The best of summer wedding gowns

With a very much anticipated Summer wedding season on the horizon and invitations for garden soirées and beachside celebrations filing our letterboxes, we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate once again with friends and family.

But alongside the warmer weather comes the question; which bridal gowns are best suited to a hot summers day? We sure think we’ve found the answer, with a gorgeous range of sheer fabrics, breezy cutouts and shorter hemlines to take you from your mid-day beach ceremony through to your warm evening dance floor. Take a look at Together Journal’s ‘Best Of’ summer wedding gowns below.

The necklace shaped halter and open back with a tulle feature, makes this gown stunning whichever way you look at it and perfect for keeping cool on a hot Summers day. Delicate layers of translucent lace and tulle add romance to this design and we think the floral applique makes this gown perfectly suited to a gorgeous garden wedding.
