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.

Fun Spring Hostess Gifts Under $20

They put in time and effort (and cost) to host you for brunch or dinner. The least you can do is bring a little something. It doesn't have to be expensive. Something between $10 and $20 is perfectly acceptable, and I'd say unless you're brunching with Martha Stewart, it's appropriate to keep it under $30 or so.

For a hostess gift anytime of year, you could bring something yummy, like chocolates or wine. If you go that route, my rule of thumb is to bring something in addition to whatever you're contributing to the meal. A hostess gift should be just that - a gift for the hostess! Fresh flowers are also lovely, though I love to bring things the hostess can use over and over for entertaining. For the perfect spring-themed hostess gift, you may be tempted to get something floral-themed. Think just a little bit outside of the box with something fun and colorful. Here are some of my top picks for spring hostess gifts under $20, starting with the adorable ceramic berry basket pictured above.
