Choosing the Right Summer Wedding Gown

For brides tying the knot outdoors during the warmer months, selecting a summer wedding dress that keeps you cool and comfortable is crucial for fully enjoying and remaining present on the big day. Consider a variety of lightweight fabrics, such as chiffon, delicate laces, and organza, that offer breathability and movement. Structural elements such as sheer bodices, slits, and open backs may also be beneficial. Thankfully, traditional bridal hues, such as white, ivory, champagne, and blush, also contribute to beating the summer heat.

While all bridal silhouettes are suitable for a summer wedding, gowns that offer additional mobility and breathability are certainly best for beating the heat. We recommend considering silhouettes such as A-line or sheath gowns, as they typically consist of less fabric and volume without causing too much restriction. Best of all, both of these silhouettes accentuate all body types and naturally elongate any frame beautifully.

From floral-inspired three-dimensional appliqués and delicate illusion to minimalist designs, there are a variety of emerging bridal trends that cater to summer nuptials. Elements that have been adored for decades, such as open backs, free-flowing skirts, and fine laces are also ideal for summer wedding dresses. Whether it speaks to traditional style or is fresh off the runway, bridal designers are constantly creating new designs that are perfect for the summer bride.

Pnina Tornai, Verdin Bridal, All Who Wander, Essense of Australia, and Anna Campbell are just a few of our world renowned designers who have crafted an unparalleled selection of summer wedding dresses thanks to their romantic essence and lightweight fabrics.

While traditional floor-length gowns are certainly most popular amongst all brides alike, including those tying knot in the summer, shorter hem lengths are also suitable options. Tea-length or even mini dresses provide optimal comfort and breathability especially during the warmer months. If you are committed to wearing a floor-length gown, possibly incorporate a slit to increase air flow. Similarly, consider open necklines, such as strapless or sleeveless styles, to ensure that you are as cool as possible while walking down the aisle.
