Weddings are so fun! Who’s with me? I love watching two people become a forever couple – such an amazing life moment. Chuck and I have been to 2 weddings this summer, so far, and both have been so beautiful in their own way. But when it comes to weddings, you must know what you can and cannot wear.

In this post, I’ve outlined 3 Bride Approved tips for wedding guest attire:

  1. Don’t Wear White. I think this is pretty obvious but the Bride is the only woman that can wear white to a wedding. And I hate to say it but I’ve definitely seen some offenders. However, I have found one bridal event that you could pull off white to – a Welcome Party. Now, don’t wear a full length white lace dress, but feel free to wear a dress that has a white background and a floral print or stripes. That is Bride approved!
  2. Do Wear Whatever Dress Length. Now, if it’s a summer wedding, you probably won’t wear a ball gown, but if that is your style and you want to wear that, do it. First step is to determine if there is a dress code. If there is one, you must abide to it to be considerate. However, if there is no dress code, feel free to wear as fancy of a dress as you want – it is completely up to you. There is nothing wrong with dressing up to a wedding. There is also nothing wrong with dressing more casual if it is outdoor and there isn’t a set dress code.
  3.  Don’t Be Shy. If you are unsure of what to wear to a specific wedding, send a quick text or email with a pic of what you’re planning to wear to ensure she approves. My rule is: If you’re attending a Fall wedding, wear a longer dress with flats (so you can break it down on the dance floor) and a cashmere shawl. That looks so classic and works every time. If you’re attending a summer wedding, wear whatever dress you feel comfortable in. Whether its a romper, jumpsuit, skort, dress – it’s completely up to you.

I hope this helps as Wedding Season continues.
