Gorgeous Floral Dresses for Summer Wedding Guests

Many brides choose to get married in the summer. This is the season for spending time out in nature and many young couples plan weddings at outdoor venues. Perhaps your best friend wants to get married in a garden, your cousin has her heart set on a rooftop restaurant and your college roommate wants to get married out on her parent’s farm. No matter the venue you’ll need to find something to wear for each and every one of these events.

Outdoor weddings take a little more thought than your standard reception hall. You’ll need to take the weather into account. It might be warm in the day and cold at night. It might be exceptionally breezy or downright hot and miserable. You’ll also need to put a little extra consideration into your footwear. Super steep high-heeled shoes are probably not a good idea in grass and sand. Consider searching for dainty flats that can be worn over rough terrain.

This summer look for dresses with fun floral patterns that remind you of the bright blossoms found in nature. If you are looking for a little fashion inspiration check out the list of floral dresses below. They can all be found on sale at Nordstrom Rack.
