Schedules, Events, and What To Wear

I have a beach wedding to go to right before the season transitions into autumn, and I am thinking of appropriate attire. I actually wore this dress out to an early dinner one evening, but then pondered about possible looks for this upcoming wedding that we have to attend.

I just might add a scarf or jacket in case the cool breezes from the water kicks up the night air. (Think: Satin blazer, crop, or sheer overlay). For now, options are between this dress, a navy ribbon embellished shift dress, and a vintage lace bateau neck midi-length dress.

This year is far different from last year's wedding invites: the timeline of our 2013 weddings have been falling right into ridiculously busy moments workwise and not exactly in easy to fly to hub destinations, if I might add.
Thankfully, the upcoming one is quite like a "second wedding," since the couple secretly got married a few weeks ago. Now, they will have a joyous celebration with friends (and family) in a casual resort and "beach party" style two-day event; at least that's what the invitations said a mere five weeks ago!

Most all attending guests, like myself will be on the next flight to work the following day, a couple of guests will be moving a few days later, and another friend of mine attending will be going on holiday, so we all need to have something travel-friendly, semi-elegant, and with no-fuss styling.
Have you been to a casual wedding or beach wedding?

    I have a dress like this and I think it will be great for a beach wedding, especially with the added blazer. And your hair up like that is perfection! My wedding was sort of a beach, casual wedding--they are the most fun! :)

  32. hey madison! that dress would be perfect. i've never attended one, but my aunt did. you want something lightweight, with beautiful color that flows with the wind. see why that dress is perfect? it fits all three! hahaha sometimes people wear hats (depending on the sun coverage) or a spray of flowers in their hair. it all depends on you. wishing you a wonderful time when you go doll.

  67. Never been to a wedding on a beach. In fact I've been to very few weddings full stop. Although a lot of my girlfriends's friends are getting married next year as are a couple of mine, so I know it's going to be busy. I'm thinking of investing in a really great suit. I love the dress and think it'll be perfect on the beach.

  69. Interesting! Well, weddings in general can go either way (really good or bad), fortunately I've been to mostly great ones. Having a big party takes all of the pressure off so I'm getting excited about this beach style wedding. :)

  73. It's been years since I went to a beach/destination wedding. I can't even remember what I wore which is annoying. I do think what you wore for this post would be an appropriate beach wedding outfit though and your looks perfect too.
