Wedding Flair: What to wear for that special day!
Have a wedding celebration coming up? Here’s your guide to what to wear and how to pull it all off, in gorgeous style. If there’s one thing we love about wedding celebrations, besides having the grandest of times with friends and family, it’s that they’re also the perfect excuse to dress up and strut in the loveliest of looks. Whether you’re the bride, a bridesmaid, or a guest, it’s a worthwhile opportunity to dress to the absolute nines.
When it comes to celebrations that take place at a tropical getaway, it’s always great to channel the vibe of the location or the venue. Long, wispy dresses always make a charming impression, especially when you’re wearing a print that stands out in an elegant way. Mixing this with statement elements such as beaded accessories and chic jewelry, you’re bound to stand out and look far from boring.
Intricate accessories imbibe an exotic spirit that matches any destination wedding. Style your exotic ensemble with comfortable wedges or flats that let you dance all night long from dusk ‘til dawn. Wedges or flats are great for beach or garden weddings so your heels won’t sink in.
When you’re looking for a more formal approach to wedding fashion, black and or white will never be an injustice. While the general rule is not to steal the bride’s thunder by wearing white, some don’t mind, but always make the effort to check-in with the soon-to-be-wed couple if this is something that would be okay with them, because nothing is more awkward than being the one who was insensitive enough for a wedding faux pas.
A sleek and seamless black number is an easy and amazing choice for more formal weddings, plus they’re effortless to style in a number of ways—go with a crisp white shirt with a black ball gown skirt, or you can go with a white bodysuit with a maxi skirt for an outdoor fête. Mix it up with colorful earrings or shoes and you’re sure to make a bold and sophisticated impression. Stilettos always come top of mind for formal events.
For weddings that are more pared-down and less dressy, opt to go with a charming cocktail dress that gives you a great balance. A shorter hemline is appropriate, but we would steer clear of ultra-short mini dresses that might leave you looking like you’re about to hit the club.
Look stylishly sharp for a subdued and sophisticated approach when it comes to civil weddings.
As a guest, remember that the day is all about the couple and how they’ve chosen to celebrate in a more discreet manner, which gives you a clue to do the same. Go ahead with that slip dress that you’ve been dying to wear, but top it off with a knit cardigan for a more feminine look, or go with a blazer for a more suitable take.
No matter what kind of wedding you’re attending, putting your best dress forward is a great way to showcase your personal style while having fun doing it! Whichever you choose, make sure it’s a testament of the real you, because when you look back at that special day, your outfit will always remind you of how you felt in that moment. Plus, pictures last forever so choose your look wisely.
