There you have it! Four outfit ideas perfect for a few fabulous wedding occasions. (Hint: The garden outfit also works well for barn weddings, and the semi-formal look is also a great pick for weddings that call for cocktail attire.) You can copy these outfits (we won’t tell!) or use them as inspiration. Either way, you’re sure to be on the best-dressed list at the next wedding you attend!
