Guest attire? What to wear to a wedding.

What to wear as a wedding guest?

It's important to dress appropriately and show respect for couple on their special day. First thing to establish is if there is a dress code. If the invite states black tie, then don't turn up in a summer dress and vice versa.

Of course you have the classics also;

White: Avoid wearing white or any shade that closely resembles it, as this color is traditionally reserved for the bride.

Casual attire: Weddings are typically formal or semi-formal events, so avoid wearing overly casual clothing such as jeans, t-shirts, shorts, or flip-flops. Dress up to match the level of formality indicated on the invitation.

Revealing or provocative outfits: It's best to avoid outfits that are excessively revealing, as weddings are considered more conservative events. Opt for tasteful and modest attire to maintain the decorum of the occasion.

Black tie attire (if not specified): If the wedding invitation or dress code doesn't specify black tie, it's generally best to avoid wearing a full tuxedo or an overly formal gown. Reserve black tie attire for events that explicitly call for it.

Extremely flashy or attention-grabbing outfits: While it's okay to express your personal style, avoid wearing outfits that are excessively flashy, loud, or attention-grabbing. The focus of the day should be on the couple, and wearing something too attention-seeking may divert the attention away from them.

Casual footwear: Opt for formal or semi-formal shoes instead of casual footwear like sneakers or sandals. Choose dress shoes or heels that complement your outfit.

Remember, if you're unsure about the appropriate attire for a specific wedding, it's always a good idea to reach out to the couple or consult the dress code mentioned in the invitation.
