So once you hit your mid to late 20s, you will start getting invites to many weddings and I am here to help you find the perfect outfit. After being a bridesmaid at two weddings and also the fact that I am a fashion blogger, I can't help but notice what every female is wearing to the wedding. While some people look very elegant in their beautiful gowns, there are others who might have confused the wedding for a nightclub. Keep reading to find out the do's and don'ts aka the rules of what to wear to a wedding.
DON'T WEAR WHITE. Let me just get this out there, the bride and groom are the only ones to wear white the day of their wedding. Unless requested by those two, do not ever wear white to a wedding. Stop trying to take their shine away, its not your special day, it's theirs. If and when I ever get married, you will be escorted out. Bridezilla much? Well don't say I didn't warn you.
DO FOLLOW THE DRESS CODE. Most wedding invitations will state what the attire is such as Day Time Casual, Semi-Formal or Black Tie Event. For day time, these are usually beach or outdoor wedding. A cute knee length summer dress will do. Semi-Formal means cocktail dress, but not clubbing attire (don't mix the two) and black tie event is floor length gown.
DON'T WEAR ANYTHING REVEALING. So I understand not only are the single ladies looking forward to the bouquet toss but also finding love or even a fling with the groomsmen at the wedding. However, let's keep in mind you want to be a classy lady not the hooch of the night. This means no short dresses, no midriffs, no fully exposed cleavage. Keep it cute, boo.
