Summer Wedding Tips

For many people summer is the perfect time to hold a wedding. Flowers are still in bloom, friends and family are on vacation, and people are enjoying the longer days. Although summer can be a cheerful time to hold a wedding, the heat can make it difficult to dress appropriately while still enjoying the wedding. Wool suits and long dresses are uncomfortable in the summer heat. The key to dressing for a summer wedding is adapting your choice of formal clothing to the weather.


A white cotton shirt worn with a black or navy suit is acceptable for a summer wedding. Some men also choose to dress in cream colored tuxedos or suits. This is particularly appropriate for beach weddings or weddings that take place in a very warm place.


Brides should choose a lightweight and thin fabric for their wedding dresses to keep cool during the ceremony. Chiffon, lace, crepe, tulle and georgette are suitable fabrics for a summer wedding dress. A shorter dress will also be more comfortable in the summer heat. A tea length wedding dress that ends between the knee and mid-calf is a good length.

Male Guests

Male guests can come to the wedding wearing a simple blazer and dress pants and tie. For an outdoor wedding during the summertime, men can leave the jacket and dress in a pair of slacks, dress shirt and tie.

Female Guests

Women can choose from a wide variety of colors for the wedding, but should leave white for the bride. Light, summery dresses are best, since they will keep you comfortable and reflect the season.
