sydneyfrancis88 :  I love the last one and the first one. Though I thin kk the first one is a bit more formal than necessary.

I absolutely love that last one. All will be good for the weather. As it will probably be rather hot. The last one is just so pretty though! I might buy it myself for a summer wedding I’ll be attending. Thanks!

 MN in the summer can be VERY hot and outrageously humid.  I think the last one with a cardigan for church and just in case it cools off at night.

I live in MN. It is hot as balls here in August and humid as well. Wear something breathable and lightweight!!

Maybe bring a cardigan for the evening, but I doubt it would go below 60 degrees. 

 As for the dresses, the first two look like they would be too warm. I think that third one is perfect!

Daytime?  Night time?  Where in MN?  Northern MN along Lake Superior will usually be about 10 degrees cooler with a nice lake effect than say the Twin Cities area (and I just looked it up – Duluth, MN along Lake Superior is currently 30 degrees cooler than Minneapolis right now).  That said, the Twin Cities area has been pretty darn hot and humid this summer – it’s just muggy and sticky more often than not.

All three are nice.  1 and 3 definitely require a cardigan in my opinion if you’re going to be in church.  2 could get away without (but still might be nice if the temps cool off at night – though they haven’t lately).  Depending on where it is at #1 might be more formal than necessary (say it’s at a conservatory, then it would be appropriate, but if it was at an inn that also has a garden then I would stick with #3).  I actually prefer #2 or #1 in that order and probably wouldn’t do the floral unless it was daytime, but I tend to be a little more formal in my dresses than probably necessary and don’t much care for floral patterns for evening weddings.


ETA:  Just saw the navy dress is polyester.  Probably not unless the wedding is in northern MN off the lake and evening.

I really love #3! When the weather is super hot I always try and wear non-sleeved dresses (i.e. not #2) so I don’t sweat as much
