Our summer weekends are separated into two categories: those that require us to attend a wedding and those that don't. And, with venues now ranging from rooftops to barnyards to beaches — hello, elements! — getting dressing for these many nuptials comes with its own set of parameters. Sure, we know the basics: When grass is involved, four-inch heels are not. And, fancy rooftop receptions require a sartorial game that rises to the occasion.
