Read on for some outfit inspiration.

What to Wear to a Summer Wedding

The Simple Shift

Shift dresses can be your saviour in the hot Australian Summer months and are perfect to take you all the way through a day-to-night Summer wedding. They look polished, stylish and not too over-the-top while being super comfortable to wear!

Shift dresses in bright, vibrant colours or with soft lace detailing can make a regular shift dress really stand out from the crowd – for summer, look for soft blues or creams.


The Ever-Versatile Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are also a comfortable choice, especially for a daytime garden wedding in summer. You can look for unique elements on your maxi, such as cute cap sleeves or cut-out detailing. Maxi dresses look great in bold, bohemian patterns and tones, bringing colour and life to the garden wedding party. If you want to dress up a maxi dress for more formal occasions, add some bold statement earrings and heels with an evening clutch.


Preppy Summer Wedding – a Vintage-Inspired Dress

If you’re not so keen on the flowing boho trend for summer, why not embrace the fit-and-flare shape in 1950s style? This classic dress shape is flattering for all bodies. You can really play up the vintage vibe by choosing contrast nautical shades for a beachfront or seaside wedding.


Colourful Pantsuit

For a unique and fresh statement on Summer weddings, be bold and embrace the pantsuit or jumpsuit trend. Choose your suit in a bright, vibrant colour rather than any dark shades, and add feminine touched with earrings and heels. You’ll look fresh and bold and right on-trend, whether the wedding is day or night.
