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.
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.
Should You Wear Heels or Flats?
I decided to wear heels because my husband wanted me to. He says I have great legs and thinks heels are what grown women wear.
Every part of me wanted to wear the summery dress and cute bling-ed out sandals. I even had the outfits all picked out as I showed you above.
Even though my heels sunk into the grass as Germaine and I chatted with other guest before the wedding I didn’t regret my choice. Heels make me stand up tall and walk slower. On top of that, they looked great with this dress.
What kind of purse?
I always go small on purses when going to a wedding. There is only so much space at the guest table and I hate putting my purse on the floor.
It’s easier to forget it when it’s time to go. Out of sight, out of mind right?!?
