Although the ‘rules’ about what you should and shouldn’t wear to a wedding have relaxed a bit in the past years, there are still a few things that are an absolute wedding no-no.
The idea is to be respectful of the people getting married and to their family and friends. Let’s look at a few things to avoid for a wedding:
Never wear white
This is one rule that hasn’t changed. Never, ever wear white to a wedding. Choose neutrals or blush instead.
No matter how casual the wedding, avoid sweats completely. You’ll just look tacky. Try comfortable cotton.
Jeans are also far too casual. Try blue linen if you want to echo the look.
No shorts, guys
No matter how hot it is, guys should stick with pants. Try a lightweight fabric.
Cover your shoulders
Some churches require women to cover their shoulders. Take a shawl like this one.
No cargo pants
If you’re going to wear pants, avoid cargo pockets. Try a tailored pants suit instead.
Don’t ignore the dress code
If it’s a beach wedding, don’t go in a ballgown, k? Stick to the dress code on the invitation.
No rips and holes
Even if they’re intentional … just no! This is far edgier.
