Top 3 Fashion Choices a Wedding Guest Should Avoid

Number One: No White.

Unless you a part of the wedding party and the Bride specifically puts you in white, as a guest, you should under no circumstances wear the color white because it is explicitly and traditionally reserved for the bride.  Even if the bride is wearing an nontraditional colored wedding dress, it would still be more respectful of you to not wear white. There are the exceptions of your dress being patterned where white is not the main color, but you just want to be careful. It would put a damper on the special day if your wardrobe choice caused the bride -who is already stressed out- to send you angry eye daggers for matching her on her big day.  This fashion don’t may seem obvious, but it is surprisingly ignored or forgotten quite often. So, be the best guest you can be, and don’t rain on your bride’s white and lace parade.

This white lace dress by Asos is gorgeous, but is a big no-no for the wedding guest!

Number Two: Don’t dress for the club. 

Every guest wants to look their best, and for some, their best means looking smoking hot. We just suggest that you tone it down for the wedding. Avoid mini skirts, extremely low cut tops, cut-out dresses, and anything overtly flashy or head-to-toe sequinned. Even if the wedding reception is designed to have dancing and more of a party atmosphere, any wedding event asks for a more modest fashion choice in order to not ‘steal the show’. This does not, of course, mean that you can’t have a little spunk in your dress, just that your best party dress may be one step out of place at a wedding event. 

Cutout Fitted Dress

This sexy cutout dress from ArdenB may be perfect for the exciting night out on the town, but it’s spice may be a little too much for a wedding!

Number Three: Don’t wear anything you are uncomfortable in.

Weddings involve a lot of time, even for the guest. You may be walking from the ceremony site to the reception site farther down, the parking may not be as close as you thought, or you may end up dancing -or the at the very least standing- most of the night. Whatever it is, you don’t want to be caught in uncomfortable heels that you have never worn before. This “don’t” could very easily be translated to “Don’t wear new heels”. It may be tempting to splurge on a new pair of heels that seem to start calling your name as soon as that invitation gets put up on the fridge, so if you do buy new pumps, break them in and don’t save them for the wedding. Also, remember that whatever you wear, you are stuck in it. So avoid materials that itch and don’t try and squeeze into anything that is too tight. It might look killer in the mirror, but if you are going to be scratching at yourself or fidgeting in it, then it might turn into a flop rather looking hot.

How Guests Can Dress Their Best for a Fall Wedding

How a Guest Can Dress Their Best

As a guest, getting dressed up for an event like a wedding can be a little tricky. There are questions of how formal or casual the wedding will be; if it will be indoors or outdoors; if there is a specific theme that the bride wants people to adhere to; what colors should be avoided in order to not blend in with the wedding party; and even what the fashion trends are for the season. So, the question in this blog article is, what should guests wear to a fall wedding?

Warm Tones

Dressing warm for a fall wedding does not necessarily mean dressing to withstand cold weather. If the wedding is indoors, guests have a lot more wiggle room to show off their wedding ready bodies in elegant warm toned dresses, ties, and suites. A light strapped dress or even an elegant strapless gown can work in any fall wedding. The key for a strapless or thinly strapped dressed is keeping the color tone warm: Think maroon, custard, forest green, navy, rose, orange, brown, and black. Other elements that are trending this fall are mod and tea shaped dresses, as well as lace and crochet patterns.

Longer Lengths

Knee length or floor length dresses are the ideal for a fall wedding. Not only do they work better for the colder weather, but the knee length ensures a classy look , and the floor length dress allows you to create a mixed look of formal and casual. With such a simple floor length dress like the one below, we would suggest a sparkling hair piece like a crystal comb or some large dazzling earrings.

Sassy and Classy

If you want to wear something a little more vibrant, just stay away from the neon and highlighter colors that have been so popular the last few summers. Instead, go for a lively color that embodies the same intensity of the sun hitting fall leaves. You will want to pay attention to how formal the wedding style is when deciding between a mini skirt or a strapless knee length, but regardless you can still get that spunk from that perfect pop of color. Or, if you want to give yourself a little more edge, go for a dress with a gorgeous pattern on it! Patterns work great in the fall and will gladly say “I like to dance more than that monotone dress”. A nice touch with these styles below could be a chic feathered head piece

Unique Wedding Gift Ideas

Being invited to join a bride and groom on their wedding day is a special privilege. It is important to show your support for the new couple on their special day, not only by attending, but also by giving a gift.  You may decide to give a gift designed for both the bride and groom, or to the bride and groom individually, depending on your relationship with each.  So what gifts can you give? Here are a few ideas:

For the Bride: Something Sweet and Sentimental

A Bride's Tradition (From Friend or Family to the Bride) Wedding Handkerchief

One traditional gift for the bride is the wedding handkerchief. This is a gift that is appropriate from a family member or a friend who is extremely close to the family and more particularly the bride. This can be a particularly sweet gift from the father of the bride. The handkerchief in the image above comes with a sweet poem card, a lucky penny, and a blue ribbon; All of which are meant to help tell the bride just how happy you are for her and to wish the happy couple the best. Other handkerchiefs can be embroidered with sweet sentiments or customized with the names of the bride and groom, the date of the wedding, or perhaps their favorite scripture. 

Help the Couple Make their House(or apartment) a Home

Home State Throw Pillow

A sweet, and less intimate gift, is customized home decor. Be it a painting, print, or embroidered pillow, a bride always appreciates something nice for her home that represents her love with her groom. A popular trend is home-state decor. These come in a variety of shapes, but are designed to have the home state of the bride and the groom brought together or the state they are beginning their home in printed on the canvas, blanket, or pillow. 

Linen Hemstitch Napkins

Every newlywed appreciates kitchenware items to build their home, but if you are going the kitchenware route, take it one step farther and make it unique for your blushing bride. Monogramming everything you own may be a trend of the past, but monogramming wedding gifts to symbolize the union of two families, is a trend happening right now. If you know the bride and groom have a taste for whine, then why not give the gift of a personalized whine decanter or whine glasses? Or if your Bride is often a hostess or you know she has a particularly sweet sweet-tooth then a personalized dessert bowl would be a perfect gift.
