Hi ladies! Happy Friday! I have a question/favor. I’m writing an article [more a how to] on what to wear to weddings. What are some big suggestions some of you can offer? I’ve got the don’t wear white, but am kind of stuck on a few more. It’ll be featured on the site! Just let me know if anyone has any good tips!

Don’t dress like the BMs!

If the invitation doesn’t specify a “casual” dress code – leave the jeans and t-shirts at home!

Don’t dress like you’re going to a club…or walking a beat!
Make sure the girls aren’t hanging out!

The best way to guarantee you won’t look like a Bridesmaid or Best Man is to wear a print. I also avoid wearing black, a colorful guest makes for more vibrant pictures

I disagree on avoiding black at weddings. For a formal evening wedding it’s often your best bet. I would say people need to really focus on what’s appropriate for the time and setting of the specific wedding, rather than just picking out a dress that they like to wear.

I see nothing wrong with wearing black either!
If you know that the wedding or the reception will be outdoors go prepared! A nice wrap or cardigan can make a huge difference if the weather is cooler. Likewise if it is extremely warm do not wear fabrics that are heavy and don’t breathe. Also a garden wedding is not the time to break out your stilletos.

For the record I didn’t say there was anything “wrong” with wearing black. I personally think its everyones fall back color because its easy and I try to avoid it.

I say that if the invite does not say casual, and it is not on the beach, guys should wear a suit.
I also think you need to dress appropriately for the ceremony. I was at a wedding this weekend where people wore shorts and flip flops to the daytime church ceremony and I guess changed for the formal reception. I thought it was pretty disrespectful.

I say as a female wedding guest, always have a flattering cocktail dress in a neutral color handy, just in case. Consider the season and formality of the invitation, if the dress code isn’t indicated then go with your cocktail dress. A cocktail dress in a dark color can also pass for black-tie events if need be.
For men, if a dress code isn’t indicated wear some kind of suit and tie or at least jacket and tie. If it’s summer time, it can be a light colored suit.
If the dress code says “Casual” or “Beach Casual” I would still wear maybe a less formal cocktail dress. I honestly don’t think you can ever be too dressy for a wedding.

For men: wear a suit and tie
For ladies: wear a fancy dress and shoes
Look like you put some thought into your outfit and didn’t just pull out the first think you saw in your closet that day!

I wore black to an evening wedding last year… and it turned out to be the bridesmaid color!!?!!? The invitations were pink and silver, the groomsmen were wearing a silver vest and tie, so I assumed the ladies would be in pink… Yikes!

I would say even if the wedding attire was listed as casual jeans and t-shirt’s aren’t acceptable. And don’t show up looking like a stripper, a dress that looks like a tube top is never appropriate…
