Nobody wants to look inappropriately dressed at a wedding, and no matter your size is, sure everybody can be the best dressed guest in this cold season. From the church wedding to your most formal of nuptials, winter weddings can be very beautiful whether they are held inside or outdoors. Think rich autumnal earthy tones, gorgeous prints, and a little sparks of embellishment. Plus, since you prep for some chillier weather, complete the look with the right coat, wrap, blazer or jacket.
For those women with curves, just like the very basic fashion tips for this figure, always look for a wedding guest dress that is figure-flattering that makes you feel confidence, elegant, and comfortable. Depending on type of wedding ceremony the couple will be having, you obviously have numerous options to choose for this season. Learn “Plus Size Wedding Guest Dresses and Accessories Ideas” for your fresh suggestion.
Whether you are going for striking, vibrant prints, choosing more romantic plan with lace or floral prints, or planning with classic sheaths, make sure you understand some general rules for dressing an appropriate wedding guest dress especially for fall and winter:
- Give respect to the host by choosing elegant yet conservative attire, especially for a church wedding – or any religious ceremony. Select a dress, knee-length to tea-length. Anything shorter isn’t appropriate and a long gown may be too much. As for winter, add a wrap or bolero jacket if you are wearing a strapless gown. Avoid plunging necklines and high slits
- If you are invited to an outdoor wedding – even in the wintertime – follow the same rule of outdoor wedding guest dress for spring summer. Learn “Wedding Guest Attire: What to Wear to a Wedding (Part 3)” for general wedding guest dress fashion tips.
- Generally, for an outdoor venue, avoid a flowing skirt that can easily get caught by the wind. Choose chunky or wedge heels rather than stilettos so that you won’t sink into the ground. And especially for cold weather, add a fur wrap or cape. Though you might not want to cover up your dress, you also don’t want to freeze.
