Weddings are special occasions... and stressful ones, especially when it comes to finding the right dress for the event. Summer weddings can range in formality from a black-tie affair to a sundress and sandals outing. Here are some outfit ideas that cover the scope of fashion do's and don'ts that will have you covered this wedding season. 

Black Tie

Xscape Floral Print Brocade Strapless Gown - $299

You'll be a classic beauty in Xscape's strapless brocade gown with a flattering A-Line silhouette. The dress is shortned to fall just above the ankles, perfect to show off a pair of cute heels. 

Sam Edelman Ariella Strappy Sandal Heel -$100

This classic heel has a minimal design that is sophisticated and chic. The gunmetal metallic shade is a perfect pairing with the shiny brocade gown. They're made of premium suede leather and are comfortable and cute on the feet.   

Sterling Silver Crystal Post Earrings - $28

These dazzling studs won't distract from the eye-catching dress, but rather compliment the metallic flower print of the gown. Leave the neck bare and do a pretty updo for your hair to show off the simplistic, elegant neckline of the dress. 




Calvin Klein One-Shoulder Ruffle Dress - $149

Calvin Klein has delivered us the perfect wedding guest dress. This piece is on trend with its one-shoulder design and flowing ruffled layer. A slit up the leg adds a sleek touch to the dress while allowing you to show off those tanned summer legs

Stuart Weitzman Nearly Nude Leather Sandals - $398

Everyone needs this show in their closet. The block heel is not only fashionable but adds stability and comfort to the shoe. They blend into your leg to make them appear longer and keep the interest on the beautiful red hue of the dress. 

Panacea Layered Chain Necklace - $36

Gold jewelry pairs perfectly with this red dress. Layered necklaces are an easy way to add some delicate bling to any look. This peice from Panacea is affordable and versatile and it's able to be dressed up or down.


Revolve Mali Dress - $140

This smocked dress screams summer with  its laid-back simplicity and bohemian vibe. Perfect for a casual backyard or beach wedding, this flowy mini dress can keep up all day in the heat of the sunlight- and the dancefloor!

Tiered Shell Earrings - $10

Shell earrings are all the rage this summer, and for good reason. They're the ultimate summertime accessory. They have all the shine without the heavy tugging on your ears that usually comes with a pair of statement earrings. 

Citta’ Di Milano Sandals - $234

Another summer staple, chunky, block-heeled sandals are the perfect show to throw on for a wedding where you might be doing some walking on grass, sand anything! 

All of these pieces are available on Brick & Portal to help you throw together that perfect wedding guest ensemble!
