RSVP your outfit: 3 dresses for 3 different weddings


Love is in the fresh summer air. On top of the colourful flowers and rich greenery, wedding season is also in full bloom around here. We love watching the special people in our lives say, “I do.” But romance aside, it can be a bit of a fashion riddle to figure out exactly what to wear to each big day. No dress code on the invite? No problem! We’re breaking down the perfect outfit for each of your summer weddings, based on all the invitation details.

You're invited to: a formal evening affair at The Fort Garry Hotel Ballroom
Wear this: An elegant wedding calls for an elegant dress and this little black number from BCBG is just the ticket. The sheer black chiffon panels are bold and sexy while the high neckline keeps it refined. Lace and tiered details are the perfect complement to the ballroom’s high ceilings, antique details, and vintage aura. Paired with strappy black and gold heels, this look will dance the night away in style.

You're invited to: an elegant afternoon garden ceremony at the Assiniboine Park Conservatory
Wear this: When you’re competing with one of the most beautiful flower gardens in the city, you have to pull out all stops in the colour department. This pretty printed frock from Melanie Lyne incorporates one of the season’s biggest trends with its swirling washes of colour – artsy, painterly prints. The sleeveless style will keep you cool on a hot, sunny afternoon, while the flattering midi length and round neck are conservative enough for a daytime event. Playful white wedges are dressed up, but still allow you to navigate the grassy terrain.

You're invited to: an intimate beach wedding on the shores of Lake Winnipeg
Wear this: When the wedding vibe is relaxed and easy, let your outfit follow suit. Keep it laid-back with casual details like a sleeveless and button-down front, cropped length, and easy-tie waist. Crisp blue lake water makes pretty gorgeous wedding décor, so take a cue from nature and go for pops of vivid turquoise, like in this cute dress from Le Chateau. Flat sandals in a pop of matching colour are pretty and practical for a ceremony in the sand.
