Tip # 1: Consider the Location or Venue
Often the most overlooked factor in what to wear to a wedding as a guest is where the wedding will take place. A great dress can look great on you, but totally irrelevant to the place of marriage and setting. You may also be left feeling more dressed in dress or just comfortable in a dress weather appropriate. So before you attend the ceremony or reception, consider: the inside dining room or outside? On the beach or in a courthouse? A decadent affair in a castle or a simple ceremony at a friend’s house or garden? Is it a ceremony of the day or evening? Can you take your wedding ceremony to the reception, or a change outfit or accessory needed change? With so many dresses to wear to a wedding it’s best narrow down your choices to make the decision easier and quicker
In a Courthouse:
For a matter of courthouse, its best to check with the wife first to see if and how the ceremony plans to be. You definitely do not want to appear when the bride is dressed in a costume business pants! Its best to opt for a discreet look in this scenario, keeping in mind the dignity of the event by not dressing too casual.
A daytime event or garden tea length dresses should cut colors. Do not show very sexy and sassy in high heels and the sky a mini-dress for this type of event! Having your beautiful new pair of heels impaled in the grass in a garden ceremony will leave you wishing you wore flats! So plan ahead, bringing a change of shoes for a reception later.
For the classic marriage made until eruption of the century, you have to accept that the buildup of this event requires advance planning. For these types of events, classic cuts and styles are best. Stay true to your expectations timeless, the LBD (Little Black Dress) or LWD (Little White Dress) for a summer wedding, and a pair of heels taste paired with matching clutch. Bring a wrap to expectations in the open air around (photos) or keep at home in air-conditioning. These weddings can be as fun as it is a great excuse to really done everything and feel like a princess that you watch your friend to take her vows. A dress for this type of case is usually glam chic enough to take you to the reception ceremony.
If you are a wedding on the beach, you’ve probably already lost a large sum of money on airfare, then skip the madness for new shoes … In all that sand, which will notice anyway! A maxi dress chic and well cut will do wonders for both ceremony and reception, and coupled with a pair of gladiator sandals to your wardrobe, you will feel comfortable at a wedding destination, and have fun without breaking the bank!
So you head to the country club for a black tie wedding? Do not stress, as this is really a fun opportunity to dress up and feel great in formal coat with the hair-up do. If you’re not sure how formal to go, ask the bride, or play it safe with more than casual fancy. Be under-dressed is embarrassing, but is so overcome the bride. A high-do with a formal cocktail dress tea length fits perfectly in between ball gown and evening gown. Opt for a fancy dress, with pearls, and bring a wrap to add stylish sophistication. Do not dress too sexy and do not show up in a suit pants!
Tip # 2: Consider the season
The official wedding season, summer is the time wasted chances are you will be invited to attend a wedding. Do not sweat this season bearing in mind some simple tips that will ensure you turn heads while keeping cool and comfortable, and of course, keeping the attention focused on the bride. First, since its season, light a stick of sunny summer colors, and prints. While a LBD is correct for an evening reception, do not attend a ceremony of the day in the dark, and of course, do not come in white, either, unless its a white wedding theme. Keep away from plunging necklines or sky high heels for the garden and outdoor ceremonies: it is not the time to look sexy nightclub, nor the time to fill the lawn with holes in your heels. A ceremony of the day outdoors may also be suitable for a sleek pantsuit, but not short! For formal ceremonies inside, it’s better to forget the costume pants just to be on the safe side. A black tie event was to be kept classy and formal, but a floor length dress is not necessary in this season. A destination wedding means its been sunny all year round, so be sure to keep it light and hassle free for a wedding on the beach.
It is perhaps in the spring, and we are all dying to get out of our winter wardrobe and frumpy style was trembling, but its still cold outside, so dress smart for a wedding in the spring. This is the perfect opportunity to wear bright colors and bold floral prints and cute without sticking like a sore thumb. A pretty pastel dress with heels is also a good option if the air is still alive, or you do not have time to work off those winter pounds at the gym. Half-length cocktail dress tea length in a solid color can take you directly to the reception, but remember, a black dress for a ceremony the day of spring does not work. You probably want to ditch the pantyhose for a wedding in the spring, and make sure a pedicure! Bring a colorful pashmina as a stylish and comfortable cover-up. A spring wedding is the perfect time to try a hat or even gloves. If the royal wedding can take many hats, so if you can!
This is our personal favorite season of marriage, as the clear nights warm days and cool evenings are perfect for the ceremony day, the combination of evening reception! Dress for a fall wedding can be difficult at times trying to find a balance between attending to the wishes and warm day a cold reception in the dark. If you attend a black tie event, a long evening gown Floor-length is more suitable for the reception, although a cocktail dress tea length can create an illusion of class without the drama of a full blown dress. If you are not sure, dress, somewhere in the middle of the cocktail and formal, and you have right person in. Stick to deep, rich colors, not necessarily a LBD. Formal heels and a clutch will look great with a dark suit pants, cocktail dress or a dress. Bring a wrap in case the air is chilly.
By place of marriage, winter temperatures range from cool to freezing. If you are invited to a wedding in a few feet of snow, be practical. A trouser suit is acceptable for the ceremony here, as a jacket over your dress. An elegant dress pants, black with pearls to dress you turn right from the ceremony to the reception. If you are braving a dress, bring a jacket but make sure of his fancy clothes and enough to keep you from looking and feeling frumpy. It’s a good idea to bring a wrap, even a heated indoor reception, just in case. If you pot to wear boots, go with black heels, after all it is a marriage, even if the bride and groom have invited you to a freeze out! Deep, beautiful colors of purple, burgundy, blue or green will look great in a winter wedding, and that this type of marriage, the popularity is increasing, its best to have a dress ready and waiting in your wardrobe. As a side tip, go for a simple hassle free haircut, such as freezing cold winds and snow will destroy the best loops and are put in no time!
