With summertime in full swing, your odds of being invited to an outdoor Summer wedding are pretty high. Brides typically plan their weddings during the summer to take advantage of the beautiful sunny weather, leading us ladies with the question; “What do I wear to this outdoor wedding?”

Well, if you have ever been invited to an outdoor Summer wedding, you know that the weather can sometimes be unpredictable. The bride may expect the sun to be shining, but she has no control over the humidity. In order to play it safe, stay cool by opting for sleeveless maxi dresses or jumpsuits. Silk is an excellent material to wear, as it keeps you feeling cool and looking classy for any occasion.  

 The color of your outfit is something that needs to be decided ASAP! Be sure to ask the bride in advance what color she is accenting her wedding with, you definitely don’t want to clash and look like one of the bridesmaids! Bright colors are great for summertime, but if you’re a wallflower-type girl, neutrals, pinks and purples are perfectly acceptable for any outdoor wedding outfit.

As for accessories, don’t worry too much with stacking bracelets, earrings, and necklaces. Pick your favorite necklace or bracelet and call it a day! Remember, it’s better to keep your jewelry pieces simple and classy. The focus should be on your dress or jumpsuit, not on the jewels! Your shoes should follow this rule as well. A basic neutral colored shoe will get the job done.

Keep your makeup simple and light for the occasion by choosing a tinted moisturizer or BB/CC cream your base. The IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream provides medium to full coverage all while feeling light as air on your skin. Plus, the CC creams adjust to your skin tone and range in shades from fair to deep.

For the eyes, save the smokey eye for your night out with the girls. Keep it outdoor wedding appropriate by applying a soft brown in the crease to define your eyes and add a pop of color on the lid. Add just a tad bit of edginess with some winged liner and tone down the overall look with a simple glossy pink lip.

Take a small purse or clutch with you for all your touch-up makeup essentials. You know your handbag is too big if it can fit over 3 items of makeup! The essentials are a mattifying powder, setting spray, and your lipstick of choice.
