Ask BB: What to Wear to a Backyard Wedding

Here's a question posted by reader Michelle in the forums:

"My friend is getting married (2nd marriage) and they're are having it in their backyard. I know it's going to be very casual, so I don't want to be overdressed or underdressed. Any outfit ideas? We're in Florida, so it's hot! Thanks!!"

I suggest a fun day dress and wedges or embellished flats (heels will sink into grass). Casual doesn't have to be boring! Dress up, it'll make the wedding more fun, festive and stylish.

Here are three affordable outfit ideas for a backyard wedding to help you get inspired, click on any item for details:




What advice would you share with Michelle?

I especially love the first outfit.

I didn't know until the day of, but my sis in-law's wedd reception was held at the home of their friends. Walking in heels in grass is difficult needless to say. At least I looked damn good. :-)

Good tip about the heels! #1 is the best imo as it's full of cute touches and color!

I loved the first choice, but not everyone is going to look good in spaghetti straps so 2 and 3 are great also for different body types. Just loved the accessories you have put together for 3. :-)

Don't forget a light weight wrap or sweater to pull on as the sun sets. It will keep away any chills and help protect from annoying bugs.
