What To Wear | Afternoon Weddings

Fashion blogger I am not, but I sure did have a lot of fun pretending to be one! With a little extra time before the wedding this past Saturday, Gary snapped a few photos of my outfit and there were more outtakes than usable photos, but it was fun nonetheless! Last week I wore a bright dress to a late afternoon wedding and this weekend I opted for another brightly colored dress! I think it's important to remember that there are far more color options that just black to wear to weddings, especially with the season and time of day you're attending the wedding!

What To Wear To Afternoon Weddings

Dress | Wedges | Sunglasses | C.Wonder Bag (no longer available) | Anne Klein Fit Watch (On Sale!)

I find that most people, myself included are more perplexed with what to wear to early afternoon/late afternoon Summer weddings - especially if no form of dress is given on the invitation! I've rounded up a few wedding, bridal shower or even engagement party dresses that more than live up to any event! 




What are some of your favorite colors to wear to Summer weddings?

  4. Love! You look great and I love the other picks you chose too. Some people definitely need help in this department. There were a handful of wedding guests wearing stuff that was so weird/gaudy at my wedding that people still mention to me over a year later haha

  26. I love a fun, bright colored dress! I think this is the perfect way to go for a Summer wedding, especially with no dress given. It can read as dressy or less dressy depending on the event, and fits in perfectly!

  48. This was helpful. I have never been invited to an afternoon wedding, but I would have no idea what to wear. I always worry that simple dresses will look too casual, but more elaborate ones will look too night-time-ish.

  49. I love the bright colors ... & they look so fantastic on you!!!!

  69. Yes!!! I'm so glad you posted this. i'm not going to an afternoon wedding anytime soon however i went last year and it was so awkward to get ready for! my little black dress was too formal and my sundresses were too casual. wish i saw this last year, haha. but the kelly green lace is my favorite look here!

  74. Soooo many cute options! I just need more dresses in general- then I won't be at a loss come wedding season. Is the J. Simps dress red? I looked at it online and it looks more coral to me, and orange-ish in your pics! haha

  85. Biana you look great! Fashion blogger or not it's all about having fun! We felt really silly and awkward our first few "fashion" posts but quickly got over it. As long as you are confident and enjoy yourself that's all that matters. The outtakes are usually the best lol Love how you went bright for the wedding. Winks and Eyerolls
