Summer might feel very far away for all of you North Carolina brides – and we completely understand why: the weather outside is still pretty ugly, and we haven’t even seen the first signs of spring knocking on our windows.

Yet, if you are planning a wedding for summer 2019, you want to make sure you order your wedding dress as soon as possible – ordering it and having it altered can take some time, so it’s best to act quickly to ensure that you will have it ready by the time your Big Day arrives.

What are important things to consider when choosing a wedding gown for a summer outdoor wedding in beautiful North Carolina?

We have some tips for you, so keep reading if you want to find out more.

·       Choose your fabric wisely. You want to feel comfortable on your wedding day, and the fabric you choose for your summer wedding dress is really important. Pick something made from natural fabrics, such as silk or even a finely woven cotton. These materials allow the skin to breathe and are more likely to feel comfortable on the skin on a hot summer day than synthetics like polyester.

·       Make sure you have coverage options. Depending on where exactly you want to have your wedding, consider the option of a light scarf or cape to throw on as the night sets in. No matter how summer-y it may be during the day, a little bit of coverage can go a long way when it comes to temperatures that drop during nighttime.

·       Lace fan? No problem. While a lot of lace wedding gowns can feel heavy and awkward during a summer day, the right type of lace can be an amazing option. Our favorite is Chantilly lace, which is a perfect lightweight option that will look airy, romantic, and luxurious on a summer bride.
