If you’ve already worn the same dress once (or twice), now’s the time to give things a refresher, whether it’s print or plain, try the bright shade of yellow for a refreshing touch on your attire.

Little black dress or little white dress can be tricky to wear to a wedding. Make sure the host is fine with guests wearing these two colors, and even though the couple is fine with it, always think of a short – knee length – dress especially if the bride is wearing a long gown. Keep your LBD or LWD simple and chic, with less glam jewelries or details so that you won’t outshine the bride. Actually, there’s nothing better and practical than putting on your most flattering little black or white dress, and you can be assured that no matter what year it is, it’s always in style. For a safety look, cute cocktail dress in black and white can also be an option.

Wedding guest attires aren’t always synonymous with dress. If you want to wear a skirt, trousers or even a jumpsuit then go ahead. Judge it on the type of wedding or the venue and the weather. Sometimes a dress isn’t always right.  Make sure your trousers are tailored to give that elegant and formal look. Pair the bottom with a dressy top, whether it’s sleeveless, long sleeves, or crop top. Depending on the formality of the wedding, sometimes you are allowed to wear a nice shirt paired with your full or tutu skirt. One most important thing is you’ve got to really understand the type of the wedding you are going to attend.

Different styles of cocktail dress will surely provide us plenty different looks to a wedding. Are you going to don a classic sheath dress, or chic A-line dress, flowy pleated maxi dress, or even a trapeze dress, weddings are definitely a chance for you to dress up. Just bear in mind your outfit should be comfortable that you have to be able to sit – and dance – in the dress. All of these dresses can be easily paired with metallic sexy heel, sparkling jewelries, or statement accessories depending on the wedding dress code.

As for additional accessories such as outerwear or fascinator, wear them when the type of the venue seems to ask for that. Winter weddings or outdoor wedding with sun, wind and heat usually call for warmer clothing or coverage such as blazer or cardigan – or tights if it’s winter. Opt for a tailored blazer if the wedding calls for semi-formal or formal occasion in the afternoon, while cardigan can be worn for more casual, afternoon wedding. Don’t wear outwear that evokes casual look such as bomber, leather or denim, or moto-bike jacket.

While wearing a fascinator or hat to a wedding is fun and festive, keep your fascinator low key, tasteful and slightly conservative in order to not distract from the bride and groom. Although some says it’s not common to wear fascinator these days, actually this fashion curiosity has made increasingly frequent appearances – at weddings, christenings and race meetings – thanks, in part, to the Duchess of Cambridge. Plus, they are so pretty and stylish as you can also pull together your look so that you arrive to your friend’s big day looking perfectly poised. But, of course, opt for this cute headpiece only if you feel comfortable with it.

Floral and lace are without a doubt the most forgiving elements of a wedding guest outfit to enhance that romantic, feminine look to your attire. You can’t go wrong with floral prints and lace when attending to a wedding.  For a modern look, don’t go too matchy-matchy. Do not wear one color head to toe, instead put incongruous things together with two matching elements.

Maxi, midi, or mini, sure there are plenty of outfit options to wear at a wedding. It’s always in style and looks flattering on almost everybody, but up first, find out the dos and don’ts about wearing an outfit to one of life’s brightest events. For example, no jeans, anything too sexy or revealing – especially if you opt for mini outfit make sure the wedding is not very conservative –, anything torn, with holes, stained, too big or too small for you, and anything strapless to a religious wedding.

    Where can I buy the sheat dress the White one on the right with one sleeve please.

    1. dee-nee says:

      Well according to the blogger, the dress is one shoulder lace dress from Dresslux (SS 12 collection) which obviously already sold out
      But I found a few similar lace dress in white (or off-white) you might like to consider:
      – two from JCPenney > Simply Liliana One-Shoulder Lace Wedding Dress and One-Shoulder Lace Wedding Dress (both are pure white)
      Gina Bacconi Bouquet Guipure Dress (light beige) at House Of Fraser
      White One Shoulder Lace Dress at Sheinside (pure white)
      Emilio Pucci One-shoulder macramé lace mini dress at The Outnet (pure white)

      However, I specially like this Adrianna Pappel lace dress (although it’s not one shoulder but look pretty and beautiful)

      That’s all I can help Tyrene,
      Thanks for your comment and have a great day 🙂
