What To Wear To A Wedding if You’re Tall


back to blog

It’s that time of year again, our social calendars are filling up, and we are slowly running out of outfit ideas for the upcoming wedding season.

With the ever-changing fashion rules, today’s wedding guests can wear a lot more than what they used to, including the colour black. Giving you complete freedom over your styles. Don’t worry though we have created the ultimate blog to help you along the way, with stunning dresses and jumpsuits to fill your occasion wear collection.

So, if you’re needing some outfit inspiration, read on to find the ideal wedding guest outfits for tall ladies and more!

What Not To Wear At A Wedding

Weddings over the years have had fewer and fewer outfit rules, which is great, but can make things more complicated when you’re on the hunt for the perfect outfit. As we all want to be is the best dressed wedding guest. Here’s a few tips on what not to wear at a wedding to help you narrow down your search:

  • Don’t Wear White: If you’re wondering what colour to wear at a wedding, we suggest anything but white. Or something similar to white, including cream, off-white, and very pale blue. This colour is reserved for the bride only.
  • Avoid Denim: It’s in everyone’s best interest if denim is left in your wardrobe for one day. If you have nothing else to wear, then you can wear it but certainly avoid rips and baggy boyfriend jeans.
  • Plunging Necklines: Even if it is the most casual of weddings, we recommend keeping necklines to v-neck at most. Seeing as it’s a family event, it’s best to keep as modest as possible and save that plunge dress for another day.

What To Wear To A Wedding As A Guest

What Shoes To Wear At A Wedding

Choosing what to wear on your feet at a wedding is pretty important and sets the mood for your day. There’s nothing worse than being uncomfortable on your feet and developing blisters on a day where you will be stood up a lot, and of course, dancing! We recommend breaking in your shoes a week or so before the big day and having shoes with added padding to support the soles of your feet.
