    Here’s What NOT To Wear In A Wedding To Avoid The Awkwardness!

    Wedding season is here, and so are your dress confusion blues!

    That’s why special occasions call for special outfits: something elegant yet comfortable. Being comfortable does not mean you wearing your denim while everyone else is looking at you in their, say, formals. You get the idea.

    There are certain styles and colors that you should avoid wearing to any wedding to avoid awkwardness.

    We have mentioned some helpful tips for the same! Take a look.

    Avoid Whites

    Hear us out. If it’s your friend’s wedding, we’d advise against going in a white dress. The bride will be wearing white, and you do not want to match the same color. Instead, try going with pastels like shades of blue, green, and yellow.

    There are many different color combinations available, so you can choose one that works for you. Again, if you’re planning on wearing bright pink, then we would steer clear of doing that.

    Avoid Sweats

    Weddings are the ultimate social occasion to dress up in your finest outfit. It’s okay to wear them during peak winter weddings, but wearing them in fall or spring won’t do any good. Worse, it may give an out-of-the-place look. We’re you don’t want that, do you? If comfort is your biggest concern, consider trying a soft, breathable fabric like cotton. All About Fabrics has a great collection.

    Also, keep in mind that you will be taking pictures all day long. So if you want to look back on the day and smile, choose something comfortable and flattering.

    Avoid Casual Pants

    If you choose to wear pants, try to be dressy anyway. Select tailored trousers in a rich tone such as warm chocolate brown or a neutral color like black or gray.

    A soft-colored blouse or shirt can add an element of classiness to the ensemble and provide a nice contrast with your trousers.

    Follow the Dress Code

    If you’re planning to attend a wedding, you have to respect the dress code. Not showing up dressed appropriately is like showing disrespect to the bride and groom.

    You may be one of the guests who received an invitation for a specific dress code. Whether it’s a black-tie wedding, white tie, or just plain casual, knowing the dress code will help you prepare.

    Check Your Neckline

    While you may enjoy a great cleave moment or two, weddings are more family-friendly. So, we’d advise keeping your J-Lo-level Versace gown for some other occasion. It’s not a bad idea to wear a deep V. But, don’t ask, “How deep?”

    Do Not Wear Flip-Flops

    There’s a lot to consider when picking wedding shoes. Comfort should be the first factor that you should keep in mind. This does not mean that you can wear rubbery slides at any wedding. If you feel uncomfortable wearing those high heels, you could go for some classy flats.

    Avoid wearing flip-flops even if you are attending a beach wedding. Instead, go for some flats that go with the theme of the wedding.

    Cover Your Shoulder if Needed

    Suppose your friend’s wedding is taking place at a church or institute which has some rules. Make sure you follow them.

    However, if you are wearing a gown without sleeves, that means your shoulders will be part of the dress. Usually, people take their shawls and cover their shoulders when inside a church or institute.

    Final Word

    Being present for one of the most memorable days of your loved ones’ life is one of the best things you can do for them. However, while you’re there, you should also dress accordingly to avoid any awkwardness.

    Take cues from the dont’s discussed above and make sure you dress rightly!
