The sun is shining and the birds are chirping. Tons of bachelorette parties, bridal showers, and wedding invites are being sent out. That’s right, it is wedding season! For some of you, it probably already started in early Spring. We just started our wedding season last week and I wore this dress. One of the first things that pops in my head when a wedding approaches is what to wear. Unless you are part of the bridal party, what you wear is totally up to you.
What to Wear to a Wedding if You’re a Wedding Guest
1. Don’t wear a constricting dress.
You want to wear a dress with movement especially if you are going to hit up the dance floor. You want to feel comfortable in your dress while you bust out your moves. And you don’t want to worry about overexposing, constricting your movement, or potentially ripping your dress. I usually try to find flowy dresses. So when I saw this cold shoulder dress, I knew it was the perfect dress to wear for a wedding!
2. Wear comfortable and simple shoes.
Even if you are just a guest, you will be on your feet most of the time. You’ll be walking around greeting people you know and standing around until you can be seated for dinner. So investing in comfortable shoes makes a difference. I always choose simple styled shoes because I want my shoes to go with any dress. Plus, you can wear them outside of the wedding for other occasions. It is all about making good use of your money.
3. Wear a dress that makes you feel good not because it is trendy.
When you feel good, you will feel confident, and honestly, you will just shine without trying. Confidence is the best outfit to wear. So if a classic LBD is what you want to wear, go for it! Or if you want to wear a bright yellow dress because it is your favorite, go for it! Just don’t wear white 🙂
4. Simplify your accessories.
You want your accessories to compliment your outfit but not overpower it. I initially wanted to wear a necklace with this dress, but realized that a necklace would be too much and take away from the dress. So I opted for tassel earrings.
I hope this helps. Also, if you want more dress ideas, stay tuned! I will be showcasing more dresses this summer. Have you seen this yellow dress I featured last week? That is a totally great option!
