Hot pink is a fabulous color. Colored dresses are upbeat and beautiful at weddings. You can wear any color dress, except white*, that is in good taste to a wedding. A black tie wedding says formal and traditional. You can wear a cocktail dress or dressy separates to afternoon weddings. An evening black tie wedding means formal. Get dressed up. Long dresses can be worn to formal evening weddings. Cocktail dresses are considered more modern formal attire today. Take into consideration the time of year the wedding is taking place. In the spring or summertime pastel and florals are yummy. Black and darker colors are most popular at evening weddings in the fall and winter.
*An exception would be if a bride indicates to guests that they can wear white.
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.
