Happy Thursday loves! We still have one more month of summer – which means some of you may have some more summer weddings to attend. Now that I have reached my twenties, more and more people are getting married (so sweet and weird lol). If you have never been to a wedding as a millennial, do not fret! Here are some the of tips I have learned as a new comer to weddings.
To wear white or to not wear white, that is the question
It is an unwritten rule to not wear white at a person’s wedding. The idea behind this rule is that if a guest is wearing white, you are taking away from the bride’s day. Needless to say, couples are becoming more and more unconventional when it comes to their wedding day. If you are hesitant to wear white, don’t be feel silly to ask the bride whether or not she will mind (because sometimes, the bride will sincerely not care). The dress that I am wearing in these pictures can be found here. If for any reason, the bride does to want you to wear white, be respectful and rock your favorite color instead! Below are some of my favorite dresses from Banana Republic and Ann Taylor. I like to shop here because they offer petite styled clothing and their selections are timeless. 😉
Location, location, location
When you are trying to figure out what you should wear to a wedding, consider where it is going to be held. What you are going to wear at a wedding taking place in a church is going to be much different from a wedding that is at the beach. Also keep an eye out for the weather forecast the day of the wedding.
Shoes are a girl’s best friend
The shoes you pick to wear to a wedding are just an important as the outfit. I hate being in uncomfortable shoes at a wedding (especially after all the dancing). When in doubt, bring an extra pair of flats in dance in. I love espadrille wedges because we are super comfortable and give you some extra height. If you have a wedding outside, a thin, tall heel is not going to do you any favors! I love these wedges from Marc Fisher. You can purchase a similar pair from Marc Fisher here. If you want an option that is under $100, Steve Madden has wedges that come in 4 colors (including rose gold).
Keep it classy
I say this with love, not judgement. Remember that when you are at a wedding, you are a guest of the bride and groom’s special day. Be respectful. When you select your outfit, pick dresses and tops that flatter your body without looking too casual (showing a lot of skin is great for summer outings and festivals, not so much for weddings). Nonetheless, you never know who you are going to meet (at any social gathering). As such, you want to present yourself with grace and poise at all times.
