No matter if it is a close friend or a co-worker, a wedding is a huge deal for those involved so you must dress to impress for the occasion. But, we all walk a fine line when it comes to deciding what to wear. We want to look and feel striking and beautiful, but still stay somewhat appropriate. You want to be remembered for all of the right reasons, especially if it is not your day.
Whether you are attending a chic city wedding or a religious ceremony, you must take your outfit seriously. We can all begin to panic when we have an event coming up, but it just means that we must be fully prepared for every eventuality. From pretty pastels to sophisticated skirts, there are just so many different outfit choices available. So, here is a guide to what to wear when attending a wedding as a guest.
If you want to go for something a little more daring and out-there, but are struggling to find the perfect fit of trousers or a flattering cut of a jumpsuit, it may be more comfortable and more stylish to go for the classic - a dress.
You cannot go wrong with a well-fitting and beautiful colored dress when you are a wedding guest. Summer is the perfect time to try out new pastel colors, such as lilac, lemons and blues and, whilst they are not necessarily a groundbreaking fashion trend; they work for all skin tones, body shapes, and confidence levels.
If you usually cover up with tights or wear trousers, then why not wear something a little different and invest in our LUDOVICA stockings? Silky smooth and perfect for warmer weather, they are designed to match skin tones and come in several different colors. Alternatively, if you’re feeling daring, why not opt for a split-leg dress? Just the right amount of conservative mixed with sexy. There’s also the perfect opportunity to show off your thigh-high stockings, of course.
When you attend a wedding, there are so many things to admire and enjoy, from the flowers and cake to the music and, of course, the bride and groom. But, one thing that you shouldn’t have to think about is your feet, although this is easier said than done. The basic rule when it comes to wedding guest shoes is that you should show the perfect balance of elegance and glamour, which is hard to do when you’re wincing in pain with every step you take! However, it is easy to make a bold and lasting statement when you are wearing a pair of fabulous shoes, and you’re likely to be found on the dancefloor all evening when you feel amazing in a pair of shoes. If you know that your feet begin to hurt or feel uncomfortable after a few hours of dancing and having fun, then prepare ahead and slip a pair of ballerina flats in your bag to get changed in for the evening.
Deciding on your makeup choices as a wedding guest can feel like a huge challenge. You want to look good for the photographs, but you also don’t want to go for anything which is a little too bold. If you are struggling to pick the perfect makeup style, then try not to worry. There are some great and simple ideas out there.
The right foundation color is a must, as you don’t want to appear mismatched when it comes to the photographs. Try and pick a foundation which is lightweight and offers hydration throughout the day. With a lightweight formula, you can get a smoother and more finished look, without having to blend too much. Remember to use a little primer underneath - this will help to maintain a soft finish and stop any unwanted shiny patches forming.
If you want to add something a little more out there for the evening event, say to match a theme or color scheme, then choose something which is easy to pull off. Cosmetic glitter is the perfect thing to add a little shine to eyelids or highlight cheekbones, whereas a sweep of blusher will instantly give you a glow. You could also choose a glitter eyeliner or a highlighter with a little more shimmer than what you would wear in the day.
