You’ve been invited to a friend or family’s wedding, the excitement is drawing in but then you think, what am i going to wear?
You want to be the best dressed guest – don’t we all, right? But you don’t want to over-do it. Is it formal, is it casual? Are you a day guest or an evening guest? There’s so many unwritten ‘rules’ when it comes to wedding guest dressing, so to make it a little clearer, we’ve rounded up some basic do’s and don’ts of what to wear to a wedding.
You literally can’t go wrong with a dress as a wedding guest, plus there are so many options so why wouldn’t you?! But how do you choose the right wedding guest dress? We’ve got a few things you can consider:
What kind of wedding is it, are you a day guest or an evening guest? Is it formal or not? Knowing the dress code of the wedding you’re attending is crucial. What you’d wear to the evening isn’t always what you’d wear during the day and vice versa.
What Should a Day Guest Wear?
If you’re a day guest at the wedding, this calls for maximum elegance. Think colourful outfits (bold or pastel) like dresses or two pieces rounded off with heels or flats – whichever you find most comfortable (since you’ll be in them all day!)
What Do You Wear To An Evening Reception?
The evening reception is the most relaxed part of the day, it’s the time that everyone lets their hair down and celebrates the day properly. It’s time to swap those heels for a pair of flats and dance the night away! Not sure what to wear? Here are our tips:
Outfits For The Mother Of The Bride/Groom
You’re up there as one of the most important guests on the day, which means you need an outfit that makes you feel special – an outfit that you’ll remember forever. Traditionally, the mother of the bride picks the out her dress first and the mother of the groom chooses something to tie in with that. The colours are usually in theme with the bridal party, a colour that complements but not necessarily the same.
Don’t forget the finishing touches – elegant clutches, sparkling jewellery and killer shoes to complete the all important outfit. Shop here.
