3. Casual: Whenever I hear of a casual outdoor wedding, I automatically assume it’s set on the beach. Casual is nice because it’s easy on the wallet and likely the most comfortable thing you’ll ever wear to an event. Just remember that casual does not mean flip-flops nor does it mean slobby. Opt for structured and not skin tight, and you’ll be sure to look a winner.

I love this color block dress from JCrew.
