Satin is so beautiful and sensual. The best way to determine if a satin dress is appropriate for a July wedding is to determine location, time (day or evening) or whether it is formal or informal wedding. Summer weddings tend to be more casual than winter weddings. However if the wedding is late afternoon or evening or the wedding is formal (the invitation specifies black tie) a halter style satin dress should be awesome for a July wedding. Daytime weddings are usually more informal. Pastel colors, stripes or floral prints in light weight fabrics are more appropriate for summer wedding attire. Weddings are to celebrate and dress up. If the wedding ceremony will take place in a church wear a light weight shawl to cover your arms. If you cannot determine what dress ia appropriate ask the hostess.
What Should the Wedding Guest Wear?
Be a stylish wedding guest! Weddings are to celebrate, occasions to dress up. The wedding invitation provides the information to help you decide what to wear. Daytime (morning and afternoon) weddings are more casual than evening or formal weddings. Today any color is appropriate with the exception of white which is reserved for the bride.
Party Dress Codes
It is almost always exciting and fun when a party invitation arrives. However sooner or later we have to start to think about what we will wear. When types of “dress codes” are indicated such as “smart casual”, “semi-formal,” “vineyard casual”, “festive”, “cocktail chic” or etc. it can throw us for a loop. Where should one begin to figure out what any of these types of dress codes mean?
