Dresses to wear to a wedding

Whether you're taking a friend's or loved one's special day by storm, or attending on behalf of the happy couple you might want to take some deep breaths and consider the following do's and don'ts.With the spring season on the horizon, now is the time to think about the upcoming wedding season. And if you're attending a spring wedding, you will need a dress that aligns with the bride’s set dress code. Chilly temperatures are slowly fading away removing the need to coordinate a coat or fur to match your dress, and making shopping for a wedding that much easier.


Weddings will become more casual with less of a black-tie feel. “I believe we will see more guests wearing midi and mini-length dresses. Even though the length may be more casual than a long formal gown, I think people are going to start having more fun with their wedding guest fashion,” says Lanie List, founder and CEO of Lovely Bride.

This BHLDN dress offers a deep V-neck shape for a dramatic effect. The skirt gathers at the waist which makes it flattering on multiple figures. As long as the bridal party doesn’t have this color, it’s an excellent option for a spring wedding. Yellow, pink, and green dresses are all great options to wear. Dresses with patterns and floral design also work really well for the spring season—just be sure you aren't wearing the same color as the bride's bridal party, and of course, stay away from white!(Source:www.brides.com)


With cooler temperatures, picturesque views and low travel rates, fall is a great season for couples to say "I do." So, if you'll be attending autumn nuptials, you'll want to start shopping for fall wedding guest dresses as soon as possible. Since the weather can be unpredictable, determining what to wear as a guest to a fall wedding isn't always easy. Fall wedding guest dresses are typically characterized by rich jewel tones, long sleeves, heavier fabrics and prints that echo the changing of seasons. However, this doesn't mean you're restricted to predictable choices that make you run the risk of sharing the same outfit with another guest or being uncomfortable (think: overheating in a long sleeve velvet gown at an outdoor wedding).

But before you choose your fall wedding attire, look at the invitation to get an idea of the dress code. This is the most important factor to take into consideration when choosing your look. You'll dress differently for an outdoor wedding in a barn than you would at an urban hotel, so read up on the couple's requested attire to plan your wedding outfit accordingly. If you're wondering exactly what to wear to a fall wedding, let the experts help you decide. "Once the fall season hits, we say goodbye to summer brights and start the transition into warm but cheerful color tones," says Blaire Walsh, Style Director of Rent the Runway. "This season gives guests the chance to play with assorted necklines, unique sleeve cuts and heavier fabrics." (Source: www.theknot.com)
