Attending a wedding is a super exciting time, and we know you want to be the best dressed there! So, we are here to give you a few tips for dressing as a wedding guest, so you can look amazing, feel comfy and also confident. Every wedding has slightly different dress codes, so make sure to bare that in mind when deciding exactly what to wear, as it is the bride and grooms special day afterall and you can help them to make it exactly what they want it to be. If you’re really unsure what to wear, just double check with the bride if you know them well enough and that will clear up all of your concerns.
Our very first tip is definitely the most important when it comes to dressing as a wedding guest, which is avoiding white! Everyone knows that you absolutely shouldn’t wear white (in any various shade, such as cream or ivory) to a wedding, as that colour is reserved for the bride and potentially bridesmaids. Unless you are specifically asked to wear white by the bride, it is seen as an attempt to upstage the bride, which is a major no-go always. It’s their special day and they’ve been kind enough to let you be a part of it, so avoid white at all times.
Wear Something Comfortable
Our next tip is to wear something comfortable. As much as you want to look amazing, you also want to make sure that you can make the most of the day, and if your dress is too tight or short, you might feel uncomfortable. So, go through your collection of night out dresses, or if you are buying something new, we love a midi dress. They sculpt your figure and make you feel amazing, plus if you go for one with a stretchy fabric you know you will feel super comfortable all day and night. If you’re not a dress person, then style your party bodysuits with high waisted trousers or a midi skirt for the same effect. You’ll really thank yourself when you choose something that looks good and feels good, we promise!
Pack Some Flats
One of the best tips we can give you when dressing as a wedding guest is to invest in some roll up pumps that you can fit in your bag. If you’re a heel lover, you’ll likely want to wear them in the daytime for all the photos, but when it comes to dancing, there’s nothing worse than having to keep your heels on! Plus, it’s a bit risky to go bare foot, as there is always someone who drops a glass and there will be bits on the floor. So, these roll up pumps are only cheap and they do actually roll up really small, so they won’t be an inconvenience to you throughout the day but can really help you to enjoy the whole of the evening. This is such a game changer, you won’t be able to believe that you’ve never used them before!
