I’m just going to come right out and say it – weddings are annoying.
Sure they are wonderful for the happy couple, but for the rest of us it means spending money (gifts, travel, etc.) and nine times out of ten, you end up purchasing an outfit that you didn’t feel like buying.
Suddenly you are stressed and it’s not even your “special day.”
While it is true that all eyes will be on the big white dress, if you screw up your look – side eye will be given.
So let’s decode the various dress codes that may pop up on your invitation come wedding season.
Casual does NOT mean shorts and flip-flops. For casual wedding attire, think sundress or something flowy and floral.
While we’re here, let’s also debunk and confirm some common style rumors tied to wedding season.
First, yes you can wear black. That “rule” is hella old school, and you can most definitely wear black to a wedding. In fact, I wore black at the last wedding I attended.
Second, no you cannot wear white unless it’s Puff Daddy’s White Party: Wedding Edition. White is for the bride, pick another color.
Finally, don’t be a jerk when it comes to dressing for someone’s wedding. Show respect for the day and follow that dress code that they set out.
