Wedding season is right around the corner! I’m sure by now you are all receiving wedding invites and have this question hanging over your head: “What does one wear to a spring wedding?”
Well, a dear reader of the blog reached out to me recently to help her find a dress for a wedding. Here’s what she said:
“I am going to a wedding and I am searching for a dress. I want it be classy, long, sexy and sophisticated …”
Well, I hear you my friend! Even though, we don’t want to upstage the bride, we still want to look good! 😉 Spring is the time to experiment with color. Leave out all the dark colors of winter and be in tune with the rebirth of Nature and all the flowers blooming.
I also decided to tackle a subject that people often don’t consider when choosing a dress for a wedding: daytime, cocktail, black tie??? What are the different types of wedding attire??? The important thing is to know at what time the wedding will be held! Because one thing I know for sure, is that no one wants to arrive to a daytime wedding wearing sequins and all.
So, let’s decipher the codes and get some outfit ideas :
Daytime Spring weddings call for fresh pastel colors like lavender, peach or cream. Florals are a big trend this spring so don’t hesitate to pull of the trend with this gorgeous dress from ASOS. A sleek necklace and accessories taking cue from the dress will add sophistication to your look.
Cocktail attire is where lines are blurred. 😉 It’s a little before 6 o’clock but the festivities will continue into the night. So, I would avoid fabric like cotton and go with fabric that have a luxe feel to it.
This beautiful backless dress from ASOS has the perfect amount of drama for a cocktail wedding. The accessories perfectly compliment the color of the dress, while adding other pops of color.
Black tie equals formal, meaning men are in tuxes and women in floor-length gowns. This dress from Virgos Lounge is elegant and the embellishments add pizzazz to the dress!
