Never, Ever Wear This to a Wedding
We’ve all seen those tacky things people wear to weddings. Showing too much skin, trying to outshine the bride or not taking time to dress the part, all these habits are downright offensive. And you wonder why you’re not receiving any more wedding invitations. Start with our blog in case you’ve run out of ideas on what to wear to a wedding.
With plenty of clothing options to choose from, please stay away from these 12 wedding fashion blunders.
Follow these simple rules on wedding guest attire and the invitations will keep on coming.
It’s never a good idea to wear jeans, whether the wedding is at the beach, in your backyard or at a garden next to your home. Dress up in something more decent for a casual ceremony. Most people will feel offended especially if you show up with your favorite jeans and a t-shirt.
For some reason, men can get away with black at weddings but it’s a no-go color for women. Unless you’re mourning your friend’s nuptials, there’s absolutely no reason why you should be wearing black from top to bottom.
Tones of makeup
Putting on too much makeup can be perceived as a desperate call for attention. You’ll get people staring, but you probably wouldn’t want to know what they’re thinking. Get makeup professionally done for the wedding day.
Donning white dresses is a surprisingly common mistake many women make in a bid to try and upstage the bride. Unless you’re Pippa Middleton, Kate Middleton’s sister who was bounded by tradition to wear a white dress, stay away from white.
Even if you’re attending your friend’s wedding ‘single and ready to mingle’ stay away from skimpy clothes. Anything that is too tight, too shirt or showing too much should be out of bounds. Wearing skimpy clothes is just embarrassing.
Ever seen guys at a wedding who try to outshine the groom? Unless the bride and groom specified that it’s a black tie event, save your tuxedos for another occasion. Be polite and don’t show up looking better than the groom.
Your friend’s wedding is no place to take your business persona. Don’t wear anything that makes you look too official like it’s just another day at the office. Ditch your boring suit for a vibrant dress on your friend’s big day.
Over the top accessories
Some people just get it wrong when it comes to accessorizing. Do you really need to wear the big hat, heavy jewelry, obnoxious eye shadow and purse? Tone it down a little bit. Less is more.
Unless you’re like 15, sagging pants on a grown man look very unpleasant. Don’t embarrass the friends who invited you to their wedding since they’ll have older relatives and friends at the ceremony.
Backless dress with a visible bra
Ladies don’t wear dresses that reveal your bra straps at the back. If you really have to wear that dress, cover the back by adding a cute jacket or just do away with it for your own comfort. You’ll have more fun if you feel comfortable and smart.
