So you have been invited to your friend’s wedding? The biggest question about the event will be what to wear during the joyous occasion? Getting the correct attire is a trick between remaining subtle and looking just attractive. There are some things to remember when dressing for a day time wedding.
It IS The Bride’s Day! The attention should be all on the bride. This means no one should look better or stand out from the crowd. This means no whites. Long gowns and maxi dresses that appear too cool should also be avoided no matter how well you look in them you can wait for your day. It is also a bit of being a kill joy wearing black to a wedding.
Behave in churchRespect the couple’s beliefs. If they take their faith seriously and want a church ceremony, be modest for the church service. Very short skirts and exposing too much skin should be avoided. So should very deep cleavages. Keep sunglasses off your eyes in church too.
Dress for the weather In winter you can dress up in furs. If it is summer, wear colors. Bright colors work best and add to the cheer of the occasion. No matter well you feel about the weather, do not wear jeans to a wedding. Make some effort to honor your friends’ wedding. AccessorizeThe jewelry you wear shows your taste. You do not have to spend too much to look glamorous. The trick is in knowing how to match your outfit with your jewelry pieces. A simple neck chain and earrings with well-done gems will be okay.
Children and pets If you are to tag along the kids, do not dress them in white. For kids between 3-6 yrs., it is okay to dress them up in clothes they can play in. it would be a bit of overkill to dress kids in heels. Simple hairstyles suffice for kids. With children, it is about how comfortable they are lest they become restless and start bawling. If you never dress up your pet, trying it during the wedding day will only frighten the poor animal. You can opt to give them a thorough cleaning over, trim the fur and nails. The Gentlemen Picking an outfit is always easier on the gents as you can wear your everyday suit in case there is nothing else at hand. Khakis with semi casual shirts also make for a great preppy look. A professorial look pulled off in chinos also works great.
