Wedding Season: Fashion Tips For Wedding Newbies

Published

on

By

Behold for wedding season is upon us and with invitation pilling up and wedding guests are eager to plan their outfits for the summer nuptials ahead, nobody is safe from killer mistakes!

Choosing what to wear can be hectic regardless of your role at the wedding, if you’re a close person then you will want to look your very best and if you’re not that close, you will want to wear just the right amount of glam to not attract much attention.

Now to help you with this dilemma, we have listed some popular tips on how to avoid a wedding day disaster and actually enjoy the wedding, which is the reason you’re going in the first place, right?

1- Don’t Wear White

While some brides are now cool with others wearing white, some are so still not! If you’re close enough to the bride, then you most probably know whether or not she applies this rule. If you’re not that close, then go with the safer option of not wearing white because trust me it is like a cardinal sin of weddings and by far the biggest mistake that can be made by a wedding guest

2- Don’t Upstage the Bride

Again, the safest option is going for a simple dress that won’t attract unnecessary attention that might be diverted from the bride, I know weddings are a great chance to look your best and treat yourself to a fancy dress but try to not go overboard. Prom dresses, maxi gowns with a train and multi-coloured sequins that scream look at me are best avoided.

3- Wear Comfy Shoes

What are you there for? Pictures or fun? Because if it’s for the pictures, then this tip is definitely not for you. Weddings are a great chance to unleash the party animal and dance maniac in you! So when you let loose, you better be doing it in comfy shoes.

You can always get a pair of white sneakers with you, and change into them after pictures time is over.

4- Recycle Outfits Using Accessories

If you are looking for an extra glam without diverting the attention from the bride, then your best shot is to invest in accessories. Also, accessories is a great way to avoid breaking your bank account, because you can simply use the right accessory to give an old outfit a makeover. Bags, Jewls, statement accessories can all help you recycle your old dress and update it for the next not so important wedding.

5- Avoid Wearing Revealing Outfits

See-through fabrics, plunging necklines and cutaway dresses should be worn with caution. Weddings at the end are attended by family members and you certainly don’t want to risk getting the wrong idea, so for the day steer clear of anything that might be too daring.

These are merely fashion tips and not rules that you must follow, at the end it’s all about how tight you are to the bride!

I will leave you with this final reminder.
