Summer Wedding Outfits

The summer wedding season is in full swing at this time of year so take inspiration from our selection of special occasion summer wedding outfits. Up-the-ante when it comes to special occasion dressing with plenty of shimmer and lace. The choice is endless, with colourful creations and classic silhouettes. Warmer temperatures allow dresses to be worn alone with a coordinating clutch, heels and feather fascinator. Sunshine colours and prints to dazzle will suit all your social gatherings. Feminine race day dresses and wide brim hats for Ascot, midi/maxi skirts and sleeveless tops for garden parties and Mother of the Bride/Groom shift dresses and matching jackets.

Dress and Matching Jackets Outfits

A dress and bolero jacket or dress and matching corsage wedding coat is a timeless look that always adds elegance to any occasion. The Mother of the Bride, the Mother of the Groom, and not forgetting the Grandmother of the Bride will be spoilt for choice when choosing summer wedding outfits. Summer dresses can be delicate floaty creations, lightweight skirts can be complemented with stylish jackets, and a spectacular hat can make a statement.

Summer Wedding Hat Styles

Weddings are one of those times when you can have fun trying out the different hat styles, and the bigger, the better. Wide-brimmed hats are perfect for summertime and special occasions wouldn’t be the same without them. However, it is wise to get the look right and make sure it compliments what you wear on the day. Not everyone can wear a wide brim despite how glamorous they look; a small-brimmed hat may be better and can be soon bedecked with finery to set off an outfit. Discover modern Mother of the Bride summer wedding outfits at Gina BacconiPhase Eight, Hobbs, Coast and L.K. Bennett. Classic skirt suits from Eastex and plus size occasion wear from Navabi, Chesca and Jacques Vert.

Dress Suits for the Mother of the Bride/Groom

A plain suit or dress can magically transform into something special with a hat. Summertime is full of brightly coloured hats made from soft, delicate fabrics that won’t cast a shadow over your face; which is the last thing you want to happen. Good colours for Mother of the Bride summer wedding outfits are ivory, and cream. almond, coral pink, peach, orange, lavender, lilac, purple, sage green, and yellow. Taking time out mixing and matching clothes until you find the right look will be rewarding. Your choice of outfit will get you noticed as you project yourself in a totally new light. You will feel comfortable and relaxed, ready to meet the demands of the day and look a million dollars all at the same time.


Mother of the Bride Wedding and Occasion Coats

Grandmother of the Bride Outfits

Floral patterns, and sheer material, with frills or without, can all hold their place when buying summer wedding outfits. Older, more elegant ladies or the Grandmother of the Bride will be attracted to a two-piece dress and jacket. Whereas fashion followers and younger models may crave whatever is in vogue and be on the lookout for the latest designer dresses.

A Mother of the Bride or Groom hasn’t always got to go with tradition they may want to create a whole new look. There are a few factors to consider when buying summer wedding outfits, mainly age, body shape and personal preferences. You can also go for elegance, a timeless classic, or be bold with the latest trend.
