Now that my own wedding is over, I should be stress-free when I hear the word, “wedding,” but as it turns out, I have eight weddings to attend this year! Yes, you read that right, eight! Go ahead, you can call me a “professional” wedding attender! When I think of the madness of this year, all I can think is, “What am I going to wear?”
As a guest of the wedding, you have a lot of things to consider when choosing your attire such as the following:
1. Your Budget – If you only want to spend $100 on a dress, you probably shouldn’t even consider going to BCBG because you will be banned to the sale rack at the Outlet, which means a limited selection. Instead, try department stores that carry a wide variety of designers at every price point or shop local.
2. The Location – Different locations requires different styles and coverage. A wedding in the middle of the woods of Kentucky in October means you better pick a dress that pairs well with a cardigan and leave the Louboutin stilettos at home!
3. The Time of Day – If you are going to a brunch wedding, you should skip the little black dress (LBD) because it isn’t appropriate. Think bright, fun colors and make it a little more conservative as grandma will be making an appearance!
4. The Season – This is important because you don’t want to show up to a summer wedding in Miami in a long sleeved lace dress! For one, you will be miserably hot and two, you will be stared at and embarrassed! When looking for a dress, think about climates and seasonality.
