Wedding Wear

Springtime is here, and you know what that means---WEDDING SEASON! I actually just attended a wedding about two weeks ago, and don't have another one until August. But I know so many people that are swamped with going to weddings over the next few months...so I thought it would be fun to put together a guide for attire. Hopefully after reading this and checking out my suggested looks you'll have a better idea as to what is appropriate and you won't stare in your closet for hours trying to come up with something to wear.

A couple other standard rules we have for wedding wardrobe---
~Don't wear white...leave that to the bride. But it your dress has white in the pattern (like black and while stripes or something like that) we say wear it. Just don't show up in an all white (or ivory) dress.
~Don't wear something that is too short or too tight. You aren't going to a club!
~Lighter colors are usually better for day weddings. Darker colors for evening events.
~If there is no set dress code take in consideration where the ceremony/reception are taking place, as well as the time of day.
~It's better to be over dressed than under dressed. But be smart about this...don't show up to a beach wedding in a gown. That's just silly!

I have never before been to a wedding; though I think I would favor a Dressy Casual attire - very fun!! :)
