Wedding Attire Etiquette...

What I'm wearing...dress: Asos, heels: Steven by Steve Madden (only available in this color), acrylic clutch: Forever 21 (similar)

      This is my look that I wore to our friend's wedding over the weekend! It was a beautiful ceremony overlooking the ocean here in CT. Over the years, I've been to a lot of weddings and I think the concept of proper wedding attire etiquette is often overlooked. 
      I think one of the most widely known fashion rules that still holds true today is, DON'T wear white to a wedding! The bride should be the only one wearing white on her wedding day, but surprisingly there are a vast number of people who have never heard of this rule! I take this rule a bit further and I exclude beige, nude, off white, or even a light silver. The idea here is that you don't want to upstage the bride! Think darker jewel tones for winter weddings and lighter pastels and florals for spring and summer weddings. When in doubt, you can never go wrong with the little black dress!
      Beyond color choice, I also try to stay away from anything too flashy. Save the dress with the all over sequins or rhinestones for the next time you go out with your girlfriends on the town! Also, if you have a rocking body, that's awesome, but try to stay away from anything too revealing. Low cut necklines and high cut hemlines are never a good idea to wear to a wedding! 
      Don't get me wrong here ladies, I'm not saying you have to choose a dress that's boring or frumpy. I want you to feel good about yourself and I certainly don't want you to just blend in. I think that if you keep the colors, patterns and lines both classic and simple, you can't go wrong!
