How to enjoy an outdoor wedding

One of my best friends got married this weekend.

It was an amazing experience!

It was also an outdoor wedding in the summer, which means I have a different game plan than the average wedding.

Here’s how to look fab and have an amazing time at an outdoor wedding!

1. Dress to STAY COOL!

I wore this fun dress from H&M to the event. Because I knew it was easy to launder, made from light material, and super duper comfortable. (And still adorable!) I also made sure to put my hair up!

2) Wear super duper comfortable flats. Make sure they are SO comfortable you can even Bar Method in them!

Outdoor weddings = uneven turf and potentially a lot of walking. If you’re feet hurt, there’s no way you will have an enjoyable time. Start with comfortable shoes–or stash a pair in your bag to change into after the ceremony! I wore my signature Pluggz fold-ups in glossy black. (And YES! These are the shoes you can win RIGHT NOW ON THE BLOG! WAHOOOOOOO!) You can order them online and save 10% with code “LORA.”


3) Feel free to add some whimsy outdoor to your accessories.

I layered two Pura Vida Bracelets (save 10% with code “LORA10” ) around my recently restored Vintage Seiko watch. #YogaChic at it’s best.

Because it’s bright yo.

They gave us adorable white ones as a party favor! Their love’s so bright, we all need shades!

    Great tips! Taking some of these suggestions for use in an upcoming baby shower that’s being held outside. Maybe bringing my mini battery-operated fan too! 🙂 Visiting from #FridaySharefest and #TBB
