Dressing for a wedding is tricky business, you want to look fun, appropriate and stunning while remembering that it isn’t your big day. We have covered the key do’s and don’ts for a wedding so you can enjoy the day whilst feeling great!
Dresses are the most traditional item to wear as a wedding guest, but there are some guidelines you should follow to ensure that you are dressed appropriately while looking amazing. A knee length dress is a safe option, meaning that there will be no embarrassing slip-ups after a few glasses of champagne and shows respect for the event. When picking a colour, any colour goes at a wedding (except white, obviously), but avoid loud patterns that draw attention to your outfit rather than the details of the day.
There are plenty of formal jumpsuits you can style for a wedding. While they might be a nightmare when you need to pop to the toilet, they are perfect for dancing the night away!
Wedding season gives you a perfect excuse to put on a killer skirt. Styled with a silky camisole or a plain blouse, a skirt provides the perfect foundation to a wedding guest outfit that will wow fellow guests.
Shoes are extremely important when it comes to attending a wedding, you need to consider how long you will be on your feet, and what terrain you are going to be on. Make sure you find a comfortable pair that can last you all wedding season.
Wearing a hat or headpiece to a wedding entirely depends on the dress code, if you are unsure whether one is appropriate then do check with the bride. If they are welcomed, then pick one that matches the predominant colour of your outfit if wearing a bold style. But, if you are wearing a block colour then you can use your hat or headpiece to add a pop of colour. Alternatively, a floral hair clip adds some excitement to your hairdo without being over the top.
