Going to weddings can be a blast, and that goes double for outdoor ceremonies. Not only do you get to take advantage of the gorgeous weather, but you're also able to get away with bright colors, lightweight fabrics, and comfy, chic flats — which ensure that you'll be a force to be reckoned with on the dance floor. If you're slated to attend an alfresco wedding this season and are in need of outfit ideas, look no further. We've put together the ultimate outdoor wedding pieces and hooked you up with some sartorial dos and don'ts. See it all when you keep reading.
In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed the "Organic Act," creating the National Park Service, the new federal bureau in the Department of the Interior protecting the 35 national parks and monuments then managed by the department. Now, the United States' national parks are made up of nearly 400 natural, cultural, and recreational sites across the country, including massive parks like Yellowstone, and historical sites like the Statue of Liberty. Besides showcasing national historic and environmental treasures, many of these parks are also available for wedding ceremonies. Check out my top reasons for getting hitched at a national park.
Earlier this week you all went on a Fab Finding mission for a perfect outfit to wear to an outdoor wedding. Whether this wedding takes places atop a mountain, on a beach or at a park, I started you off with this J. Crew Refined silk-cashmere ivory wrap, $75, in case it gets chilly! WhiplashGirlchild even offered up some great pointers:
- No stilettos if you have to walk on grass or sand
- Layer, layer, layer!
- Don't forget the sunglasses. And, if you're going to be on the beach, bring a hat!
I trust you all came up with some genius getups so let's take a look! To see all the outdoor wedding fab finds click here.

To kick off Wedding Planning Mania Week we're going to get this love party started with an appropriate Fab Finding. Is it me or have outdoor weddings become more popular? When I actually think of all the weddings I've attended, about half of them were in an outdoor setting. One of my favorite ones was perched atop a mountainside in Crested Butte Colorado; it was quaint and sweetly romantic.
