I hope everyone is recovering from Easter Weekend. If you’re like me, you’re starting to receive a ton of wedding invitations in the mail. This has inspired me to share my wedding guest dress guide. I love shopping for dresses for special events. To be honest, any chance I get to dress up immediately puts me in a better mood. There is something about changing up your daily wardrobe and putting a little bit more make-up on and curling your hair that is an instant mood booster. Everyone wants to look their best at a wedding, but still be comfortable, be able to DANCE, and not upstage the bride.
There are so many different styles that guest can wear and it can be overwhelming for some. You can stick with a traditional sleeveless business dress, but I always take this opportunity to branch out and show my style. Why not do something different or out of your weekly norm? This is also a great opportunity to surprise your date or significant other as well. : )
I always try to follow the brides theme. You should be able to tell by their formal wedding invitation on the style of dress you should wear. For example, the color scheme should give you a hint of what the bridesmaids are wearing. I try and stay within the same color scheme, but I never wear the same exact color. As far as if it is a rustic, beach, or traditional wedding you should be able to tell by looking up the location. Black is always a color to fall back on and can be worn in any season. Wearing black does not mean that you do not wish the couple well. That is a tale of the past. DO NOT WEAR WHITE! I am always shocked when I find that people show up in a white dress. The only one at the wedding that wears white is the bride.
I hope you have a fabulous time at the wedding you’re attending this year! If you do not find anything in the links I provided, please feel free to reach out to me and I will find something for you! 🙂
