Summer Weddings

Suzanne Mauro

While weddings have come to be an inevitable part of the summer social calendar, one is always searching for that perfect guest wedding dress. The right dress has the power to transform and serve as a marker for many of life's great events. So it is important to get it right. So here is a quick guide for wedding guest attire:

Wear something feminine and appropriate, out of respect for your hosts. Stay away from clubwear and overly sexy clothing (see-through, very short, etc). If you have to ask if it's appropriate, it probably isn't.

Stay away from white, it competes with the bride. Try a print or a solid bold color. It not only looks great, but photographs well.

Don't worry about wearing the same colors as the bridesmaids or mothers. You cannot possibly coordinate with everyone in the wedding party.

Stay away from black and overly sequined dresses for daytime weddings. It will make you look overdressed.

Don't be afraid to add ornate jewelry, it will always make a statement.

We love these Hale Bob dresses, $208.00, available at One Brilliant.


Your presence at the ceremony and reception is a wonderful way to support the two people who want you to share their happy moment. So enjoy!


A special thank you to my two lovely models, the beauteous Megann & Paula Goldberg.
