The number one rule when attending a wedding is to not wear white. Chances are you’ll offend the bride and no one wants to have that on their conscience! If you turn up in a white dress, people will think you’re trying to upstage the bride and chances are, you’ll never live it down!
The colour black is commonly associated with funerals and given that weddings are about celebration, try and opt for a colour that’s not associated with death.
#3 Anything Too Casual
Many informal summer weddings are very casual but that’s not to say you should turn up in a pair of denim jeans or a tracksuit. You’ll be expected to appear in photographs so make sure you look the part as you wouldn’t want to risk upsetting the bride, especially if she’s forked out over £1,000 for you to be photographed.
#4 Anything Too Raunchy
Okay, so you’ve not long purchased a short mini dress with a plunging neckline and cut outs on the side and haven’t had chance to wear it yet. DO NOT wear it to the church as that probably won’t go down too well.
#5 Big Accessories
Fascinators complete any wedding outfit but make sure they are not too big as this might block the view of the person sitting behind you. If the brides Grandmother misses the vows being exchanged because you’re headpiece is in the way, it won’t go down too well.
#6 Killer Heels
Yes, it may complete your outfit but it’s not worth the pain if you’re unable to dance the night away so if you absolutely insist on wearing them, make sure you also bring flats to change into as the night draws in. It’s better to be prepared than in pain.
