Summer wedding clothes for women – 7 tips to look the part

As the warm weather is fast approaching – it’s now summer wedding season. This can cause all kinds of stress and anxiety.  There’s always a little more pressure when there is a wedding involved, which means you need to choose what you are wearing carefully.  Here we have listed some top tips for ladies on how you can look the part at the next wedding you’re invited to.


Check the dress code

The first thing you should do when trying to coordinate your look is check to see if there is any specific dress code that you should adhere to.  Often this will be on the invitation itself, so make sure you look it out in plenty of time.  That way you will know if there is any kind of theme involved – for example, if it’s a simple traditional affair or a relaxed casual wedding on the coast where a beach co-ord set could work well. This will help you on your way to making the right fashion choices.  If you do have any questions – make sure you ask the happy couple before the event to avoid any embarrassment.


Get some killer heels

You can’t have a beautiful evening dress without some great shoes to go with it.  You can get shoes to suit all kinds of dresses – and they could be just the finishing touch you need to look the part.  As it’s summer – you might want to opt for some open toe shoes.  That way you won’t need to worry about sweaty or smelly feet and just be concerned about looking fabulous.

Shop around for the perfect evening dress

It could be that you are just going to the reception of the wedding – or that it promises to be a classy affair.  In which case, you might want to go for something a little bit more special than you normally would.  Jovani evening dresses will be sure to have you stand out from the crowd.  They have a vast selection of evening dresses to choose from – so you are bound to find something right up your street.


Get the hairdo right

Hair is important when it comes to weddings.  If you have spent a lot of money on your outfit – the last thing you want is for the hairstyle to let you down.  Have a look in some of your favourite style magazines and see if you find something that you like.  You can then get a good idea of what you would like if you need to take to the hairdresser to get done – or else there are lots of online video tutorials to give you an idea as to how to do hair updos.  It may take a little practice to get it right, but you will normally find some detailed how to guides.



Buy some matching accessories

In order to finish your outfit off – you will definitely need some accessories to go with it.  It could be sunglasses or a statement piece of jewellery to finish things off, or that you buy a nice clutch bag where you can pop your makeup and purse in.  There are lots of great online deals too, so you don’t need to spend a fortune on it.  If you do choose an online store, have a quick search online to see if you can find any voucher or discount codes to see if you can get a bargain.

Go for nice summer shades for your nails

It could be that you are a creature of habit when it comes to the shades you go for when getting your nails done.  When it is for a special occasion for a wedding – don’t be afraid to go all out and get a brighter shade.  That way you will look incredibly summery – and make an impression.  A top tip is to get your toes done too if you are wearing open toed shoes and make sure they match your fingernails for the best look.



Get the makeup right

You can always afford to go a little bolder with your makeup when you are attending a wedding.  If you want things perfect then get your makeup done professionally.  The beauty therapists will be able to give you expert advice when it comes to what kind of makeup will go with your outfit and what suits you best.  You can also usually find some good online deals at local salons too if you book well enough in advance.  Alternatively, you could try experimenting on your own.  Again, there are some great tutorials you can find online where you can learn new affects and techniques.


If you’re getting yourself ready for a summer wedding then make sure you prepare well in advance, and don’t be afraid to treat yourself!
