What To Wear To A Summer Wedding


Summer weddings are my favourite and I'm so glad I get to attend one more before the end of summer and even happier that it's my brother's wedding. When it came to selecting my outfit for this wedding, I leaned towards brighter dresses. 

However, after having no luck with sizing on two separate dresses that I ordered online, I decided to find something local. Luckily, I'm head over heels for this royal blue midi dress from Aritzia and so excited to wear it today for my brother's wedding. I really love royal blue, but for a summer wedding I wanted to wear something a bit lighter in colour. Luckily, I adore the fit of this dress and so it outweighs the colour. To finish off the look, I paired the dress with pink/antique gold drop earrings, floral pumps, gold bracelets and a fuschia clutch. 









I want to note that this was my first time ordering from Shein and most likely my last. Unfortunately, the off the shoulder ruffle dress that I ordered was nothing like the photo displayed. Shein didn't do a good job replicating the dress from ASOS, which was unfortunate because the dress was super cute. As for ASOS, I've ordered dresses from there before and they fit. The two dresses I ordered this time, which included the mint dress and yellow embellished floral dress were too small in the chest. It was the stretch of the fabric that that didn't allow me to zip up the dress. Oh well, better luck next time!

    Thank you for sharing your experience with Shein. I never ordered from there yet and most probably won't:)

    1. Thanks Yulia! Every time I go in Aritzia I always end up buying something. Ahh haha sometimes I try and stay away when I got to the mall as they pretty expensive. Yeah it was my first time ordering with Shein and was not impressed. Didn't really know what to expect actually, but glad that I could help out and avoid someone else being disappointed.

  2. I love the floral shoes, Ted Baker do a really similar version and now I'm super tempted to buy them! Your wedding style suggestions are impeccable by the way, I love the pale blue version :)

    1. Thanks Gabrielle! I use to have a similar pair back in the day, but I actually gave them away because I rarely wore them. When I saw these at Aldo I couldn't resist because I knew how gorgeous it would be paired with this royal blue dress. Hope ur having a great week! :-).

  3. What a great inspiration article! I doesn't go to a summer wedding, so i can't use it.
    I really love the pictures and i always hate that blue kind of color, but it looks really good on you and you made a beautiful combination with the shoes and the pink details!

  4. Gorgeous dress! Love that fuchsia clutch, too! Sorry to hear about your experience with Shein - that stinks. I've ordered from them a few times and have always had luck...but I have heard enough horror stories from other bloggers that have always made me a bit hesitant. Hope you have a wonderful time at your brother's wedding! How fun!

    1. Thanks lindsey! The wedding was so gorgeous. I'll have to share photos soon. As far as the dress from Shein, it may have just been that dress that I ordered. Maybe i'll consider ordering a top from there to give them another chance.. will see!

  5. Babe this is the perfect wedding look :) The blue really brings out your eyes. Its a shame the ASOS ones didn't fit, I often have problems with fit too when I shop online.

    1. Thanks Amanda! Yeah, it was my first time and well I may possibly order something else. Really depends on what the item is. Some people say they didn't have any problems and the items looked great. I may just not have had the best luck with this particular dress.

  10. You look beautiful! Love the pop of colors! I've never ordered from Shein but am curious about it...and a little afraid of it. That sucks you had a bad experience and it's making me think twice. I've also been hit or miss with ASOS sizing too...although I love ASOS. Have fun at your brother's wedding! XO

  14. That color is amazing! I love the unexpected cutout! Aritzia has so many amazing pieces, unfortunately they're always out of my price range unless there's a sale :/

    1. Thanks Angelina! The cut-out definitely makes this dress. However, I do agree with you as Aritizia is quite pricey, but since I couldn't find a dress anywhere I thought I would check what they have cause they don't seem to ever disappoint. Hope ur having a great week!
