Wedding Guest Attire Guidelines
While many are stepping away from the traditional rules, it is always good to know what to wear when attending a wedding. If you find yourself questioning whether you should or shouldn’t be wearing something, you might want to go with something else. You could always ask the couple as well to see what they think.
1. White Tie
White tie events require a tuxedo jacket with tails, a white pique vest, a white bowtie, and gloves for the men. Ladies, you might want to call in your stylist for some assistance.
2. Black Tie
Black tie events are often hosted in the evening. For these events, plan on formal attire. While some modern events allow you to go with a shorter dress, it is often best to go with a long, formal number. Gentlemen should go with a crisp, black bow tie and tuxedo.
Depending on the time of the event, the approach is going to vary for what to wear to these events. If the event is in the evening, a cocktail dress and a dark suit will work. During the day, you can be a little more creative in what to wear. Opt for bright fabrics and colors if you so desire. Men can go with a suit in either a tan or light gray and tie of their choosing.
The main thing to remember is that you don’t want to take away from the couple.
Keeping these wedding dress etiquette tips in mind will help you to get it right!
