Dressing for an outdoor wedding in summer is difficult. You need a dress that helps you beat the heat and shoes that won’t make walking difficult. At the same time, you don’t want to look drab! You can’t wear your heavy gown to such events because, well, the sweat will mess it up!

What you wear to an outdoor summer wedding should not only be practical and easy-to-carry, but also feel cool and look chic. This is the time to experiment with skirts, jumpsuits, and suits.

Whether the wedding is going to be a seaside soiree, a swanky rooftop affair or a sophisticated garden party, we have got you covered. Here’s how you can pull off different outfits for the perfect outdoor wedding look.

The Little Black Dress


Who says you can’t wear an LBD to a wedding? An off-the-shoulder black dress is perfect for an outdoor wedding because it is simple and comfortable, yet chic. Both, danglers and chandelier earrings go well with this kind of dress. You can also accessorize with a pendant necklace or a Y-necklace and a cocktail ring. But don’t go overboard. Choose either the earrings or the necklace. Those who think flats can’t look fancy with a dress should try soft floral printed ballerina flats. If you love your sky-high heels, wear a pair of black pumps or metallic heels with your LBD to up the oomph factor.

Skirt Set

We don’t blame you if you are bored of wearing dresses to weddings. Swap them for a summer skirt-blouse set instead. How about a wrap skirt and a cropped blouse in a bright color? You can wear the outfit as a set or each item separately even after the wedding at other events. A pair of mismatched earrings will add to more fun to the outfit. A long statement neckpiece will also look chic. Remember that you need only one statement piece in your attire, so go bold either with the necklace or the earrings, not both. For footwear, you can choose strappy sandals or low heels.



A jumpsuit looks so much more adventurous than a sundress and keeps your fashion game on point, even at a wedding. If you are tall, wide-legged jumpsuits are for you. If not, then go for cropped jumpsuits. You can also wear jumpsuits that come with belts and match their color with that of your shoes. Wear comfortable shoes in which you can dance. For wearing jewelry, there is only one rule - keep it minimalistic. This means no chandeliers and danglers. Wear small diamond and gold studs or hoops. Carry a floral sling bag that will go with the outdoor theme. Finish the look with a pair of vintage cat-eye sunglasses and you are ready to go.

Summer Suits


Suits are not just for winters. They can be easily worn in summers if you pick the right fabric. Because few women choose to wear suits or tuxedos to weddings, you have much room to experiment. You don’t have to stick to the traditional black and white theme. How about donning a frilly or ruffled shirt under a sequined blazer? An ensemble featuring a bow blouse, a striped shirt or a loud polka dotted shirt with a pastel colored blazer can also be a statement maker. Choose cotton, linen or mohair fabrics, and colors like lavender, peach, and pink to stay well ventilated. A shimmery blazer can also make heads turn. A delicate gold chain and gold studs and a pair of comfortable platform shoes are all you need to complete the look.

Sunny Dress


A short sunny dress with long sleeves and crew neck is perfect for an outdoor wedding. Choose a color that is as sunny as the day like bright yellow or orange. If it gets cold at night, the long sleeves will come handy. Add some interest to the dress with statement jewelry like a pair of diamond and emerald earrings. We love Bluestone’s exclusive collection of stylish earrings. A printed crossbody bag with the dress will give you the cool girl look, and a pair of espadrilles wedges or flats will complete the attire.

Outdoor summer weddings open up plenty of style options for you to look your best. You simply have to be a little smart with your choice of colors, fabrics and style. After all, you don’t want to be that guest who is seen sweating profusely in all the pictures! We hope these dress options help you survive the most sweltering outdoor temperatures and deflate your weather-related stress for the wedding. Cheers to looking cool and beating the heat!
