There’s always something exciting about weddings. After all, it is a celebration of love and an event that collects a number of relatives and friends. Weddings are special events that need to be celebrated in style so we chose our Sunday best for them. However, while we do that, it is important to stay within the acceptable standards of smart.
We share with you some items that you should never wear at weddings.
1. Tiaras, Flower crowns and statement head pieces
Everyone understands the pressure to stand out, because they do want that so that the bride and groom are sure that they honored the invitation. However this should be done in a subtle manner. A statement embellished crown or floral head piece typical of Instagram and Snap Chat will make you look like you wanted to steal the bride’s spot.
2. All white head to toe
White is such a special colour. Putting on an all white outfit when you are a guest may however be a bit too much as it is mostly known as the colour for the bride. There are so many colours that can do a good job. If you must wear white, try to mix and match it with a purse, jewellery or shoes of a different colour.
3. Skimpy outfits
Everything from too short to low cut dresses are a total ‘no’ for weddings. We understand you are single and are plotting to hook up with a potential husband which isn’t bad. However it’s best to wow guys in something less revealing.
Denim is obviously too casual for weddings. It doesn’t show that you are cool but that you did not respect someone’s wedding. These are better left for more casual ceremonies like a birthday party. Please Stay away from denim.
5. Dark colours
Black is not an appropriate color for weddings. Go for something more cheerful. Colors such as blue, orange, green are better options. If you choose colors like black, blue, army green and so on, make sure to accesorise them well so that you stand out.
6. Over dressing
This is the most bizarre of them all. Many fashion savvy ladies have fallen prey of it. You go to your friends wedding wearing glitter, countless accessories and heavy makeup. You should never try to out dress the bride. Wait for your own wedding and shine like a diamond then.
