It’s wedding season!
I adore weddings – absolutely adore them. I have had so much fun at work recently helping everybody pick out items to wear as a wedding guest. While I always enjoy helping people shop, as a wedding guest it can be extremely stressful. I decided to put together a bit of inspiration for the wedding season.
Different regions and age groups have varying ideas on what is appropriate for weddings and it is important to keep this in mind when you are deciding on what to wear. For instance, I live in a rural area so often it is appropriate to wear jeans to farm weddings. Yes – I did say farm weddings. By rural area i actually meant the middle of nowhere 😛 You also need to consider the venue. What may be appropriate for a vineyard or museum wedding may not make as much sense at a traditional church wedding.
As for colors, try and stay away from bright white (especially if your wearing lace or floor length dresses) and try not to wear the same color as the wedding party. You can typically glean the colors from the invitation. When in doubt, you can always contact somebody you know close to the family and ask. A lot of people believe you should stay away from red, as well.
My personal favorite places to get cute wedding guest outfits are Dillard’s, LuLu’s, an Asos. I favor pastels, lace, and florals.
