With weddings now taking place at any time of the year, more and more people are turning to online forums in a bid to ensure they wear the most appropriate outfits for these wonderful days.
However, in the quest to find out what most people consider appropriate attire for the time of the year the wedding is being held at, some people fail to spend as much time addressing other such wedding style faux pas.
Here are three of the most common style mistakes that people seem to make repeatedly on such momentous occasions as this:
Wearing All White or All Black
I’m sure the reasons for not wearing an ensemble of all white are self -explanatory but for those guests still insistent on selecting this color, maybe it’s worth being reminded that this is the bride’s big day – therefore only she should be wearing white!
Though there are many fabulous black dresses to choose from, this color too is also frowned upon at a wedding. Traditionally the tone reserved for funerals, it does suggest a more somber mood for what should be a happy occasion!
(Subsequently, try to refrain from eye-watering neon colors at weddings as well!)
Wearing Inappropriate Clothing
This is a more awkward one to pinpoint, but there are still those who feel that a wedding is a time to wear the shortest of skirts or dresses. Then there’s the addition of flashing underwear as they do so or considerable over the top cleavage-enhancing dresses, which end up faltering in their construction towards the end of the night!
Once again, though no one expects you to dress like a nun, a wedding is not an appropriate place for such type of clothing choices. Aim for sophistication here, rather than nightclub attire, and wear something you will feel comfortable in during what can often be a long day.
Wearing Casual Attire
A wedding is a formal occasion and one which many of us won’t attend that often during the year. It is, therefore, a chance to wear our best clothes, something other than what we would usually wear on a day to day basis.
This is not, therefore, the time to go casual! It not only makes you stand out like a sore thumb but suggests an amount of disrespect on your behalf towards the happy couple.
Be warned here that because of the exposure at such events, almost everyone will see what you are wearing and inevitably chose to comment on it if they consider it in poor taste.
