Wedding Attire 101

July 15, 2014


The other day I was reading about “20 things that change in your late 20’s” and one of them was the fact you should stop buying white dresses because you won’t have any place to wear them (in reference to the vast amount of weddings/wedding related events you’ll need to attend).  While I will always continue to buy white dresses, it did get me thinking about just WHAT you can wear to a wedding… here are my top 10 do’s and dont’s:

  1. Don’t wear white (even if the bride doesn’t care, chances are someone else will)
  2. Do wear a fun colored dress (bright coral, buttercup yellow, emerald green are all great options)
  3. Don’t wear anything too sexy (remember you are at a family event)
  4. Do dress time appropriate (don’t wear sequins to a day wedding or a sundress to an evening wedding)
  5. Don’t wear black (you want to make sure you don’t look like your going to a funeral, but a chic LBD should be fine)
  6. Do bring a sweater or shawl (churches or outdoor receptions can be cool)
  7. Don’t be afraid to wear prints (floral or stripes can be a fun option)
  8. Do look at the invite (invitations often will help guide dress code & any “themes” you need to adhere to)
  9. Don’t wear jeans (duh)
  10. Do think about your feet (between lawn ceremonies and dance parties, wedges and flat sandals are a great idea)

Here are some great dress options:
