What to wear as a wedding guest

Wedding season is upon us and so is the panic about what to wear as a guest! The time of day and the location affect your choice. Footwear will be dictated by the flooring – is it sand/grass, is it on an uneven surface? Will you be seated or standing for the duration of the event?

There are some things to note as a guest at a wedding.

  1. Do not wear white / ivory / cream, please.
  2. Cover up. Revealing chest areas and bums should be kept out of sight, and it’s not necessary for every nook and cranny of your body to be clung on to by fabric – have some respect.
  3. Don’t try to upstage the bride – you won’t.
  4. Hopefully you know the couple getting married well enough to steer clear of the colour the bridesmaids are wearing.

Ladies have so many choices – a floor length dress can be suitable for a day or evening wedding and can be worn with heeled or low / flat shoes that you can dance all night in! Floral or patterned frocks are perfect for an early ceremony and with the appropriate cut, can be worn to the church service too.

Do take a wrap or a suitable jacket that you add over your outfit for when the sun goes down; pick out a colour in your ensemble or go for something that coordinates – or clashes – depending on your look.

Men should wear a shirt that they are happy to show off if it’s too hot for a jacket. Better to take the jacket off than have sweat patches, trust me. They can choose to go for a light-coloured linen suit, or even linen trousers with a coordinating blazer with a white shirt and a blazer that picks up the colours thereof. Do go to town with accessories though chaps; add a pocket square for some flair!
