Immersed in nature, the nature of a garden wedding is, by default, less formal than an indoor wedding and this should be reflected in your look. With this more relaxed dress code, coordinate cohesively with your surrounds by opting for a floral print by Veronica Beard or soft, natural hues like Agua By Agua Bendita's printed linen design.
Usually they are held on a family estate or a place that has a close connection to the couple, there is something extra special and intimate about countryside weddings. Dress the part with tweed by Sandro, a free flowing checked design by Peony or We Are Kindred's paisley print halter neck style.
Whether a town hall, museum, library – expect a grand building that is best suited to a cocktail style frock. With less of nature's elements to factor in, practicality doesn't need to be at the forefront of your mind in this case. Opt for fitted, figure-hugging silhouettes like Patrizia Pepe's midi dress, or a crepe de chine creation by Reformation that will fit right in at the bar of a fancy banquet hall.
Whilst beach weddings usually are held in tropical climates a plane ride away, there's a rise in nuptials being held on beaches all around Scandinavian archipelagos. Wherever you are in the world, a beach setting calls for light and romantic colour palettes, like Zimmermann's soft lemon embellished mini dress. Enjoy the freedom that the beach affords in dress materials – with linens and lightweight satins all fair game.

Black tie wedding
A black tie wedding is one of few occasions when it's time to go all out, turning up the glamour to the most high-octane level. Floor-length gowns can be on the cards, but may not be the most appealing for a warm's summer day. Our suggestion: find a design that is cut or draped to tastefully show a little bit of skin, whether it's an off-shoulder silhouette, subtle cut-out, or high slit to show some leg.
