As we promised yesterday, June will be a month of wedding inspiration – for the bride and the guests! I myself have heard more than a few readers ask for recommendations on what to wear to certain weddings this season, so we thought we’d have some fun with it and shoot five of our favorite dresses – all under $200 – to share with you over the next week! First up? What to wear to a garden wedding…

For me, the great outdoors call for beautiful texture in a dress. Whether that’s a simple linen or a flowing chiffon, I think a vineyard, garden or farm wedding lends itself to more organic, natural textures. This stunner caught my eye for its beautiful blue hue as well as one of the season’s best textures – lace!

For such a sophisticated dress, I actually wanted to make the accessories a little bit unexpected to switch things up a bit. The earrings were my inspiration – that perfect malachite green made me instantly decide to don my favorite Valentino heels for added color! I could have easily gone metallic with the shoe, but green for a garden wedding was just too perfect.

Rose gold accents topped things off, as they lended themselves well to the nude tones in the dress… and the stunning clutch.

This would definitely be an investment piece – but my how it sparkles! And I love how the design mimics the lace, but still provides such a contrast to the dress.

    I would have picked thicker heels or a wedge to ensure I didn’t sink into the ground.. but otherwise I love the outfit. Such a beautiful blue and gorgeous clutch!
