Highsnobiety

Admittedly, this is a topic that's safe to part our audience into different camps: Either you're too young to be bothered about wedding just yet, you're so old you've already attended a lifetime's worth of weddings, or you're getting married yourself, which'd technically make for a different angle for an article entirety. Because here, we'll be suggesting how to dress as an attendee.

Depending on location, atmosphere, number of people, and relation to those inviting you, you'll want to hit a sartorial bull's eye without stealing either of the hosts' thunder, or morphing into the crowd of otherwise anonymous suit wearers.

This in mind, we've configured three head-to-toes in accord with three hypothetical personality types. Whether you recognize yourself in one, mix and match between all three, or feel merely inspired as to what you don't want to be caught at the reception in – the recommendations below should assist you in finding the perfect getup for your summer wedding appearance, one way or the other.

Summer Wedding Outfit: From Guest List to Best Dressed List

The Whimsically Romantic

There is an innate sense of occasion-appropriate romance to the blush tones of the following pieces. The floral shirt, the pink pants, the tan slippers balance the slightly dreamy and ethereal with the warm-weather nonchalance you'll want to feel comfortable during both the formal and the celebratory portions of the day.

The Stylishly Eccentric

Just short of upstaging the event's main characters, this ensemble is definitely for the more extroverted amongst you. The top's nearly brat shade of green is the forewarning of how you might end grabbing the mic to sing for the happy couple.

The draped trousers and pearly sandals underscore that confidence, through an eclecticism that helps the contrasting elements of this combination form a tasteful unity – sort of like when two people get married, huh? They say 'opposites attract' for a reason.

The Casually Luxurious

If neither of the above tickle your pickle, perhaps it's because you prefer something classic and understated? That, too, is possible, without having to resort to the boring and over-familiar.

To assemble a suit-like make-up of creamy, earthy staples, and finish them off with a sleek pair of shiny black loafers, can leave you looking dazzlingly dapper, sans pressure to sport the loudest items in the room. Attire so good you'll be the next person to say "I do".
