What to Wear to a Beach Wedding: The Perfect Summer Dress

I bought this dress to wear to a wedding in September then went with something else when I realised the wedding would go until the night time. This is the perfect summer wedding dress to wear to an outdoor wedding, bonus points if your wedding is in a garden setting or on the beach!

By now you know I am totally in love with anything off the shoulder and this dress fits perfectly in with the off-shoulder trend. It has a slip underneath it so you won’t feel overexposed in the sunlight and the material isn’t see-through.

Since I did purchase it from Amazon and their sizing can be tricky when the clothing is sourced in China, I bought the biggest size they had at the time which is a 2x. My arms are big and can easily get pinched in close-fitting sleeves.

I love the little flirty sleeves and the split on the front of the dress making it airy and breezy on a hot summer wedding day.

What do you wear to a summer casual outdoor wedding? This dress!

It is the perfect length for a beachy wedding since the hem of the dress won’t be pulling too much in the sand thanks to the high-low design. Beach wedding attire for female guests can be very tricky, should you go formal? But it’s on a beach! This dress does casual but wedding very well.

If it’s a beach wedding then there’s no need for heels. This red sandal paired perfectly with the dress and would be great on the beach! It’s handmade by one of my favourite local shoe designers however this sandal would be perfect as well, picking up on the red floral design of the dress.

I bet you didn’t see that coming! The back is undoubtedly my favourite part of the dress. Adds a little sexy to an already very pretty floral feminine flirty dress.
