Have you been invited to a wedding, but aren't quite sure of what to wear? The "rules" are different for different times of day, as well as different formalities (informal, formal, etc.) In general, you'll want to wear a dress (doesn't need to be full-length unless it's a very formal wedding and just about any color goes except for white. In this era of the asoebi craze with colours that you might never have thought you will hear in your lifetime – Canary yellow, tomato red, champagne and so on – It is important to try to be different sometimes. Or what if the wedding didn’t even come with an asoebi color or you didn’t just buy it and you still plan to stand out, I have a solution for you. Types of Weddings and What to wear to them.
  1. Informal Daytime: Short dress or suit (business attire OK for morning weddings) img1
  2. Informal Evening: Cocktail dress (which is any dressier dress -- for example, a little black dress -- that's not full-length.) cocktail-dresses-r7usdtwz
  3. Semi-formal Evening: Cocktail dress
  4. Formal Daytime: Short dress or suit. Hats and gloves optional (although it's rare to see hats and gloves at most weddings.) b6c72d45a8ac320dfa56768e180b81fa
  5. Formal Evening or Black-Tie: Long or dressy short cocktail (beading, glam accessories, wrap)
  6. Ultra-formal or White Tie: Long gown, extra glitz (furs, diamonds, etc.)
  Dos and Don'ts for Her 1. Don't wear white, because it competes with the bride. According to Clinton Kelly, co-author of Dress Your Best. "The only person in a shade resembling white should be the bride—unless she has asked everyone to wear white because she's decided to wear red sequins,"  There are several other colors you can wear that won’t compete with the bride’s. If you’re looking for that soft look, you can opt for light pink or blush. b99a1221635b0116e0e94f015db3263c 2. Weddings are a time for celebrations - Don't overdo black or sequins during the daytime. Anything too sparkly/gothic will make you stand out and not in a good way. 3. Don't worry about wearing the same colors as the bridesmaids or mothers. Sometimes that’s a good thing. 4. Do wear something feminine and appropriate, out of respect for your hosts. Denim, Clubwear, overtly sexy clothing (strapless, see-through, etc) doesn't belong at a wedding. Also, avoid plunging necklines as they attract attention – the attention belongs to the bride. If you have to ask if it's appropriate, it probably isn't. It’s a wedding, not a club party… Lay off the heavy cutouts and second-skin tight dresses. 5. Don’t wear a tiara. The bride should be the only princess at the wedding. tiara_10272 Leave this for the bride. 6. Don't wear opera-length gloves (to top of arm) with anything but sleeveless or strapless gowns. 26+fashion+in+black Keep it real simple and do take off gloves to eat or drink. 7. Do use good judgment if the invitation doesn't specify the formality of the event. A pastel suit or soft floral dress for daytime or a little black dress for evening (after 6 p.m.) will take you almost anywhere. face A cardigan/blazer tones down the floral prints a bit. 8.  Hats can be okay at an outdoor wedding but you have to watch the size. It is supposed to shield your face from the sun and not block the view of all the other guests sitting around you at the wedding. Fascinators are welcomed options. 9.  Even at a casual wedding use good judgment when it comes to getting dressed. Casual can mean a pretty sundress (like for a coastal or beach wedding but rarely means something as casual as jeans or shorts. Written By: joy adegboye
