Wedding dresses for a backyard wedding

Wedding Dresses

Dan Lecca

Backyard chic weddings have a warm, welcoming, and unpretentious feel, a vibe that can be matched in many outdoor settings from a country club lawn to a garden. When choosing a dress (and bridesmaid dresses) for a wedding held in these locations, let "less is more" be your mantra—unfussy styles that feature relaxed silhouettes, lightweight fabrics, and understated feminine details like soft ruffles or cotton lace overlays. —Kim Forrest
