucumbers and cream cheese to make them. Cut the cucumbers into 1/2" slices and top with the cream cheese. I'd say the tricky part is that the cheese has a tendency to slide off the cucumber slices. I used a melon baller to scoop some of the seeds out from the top side before I topped it with the cream cheese. You could also pipe it on with an icing bag. This isn't an appetizer I'd recommend you prep ahead of time, because the cucumbers could get soggy, but an hour or two before an event is just fine.

From there you can garnish with so many different things. I simply used dried Italian herbs, because that was what I had on hand, and I also wanted a vegetarian, gluten-free option. Though you could top these with bits of bacon, prosciutto, smoked salmon, tomato, scallions, so many different options.
