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.
Layers of floating tulle bring a softness and grace while allowing the summer breeze to drift through. The hand ruched bodice is strapless and finished with a pearl closure, while statement detachable sleeves can be cuffed with pearls or a simple tie for a more billowing, romantic feel.
This gorgeous two piece ensemble is perfect for brides looking for a minimal, versitile gown. It is elegant together or on its own, giving you the flexibility to mix and match on your wedding day as well as future celebrations. For a summer wedding, we reccomend wearing the undergown for your ceremony and adding the sheer overlay for your evening celebrations as the sun sets.
Chic and timeless with clean lines and a simple silhouette making it the perfect gown for those wanting an elegant bridal look without looking too traditional. With the option of adding detachable sleeves and sheer jackets, it’s the ultimate statement in modern style.
