Summer starts in less than two weeks. If you are as excited as I am, you must be looking forward to beaches, picnics, family outings, outdoor activities and weddings. Yes, summers is a busy season for weddings. I know I will be traveling a lot this summer because many of my friends and cousins are getting married.
As much fun it is to prepare for the whole wedding, from bachelorette party to rehearsal to reception, it also makes one overwhelmed with the number of dresses and outfits you have to wear and change. Now, I am not complaining about wearing cute outfits part, I am just thinking about the tedious process of selecting which dress to wear for what occasion and then matching each of these dresses with appropriate accessories.
For this reason, I decided to make a roundup of cute dresses to wear to a summer wedding. They are not too expensive but you will look like a million dollar. If you are also invited to a summer wedding, feel free to take advantage of this list and prepare yourself for the occasion.
