What to wear to a wedding?
Going to a full-scale event can be an exhausting affair. If you are a little discombobulated because do not like long days of ceremonies and crowds of people then these tips will help you choose what to wear to a wedding without upstaging the leading lady.
What style is preferable?
Start with the invitation. If you are not sure about the dress code look at the invitation and let it guide you. If it says black tie, your settings are clear. If not, it should still give you some clues. A formal / traditional style of invitation will usually designate an event with a similar atmosphere.
Think of your comfort
After the invitation, think of the location and weather. If you stay outside and on your feet for hours, then you should choose flats or wedges to cover lawns, paves and country roads with relative ease. On the other side, you can choose heels, if you stay inside and the weather is cold.
What colors to choose?
Black or white is best avoided, as you do not want to upstage the bride (or even the bridegroom). Do not exaggerate as this ceremony is official. Try soft gray, if you’re afraid of color. Pale pink, green or blue are a common choice either.
Lace is the new trend this summer, and is perfect for weddings. Maxis are suitable for warmer climates and look excellent with jeweled flats. If dresses are not your top choice, you can opt for floral print pants with a simple top and a long necklace. Bright and flashy pants are another trend this summer.
Hats need some skills, but if you’re brave enough, go ahead. You will increase the gaiety of the event significantly.
Actually, you do not need go shopping as you can wear something old. You are not a prom queen today and a day steeped in sentiment is perfect for old favorites. Also, if you save on a one-hit-wonder dress, you can choose really great accessories.
