What Type Of Wedding Dress Should I Go For?

When considering the wedding dress you’ll wear for your summer wedding, it’s advisable to opt for lightweight and breathable fabrics such as chiffon, organza, or lace. A-line or sheath silhouettes are popular choices for summer weddings as they are comfortable and allow for easy movement. Additionally, dresses with open backs, off-the-shoulder styles, or spaghetti straps can help keep you cool in warm weather. Ultimately, the best wedding dress for a summer wedding is one that makes you feel comfortable, confident, and beautiful on your special day.

Should I Have My Wedding Outdoors?

If you want an outdoor summer wedding you will need to consider the unpredictable weather conditions. To have confidence in planning such an event, it’s recommended to have a back-up plan in case of rain or adverse weather. This could involve renting a marquee or having the flexibility of a venue with both indoor and outdoor spaces that will provide peace of mind.

Working closely with suppliers who have experience with outdoor events in the UK can also help ensure that all necessary precautions are taken to mitigate any weather-related risks. Keeping a close eye on weather forecasts in the days leading up to the wedding and having a clear communication plan in place with guests can also help manage expectations and ensure a smooth event.

By being prepared, flexible, and proactive in your planning, you can have confidence in organising an outdoor wedding in Ireland during the summer, even with the unpredictable weather conditions!
