The most frequently asked question that I have been receiving lately from you guys was about the wedding dress code. What dresses are OK as for a wedding guest and where to find them, as well as what dresses should be left at home for another occasion. Let me help you with that!
But first things first. Why should we follow the wedding dress code? It is a sign of respect for the couple (especially the bride) and your attire should always be respectful and appropriate. Avoid wearing anything too short or too revealing, as well as white or black dress. At least imagine the photos of you and a bride together – how would you look next to the bride in a white dress or how would you make her look? In other words it is all about showing the respect. Now let’s talk about what dresses to choose!
Daytime weddings are more casual so lighter fabrics for a less-formal attire would be more appropriate. For women, a nice daytime dress, skirt and top, or jumpsuit are good choices. For men, a well-tailored suit in a mid-to-dark neutral color like gray, blue or earthy color is appropriate.

If it is an evening wedding then formal styles, longer dresses and gowns would be more appropriate. Men should wear darker suits in navy, black or grey.

If there isn’t a very formal evening dress code where a little party won’t harm anybody, then you can go for a party / cocktail dress.

But despite my short wedding dress manual, make sure to check the invitation – usually there should be a dress code which to follow. In case you need another great advice, save this:
