Wedding Dress Code Rules

With wedding season just around the corner, you may be in the process of planning your own big day or perhaps you are going to attend the event of other people like friends and family. If it is the latter, you need to think carefully about what you are going to be wearing.

Essentially, the best wedding outfits are the ones which look elegant and classy without risking upstaging the bride! So, here is a bit of advice which is here to help you when it comes to choosing what to wear

Don’t Wear White!
The cardinal sin of dressing for a wedding is wearing white, so this is something that you certainly need to avoid! While a wedding is a great time to dress a little fancier than you normally would, you still need to balance it out by not going too over the top. Give the bride and groom the chance to take centre stage.

A wedding provides the perfect opportunity to accessorise your outfit. Bags, hats, shoes and jewellery can all be coordinated with your outfit to create your masterpiece! When you start going to a lot of weddings, you may not want to buy a new outfit every single time. But accessorising gives you the perfect way to update the look of your outfit without breaking the bank to get a new one.

Don’t Be Too Casual
In fact, dressing too casually for a wedding may be worse than turning up a little too fancy. After all, most weddings are supposed to be grand and elegant occasions. The last thing that you want to do is turn up wearing jeans and a t-shirt! It just looks disrespectful, and if the hosts put in so much effort preparing their big day, the least that you can do is look your best.

Wear Colour in the Summer
s we approach the summer months, this is the time of year that you can add a burst of colour to your outfit. However, the one thing that you want to avoid is clashing with the bridal party. A couple of well-placed text messages can help you avoid this major wedding fashion faux pas!

Bring Some Flats
Weddings generally involve a lot of standing up, dancing, walking around mingling etc. This can be a major pain to your feet if you are wearing heels all day long. Bringing a pair of flats with you can help out in a big way. Simply slip these on during the evening event when no one is really going to notice.

Choosing your wedding outfit can end up being a bit of a balancing act. Essentially, you want to look fancy and elegant without going overboard and risking upstaging the bride. If you are unsure, you are better off erring on the side of caution and going for something which is on the simple side while still being pretty.

    Bringing flats is the best idea. I've been to so many events and forgot mine, it really can ruin your day/evening. It's always best to choose comfort first
