What To Wear To A Garden Wedding

A garden is a popular scene for a wedding. Most couples prefer outdoor weddings because of the nice weather, gorgeous scenery, and spectacular photo ops. Garden weddings are especially breath taking as you’re surrounded by beautiful flowers and greenery. Garden weddings can be held at numerous types of venues, from wineries and vineyards to estates and farm stays. This leads us to believe that there are a number of different factors to consider when choosing your wedding guest look for a garden dress code, and that considering the venue is of high importance. The weather and time of year is also an important factor to think about. Although we may associate garden weddings with spring, a garden dress code can be used year round, and therefore sleeveless maxis may not always fit the brief when it comes to warmth and comfort.

In spite of weather and venue, some factors we can be sure about when it comes to a garden wedding dress code are floral prints, pastel hues and whimsical details. Fabrics can be less structured and silhouettes can be more flowy, and if you do happen to have a garden wedding near the end of Autumn, then a soft jacket is a suitable addition. Accessories can range from raffia trimmed to brightly coloured, and jewellery can feature pops of colour which shine under the sunlight. Our style guide will help you decide what to wear to a garden wedding in the summer and the fall so that you can feel relaxed, beautiful and confident.


Pastels & Painterly Prints For A Classic Garden Soiree

Feminine florals make for the perfect garden wedding attire. They provide a romantic, attractive, and traditional look and style that is fabulous for a day to night outfit. The best way to fit in with the garden theme is to wear bright colours with floral designs. Wear a floral printed dress with a crystal embellished raffia bag and coloured mules for a very garden look. A pastel coloured dress is also ideal for a feminine garden party look and will contribute to the natural beauty of the wedding’s ambiance. Pastels are the perfect colours to wear to a garden wedding. They are all about being bright, fun, and cheerful. Choose a dress which is light and elegant but still very appropriate garden wedding attire, and wear it with pearl drop earrings and chic slingbacks. A longer gown in a pastel shade is the perfect pick for a black tie garden wedding, especially if the wedding is being held at an estate and you are having a fancy dinner afterwards.



Embroidered Details For A Winery Wedding

Lace and embroidered dresses are a great choice for any wedding but are particularly perfect for a garden wedding as they are romantic, feminine, and enhance a woman’s beauty. Wear a cocktail dress which is adorned with a delicate lace, perfect for a wedding in wine country. Brightly coloured embroidery on a darker colour dress, such as black or navy, is a lovely choice as it is still very much appropriate for an outdoor wedding. If you are off to vineyard nuptials then pair chic mules or wedges and a classic clutch with your look, as stilettos tend to sink in the grass – only useful if you are playing …, of course.


Maxi Moments For A Mountain Weekend

A weekend in the mountains for a wedding is a dreamy scene. The cooler temps (in both summer and winter) may mean a maxi dress is best suited for this type of outdoor wedding. A gorgeous maxi dress is a great way to stay comfortable and stylish while feeling beautiful and poised. A maxi dress in a floral print or a plain bright colour works best for a casual or formal garden wedding dress code, and it is also the perfect wedding day dress to dance the night away. Wear a halter neck style maxi dress with a jacket or a bolero when the temps drop also, the perfect pairing for an outdoor wedding in the mountains.
