Choosing a dress for your summer wedding

Choosing your wedding dress is a big moment in your wedding planning journey. It’s really important that when you’re shopping, you think about the season of your wedding as well as the style of your day. Here are some top tips if you’re about to start the search for your summer wedding dress:

  • On hot days, natural fabrics will keep you cool. Silk is actually one of the best fabrics for summer months as it’s breathable so will keep you cool.
  • Avoid dresses with lots of layers or gowns with super tight bodices. These will definitely make you feel the heat on warm days.
  • Similarly, avoid tight fitting gowns such as mermaid styles. Softer, looser styles will be much more comfortable.
  • If you really love the thought of a big skirt or a princess style gown, go for it! A soft hoop in the skirt of your dress will let the air circulate and keep you cool as well as making it easy for you to walk and move around.
  • Lace is a great choice for your summer wedding but just make sure that you opt for a light lace such as Chantilly rather than a heavier version which could be very warm.
  • Think about a short dress because these are definitely a cooler option on hot days. You’re less likely to overheat with a higher hemline.
  • The summer weather can be very unpredictable so opt for a dress that you can add layers too if you need to wrap up warm. Think about a bridal bolero, wrap or even a chunky cardigan or cool leather jacket.

The fit-and-flare styling of Honor from Willowby by Watters is ideal for summer. Unlined tulle and floral lace are the perfect combo for warmer days.
