Wedding Guest Dressing Tips: Do's & Don'ts
Dress for the ocassion. When in doubt follow these siimple guidlines:
Beach / Tropical Destination - Think laid back luxe, ruffles, flowing fabric or island inspired prints! This is your chance to choose a look that is less formal but allows for a sexy option.
Black Tie - Cocktail attire is a MUST, so make sure to go for a fabulous cocktail dress or WOW them with a gorgeous gown! It's better to overdress than to underdress.
Casual - Just because the invite suggest a less dressy attire, does NOT mean that you should wear shorts, jeans or anything you would wear to a street fest! Keep you casuals in the closet and go for a party dress.
Wearing White: We know, we know...the jig is up, but that doesn't mean the bride wants to share the spotlight with you! Instead, opt for a metallic look or at least a colorful pattern on a white base makes more sense.
This ISN'T your red carpet moment: You can bring the glitz and glamour without wearing a red carpet worthy dress. You don't want to outshine the bride, so keep that in mind!
Accessorize It Right: Break out your strappy sandals, metllic skins and bejeweled stilettos! ALWAYS use a clutch. You shouldn't be carrying any sort of leather tote or satchel.
Jewels: If your dress is solid, then go for a statement necklace, bangles or earrings. Put it all on and then remove the pieces until it feels just right. For a busy dress that stands on it's own, go for diamond studs, a dainty necklace, a cocktail ring or a few thin bangles to keep it sophisticated, but don't go overboard.
