Dresses indeed have been branded as a wedding affair. However the disturbing question is what kind of dresses one ought to wear to a wedding. There are some interesting things you need to note. Firstly, you need to dress up. Two people have invited you to witness and honor their marriage vows: that’s huge. The least you can do is look glamorous and decorative in their wedding album. Secondly, wear something upbeat. A wedding is a celebration of love. Asymmetric, experimental Belgian tailoring in charcoal felt does not send the right message.
Thirdly, read the invitation closely for cheap dresses code and dress code clues. An evening reception in a city restaurant requires a totally different look from an afternoon in a country church. Fourthly, go ahead and ask the bride, or one of her close friends, if you’re unsure if they’d mind you wearing white. Some brides do, some don’t – if you’re not sure, check. Do not, however, leave this call until the morning of the wedding when the inner-circle will be, shall we say, a bit busy. Moreover, try the outfit on before you leave home if you’re going to be getting ready in a hotel. Check that the outfit works and that you have the right underwear etc. The Saturday morning I spent trying to find a nude strapless bra in Anglesey is etched on my memory, and not in a good way. Lastly, take a safety pin in your bag. There’s always someone at a wedding who needs a safety pin. Be that nice person who comes to the rescue.
It is necessary to get the details. Picking a dress to wear to a wedding will be easier if you have all the details about the day. You can ask the bride what she’d recommend, but if she doesn’t provide enough information, glean what you can from the invitation. The invitation will let you know the place, time, season and any additional information that can help you choose an appropriate dress to wear to a wedding.
