Summer Wedding Dress Guide: Perfect Guest Outfits for Every Venue

Summer Wedding Dress Guide: Perfect Guest Outfits for Every Venue

Summer weddings are magical, but finding the perfect guest outfit can be a challenge. Whether you're attending a beachfront ceremony or a chic city reception, choosing the right dress that combines comfort, style, and venue appropriateness, all while staying timeless and on trend is a challenge. 

Beach Weddings: Elegantly Airy

Opt for light, airy fabrics and cuts that keep you cool under the sun. Pastel shades like our lavender or vibrant tropical hues are perfect for beach settings. Consider midi or maxi dresses that are easy to move in and can handle a breeze.

Garden Weddings: Delicate and playful

Whilst floral dresses are synonymous with garden weddings, stand out with a flowing pastel from our limited drop to complement the natural scenery. Our custom made A-line dresses work beautifully for outdoor settings.

Country Weddings: Rustic Refinement

For a country wedding, think rustic and elegant. Soft, muted colours work well. Opt for dresses with flowing skirts that echo the rustic vibe of a barn or countryside setting. Our burnt orange asymmetric halter is the perfect complimentary colour and style for a countryside wedding. 

City Weddings: Chic and Sophisticated

For a city celebration, the only excuse you need to choose a tailored cocktail dress or black tie gown. A floor-length dress with a thigh slit in timeless black with a beautiful bow tie neck and deep backless structure  will make you stand out in an urban landscape.

Choosing Your Perfect Dress with Altera

  • Venue Appropriate: Tailor your choice based on the wedding’s location—lighter colours for daytime and outdoors, more formal styles for evening.
  • Weather Ready: Consider a stylish shawl or bolero for cooler evenings.
  • Accessorise Thoughtfully: Complement your custom dress with subtle jewellery and a chic clutch
