Wedding Wednesday: What to wear to a formal wedding

August 8, 2012

Every Wednesday our fab intern Jessica will be popping in to share details, inspiration and excitement as her big day approaches. You can read her previous posts here and here. This week she’s talking about formal wedding attire. So without further adieu, let’s talk fashion, shall we?…


Hello again on this gorgeous Wedding Wednesday! Today I am posting some lovely dresses for wedding guest attire…in particular, formal wedding attire. There is so much information around the web about attire and etiquette. I found most of it to be a little outdated. While long coats and top hats would make for one fabulous wedding, I don’t particularly believe it is required for ‘formal’ weddings. In my humble opinion, I would say formal weddings call for suits & ties for men and dresses for women.

Here are a few I picked out for today:

Don’t be afraid of color, long dresses and even black. And sparkle is always welcome with open arms!

Oh, and lastly… don’t forget to accessorize! 🙂

Accessories are ‘in’ right now. Incorporating layered jewels, fun shoes and dressy clutches can definitely help spice up the outfit!

What are you wearing as a guest to a formal wedding? Please share!
