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.
