It's wedding season which means it's time to visit the formal dressing stores and get the most exquisite piece of clothing you have worn in a long time. However, some not-so-strict yet agreeable rules are to be followed for wearing the right kind of dress to a wedding.
The event is an important one for the bride and groom, so it's best to give them the time to shine and take over the event happily. In this instance, your clothing should be elegant yet toned down so as not to outshine the bride. It's good to have something comfortable on but not so much that it out rules the said guidelines of wedding attires.
Here are some tips to remember the next time you need an exquisite Party Dress for a wedding:
See if there is a Dress Code
There is most often a dress code for everyone attending a wedding if the bride and groom are more of the perfectionist type. If this happens, you may have to go along with the code. However, make sure to add in some of your own style elements as well. Something like a lower back or a stylish slight cut on the end of the dress will help you shine in the uniform-like attire that everyone else is wearing in the scene. If there is no dress code, ensure to ask the hosts if there are any rules to follow. If none, you can just go with your own pick for a fabulous dress.
Understand the Functions Demands
Often, the bride and groom aren't that emphasizing and let you choose your own style to flaunt in their event. But now that you have enough space to choose from different colours and designs keep an image of how family members will be dressed. Try to come up with a fashion piece that goes with other people's style to not look out of place. If the families are laid back, make sure not to dress up a lot and if it's the opposite, wear the fanciest dress.
Flaunt Some of Your Personality
No matter what, never lose yourself in the process. Brides can be a little pushy in the time before their wedding and may drive you to put on a particular dress or style that is out of your comfort zone, fashion demands, or anything else that doesn't settle well with you. When this happens, ensure not to upset your bride friend as it can have consequences, but still, try to have some of you in the dress you decide you buy. Have a say no matter what.
Wear a Light Colour
Especially at daylight weddings. Weddings may be the most emotional of events, and almost everyone close to the to-be-wed feels a little bit of a rush of emotions throughout. For this reason, wedding attires should always be light colours that can compliment the tone of the event perfectly. Light colours also look elegant and classy for such graceful occasions. Hence choose any of the pastel colours or a shade of nude that works well with your skin and figure. Nude tones are especially in season, but a little pop of colour won't look bad either, like silver or gold.
Go for a Midi
The best length for a wedding event is midi. You can never go wrong with a midi dress in an event that demands sophistication. It's the right amount of skin and looks fantastic as well. A longer dress can bind your beautiful skin, and shorter can be too much for some receptions. Ensure to style the right accessories and heels to go with your midi to bring out its classiness.
Show off Skin Appropriately
If we are talking about skin, the most important area is between the shoulders. This beautiful part of the body needs to be shown off in the right way so that it doesn't give off the wrong message on your fashion statement. For this reason, wear a dress with a nice neck drop and show off your neckline. Wear sleeveless or neckless if it feels appropriate.
Don't Try to Rebel
Weddings are the perfect events to rebel and show off your wicked side by overstepping the dress code by going for either too comfortable or overdressing. In both cases, you get to have all eyes on you but you may lose your friendship or relationship with the bride or groom. So it's best to stay within the given guidelines and still slay.
However, there are several options for a comfier wedding and elegant attires that don't have tight dresses and high heels. You can choose a classy-looking full bodysuit or a Jumpsuit to maintain your comfort and do something a little different for the event and still look up to par with the requirements.
