It can be difficult to navigate what to wear to a wedding. A dress code that means one thing in the business world means something different when it comes to weddings. For instance casual can mean one thing at a elegant wedding venue and can mean another at a rustic-chic backyard wedding.
Black tie at a High-End Venue
For men a tux is the best solution accompanied with a black tie or bowtie. For women, lean toward a floor-length gown and rich colors like red, gold, and blue. If you don’t feel comfortable with bold colors a black dress is also appropriate.
A Semi-Formal Cocktail Party
The rules here are a little more straight forward. While breaking out that LBD and some heels is totally appropriate for this type of dress code. Know that it’s a great time to wear your statement dress or accessories that are a little more eye-catching. For men a dark to mid-gray suit is appropriate with a playful tie or bowtie and black dress shoes.
A Care-free Boho Wedding
Earth-tones and light colors are popular for this style of wedding. Also choosing a flowy or breathable fabric is great choice. For men khaki slacks and a light blue shirt works great and for women a nude or pink ankle length dress are great places to start. Using materials such as leather, beads, and and lace are also appropriate.
A Casual Rustic-Chic Wedding
It would not be out of place for men to wear a button down shirt tucked in with denim and boots in this sort of setting. Women can also wear boots with a ankle or knee-high dress in a blue color or wear a pop color with a denim jacket. Wearing a piece of rose gold or turquoise jewelry as a subtle statement piece can pull the look together.
