Since June is Rue’s official “Wedding Month,” we thought we’d switch up our Weekly Wardrobes to reflect the different types of weddings you may find yourself attending. From indoors to out, fancy or casual- we’ll take care of the dress code and give you plenty of options along the way. This week, we’re heading outdoors!
First up- a beach wedding! If you find yourself so lucky as to score an invite to a ceremony in the sand, you’ll want to keep a casual and relaxed vibe. Sandals are an absolute must, as is a pair of chic sunglasses. For the dress, we suggest a lightweight material that is long enough to keep you covered as the ocean breeze rolls in. The Mara Hoffman number we chose is slightly sheer, so we recommend wearing a slip underneath. If you don’t want to fuss, Shopbop has an extensive selection of Mara Hoffman dresses in similar prints.
A garden wedding is typically a more polished event. It’s the perfect occasion to bring out your ladylike frocks and sparkly jewels. This posh J.Crew dress (currently on sale!) is fitted and feminine- and the heavier material (tweed) ensures it won’t fall victim to wind either. Pumps are appropriate for this type of gathering, but if you know it will be entirely on grass- you may want to get a pair of heel caps to keep from sinking into the ground.
If you haven’t RSVPd to either type of ceremony, leave a comment below with the type of wedding(s) you are attending! We’ll be sure to cover suitable sartorial options in the coming weeks!
