Summer is the most popular time for weddings, from afternoon garden to evening formal affairs, finding an outfit that makes a guest look and feel fabulous can be a challenge for curvy women. Styles run the gamut from simple day looks to sophisticated evening wear.   Most weddings, however, reserve full length black tie formal looks for the wedding party, including special guests such as grandmothers and the mothers of the bride and groom

Although black (and white) are becoming more acceptable choices for guests of very modern brides, most still choose other colors as a sign of respect for the occasion.  Pant sets and even jumpsuits are becoming popular, although dresses and skirts remain the favorite for most women.  Peasant blouses in filmy chiffon in both solids and floral prints when mixed with wide palazzo pants or evening skirts create an ethereal, romantic look appropriate for weddings.

Hem lines are coming down, with a few women still choosing looks above the knee but midi and maxi styles are both chic and easy-to-wear for all ages and body types.

Floral prints are especially popular for outdoor and afternoon garden events with both cool blues and greens and spicier orange and peach tones in style this year.  Bold placed prints can create a very modern twist on the classic sheath dress, while more painterly and watercolor prints are always good selections in soft chiffons.  Vintage styles are also traditionally popular wedding guest choices with options this year ranging from art deco beauties to swinging seventies inspired looks.   The mid-twentieth century fit and flare and figure hugging sheath styles are still a favorite with many guests.

Feminine kimono toppers have become all the rage this year, and while often worn more casually by young trend setters can be wonderful choices for women who want a light extra layer at more formal summer occasions.  Some of the most luxurious examples are available in silk with fine embroidery, burnout designs, and vintage details that make them guaranteed conversation starters.

Although shift and trapeze style dresses are coming into fashion, many styles still work better with the structure of shapewear undergarments.
