Peak wedding season is just around the corner, so you may be receiving a string of invitations in the near future. No matter how many weddings you’ve been to, picking the right outfit can always be tough, especially when you have so little information to go on.
These basic wedding dress tips are all you need in order to avoid showing up overdressed or underdressed to the next wedding on your schedule. Over time, you’ll grow accustomed to interpreting wedding invitations, and applying those skills will surely make you the best-dressed attendee.
Avoid New Shoes
It can be tempting to pick up a new pair of shoes to look your best at an upcoming wedding, but wearing brand-new kicks to a wedding carries major risks. Instead, look for a pair you’ve worn enough to feel comfortable in for an entire afternoon.
If it’s an outdoor wedding, a pair of comfortable sandals could be the perfect choice. For a more formal wedding, consider bringing an extra pair of shoes to change into after the ceremony—don’t let your shoes hold you back from having a great time on the dance floor!
A great wedding outfit is often relatively muted, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find ways to make your look pop. Picking up a few of these trendy accessories will also make it easy to wear the same outfit more than once while changing up your accessories to keep it fresh.
Don’t Wear White or Red
Avoiding white may be the most established wedding dress code tip there is, but red is also an overly bold choice for the tone of most weddings. Check out this wedding inspiration album to find ideas for colors and outfits that have a more minimalistic feeling.
Reread the Invitation
If you’re having trouble gauging the tone of the event, the invitation is a great place to start. Its design will indicate the aesthetic that the couple is going for, and there may be explicit mention of a specific dress code. Formal, for example, generally means a dark or floor-length cocktail dress, while you can get away with a skirt or sundress at a casual wedding.
Determining what to wear what to a wedding can be confusing, especially if this is your first wedding season. Sticking to these wedding fashion tips will make it easy to find the perfect outfit, whether that’s in your closet or your favorite boutique.
