The summer wedding season is here and it’s time to start planning what you’re wearing to the ones you have on your calendar! Whether it’s a destination wedding, indoors or outdoors, or in a backyard, there are so many gorgeous dresses to pick from right now. If you’re heading to a wedding this season that’s on the casual side and are confused as to what to wear, I’ve got you covered! In this post, I’m breaking down exactly what to wear to a casual summer wedding plus three wedding guest looks to make shopping easier!

What to Wear to a Casual Summer Wedding

Puff Sleeve Midi Dress with Wedge Sandals

For a backyard or casual micro wedding, an elevated midi dress is always a great option. This floral puff sleeve one has such a fun pattern and is just dressy enough. Pair it with a pair of espadrille wedges like this pair (under $50) to elevate the look even more. Whenever I’m invited to a wedding, if I’m unsure of where the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception will take place, I always wear wedges since they’re stable on all different terrains.

Ruched Body Con Dress with Heeled Sandals

For a casual evening wedding, I still like to feel a little dressier and this dress is the perfect option! It’s feminine, it’s flirty, and the color and pattern are beautiful. It’s perfect for a wedding at any venue and will get you lots of compliments. To continue the whimsical feel, I’d pair it with these heeled sandals and a simple bag like this one.

Floral Off The Shoulder Dress with Heeled Mules

If you’ve been invited to a wedding that has a daytime casual, garden attire, or cocktail dress code, this dress is a great option! It’s flowy and whimsical without being too dressy or too casual. The colors are very summery so pair it with a bag like this whicker one to really lean into the summer colors and textures. Since the dress is more elevated, you can get away with wearing a more casual shoe like this pair of block heeled sandals.
