If you've found yourself on the receiving end of a "casual" wedding invite, you're likely wondering, "What the heck do I wear?!". Yes, the rules have evolved in terms of what is appropriate to witness "I dos" in, but a casual wedding can still feel like a humdinger. First of all, how casual is casual? Is a dress required? If so, do cotton or linen fabrics fly? What about a shorter hemline? So. Many. Questions.
This time of year, a laid-back wedding dress code is an opportunity to explore all those summery dresses you've been tempted by, but haven't quite known where or when to wear them. Silhouettes with puffy sleeves and ruffles feel so romantic, yet relaxed with simple heels or metallic sandals. Punchy prints and bright colors are festive and fun, but feel decidedly low-key in easy fabrics like cotton or linen with raffia mules or so-now naked sandals to finish. If you can't resist the drama of a maxi silhouette, opt for a natural beauty look to avoid feeling fussy or overdone.
