As the summer season rolls in, so too does the promise of seasonal weddings. That’s why floral frocks are the perfect way to stay cool and stylish while celebrating your friends and family’s big day. If you’re looking to be the best dressed guest at any summer wedding, these timeless frocks make for the ideal wedding attire: florals for days!
1. Summer Wedding Beauty: Fabulous Floral Frocks
Summer weddings are all about delicate femininity and expression of joy. A beautifully tailored floral dress is a timeless pick that can help you look and feel your best. While stunning pastel hues are always a winning option, don’t be afraid to go bold and opt for strong colors and bold prints.
To nail the perfect summer wedding guest look, look for pieces that offer a sophisticated take on pretty florals. A floor-length gown draws the eye down for a lengthening and slenderizing effect. Keep it simple with a single hue while accessorizing with statement jewelry. Or why not go all out and opt for a layered dress in contrasting prints and textures?
Here are our key tips to accessorizing your floral ensemble:
- Opt for a pair of delicate shoes in soft satin, organza, silk or patent leather.
- Keep your jewelry low-key as to let the dress take center stage, such as drop earrings or a petite brooch.
- Layer a bolero or tailored cropped blazer over your dress.
- Play with unexpected details such as a quilted belt bag for a distinctive look.
It’s best to discreetly match your bolero, belt or bag to the dominant hue of your dress. To empower your look, consider adding an over-sized cloche hat and some chic sunglasses. Make sure to have your dress hemmed and tailored to fit you like a glove – don’t underestimate the power of a perfectly tailored ensemble.
2. All the Blooms: Style Tips for Perfect Pickings
You’ve chosen the perfect florist and made your way into the magical world of colorful blooms. You’re ready to pick the perfect stems for your home, but you want the selected selection to look stunning on your shelves, dressers, or mantels – so what’s the secret to making sure you don’t waste precious petals? Follow these easy Style Tips for Perfect Pickings!
Mix It Up! Don’t be afraid to play around with different types of flowers. View the petals as a fun way to express your creativity. Try arranging variously-hued hues of peonies, lush orchids, and vibrant daisies in one stunning centerpiece, or for a quieter contrast, opt for deeper shades of roses and mums.
Accentuate with Greenery Don’t forget to use foliage for extra, eye-catching texture. Veery runs of ferns, mixed foliage, and lush pads of eucalyptus act as a beautiful frame to your blooms. Plus, these extra green pieces are often totally free at your local florist.
Play with Containers From teacups to vases and hanging baskets, don’t forget to dress up your displays accordingly. Some flowers even benefit from the extra colored accent of certain containers.
- Match the container to your décor, like a light-coloured teapot for a cottage-style aesthetic.
- Take the aesthetic in a bolder direction with a brightly coloured vase for a tropical arrangement.
- Keep it simple with an elegant and light effect using a clear glass vase.
Keep Freshness in Mind Finally, don’t forget to keep store your buds appropriately. Be sure to follow your florist’s care instructions to maintain the perfect freshness. And don’t worry: if you keep an eye on your flowers they will last longer than you expect!
3. Garden-Inspired Glamour: Create Chic Floral Ensembles
It’s no surprise that flowers have been a source of beauty since the beginning of time—they’re the perfect way to bring a glamourous edge to even the most casual ensemble. Whether you’re attending a classy garden party, taking a stroll through a park or simply looking for creative new ways to wear your florals, these ideas should spark some inspiration.
Incorporate Floral Prints
Amp up the volume of any wardrobe with floral prints. Match a boldly printed two-piece with a pair of kitten heels, or belt a colorful maxi skirt and top with a pair of statement sandals. For a cute take, go for a floral romper and accessorize with a wide-brimmed hat and sandals for a boho-inspired look.
Accessorize with Garden-Friendly Blooms
Accessorize with garden-friendly blooms to give a dainty romantic touch to any outfit. A delicate head band or crown featuring sprays of baby’s breath or a half-up, half-down bun with a rose tucked behind the ear will surely complete any look with some garden-inspired glamour. A floral necklace or bracelet can also be used as a beautiful accent piece to add some sparkle to your ensemble.
Think Like a Preppy Gardener
A preppy gardener wouldn’t be seen without her signature look—so why not delve into the garden world and pull some inspiration this way? From cute twill shorts and denim skirts to breezy sundresses and floral blouses, create a look that is equal parts prim and fabulous. And don’t forget the summery layered outfits—pairing a dainty top with a light cotton skirt and accessories like a straw hat and floral hairtie will have you ready for an afternoon of sunny fun.
