You Are Invited: What to Wear for a Wedding, if You Are a Guest

Read min


Choosing a dress for the wedding is a stressful process. Not only a bride but also her relatives and friends try to do their best to find the right dress. If the wedding is held in one color and style, preparations could entail much more time. In this case, you’ll face a long shopping trips, looking for a suitable outfit. However, recently, many people refuse this concept, so as not to burden guests. But if there is no dress code, you can successfully focus on the black tie, cocktail or just to show imagination. How to choose the dress to steal the spotlight, but not to outshine the bride? We’re sharing examples of perfect dresses for a wedding.

First of all, give up the white color, as well as milk and cream shades: otherwise you may be confused with the bride, and she will unlikely enjoy it. You also shouldn’t choose outfits in black, because we are talking about a bright and happy event. The rest of the color palette is at your disposal. For example, all powdery tones will look advantageous – dusty rose, camel and grey. But don’t forget about bright colors: the hue of saffron, the color of orange peel and violet are among the designers’ favorites this season

A baby doll dress was always considered traditional for bridesmaids, but don't mindlessly follow outdated stereotypes. It is better to give preference to the A-line dress. Model with high waist, one shoulder dresses, dresses with romantic draped or balloon sleeves will help you hit the wedding party. And if you want to create a more sensual look, pay attention to models with a feminine lace.

Dress should not be too provocative, so be critical when choosing the length of the mini or deep-V. Meanwhile, the dress should not be too strict – we are talking about the holiday after all. The perfect compromise would be a sexy pink bandeau dress from Monique Lhuillier or a sparkling, like champagne, dress from Jenny Packham.

No doubt, the main star of the evening is the bride, but this does not mean that during the celebration you can't shine. A dress, embroidered with sequins, will look advantageous. If the bride doesn’t mind, you can opt for a model in a rich pink, gold or silver color.

A more concise option is a monochrome maxi dress, but in this case, don't be shy: choose a model with a rounded high slit or a strapless dress. By the way, pat attention to the trendy colors – emerald green, classic blue, or lemon yellow.
