Wedding Guest - Do's and Don'ts

Posted by RUTH GEORGE on

Got a wedding (or six) coming up and struggling to find something that is right for the occasion?

DO... Choose a midi length dress over mini
Midi length is a super flattering and elegant length plus it's perfect for wedding guest attire!


DON'T... Wear new shoes

Choose shoes that you will be able to move in and won't kill you after half an hour. It's best not to wear brand new shoes to a wedding as you won't have had a chance to break them in. 

DO...Check the dress code in advance
Black tie or casual day time wedding? Checking the dress code is important so you don't turn up to a day time wedding in a full length sequin gown or vice versa - eek. 

DO...Always have a little black dress in your wardrobe

Avoid the last minute wardrobe panic by always having a trusty black dress on hand to help in tricky situations. Add a few accessories to liven it up such as coloured or printed court shoes.

DON'T... Wear white, cream, ivory etc...
Little obvious, no? Wearing white can be considered a major sin in the world of weddings if you are a guest. Always check the dress code in advance if the bride and groom have asked for a specific dress code. Remember, it's the brides day!

DO... Wear jewel tones
Pastels can be great for wedding guests, however jewel tones such as emerald can look great, especially for Summer. 

DON'T... Over-do embellishement on dresses for day-time weddings. If you want a bit of sparkle in your outfit, use accessories to add that extra something.
