Do go for print
Floral prints are very fashionable
Do try tailored alternatives
Elegantly tailored alternatives are always fashionable
Do invest in a good bag
An elegant handbag will dress up any outfit
An everyday handbag can look incongruous with a wedding-appropriate outfit so invest in a simple, neutral clutch, just like Olivia Palermo, that will see you through a summer of weddings and beyond.
Do wear a hat
Do wear a hat, a wedding is a great moment to dress up
Controversial perhaps, but there’s little opportunity to wear a formal hat in everyday life (unless you’re the Duchess of Cambridge), so make the most of it.
Do wear flats if you need to
Elegant flats mean you won’t sink into the lawn and will be able to dance the night away
Weddings involve lots of walking, standing and dancing so if you’re not comfortable in heels make like Diane Kruger at the Chanel couture show and opt for some statement flats instead.
Don’t think it’s OK to wear jeans
Jeans are not acceptable. Weddings are a special occasion so make an effort and dress up
Yeah, yeah, Kristen Stewart’s, like, so laid back and totally hates getting dressed up, but come on, jeans at a wedding reception? Really?
Don’t wear black
Black is not really for weddings, choose a more cheerful colour
Unless specified otherwise on the invitation, black is never a good idea for a wedding, for obvious funeral-related reasons. Repeat offender Victoria Beckham illustrates another good point in this picture from Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s ill-fated 2006 wedding – don’t over pose in the wedding photos.
Don’t wear anything too bridal-esque
Do not overshadow the bride. Its her day.
VB rocked up to Davinia Taylor’s 2003 nuptials in a lacy Dolce & Gabbana dress leaving people wondering which lady was the bride.
Do check what other attendees are wearing
Check what others are going to wear so as not to appear as identical twins
If you know other people attending the wedding check what they are wearing beforehand. Otherwise you might end up looking like this trio – lovely, but a little too matchy-matchy.
