Church wedding

If you’re planning to attend a traditional church wedding this summer, we suggest choosing a feminine, classic-style dress that is suitable for the daytime — light colors are key. You should be a bit more conservative in your dress silhouette, so flashy styles and bold prints aren’t the best fit, but that doesn’t mean you need to be covered from head to toe either. Think on-trend but classic. (Photo: Getty Images)
