Wedding Fashion No-No’s

It’s time to elevate your fanciness to another level as wedding season kicks into full gear. Let’s face it, being part of the bridal party is stressful but just being a member of the official guest list is just as tough. What to wear on the big day is the question at hand but it is also important to remember that you should be keeping it cute at all times. On the other hand, when it comes to wedding fashions there are a few things that you should never wear; period, point, blank. If you are unsure as to what is off limits, then allow me to give you a wedding fashion crash course.

Wearing white to a wedding is a no brainer because it is only exclusive to the bride unless, of course, it is a special request by the bride and groom themselves. Otherwise, don’t even think about it. Just stay far, far away from the color white.

If you are comfortable with being mistaken as a member of the bridal party throughout the night, I suggest consulting either the bride or someone within the bridal party prior to making a purchase. As another alternative, if you don’t feel comfortable asking the bride or bridal party ahead of time, just take a hint from the wedding invitation color scheme.

Weddings are notorious for hookups or connecting with a potential suitor. However, wearing something too revealing to catch someone’s eye is not a good look. This is not the time or place to place your assets on full display.

A few more “think twice before you buy” wedding wardrobe options worth mentioning are jeans, a tiara, and anything strikingly similar to Lady Gaga-esk. Meaning, don’t wear anything too outrageous that will garner all of the attention because this night is not about you. All eyes should be on the bride and not on your larger-than-life ensemble.

In this case, unless you are the bride-to-be there is no need to overthink your evening attire, just embrace the moment and be happy with being in the presence of true love.
