My sister is getting married this week! I am actually writing this post as I sit at the airport (5am flights are seriously the worst). I’ll be meeting up with my other sister and her boyfriend at the airport, since my flight lands an hour before their’s. That’ll give me plenty of time to freshen up in the Military Officers Lounge in the airport. Perks of being married to an Air force Doctor! You get to use your own private bathroom, complementary food and beverages! It’s the best when you have to be at the airport at 5 A.M.
It is crazy to me to think that my sisters and I (we are triplets, if you didn’t know) are getting older and starting our own families! Out of the three of us, I was the first one to tie the knot and now a few years later we have another family wedding! With several different weddings on the books for this year, a lot of questions I get asked are especially around summer wedding attire. What to wear this season as a wedding guest? It all really depends on the wedding; whether it’s casual, formal, black or white tie, outdoor or inside, etc. I would always rather be a little over dressed than under dresses but it’s never comfortable being the one that’s completely out of place. I always check with the bride or other girlfriends attending to see what they’re wearing to gauge my selections. I usually opt for some sort of dress in a feminine silhouette and pick my shoes and accessories depending on location.
This Yumi Kim maxi dress is a perfect example of my go-to for a more relaxed outdoor wedding. It’s sweet and feminine but comfortable (for dancing) and lightweight (for warmer weather). I’ve linked to a handful of similar floral options at the end of the post, but a few favorites include this ruffle maxi dress, this green lace fitted number and this blush ruffle dress. Instead of my typical nude heel, like these, I love this Sergio Rossi option that’s quite similar but has a thicker heel so that it’s much more functional for walking on grass or different grounds. I keep my jewelry to a minimal, so that I don’t take away the attention from the bride.
This time of year always brings back memories of planning our own wedding (I can’t believe it’s almost been four years!). We were in the waiting period at this point since everything was planned and ready (aside from small details), it just needed to all be executed.
