When attending a wedding, there are a few main rules to follow, and some methods for determining everything else! The cardinal sin of attending a wedding as a guest is wearing white. Never choose a white dress, even one with small patterns on it. In recent years there have been an influx of stunning prom and evening gowns that are tan, beige, off white, etc. We highly suggest not wearing anything that remotely resembles a wedding gown. Many brides are opting for wedding dresses with much more color in them, so to not risk being close to the bride’s color of dress, just stay far away from any light neutrals. The next questions you’ll want to start asking are:
The type of dress worn to a beach wedding is usually vastly different than a wedding gown worn to a private estate. Wait until you receive the invite to determine the location, and go from there!
If the invitation says semi-formal, then you’ll want a knee length or tea length dress. Church is a good example of a location where people usually wear semi-formal. If the wedding is formal, assume it is somewhere between semi-formal and black tie event. You’ll need a floor length gown with nicer fabric.
The color dress you’ll wear in summer will likely be much different than winter, so look at the time of year and determine what colors will fit well with the weather.
And finally, drum roll please!
