Wedding Guest Etiquette: What to Wear!

Guests often put so much thought into what to wear at the wedding and end up over-thinking it way to much! It’s easy – dress for the time of day and the season and follow these simple Do’s and Don’ts!

Women:

Do wear a floral/printed dress for a summer daytime wedding.

Do wear a cocktail dress for an evening wedding.

Don’t wear sequins or anything too flashy.

Don’t wear white, ivory or off-white at any wedding…no exceptions to this rule. It’s rude and not polite to take away focus from the bride!

Do make sure you are dressed appropriately for the ceremony!
