Dressing for the Wedding
If you’re planning on attending a wedding this summer (or maybe more than one), it’s important that you have the perfect outfit. Dressing too casually for a wedding can set a bad example, whereas being overdressed may leave you feeling uncomfortable and self-conscious. You may think that dressing for a wedding is easy, and that all you have to do is put on some nice clothes, but that’s where you’re wrong. There are a variety of different types of attire for a wedding, and the fact of the matter is that usually the answer to your attire woes is written right in your invitation.
Black Tie: For weddings that are described as being “black tie,” women should wear either a trendy cocktail dress or a long evening gown. Men should wear a tuxedo complete with a black tie, cumberbund, and leather shoes.
White Tie: White tie weddings are a little more upscale than black tie weddings. For a white tie wedding, women should wear a full-length gown and pull out all the stops with their makeup and jewelry. Men, on the other hand, should wear a tuxedo with tails, a bowtie, and a white pique vest.
Formal: This type of wedding is less formal than the first two. Men can get away with a nice suit and tie, while women should wear an evening dress.
Cocktail Attire: An invite that says “cocktail attire” means that the dress code for the wedding is still slightly formal, but as the name suggests, women can wear a cocktail dress and men can enjoy themselves in a nice suit and tie.
Beach Formal: While the beach sounds pretty casual, it’s important to remember that you are still attending a wedding and should look your best. Women should wear a formal sundress and men should wear their best summer suit.
Dressy Casual: Don’t be confused by the word “casual.” For this type of wedding, you can get away with more casual attire, but that doesn’t mean you can break out the shorts and flip-flops. For this type of wedding, men should still wear a suit and tie, while women can get away with a dressy skirt and top.
