A caftan or kaftan can be appropriate for a summer wedding. Summer caftans are usually in printed cotton or silk and can be dressy or casual. A wedding calls for something somewhat dressy so a more dressy style long caftan would look nice at a summer wedding. Naturally outdoor or weddings on the beach call for a more casual style caftan. Evening weddings in general call for clothing that is more dressy than daytime events. When the weather is hot something loose and floaty can be very comfortable to wear and fun for dancing. As far as footwear goes with caftans sandals (with or without heels), wedges, or sexy high heels brings this look from the beach to the ballroom. The style of your caftan will dictate what jewelry to wear. If your caftan is solid color and simple in style add bling to rock your look. A dress that is fancy calls for less jewelry. Try only earrings to see how it looks before adding more. Style with a clutch or a small purse.
