So, you’ve got invites to weddings stuck all over your fridge and that means you’re already thinking of what to wear, the jewellery to use, and even the kind of makeup to wear. I can imagine that you already have a budget or something close to it so that you know exactly how much it is you will be spending. You’re already dreaming of the shoes too but guess what? There are some things that you definitely should never wear to a wedding.
And I’ve got a list of 5 things you should never ever wear to a wedding;
- A WHITE DRESS
You know there’s always that one woman who shows up in ivory–and drives the bride to an early grave. At the very least, keep your fabrics in the taupe or blush territory, and save that white lace number for a graduation or garden party.
- A PAIR OF BRAND-NEW STILETTOS
We know, it’s your one chance to get really dressed up. But remember: You will be walking from table to table and you will be dancing till midnight. If you haven’t adequately broken in those heels yet, you’re asking for trouble. Either make sure to wear them in beforehand or choose a more sensible pair from the start.
- ANYTHING TOO REVEALING
Even if you think something looks good straight-on in front of the mirror, make sure to do a chair (and stairs) check. Weddings are a time of support–not a time for other guests to gossip about your Spanx line.
- ANYTHING OUTSIDE THE DRESS CODE
You may have the fiercest little cocktail frock you’re dying to debut, but the dress code may be black-tie optional. And in that instance, you’re better off in a long gown (so you don’t have any chance of feeling underdressed).
- JEWELRY THAT JINGLES
Quiet church. Loud bangles. Think about it. Stick to statement earrings instead.
WHAT YOU SHOULD WEAR: PANTS
Yes! Pants are A-OK at a wedding. In fact, a tailored jumpsuit and formal jewelry will make you the trendiest one at this shindig. (Not to mention, the only one who can truly master “a little bit softer now.”)
