Wedding season is finally upon us! While it can be an exciting and fun time, most of us have asked this question one time or another: What am I going to wear!? There are several factors to keep in mind when shopping for weddings: the season, location and formality. Most of the time, wedding dress codes can be a bit tricky. You don’t want to steal the spotlight from the bride and at the same time, you want to stay within a budget and still look stylish. Below I’ve compiled some of my favourite fail safe dress options that will make you the best dressed guest at any of these 3 types of weddings.
THE CLASSIC BLACK OR WHITE TIE WEDDING
The oldest rule in the book when it comes to dressing for a wedding is NEVER wear white, especially to any pre-wedding festivities, and this includes the wedding as well. The only exception to this rule is if the invitation specifies an all-white dress code. For a classic black or white tie wedding, it’s always good to come a bit overdressed rather than underdressed. Pieces you want to look for are long gowns, think what celebs wear to award shows; classic and sophisticated. In general though, I personally love to have a classic black or navy dress on hand for these types of occasions. I love this one from Alice + Olivia along with this gorgeous number by Jill Jill Stuart.
Depending on whether this style of wedding is formal or semi formal, you can never go wrong with wearing a colourful number or something that is a little more on the casual side. Take this opportunity to pull out your favourite jumpsuit (also love this) and pair it with a cute clutch and blocked heels. Another great piece to wear is a light, flowy sundress! These are my favourite picks (here and here).
BEACH DESTINATION WEDDING
When considering what to wear to a destination wedding, choose easy breezy silhouettes. Think long sundresses made with light, airy fabrics in silk, chiffon or linen. These can be in a flower print or light colours. Wearing breathable, non-clingy pieces is a great choice as it will keep you cool and chic. This one is the perfect wedding attire recommendation for a destination wedding (also love this one).
