Do’s and Don’ts on how to dress for a wedding

Don’t wear white. OBVIOULSY

Don’t look better than the bride
What we mean by that is, don’t overdo your makeup and hair and overall appearance. It is not your day.

Don’t dress too exiguous or too casual
You don’t want to show up in a tight, cutout mini dress. Number 1 rule for a wedding is, don’t steal the show! A short, animal print dress will most likely do so. Also, don’t ever wear ANYTHING sweat. It is disrespectful to the bride and groom. Show them that you are celebrating their special day. Also, you don’t want to be that person that looks like a homeless in all the pictures.

Dress colorful but make sure the bridesmaids wear a different color
People, especially the photographer, will constantly confuse you as a member of the wedding party. There are so many different colors. Just check in with the bride or the bridesmaids and make sure. Also, it’s really awkward.

Black is the color of death… so avoid black dresses and such
Unless you are a man and wearing a black suit with a colored shirt, stay away from black. (Unless the invitation says black and white). Weddings are happy, bright events. You can finally wear that pink dress without being over the top. Go for it!

Do not wear any jean or sweat pieces
It is not elegant and disrespectful. Period.

Do not wear flip flops
If it is a hot day and you don’t want to wear heels all day, choose some cute, elegant flat sandals.

No sequins and glitter
Again, this day is not about you. When you look like a disco ball, you will most likely earn a lot too much attention.

Tip: bring a pair of flats and a snack on your purse
