A wedding in Chicago sounds awesome. As far as weather goes please check the temperatures for next weekend. Chicago weather in early June can be in the 60’s – 80’s. Where will the wedding be, inside or outside? When will the wedding be held, morning, afternoon or evening? These questions need to be answered before choosing your outfit. Weddings are occasions to dress up and celebrate. You will want to wear something nice no matter where or when it is being held. Morning and early afternoon weddings are less formal than late afternoon or evening weddings. Think a dress in a fabric like cotton, linen or silk. Separates, such as pants or a skirt with a dressy top, are also appropriate for a morning and early afternoon weddings. If the wedding is late afternoon or evening think cocktail dress, dressy separates or a simple classic sheath or LBD with a piece of statement jewelry. Add a cardigan sweater, shawl or lightweight jacket in case the weather is cool Enjoy!
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.
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”, “Cocktail Party attire,” “Tailgate Party”, “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?
