What to Wear to a Summer Wedding

Craig and I have just returned from a dear friend's wedding just outside of Boston in the beautiful town of Marblehead, MA. I helped the bride choose her gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown from the incredible Glamour Closet in Los Angeles where you can purchase designer gowns at sample sale prices.

It was a magical weekend filled with so much love, joy, and of course lots of dancing. From the setting of ocean waves breaking against the cliffs to the details of the day and the surprise musical performances by multiple people in the wedding party, it was a night to be remembered for a very long time - one that allowed me to reminisce my own wedding as we approach our 5 year wedding anniversary. 

There are all kinds of different settings for weddings. What last weekend did is it made me think about the fashion of weddings and what to wear at each kind. My own wedding was on a plantation outside of Charleston, which would fall most along the lines of a country wedding, whereas my friend's Marblehead wedding was more of a beach wedding with a little bit of country thrown in. I chose to wear a long bright blue maxi dress with a cinched waist and my blue Dior platform pumps, which as you can see, allowed me to dance the night away:) 

Take a look below at a few examples.
