If there is a stack of invites piling up on your desk, filing your inbox or lining your fridge then you already know that the wedding season is here. Once you have RSVP'd "yes" and booked your stay, it is time to figure out what you are going to wear. After the engagement party, bridal shower and rehearsal dinner is the wedding. Finding the perfect dress to wear as a wedding guest can sometimes feel tricky. Not only do we want to find that "perfect dress" but let's be honest dancing the night away in a dress that is too tight or creeps up all night so you spend all your time tugging it back down, does not sound like fun. When looking for a boutique dress for a special occasion especially one as important as a wedding, there are three important attributes that make up the ultimate wedding guest outfit.
1. Match the dress to the essence or vibe of the wedding.
2. Comfort, comfort, comfort...
3. Select a unique dress that makes you feel beautiful!

Summer is definitely the peak season for weddings, so say "Yes to the dress" in Ledyz Fashions Boutique summer boutique wedding guest dresses. Location, location, location is the key when it comes to choosing a boutique summer dresses for wedding guests. Church weddings do generally mean that you want to choose a dress style that is more modest. Covered shoulders and midi length or knee-length or longer hemlines. To stay cool choose lightweight fabrics and non-restrictive silhouettes. Looking for a safe yet chic option? Floral wedding guest dresses are always a chic option for traditional ceremonies. Outdoor and beach wedding guest dresses can be more forgiving depending on the setting and temperature. Strappy necklines and shorter hemlines will have you looking like the best-dressed guest!

3. Wedding Outfits For Mothers
The pressure is even greater when it is your son or daughter that is going to be walking down the aisle. The protocol once dictated that the mother of the bride would purchase her outfit first then that would then dictate what the mother of the groom would wear. Unless the bride states otherwise, cream, white and ivory should always be avoided for the mother of the bride and mother of the groom. All black is also frowned upon as no one is in mourning. Consult the bride when it comes to choosing a color. Some brides like the mothers to coordinate with their bridesmaids, others prefer for the mothers to others to contrast each other, and some have no preference.
4. Bridesmaid Dresses
Choosing bridesmaid dresses can be a bit tricky at times. From ensuring that all your gals love the dress style to make sure that they complement the rest of the wedding. At Ledyz Fashions the choices are endless and you will find everything from classic maxi dresses to short contemporary style dresses. To accommodate different body types and personal tastes is to have everyone in the same color but a different style of dress. When it comes to choosing the colors that the bridal party should wear, consider skin tones and remember you want the bridesmaids and the groomsmen to complement each other. As with all that are attending the wedding, choose dress styles that are appropriate for the location. Plunging necklines are not the best choice for traditional church weddings and heavy long dresses are not a great choice for beach weddings.
5. What To Wear To A Wedding Reception
Does your invite read evening-only? When you are only attending the wedding reception finding a dress will be a bit easier. However, be sure to check your invitation for the wedding reception dress code which will guide you on the style of dress to choose. For black-tie dress code, a long formal gown or cocktail dresses are acceptable dress style choices.

Choose a silhouette that is not too tight or restrictive and shoes that you can dance the night away in. White is still frowned upon wearing, but any other color including black is acceptable!

Choose a dress with gorgeous details like sheer sleeves, lace cutouts and floral print for the perfect blend of style and romance. Add a modern elegant touch with rose gold accessories.
