The bride has been planning her outfit for over a year. What are YOU going to wear? Don’t stress. When for dressing for a wedding be festive and occasion appropriate. If you’re going as the “plus one,” get your hands on the invite. Get an idea of the dress code and event’s schedule (day into night?). Whatever you wear, do not detract attention from the bride- this is her moment. When in doubt, our golden rule is go basic on your dress and flashy on the footwear- that way you can can kick up your heels at the reception without stealing the spotlight. Remember, ‘black tie’ does not translate into red carpet, think gown if the requested attire is ‘white tie.’ And be prepared, nuptials are forever and the celebrations can be neverending. Think comfy shoes for later, a wrap, and after-party attire if apropos.
