3 Rules For Wedding Attire


Outfit ℅ Oshawa Centre: Dress and shoes – Hudsons Bay, Bag – Le Chateau

Wedding season is officially in full swing so it’s time to get dolled up and look your very best. There are so many different traditional and non-traditional ceremonies nowadays that it can be a challenge finding the perfect wedding wear for the occasion. Today, I’ve teamed up with the Oshawa Centre to share three rules to always follow when shopping for any wedding:

  1. Read the invite and dress appropriately – Where is the wedding? A beach? Beautiful Garden? A church? This should play a huge part in how you dress. Pay attention to the invite as the venue can change your attire choice dramatically. What you would wear to a church wedding is much different that what you would probably choose to wear to a more casual wedding on the beach.
  2. Only the bride wears white – While there are a plethora of beautiful white cocktail dresses out there they aren’t the place for a wedding. The bride is the only one that wears white on her wedding day so try to go with colour or a print.
  3. Better to be overdressed – Casual clothes are great for weekends at the cottage and running your errands but not proper wedding attire. Trust me, you don’t want to be that underdressed person at a wedding! There will most likely be a photographer there capturing the special day so it’s always better to to look your absolute best rather than going to casual route. A pretty cocktail dress, silk pantsuit or chiffon maxi dress are always a good way to go.

    Great tips. Even though they are so obvious, it can get wrong easily. I almost went to a wedding in white once 😀

    These rules are spot on. I hate when I see other people wearing white at a wedding…that’s reserved for the bride. And location is definitely key on how you will need to dress. Your outfit is lovely btw 😍

    So true that it’s better to be overdressed!! I think we women have it a lot easier though when it comes to dressing for weddings because any nice dress will usually do for a lot of things (unless it’s black-tie), but men will look much more like a sore thumb wearing a suit or tux if everyone else is in khakis and button downs haha.

    I always live by the “better to be overdressed” rule, I never want to feel too casual or out of place. It’s much better to look classy, sophisticated and dressed up!

    You look beautiful, I love your shoes!

    Really great tips! Everyone I know getting married lately has been eloping or going really low key so I haven’t got to dress up for a wedding in a long time.
