How to Dress for a Wedding - 5 Tips

Chances are if you're getting married, your friends are too. It can be tricky to decide what to wear someone else's wedding. Here are our top five no fail tips to looking fabulous as a guest of the bride or groom.

1. Stay away from taboo colors...white, ivory, and whatever color the bridesmaids are wearing.

2. Overdress rather than under dress. If you're unsure of the dress code, err on the side of being too dressy. It's better to show up in a cocktail dress to a BBQ than jeans at a black tie reception.

3. Spend a little extra time on your hair and makeup. The bride will be looking at these photos for years and you'll undoubtedly end up in some, so you'll want to look your best.

4. Keep your shoes on. This should go without saying, but never take off your shoes at a formal event. If you aren't comfortable in heels all night pick a different pair of shoes, wear Foot Petals, or keep a pair of Spare Soles, roll up shoes, in your purse.

5.Accessorize!  Wear an outfit you know you love, something fun and comfortable, bring a wrap in case it gets chilly, and don't forget to accessorize!
