Whether you are invited to a traditional wedding, organized in a mansion between the hills, at an atypical ceremony, on a dreamlike beach, we came out with four different outfits that you can try this summer.
Traditionally, two colours are excluded from the list of those recommended to be worn at a wedding: white and black. White and its derivatives (cream, white-champagne, ivory white) are reserved for the bride, and black is considered too sober and funerary, for the special occasions during the summer. Exceptionally, for an urban day ceremony, black becomes a modern and sophisticated choice – provided that the pieces chosen have special cuts and textures.
For example, instead of choosing a classic dress, choose a black lace skirt combined with a silk veil black top (or lace), over which you can wear a white suit jacket, strapped over the waist with a golden belt. If you think in perspective and beyond the dance floor, you will be able to integrate these pieces into your daily wardrobe, weekly and / or during the weekend. Obviously, add to the outfit accessories with personality.

Black lace dress Nissa: 699 lei
You can’t fail if you choose a floral print dress (or a blouse embellished with flowers combined with an elegant skirt), especially when the invitation is for a classic wedding. If your tastes turn to modern, you should still follow the dress code, but choose a pattern with unexpected details: an asymmetric seam, 3D floral appliques or a bold print. Look for stylish and simple accessories.
If you prefer a truly classic outfit, look for a midi length dress for the ceremony, and a very long one for the evening party.

The exotic or beach wedding
This is the type of event where the outfit should be both elegant, colourful and have a relaxed, vacation feeling. Under no circumstances, wear a classic suit jacket or an ultra-elegant dress, with sequins or crystals. The perfect choice is a flowing dress, in a precious colour, maybe with a bare shoulder or with a low-cut back. Tighten your hair in a light bun and add very large, golden earrings.

Golden maxi dress Nissa: 799.00 lei
Who says you have to wear a dress? Break the traditional patterns and choose either an elegant jumpsuit or two pieces – like a pair of loose trousers, a luxurious fabric and a metallic fabric top (or sequin). You can wear a silk suit jacket on top, from a fluid material.
