Wedding Dress Style Tips to Keep You Cool in the Summer

Wedding Dress Style Tips to Keep You Cool in the Summer

Are you having a summer wedding? Then you already know that the weather is going to be warm- especially for weddings in Jacksonville, FL. 


For sunshine-loving brides, choosing a light, airy wedding dress is essential to keep you cool and comfortable when the temperatures rise. And no, you aren’t limited to thin silk- there’s plenty of gorgeous gowns to swoon over that embrace your vision!


We’ve compiled a list of our favorite styles that are perfect for summer weddings.

Go backless


Dare to bare in a sensual backless gown that invites the cool breeze to kiss your skin where sweat typically likes to show up first.


Choose an updo hairstyle that further accentuates the contours of your neck and shoulders, while also keeping you cool.


Remember that if you go with a buster shape you may need extra support or boning in the back of the dress to enhance the overall fit.

Go short


Cocktail-length dresses are in for summer and can be jazzed up with lace or embellishments- however you please for that extra glam while you show off the gams. 


Short dresses are practical because you can wear the same ensemble for the ceremony and reception, or if you want to sport a different look at night, just change into a short wedding dress and get ready to dance. 


This is also a great option if you’re having a beach wedding since you won’t have to worry about the hemline dragging through the sand and waves.

Go with long sleeves


YES, you can wear long sleeves for your summer wedding. Remember- when it comes to hot weather, it’s not so much the style as it is the fabric that can help keep you cool. 


If you’ve always dreamed of sleeves, opt for sheer fabric. It’s breathable, lightweight, and you can decorate with floral appliques to make your sleeves even more striking. 


Go with off-the-shoulder


Now’s the time to show off your inner beach boho with off-the-shoulder styles. An open neckline and bare shoulders help brides feel cool without being too covered up with fabric. 


There are plenty of styles to choose from also, such as draped sleeves, detachable cuffs, or puff sleeves.
