A few weeks ago Germaine and I went to Baltimore for a wedding and I let him dress me.
I was going to wear something just as nice as he’d chosen but I’m glad I listened to him.
One lady at the wedding had a similar patterned dress to a summer dress I own and although I didn’t plan to wear it at the wedding I would have been uncomfortable having on a similar dress to someone else.
This wedding was held outdoors at the Baltimore Rowing Club. The weather was beautiful and the dress Germaine suggested was perfect.
This was my first outdoor Summer wedding and I want to share some tips I learned about what to wear to a summer wedding.
Should You Choose a Formal or Casual Dress?
I was going to wear a beautiful summer dress style perfect for women over 30 but my husband urged me to go with a more formal look.
I’m so glad I did. I think many of the women at the wedding were thinking what I was thinking.
The wedding is outdoors.
It’s going to be hot.
It only made sense to me to wear something with bold bright summer colors…
or a floral print but when I arrived I knew I’d made the right choice.
It was 92° the afternoon of the wedding and although I sweated during the ceremony along with everyone else, the material and color of my dress showed no evidence of it.
Because of the sleeveless cut there was no sign of underarm pit wetness and no sign of the big wet sweat stain that showed up on the back of some of the lighter colored dresses.
