If you’re attending a summer wedding in Connecticut this year, you may be wondering what you should wear. What’s acceptable, expected, and trending? We’ve got you covered. Here is a list of some top choices to have on hand as you plan your wedding guest outfits for summer 2022.
Consider the Details
One of the first things you want to consider when planning what to wear to a summer wedding is the important details. What time of day is the wedding? Is it indoors (air-conditioned space) or outside (hot summer sun). Will there be a certain theme? Is it a more upscale setting or something casual? Once you have an idea of these specifics you can start to make choices on the material, sleeve length, and even style of dress or attire you choose. Important things to keep in mind are: choosing colors that don’t match or clash with the rest of the wedding party and avoiding a white dress in honor of the bride’s day.
2022 Dress Trends
Florals, lace, and nude, muted tones have made their way to the trending list again in dress wear. Take this as a great cue for what you should wear to be stylish at an upcoming event. Knee-length pencil slits, delicate lace fabrics, and the perfect feminine details are all having a moment right now. Summer is a great time to choose boho-chic styles and light, satin, airy fabrics. Off-the-shoulder and halter neck tie styles are also big and a style worth considering for formal and casual dress options.
Vintage & Classic Always Win
If you’re unsure exactly what you should do for your wedding outfit style, a good rule of thumb for a summer wedding is to opt for a classic or vintage look. These are always a great choice because they can be both casual and high end and they never go out of style.
