Wedding Wednesday: What To Wear To A Summer Soiree

(Via Izak Zenou)

June starts the "official" Wedding Season. The June brides are mailing their invitations as I type, and I have already received a beautiful one.  My first thought, besides feeling honored to be invited, was "What will I wear?" If you have been to a wedding lately, you know that any optional dress code is interpreted very loosely. I have been shocked to see women in cotton church dresses or men without ties.  Today, I hope to inspire you to gussy up a bit in something wedding worthy.

The Garden Party Daytime Reception

Kate Spade 
Though this dress is satin, I think it is still perfect for a garden party. Style it as shown to make it a touch less dressy. The pink really pops when paired with black accessories. The clutch is Kate's Wedding Belles Book Clutch and can be found at Zappos. Love it!
Neiman Marcus

Ted Baker Nude Oil Painting
Floral Dress
Wonderful details like inverted pleats and a notched collar make this feminine frock fabulous for an afternoon affair.
Nordstrom's or Cusp

Oscar de La Renta Appliqued
Tulle Midi Skirt
If you want to be best dressed, this skirt is for you!
Moda Operandi

Floral Strapless Dress
This number is garden party perfect!
Lord and Taylor

Tadashi Shoji
V-Neck Tulle Trim Dress
With a touch of whimsy, this dress shows that you acknowledge the special event. Consider it in Navy, but also available in black. Under $200. 

Virgos Lounge Embellished Midi 
With Cowl Back
A fabulous dress for those (like me) that like to wear a sleeve. See this sexy and sophisticated number on the catwalk at

Cedric Charlier Sleeveless Dress
Another navy choice that is blended with black and cream for a sophisticated look.  See how good you will look moving on the dance floor in a quick video at

Asymmetrical Jumpsuit
A jumpsuit is perfectly fine for a fun wedding reception.  This one in shiny satin is so pretty in pink!

Tadashi Shoji Embroidered Gown
Love this sleek and feminine dress in a delicious dove grey. It is simple yet very fresh looking for Spring and Summer. Imagine it in candlelight.

Herve Leger Off The Shoulder Dress
Simple but stunning! Pair this body conscious dress with fabulous earrings and a terrific shoe (better than what is shown)
Bergdorf Goodman

Kimono Dress 
With Floral Sequin Trim
This dress looks great coming and even better going.  At under $125 it is a real buy.  You have to see it on the runway in action!
