Brunch Wedding Outfit inspiration, #ootd, style

Brunch Wedding Outfit Inspiration

Today at STYLEanthropy, I’m sharing with you this outfit I wore to a brunch wedding in the forest. I was going through my photos and saw that this one hasn’t been posted and it’s from a couple weeks back. Oh, and #noshame but I still have photos from last year that needs sharing. I have been so behind but I am trying my best to get those outfit photos out. Anyway, let’s get back to this brunch wedding outfit inspiration. I figured I can share this look since it’s June, the ever popular wedding season, and my ladies maybe able to get ideas for upcoming weddings you’ll be attending. Go check it out.




Brunch Wedding Outfit Inspiration

I chose this look for a brunch wedding because it’s not too formal, yet not too casual. When you’re trying to decide what to wear to a wedding, you have to think about the theme, time of event, and setting. For example, if it’s in a hotel, then choose a more formal and sleek look. If it’s at the beach, then go for light-colored, long and flowy dresses with light fabric (to keep you cool under the sun). If it’s a brunch time wedding, you can go with more colors with lots of white. If it’s a night wedding, go for darker colors that are more appropriate for evening events.

Since the wedding I attended was brunch-style and was set in a forest with a rustic theme, I knew rustic accessories and bright colors for brunch would be perfect. For such themes, you can easily grab any maxi dress you own, but make sure the fabric is still nice enough for a wedding. As much as possible, don’t go for jersey-type fabrics that feel more casual. Now if it was a night-time wedding, I would go against lace kimonos. You’ll be better off with a dark or metallic shawl so it’s more formal. But for a brunch time wedding with a rustic theme? Lace is perfect. Rustic is all about natural elements, neutral colors, lace, whites, earth tones, rhinestones, brass metals, wood, etc.


So I grabbed my navy Carmen Marc Valvo maxi gown with color-blocking in pink and orange/coral colors which are fun for brunch. To go with the rustic theme, I went with a lace kimono and brass metals in my accessories. PS: normally I’ll go for fine jewelry for weddings. But since this was brunch-themed and didn’t require formal wear, I could get away with rustic statement pieces.



Instead of going with stilettos, wedge was more appropriate because of the uneven pavement, ground, grass, and brick areas going into the function room.


And then I went with a neutral bag.
