You’re a wedding guest, what should you wear?
In case you’re behind on the times, it’s wedding season! You’ve probably received at least one invitation to a wedding this season, and like me, your first thought was: “What am I going to wear?!”
I’ll be attending a wedding a couple of weeks and I’m anticipating maybe one or two more before wedding season is over. And because I am a person who loves fashion, I have to be that wedding guest that everyone sees as their fashion icon. But, of course, I don’t want to upstage the bride.
So what to you wear as a wedding guest? There are so many cocktail and evening dresses out there. Some are more formal and others a little more for the relaxed wedding guest.
The first thing you should think of when picking out your outfit for the upcoming wedding that you are attending is the weather and where the wedding will be held.
Outdoor weddings are very popular this season. So when attending one of these, make sure to wear something comfortable and breathable. I recommend a short floral dress to keep you cool in the summer heat, and to have you matching the beauty of the outdoors.
If the wedding is inside, you have a little more to consider because you could wear a variety of outfits. So the next thing to consider is the theme of the wedding and what the happy couple details on their invitations.
Most of the time, the invitation will say ‘semi-formal’, ‘formal’, etc.
So let that narrow down your choices. You wouldn’t want to show up to a very casual wedding wearing a ball gown. You’ll look pretty silly.
Lastly, know the wedding colors. If the bridesmaids are wearing purple, you might not want to show up wearing a floor-length purple gown. Well, unless you’re planning on sneaking into the bridal party pictures.
Now, you’re ready! Get dressed! Dance all night! And celebrate the happy couple!
Wait…I almost forgot. Since it’s Shop & Save Sunday, I’ve picked out some gorgeous show-stopping dresses specifically for being the wedding guest. And, as always, they are all under $50.
P.S. To narrow it down further, here’s a tip…don’t wear white.
