Wedding Guests: What Not to Wear

Although you may not have to wear very expensive clothes as a wedding guest, there’s a very high probability that you do want to wear something that’s tasteful and makes a great impression. What are the items you should totally not wear to a wedding, though? We have gathered some etiquette tips to help you decide on the best attire – so read on and find out more.


·        White is off-limits. There are cases when the bride and groom specifically request everyone to wear white, or cases when the white dress is not a necessary tradition. However, unless you are 100% certain of either of these cases, you will be much better off avoiding white – or any other light pastel color that may come off as white in the pictures.

·        Jeans are off-limits too. Yes, some wedding invitations say “casual” – but that does not in any way mean you can wear your trashy jeans and a T-shirt. Wear something that’s at the bridge between elegant and comfortable – such as slacks and button-down shirts, casual cocktail dresses, or anything similar, really.

·        Flashy is off-limits as well. In general, you should allow your common sense to guide you through the entire process of choosing the right attire. If something is too flashy, too colorful, too shiny, too sparkly, or too provocative, it is more than likely that it is completely unsuitable for a wedding (even for the most casual one). Keep it low-key, elegant, simple, and sweet – you’ll win everyone’s admiration this way.
