What to Wear to a Wedding?
When it comes to deciding what to wear to a wedding, things become easier if the invitation specifies a dress code. However, some dress codes Australia can still be ambiguous. In such cases, it is best to seek advice from the bride or other wedding guests. To help you kick off your outfit search, here are some guidance on the most common dress codes:
For a black-tie event, attire can range from a simple black dress to a formal ball gown. The norm is to dress up according to the occasion.
White-tie events call for a long, formal evening dress, and hair should be tied back or styled in a chignon.
Cocktail dress code indicates knee-length dresses or thereabouts, with heels typically worn.
Smart casual dress code generally means a blazer-type jacket, a long skirt or smart trousers, a shirt or blouse, and flat shoes. Leggings, jeans, or trainers are definitely not acceptable.
Avoid White Wedding Guest Dresses
A common convention when attending a wedding is to avoid wearing white, unless you happen to be the bride. White is typically reserved for the bride, who is the center of attention on her special day. If you wear white to a wedding, you may give the impression that you are trying to steal the spotlight from the bride, which is not the image you want to portray. You certainly do not want to be remembered as the person who wore an inappropriate white dress to a wedding you attended.
Dress for the season
Attending a wedding means there will likely be many photos taken, so it's important to feel your best. Uncomfortable experiences like shivering in the winter or feeling sticky in the summer can be avoided by dressing appropriately for the season. Winter weddings, in particular, involve a lot of standing around, so wearing a skimpy dress will leave you feeling cold and unable to enjoy the day. Instead, opt for a well-fitting blazer, which can provide extra warmth without overwhelming your outfit. For Australian summer weddings, a short-sleeved dress in a lightweight or floaty dress fabric is recommended. Avoid anything too tight, as it can feel restrictive. The most breathable fabrics include cotton, linen, and silk blends, but be aware that they can be prone to creasing, which can be frustrating.
Choose a Dress That Looks Flattering on You
You're a unique and beautiful woman, and your dress should reflect that! Just because a dress comes in your size doesn't necessarily mean it's the right one for you. You want to find something that flatters your body type and makes you feel confident and gorgeous. With so many different shapes and sizes of women out there, it's important to choose a dress that accentuates your best features and downplays anything you might not be as comfortable with.
If you've got long, lovely legs, don't hide them behind a long, drab dress! Go for something that shows them off and makes you feel amazing. If you've got an hourglass figure, a dress that hugs your curves and flows out to a knee-length skirt or longer will accentuate your beautiful shape. The most important thing is to try on a few different styles and see what you like best. Trust us, you'll know it when you find it. So go out there and find that perfect dress that makes you feel like the radiant goddess you are!
