Whether you are Mother of the Bride or Groom, or attending a wedding this year, I am sure you have asked yourself, “What am I going to wear?”
You are not alone. Now with all the various locations and times of weddings, it can be even more confusing.
I am here to guide you with 3 tips to get started.
(1) Location, location, location:
Where the wedding takes place plays a big part in what is appropriate to wear.
A wedding in a big hotel or even a country club is going to be more formal.
A beach wedding is more casual and a garden wedding will be in between.
If the wedding is outdoors, consider wearing a long sundress and beware… no spiked heels since you will be sinking into the sand or grass.
(2) Time of day:
The key here is that night-time weddings are dressier.
Daytime weddings are informal or semi- formal. You can wear a 2 piece suit or top and satiny type of skirt, or a cocktail dress. It is best to avoid wearing black to a daytime wedding.
DON’T go ultra casual to a wedding… it is the Bride’s important day so respect her and the occasion!
(3) Invitation specific:
Many invitations specify the type of attire, yet you may still be wondering.
Casual: This may mean a beach wedding, a BBQ, a barn? These may not mean a long dress, however, it still means you need to dress up and the big change will be the shoes.
Cocktail: Here is pretty straight forward… a cocktail dress is the most appropriate. This also generally means it is not a floor length gown.
Black tie: If the invitation says Black Tie, you will see floor length gowns, yet you can be elegant in a cocktail dress, especially if it comes to the knee. Add your accessories here to take it to a higher level.
White tie: This is as formal as you can get!!
Casual dresses are from ZuZu Fashion Boutique in Barrie.
