Wedding season is already in full swing. Admittedly, it is one of our favorite times of year. We love everything wedding and we certainly love seeing our brides all dressed up in their Merrime gowns. Here are a few rules to remember when dressing as a guest for a wedding this season.
Don’t Steal The Show
Don’t steal the show by wearing white or something that distracts in any way from the bride on her big day. Also steer clear of wedding colors to avoid being mistaken as a member of the bridal party. If the wedding colors are a mystery to you, patterns are a safe bet.
Don’t Bare It All
Sure, weddings are a great opportunity to flaunt your favorite feature but do yourself a favor and stick to just one feature like your legs, shoulders, or back. To avoid going too revealing up top, an illusion neckline is a sexy but elegant look.
Pay Attention To Detail
Check the invite for clues on dress code. For black-tie affairs, the sky (and the knee) is the limit – nothing too far above the knee. For beach, light colors and flowing fabrics are key.
Play It Safe
When it doubt, play it safe somewhere in the middle. While long dresses can typically read more formal, a jersey or cotton material helps it read slightly more casual. On the other hand, a cocktail dress with embellishments like beading or lace can translate a dress with a shorter hem into something more formal.
