Once you click RSVP, it’s time to start planning your wedding outfit. Every wedding is different and each will have its own dress code, and sometimes deciding on an outfit can be stressful! But don’t panic, to make your life a little easier I’ve laid out some outfit ideas for every type of wedding.
Night Weddings A wedding after dark is usually a fancy affair. Cocktail dresses and long evening gowns are both safe, reliable choices. Look for dresses that have some interesting details and embellishments, from beading to the fabric. Just make sure the color palette isn’t the same as the bridal party!
Day Weddings A wedding under the sun lets you get away with more color and more casual. Elegant summer, flowy dresses, classy jumpsuits, pumps, dressy flats and cute sandals are all at your disposal for a day wedding.
Casual Casual weddings are open to interpretation, but you can always rely on the season and the venue to guide your choices. Like day weddings, you can easily get away with summer dresses, two-piece looks, cute flats and wedges.
Black Tie Like night weddings, formal gowns and dressy cocktail dresses are perfect for a black-tie wedding, and heels are almost always a must. For black-tie, it’s important to strike a balance between sexy and modest and respectful.
Cocktail and Semi-Formal Not quite as fancy as black-tie or evening, but definitely not casual. A classic cocktail dress, your trusty LBD, a dressy jumpsuit or a chic pantsuit could all do the most for you.
