A wedding is a terrific opportunity to dress up, especially if you have those unworn pretty dresses in the closet. Of course, you should follow the dress code and base your outfit on how formal the occasion is. Another tip is to consider the timing and the season to decide what color of dress to wear. Here are some basic guidelines you can follow.
1. Informal and Semi-formal Daytime Wedding
For such events, a sundress, skirt, and dressy pants will be suitable enough. Flats are also not a requirement, strappy sandals or pretty flats will work, too.
2. Informal and Semi-Formal Evening Wedding
Your little black dress or even a maxi dress can work at such weddings, so long as you look stylish and comfortable.
3. Black Tie Optional Wedding
The optional means you can be flexible, like a long formal dress or a cocktail dress. Men do not have to wear tuxedos.
4. Black Tie Wedding
These are the dressiest events, so you need to bring out your formal, long gowns. Your dressiest cocktail dress with heels might also work.
5. White Tie Wedding
They are not as common because this dress code is more associated with royal weddings or such. Women are expected to wear floor-length gowns with a ball skirt and even gloves. It is also time to bring out the best jewels.
