A Helpful Guide on What to Wear to the Next Wedding

Wedding season is almost over, which means you finally get to go on a break from all those wedding invites, which also means you’ve probably lost ideas on what to wear to the next one. As what the girl scouts say, it’s best to be prepared especially for outfit ideas for your friend’s special day.

Wedding season is almost over, which means you finally get to go on a break from all those wedding invites, which also means you’ve probably lost ideas on what to wear to the next one. As what the girl scouts say, it’s best to be prepared especially for outfit ideas for your friend’s special day.

Whether you are a bridesmaid or groomsman, sponsor, or guest, weddings are always a chance to dress up and feel fancy. Yet we all know that dressing up takes a lot of careful thinking, time, and money.

Here are a few tips that will help you make up your mind on what to wear for the next wedding.

DO. NOT. WEAR. WHITE!

Unless of course the all-white theme permits you to, then you can. But it is wedding taboo for a guest to wear white so as not to compete with the bride, and drama is one thing we want to avoid in weddings (it is her special day after all!).

 

Don’t wear too skimpy dresses 

Here in the Philippines, weddings are mostly associated with religious affiliations. So it is also good to respect that note and not wear too skimpy or revealing outfits. We also wouldn’t want you to keep on pulling down that mini. 

 

Black is all right

That beloved LBD you wear to cocktail parties or dates can be worn to any wedding event. Pair it with the right necklace and it instantly gives a touch of class, perfect for a formal wedding.

 

Better safe than sorry

That’s just what our mama said, and so do the wedding outfit gods. It might be better to come overdressed than underdressed. Be careful not to play matchy-matchy with your bag, belt and shoes though.

 

It’s good to bring a blazer

Yes, the Philippines is a tropical country, perfect to wear dresses with light fabric. The reception, however, may have a very good air-conditioning system that turns the room into a winter wonderland. And unless you’re Queen Elsa who is unbothered by the cold, it’s good to bring a blazer that goes with your outfit. An oversized blazer over a party dress or a cardigan with a fancy brooch pinned over it instantly becomes a chic modern look and cold resistor.

 

Rock your colors

Stick to your personality; it’s a good idea to go with bold colors during weddings, but not all out. Go with dresses that adds a pop of color with some simple patterns, pair it with comfy pair of heels, and you’re good to go! Always put into mind that you do not want to take the spotlight away from the bride and groom.

 

Wear comfortable shoes

Even Vogue suggests their readers to wear a pair of platforms or wedges. Grab your favorite velvet flats for when your heel starts to give, without compromising your look.

Forget the clutch!

A small leather strap–handle bag is chic and goes with you easily. Plus, it drapes by your elbow elegantly for when drinking champagne. Clink!

 

One last tip: it’s not entirely bad to wear the same outfit twice or thrice especially when you’re on a budget. Take note to go with it differently and match it with different accessories.
