Since we’re in the thick of wedding seasons, getting dressed for a wedding is tricky. For ladies, there is never enough right attire to wear to any occasions, let alone weddings. Getting dressed up for wedding does not have to be a fashion catastrophe. However, weddings are especially important formal events for women as they need to start thinking what to wear during that day. If you’re wondering what to wear to a wedding as a guest, it’s always best to dress up rather than down. Here are some basic ground rules worth referencing before you figure out exactly what to wear to wedding.

  1. Follow wedding theme/dress code

In some weddings, the wedding theme will be stated in the invitation. Therefore, the only right thing to do would be to dress accordingly to the stated wedding theme. But when those wedding invitations come in the mail, and they do or don’t include a dress code, could be hard to elucidate what should you wear then. Perhaps if you’re still really unsure what attire to wear, ask around to see if what you intend to wear matches what others would be wearing.

  1. Nothing is too sexy

Understated but stylish looks are keys. Nothing over the top and try to wear something fitted. I know we’re all for showing a little skin, but a wedding is not the place to wear your shortest or lowest cut look. Moreover, many weddings take place in a house of worship, where covering up is more appropriate and odds are that there will be a lot of the couple’s family at the wedding. In order to appear respectful, avoid showing a lot of skin and g for a more modest look. If you wanted to, keep that sexiest look for any other night out on the town.

  1. Don’t dress in white

Wearing white is by far the biggest mistake that can be made by a wedding guest because it is obvious to match with the bride. This may be one of the more obvious clothing choices to avoid as it seems relatively common knowledge these days. Besides, no guest should steal the attention away from the bride, it is her special day after all! Anyway keep it simple, if there’s white, look for an alternative!

  1. Avoid being too casual

Regardless of how casual the dress code is it’s never acceptable to wear denim, shorts, or anything that is not appropriate for the occasions. Remember that this is the bride and groom’s special day. Moreover, as a wedding guest, it is important to show respect towards the bride and groom. Show your gratitude by following the rule of their wedding.
