With so many styles and options to choose from, there is a summer wedding dress for every bride. In this blog, we’ll guide you through some of our favorite summer wedding dresses and share tips on how to find the right one for your big day. So, let’s dive in and make your dream summer wedding a reality! 

What is a Summer Wedding Dress? 

The good news is that any wedding dress can be worn in the summer. However, summer wedding dresses are typically made of light and airy fabrics and give off a summer vibe. When it comes to details, think florals, low backs or strapless necklines. 

What are the Best Silhouettes/Fabrics for a Summer Wedding Dress? 

A summer bridal gown can come in any silhouette, but soft A-lines, streamlined sheaths and fit-and-flare styles are common. Popular wedding dress fabrics include lace, tulle, organza or chiffon for a light and breezy look. White and ivory are classic wedding dress colors for a summer wedding, however you can choose a dress with a pop of color for a fun and whimsical summer look.

Indoor vs. Outdoor Summer Weddings 

Where your summer wedding will take place is a major factor when deciding which dress to choose. For an indoor wedding, you can opt for a gown made in a heavier fabric than you would choose for an outdoor soiree.  

If you’re having a destination wedding, you may want a gown that travels easily and is more streamlined. Our True Crew stylists suggest a sheath, fit-and-flare or A-line style for this scenario.  

For an outdoor summer wedding, consider the usual temperature of where you are getting married and the type of setting it will be. It’s important to consider the ease of movement and the weight of the fabric. When looking at outdoor wedding dresses, comfort and feeling fresh all day is key.  

A big ballgown may not work well on the beach, or a dramatic cathedral train may be too much at a vineyard. The True crew has a few tips and tricks on how to choose a beach wedding dress on our blog.

How to Accessorize a Summer Wedding Dress 

Regarding accessorizing summer wedding dresses, the True Crew suggests keeping things light and airy! Remember to consider where you’re getting married. A long cathedral veil may be too much for a beach but stunning for an indoor affair!  

Sparkling crystals, sequins and beading that glimmers in the sunlight are a stunning option. Floral and nature-inspired details are some of their favorite design elements to include when it comes to your summer wedding day accessories.  

When choosing your shoes, consider a flat or sneakers if you’re getting married on uneven ground. A wedge is a good option if you’re getting married on grass, so you don’t sink! For the beach, you can opt for flat sandals or go completely barefoot. Just remember, comfort is key!
