The question on what to wear to weddings is one I get a lot. I shared some general tips a few weeks ago here in case you missed it and wanted to share another approach. From beaches to cathedrals, weddings can be all over the place and so can the dress code. For a day wedding you can usually get away with more casual attire.

For her, it’s the perfect opportunity to wear a maxi sun dress in a bright color or bold pattern (the dress I’m wearing today is under a $100). I love the simple pleating detail on this maxi dress which adds a perfect amount of elegance for a day wedding and the lightweight material makes it ideal for a warm summer day. A crochet lace dress is another great option for a day wedding – the material is a casual take on a more black-tie appropriate lace but still has the same feminine effect. A nude heeled sandal, fun print clutch, and feminine accessories finish it off perfectly.

For him, a day wedding is a great excuse to trade in his slacks for dark-wash denim and focus on other details like a sharp, slim fitting blazer (this one is perfect for summer) and dress shoes (this pair under $50) that make a statement on their own. Another way to balance out the casual effect of denim for a day wedding is with a printed pocket square (love this print). You can find more of Cody’s tips for wearing a pocket square on Hello His.

    I love this dress! It would be perfect for a relaxed outside wedding. Unfortunately all the dresses I attend are so formal I can’t get away with something like that. You two look amazing!
