8 dos and don't to wear to a wedding
Still pondering about what is the right wedding attire? Here's a short list of what you should or shouldn't wear to a wedding.
1. DON'T WEAR WHITE UNLESS THE BRIDE SAYS SO IN THEIR INVITE
This should be a no brainer since the bride will be wearing either white or off white. You don't want to stick out like a sore thumb in the photo. Imagine, everyone wondering who is the bride? After all, she is the star of the day, only right we respect her special day.
White - Not OK; Pastel Pink - OK
2. "IT'S BETTER TO OVERDRESSED THAN UNDERDRESSED."
Whether it is a wedding or another event, it never kills to wear a little nicer. After all, hey, that ex might just be there and you want to look your best, OR you might meet your prince charming OR worse, get into an accident, and die in your not so pretty outfit. BUT, of course, you don't wear a ball gown to a church wedding.
3. A DISTRACTING, DRAMATIC, EXTREME, TOO SEXY, SPARKLY OUTFIT
Hey you don't want to outshine the bride. Sparkle is okay if it is kept to a minimal. Anything too glaring will get everyone staring at you instead. You don't want the guests to bitch about you for years to come.
4. DENIM, KHAKIS, SHORTS
Even if the invite shorts semi-formal. Unless the dress code calls for a denim & diamonds theme, this is pretty much an outcast at a wedding. Opt for a neutral playsuit instead if you really hate skirts or dresses.
5. SAME COLOUR AS THE BRIDESMAIDS
If you do know the colour they will be wearing in advance, you will be smart not to wear that colour. Seriously, why would you want to tell people that you didn't make the bridal party.
6. APPROPRIATE FOR THE VENUE
If the wedding is at the beach, you do not wear big ball gown, and if you are attending a church wedding, it is respectful to cover up.
7. BLACK IS FOR ALL OCCASIONS
Many might think that black is for funerals but if you match the little black dress with red shoes, glittering clutch, who's to say it is too solemn? Plus, black makes you slim! LBD is for every occasion.
8. FAMILY MEMBERS SHOULD PICK COMPLEMENTARY COLOURS
For artfully styled photos of the bridal party and family, dress in similar shades of the same colour or complementary colours.
