A Hawaiian wedding sounds so romantic. Check the weather forecast for the time you will be there. Weather in December can vary on the different islands. A 5:30 in the evening wedding indicates dress up clothing but that means casual chic in Hawaii. A short dress or maxi dress in lace or a light weight fabric such as a silk, linen, chiffon or organza in a solid color or floral print would be appropriate. Sandals look stylish in warm weather climates. A jacket or shawl that coordinates with your dress is a must have in case the weather is cool or the reception venue is air conditioned.
Dressing Tips for Wedding Guests
Wedding guests want to look stylish and be in good taste. Knowing what type of wedding you will be attending is the first step. Is it a casual backyard wedding? A beach wedding? A barn wedding? A formal wedding? or a semi-formal wedding?
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.
The best strategy, if possible, check with the host or hostess regarding what their “dress code” means or check with other friends that you know have been invited to the party. See how they are interpreting the invitation dress code.
