With my wedding coming up in two (!!!!) months, as well as a bridal shower this weekend for a cousin, I have been thinking a lot about appropriate attire for wedding activities. I am a part of many Facebook groups for podcasts I listen to, such as The Lady Gang and The Morning Toast and there are frequent questions about what to wear to a wedding. Here are four suggestions I have to make your #OOTD super easy!

  1. Don’t wear white!!!! I don’t care if it’s between Memorial Day & Labor Day (is that rule still a thing?) but this is the bride’s day to wear white! There are hundreds of other color options for you. Even if the outfit you have selected is white with some print in other colors, please find something else. You have 364 other days in the year to wear white. Give the bride her moment!
  2. When in doubt, ask the bride or someone in the bridal party about what to wear. There are dress codes for weddings, but some can be unclear. For example, with my upcoming garden wedding, I had no clue how to word what to wear. However, a friend asked me what I suggested she wear and I had tons of ideas.
  3. Be mindful of your shoe selection. Sure, your new six inch Steve Madden’s will look stunning in pictures, but will you still love them when you’re sinking into the grass or falling over on the dance floor? Look up the wedding venue and decide the appropriate shoe wear!
  4. If you have a lot of wedding events coming up, check out Rent The Runway. This summer I have 4 of my personal wedding events, as well as some wedding events for a family member. I don’t need to buy 4 white dresses I won’t wear again, and I don’t have a lot of formal wear in my closet for the wedding I am going to. With Rent The Runway I am able to pay a monthly fee for an unlimited amount of designer wear. It is nice to see photos of the outfit on others, as well as browse their wedding section for suggestions on what to wear.
