There is no one type of wedding. This is a true statement because each of the weddings follows different themes and style. So the guests must arrive to match the theme of the wedding. Some weddings have a casual approach but some others may be completely traditional. We sure do not want to be the odd one out in a wedding. So here are some of the rules you can follow to be the best-dressed person in the room. True elegance is when we dress according to the occasion. Read below to know the Dressing tips and you can follow
1. Know about the theme
When you get a wedding invitation you can get some information from it. The bride and groom would leave some clues on the theme of the wedding. Some wedding invitations even contain the theme you need to adhere to. So stick to it. If they are excepting you to choose the colours of dress than simply wear dress colours they expect. Then you are appropriately decked for the occasion.
The hosts will have requested you to wear certain types of outfits such as party wear or traditional clothes. So choose from a range of clothing available in that type of outfits.
2. Respect the plans of your host
If your guests want you to arrive in a particular style of dress than kindly respect it. They would have worked hard to make everything look perfect and if a person arrives at their wedding in a different kind of outfit than it will annoy them. If it is also a reception come in the expected style of outfit your host will like. This will make everyone happy and will not ruin the mood of the people present.
3. Traditional wear is appropriate for wedding functions
Many people tend to overlook the traditional wear at weddings because they think being casual is cool. However, that is not the case. Traditional wears are always the best way to grace the wedding functions. It will make the wearer look elegant. But it does not mean that the guest should steal the thunder of the bride or groom by wearing over-the top-dresses. Be simple yet stylish through the traditional wears.
4. Be modest when the occasion expects it
If the wedding happens at a church or temple than choose modest clothing. It is not the place to experiment in fashion or style. So opt for a wedding dress that suits your figure and makes you look elegant. Women can wear a shawl as a covering and men can wear shirts that are tailored well and not too tight.
5. Do not wear the colours of the bride
There are colours that a bride chooses for a wedding. In a Christian wedding, bride opts for the white traditional gown. In a Hindu wedding, a bride opts for bright colours like red. So do not opt for dresses that have this colour. It is the Bride’s day so respect her feelings. There are many other colours you can try and look well so go for it.
6. Footwear also counts
Many people dress well but they forget to put on good footwear to match the dress. They may think that no one will look at their legs so they even wear ordinary chappals for the wedding. It does not mean that you have to spend lots of money on footwear. You can choose the ones that do not have a brand name attached to it but still appear elegant and suitable for the occasion.
These are the points you can keep in mind before going to a wedding. The occasion will make you happy and you can also make others happy with your dress choices.
