Wedding Guest Outfit Dos and Don’ts

Wedding season is here and in full swing. This season is one of my favorites. I just love everything about weddings, from the decor to the cake, I can’t get enough. Not only do I get to watch two people who are madly in love marry each other, but it means I get to buy more outfits. Speaking of outfits, today’s post is all about wedding guest outfit dos and don’ts. There are so many rules to keep in mind when you are wedding guest and I’m here to break them down for you.

Wedding Guest Outfits Dos and Don’ts

 

Dos:

Pick an outfit that is romantic. You are attending a wedding and wedding are all about love and romance. Select an outfit that is soft and pretty. Some styles to keep in mind are pastels, ruffles, lace, and floral and fun prints. Anything that is edgy or overly trendy should be worn on other occasions.

 

Pay attention to detail. This is super important when selecting what outfit to wear. While no matter the details, you’ll still want to pick a nice outfit, you can adjust how nice based on the details. If you know the wedding is going to be a rustic, barn wedding a pretty sundress is appropriate. On the other hand, if the wedding is going to be in a ballroom, select a more formal dress.

 

Wear dancing shoes. Going along with the tip above, you are going to want to be out on the dance floor having a great time. Super high heels probably aren’t the best shoe option. If the heels are the only thing that makes your outfit, think about sneaking in a pair of flats or flip flops to throw on just before the music start playing.

Don’ts:

Wear white. No matter what the “rule” is on wearing white to weddings, it’s best to leave your white dress for another occasion. Most people are still very traditional on only the bride wearing white so as not to offend the bride on her day, select another color option.

 

Bare it all. It’s probably not a good idea to select an outfit that is too sexy or revealing. A wedding is not the place to let it all hang out. Not only will people be staring (and not in a good way) but this could leave you feeling self-conscious while you’re out on the dance floor. Believe me, you’re going to want to be out on the dance floor having a good time, not sitting on the sidelines because your dress is too revealing and you aren’t able to bust a move.

 

Forget this day is not about you, at all. Say it louder for the people in the back. THIS DAY IS NOT ABOUT YOU. Don’t steal the show from the bride.
