I really like going to weddings. I’ve always enjoyed getting dressed up and celebrating people in love. But one thing that’s hard about going to weddings is figuring out what to wear. You want to look nice, but you don’t want to overshadow the bride. You want to dress up, but you don’t want to be overdressed. For summer weddings, it can be even more challenging because summer is such a casual season.

But you can dress casually and still be wedding appropriate. Depending on how formal the wedding is, you can get away with wearing a cute summer dress that has just enough glam. Check out these ones that are perfect for all the weddings you have to attend this summer.

1. Connected Apparel Lace Asymmetrical Popover Dress

This double layer dress is feminine and elegant. It’s available in a light blush color or navy, so you can choose which works best for your coloring. Wear it with a pair of casual metallic sandals for a fun pop of shine, and add a long coordinating necklace for extra dazzle.

Head over to Kohl’s to get this pretty piece.

2. Nanette Lepore Lace Paneled Drop Waist Dress

With the bright yellow color and detailed design, this dress doesn’t need any accessories. The summery hue and lace paneled skirt give it a bold, youthful look that is still classy. Throw on your favorite pair of heels with this and you’re good to go!

Snatch this vibrant dress up from The Real Real.

3. SL Fashions Layered Shift Dress

This layered chiffon shift dress is fun and sexy. The halter style beaded neckline draws attention to the shoulders and the draped front gives the dress extra character. It’s available in fuchsia and black, but I suggest not wearing black to a wedding- especially in the summer. Throw on a pair of sassy heels that match the beaded neckline for a pulled together look.

You can find this bold beauty at Macy’s.

4. Ralph Lauren Charmeuse Shift Dress

If you’re attending a summer wedding that is semi-formal or casual, this dress is a great choice. The design is simple, but you could easily dress it up with a gold belt, heels and jewelry. The chocolate color would work well for women with a warm color palette, and you could definitely wear this dress again for other occasions.

Stop by Macy’s to pick yourself up this versatile piece.

5. Halston Heritage Embellished Pleated Dress

The one shoulder look is a hot trend right now, and the pleated detailing makes this dress really fun. I love the pink color and the shoulder embellishment. You could wear this with a few simple pieces of jewelry, or do without. A sparkly choker would add an element of elegance, and coordinating heel sandals would really make you shine.

Pick up this pleated piece at The Real Real.
