Finding an appropriate wedding outfit can be a huge headache. With all of the do’s and don’ts, it’s important to look elegant without disappointing the bride. If you’re stuck for ideas on what to wear for any upcoming weddings, here are some tips:
Rule number one is to wear a dress or skirt that sits on or below the knee. There are three lengths to choose from, as we all know: knee length, midi length and maxi length. But this is the first hurdle, as if a dress doesn’t sit at one of these lengths it is best to get it altered by a seamstress. Wearing a dress that is too long for example can make you look shorter. For a petite figure a knee length dress is the most flattering, whereas tall, slim women will suit a maxi dress. As a fail-safe choice for all figures, the most forgiving shape is an A-line.
Before you start shopping for the perfect wedding outfit, it’s best to check with a member of the wedding party or even the bride herself. There may be an unusual colour theme, or she may want you to choose a colour that complements the rest of her wedding. Although ultimately it is up to you what colours you wear, clashing with the wedding party is best to be avoided. And the golden rule for any wedding guest is to never wear white… but you already knew that! On-trend colours for this season that will take you right through to next year are purple and muted tones such as dove grey or cappuccino.
The destination of a wedding will likely influence the style of outfit you choose. Think about where you will be spending the day, whether that’s inside or on a windswept beach. It’s vital that you are comfortable in what you’re wearing as it’ll be a long day. Keep warm in a smart cover up such as a bolero or structured jacket, and don’t get tempted by beautiful shoes! They should be stylish, but opt for a mid or low heel or even a wedge to avoid achy feet from ruining the day.
