Wedding Guest Style Guide

Wedding season is fast approaching and if you are anything like me, you will be left wondering what to wear. Whether you have to dress casual, formal, semi-formal, beach attire, or black tie, below is a Wedding Guest Style Guide will that will hopefully calm those nerves and inspire your next wedding outfit!

Weather: No matter the weather, the key is to be prepared. Always check the forecast before you leave, bring layers and dress accordingly!

Venue: Whether you are celebrating at a church, vineyard, barn, or even a backyard the venue can play a major role in deciding on the perfect outfit.

Required Attire: Don't go against the dress code, not only will you stand out like a sore thumb, but it can be seen as disrespectful. You friends getting married have spent a lot of time planning their dream wedding and you should respect their choices!

Additional Tips:

  • Be respectful! Don't wear white or any shade of off-white unless requested to do so. The bride is more than likely going to be wearing white, it's her day to shine!
  • A casual dress code doesn't mean sweats.  It's better to be overdressed than underdressed.
  • If you are worried about comfort, try dressing in loose, soft and light-weight fabrics.
  • Stay away from jeans, rips and holes, even if they are part of the design or look you are going for. Instead, try incorporating cute cut-outs, low back, or funky designs.
  • If planning to wear heels, make sure you wont be walking on soft grass, dirt, etc.
  • Buying a "new look" for every wedding can be expensive. I recommend using rental sites such as Black Tux. They give you the option of renting a suit or tuxedo at an affordable price. With so many styles and colour options, you'll always look stylish and unique!
