No, this is not a post asking how I can tellall my huests that they cant wear x, y or z lol.
I was at a friends wedding earlier this month and it was beautiful. Gorgeous venue, decoratioms, bride was lovely. But I swear I have never seen so many people in shorts extreme booby dress, and shorts. Ome girl was wearing a tube top and denim shorts o.0. Oh and bra straps everywhere! Or bright bras umder sheer backless dresses. What?
My personal rule of thumb for semi formal weddings and evem casual weddings : is this nice enough for homecoming. Im young so the reference maybe seems silly for older brides.
Anywho what are your personal guidelines when dress to be a guest?

Depending on formality, it’s a matter of would I wear this to an audition?

For me it really depends on the formality of the event. Generally I ask myself if I could wear it to the office or not. If the answer is yes, then I’ll wear it to the wedding. I wouldn’t necessarily wear office attire to a wedding (no suits or pants and tops), but if it’s a dress that I would find appropriate for the office, I’m comfortable wearing it to the wedding. Plus if I can get a dress that I can wear again, then I have an excuse to buy more dresses!

I usually dress pretty nicely but my rule is would I wear on this for a date night? Meaning no jeans, shorts, t-shirts, tank-tops, etc. Usually I go with a flowery dress, cocktail dress, or slacks and nice shirt dressed up with nice jewerly. I never let my undergarments show, EVER, I hate seeing bra straps, it’s just gross. And when it comes to showing off certain areas of my body, if I can’t wear it infront of my dad I shouldn’t wear it to a wedding.

- Wedding: July 2012 - Catholic Church
For me, it’s would I wear this in front of my grandparents and to church (we had to dress up for church).
ETA: This means no visible bra, minimal cleavage, shortest thing is just above the knee. It’s always a dress or a skirt and a blouse. Depending on the formality of the wedding, that dictates the fabric.

I dress according to the same rules as when I attend a colloquium in university (not too much cleavage, elegant and classy). I’m not going to a bar with my single friends, I’m going to attend a special event and need to take it seriously and be respectful of other people’s feelings.
