What Not To Wear At a Wedding

In today's present day age, you can escape with wearing basically anything, anywhere. Workplaces are more casual with what their representatives can wear, pants are considered satisfactory for extravagant eateries and the thought of a clothing regulation appears the kind of thing saved for the royals or dashing. Be that as it may, if there's one spot you should adhere to the time honored rules of fashion, it's at a wedding. The principles may be unwritten, however bringing about the anger of a furious bride on her huge day is not something you ought to tackle lightly.

However women are slightly better than men in this area. Men are usually oblivious on what to wear and they go on last minute shopping sprees with their wives or girlfriends or visit online clothing boutiques and have fashion disasters when they decide to take things up a notch every once in awhile. Here are a few tips to help you get through the wedding season without being criticized.

Never under dress

Some people like to go easy and casually and refrain from suiting up all the way because they don’t feel like it or maybe it’s just a hassle for them. Do not go wearing just a formal shirt and a tie. Surely you could do much worse but you can do much better to. You’re not going to your uncle’s house for a Christmas dinner; you’re going to a wedding.  Either look fabulous or don’t go at all.


This is a huge no.  Just save yourself the embarrassment and don’t show up. Weddings are a festive formal occasion by wearing denim you give of the hint that you couldn’t care less about their wedding and your just there for the food.  It sorts of insults the hosts to that their big day clearly doesn’t mean anything to you.

Letterman jackets

Surely letterman jackets would be an ideal thing to wear if you were going to a football game or a movie. If you wear a letterman jacket or something with position patches on it then you’re just asking to be punched my friend.  Leave your Eminem trend back home and save it for a day to the beach or road trip with your college buddies.

Now we can move on to women. Sadly they aren’t as simple as men and they have to take a lot more things into consideration than just jeans and jackets. Let’s admit it guys can sometimes slip by or get camouflaged in the hundreds of people there however woman aren’t as fortunate. Every woman is inspected closely by every other individual present there and people look for mistakes in them. Hence those poor souls have no margin for error. You can’t blame them for taking hours to get ready.

Don’t wear the same color as the bride

No bride needs to share the spotlight on her huge day so don't wear a dress that is of the same color as hers. Yes, it's difficult to anticipate what color her dress may be, however the general guideline is to not wear white. There are such a variety of colors do you truly need to wear white on that day?

Uncomfortable shoes

You might need to persevere through a couple of hours on your feet at a wedding and there will, obviously, be dancing. In the event that you've purchased new shoes ensure you test drive them at home before wearing them out. Try not to wear anything too high and recall packing some blister plasters in the event of some unforeseen issue.

Never wear red

There’s nothing more regrettable than wearing a splendid red dress. Red draws the eye and going to a wedding is about fading into the background. If you wear red the odds are you will emerge like a sore thumb in each gathering photograph and if there's one thing we've learnt, it's not to draw center from the bride.


Black generally looks good on everybody but wearing it here won’t be an ideal situation. Black is usually associated with death and mourning so wearing it to a wedding isn’t a bright idea. You don’t want hundreds of eyes staring at you like vultures.
