Receiving an invitation for a wedding is a common occurrence for all. Maybe it’s a union of one of the members of your family, a friend or perhaps one of your office mate. If they invite you to attend their own wedding it simply reveals that they value your presence to witness one of the most valuable events of their life. Therefore, it is but proper to return the courtesy by going to the occasion with an appropriate wedding wear.
Generally the usual concern of the guest is the proper wedding wear to use on the event. This is understandable as nobody wants to look different amongst the other guests by being over dressed or under dressed. If the dress code for the wedding ceremony is not indicated on the invitation card it is advisable to ask the host directly. This is very important as it has been a common mistake for some to ask friends on what they will wear instead of asking the host or the wedding coordinator for the right information.
On the other hand, if ever the host is unreachable to reply to questions as they must have been already occupied with all the preparation of their wedding then your own best judgment is the only thing to depend on. Considering the venue and also the time of the wedding will somehow gives you an idea on the suitable wedding wear to use. For instance a beach wedding to be held early morning will most likely require a more casual clothing as compared to an evening wedding reception celebrated in an upscale hotel. Another tip to take into account is to take a look of the invitation card delivered to you. Was it done in a casual style or maybe on a far more formal way? By considering this you can have a notion on the preference of the bride and groom on how their own wedding should take place.
Another aspect the guest can look at when selecting a wedding wear is to determine if the couple has a colour motif for their wedding. As mentioned, the invitation card is the best method to determine all this. It is definitely acceptable if you come wearing the same colour tone as that of the bridal party as it will make you look coordinated with them. The single thing to avoid is to come in white. Because on the wedding it is actually expected that only the bride should be in white. So it’s not proper if you will share the same limelight with her.
A wedding is one of the greatest events in life that any person can celebrate. This is the reason why the bride and groom personally handpick the people who will come to share that momentous occasion with them. Therefore as a manifestation of thanks towards the couple for inviting you it is necessary that all guests should arrive at their most appropriate wedding wear to really make the day for the couple as memorable as it can be.
