Miuccia Prada said: “What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today when human contact is so quick. Fashion is instant language.” What to wear to look your very best is beyond impressing people. But when you dress, you communicate a lot of things about yourself- your confidence, personality, your identity, and a lot more. It becomes your language and tells a wordless story about you. And that’ why knowing what to wear on different occasions is a crucial factor in your social life. 

Looking your absolute best is a drug-free boost for your self-esteem. Your dress code can paint a super exciting or super lame picture of your overall appearance. When you dress in a certain way, you subconsciously experience a mental shift or behavioral changes in rhythm to your dress code. 

You can make your day more exciting or fun with your choice of what to wear. 

In this article, we will reveal to you what you can wear for wedding occasions to look your very best and to boost your confidence.

Let’ get started!

For Wedding Occasions

As soon as you receive a wedding invitation and save the date, the next thought that unconsciously comes to your head is what you are to wear for the wedding. You wouldn’t want to underdress — because that might attract people looking down on you. And you wouldn’t want to overdress- it is rude to do so.

You have to remain in the thin spot of being in between overdressing and underdressing. So, what kind of dress code should fall between this boundary? The answer depends on the type of wedding you are invited to. But for all weddings, a suit or a is appropriate for men, and a gown for women. 

But what color shouldn’t you go for? And what color is just the best? Let’ take a deep dive into the different types of wedding occasion.

1. Garden wedding

This type of wedding shouldn’t give you a headache to select your color. You can go with a different variety of colors for a garden wedding. Any color you can find in a garden will be a perfect color to wear. You can go for a dreamy green lapel suite or a light blue suite for an exciting look. If you are also going on a date, you can add a tie that brings out the color of her outfit.

2. Beach wedding

In a beach or oceanic wedding, you have a variety of styles and colors to play around with. But we advise you to go for warm and earthy colors like- black, white, brown, tan, beige, taupe, gray and cream. As it will just match the environment. Try as much as possible not to go for obvious colors. Since you are going to be settled on sand, we also advise you to go for comfortable outfits that will let you move and dance around the sand with ease.

3. Black tie wedding

When a wedding invitation says “black tie” or “black tie optional”, it doesn’t always mean you must put on a tuxedo, but it’s always the most preferred option, and has grown over time to become a norm. So you can just opt for it. Black is also a safe bet not to look like you are trying too hard to stand out. But if you won’t fear to look outstanding, a deep, inky navy or midnight blue is a good choice.

What You Should Not Wear for a Wedding

No matter the kind of wedding you are invited to – garden wedding, beach wedding, black tie wedding, etc. there are some attire you should avoid putting on. Some of these attires are offensive, some are rude, while some are just inappropriate to wear to a wedding. It’s a special day for the couples, you were invited to come celebrate with them. 

So try not to wear anything that could distract them. We put forward some tips in place for you to help you in your outfit selection so you won’t go overboard in trying to be outstanding. And you won’t offend the couples or other guests with your outfit.

1. Don’t match the bridal train or groomsmen

If the invitation didn’t state the color of attire of the bridal train or groomsmen, please feel free to ask questions. The bridal train and groomsmen are special figures in the wedding and are putting on their attire as a uniform. Putting on an attire that mimics theirs can be an uncomfortable sight for both the couples and the special figures. That’s why we advise you to stay off similar colors or attire. Instead, put on something different, but not loud.

2. Don’t appear too casual

Even though it’s a casual wedding, you still have to dress with respect. The couple has put in so much planning, effort, and money for their wedding. Wearing just an easy-go might communicate the wrong information to them. You need to put on an attire that will make them feel that you value their wedding. 

We know you might not want to put on your most cherished tuxedo to a beach or to a reception because you don’t want to get them stained. But attires like jeans, shorts, yoga pants, jeans, and slippers shouldn’t be on your list of options either. If you want to feel relaxed, you can put on some relaxed shirts that are also good-looking.

3. Avoid wearing something revealing

In selecting what to wear, you should also place other people in the picture. It’s okay to put on attires that boost your self-confidence or add a touch of sexiness to you. But something that is too revealing could be offensive to other guests. Have in mind that children will also be present at the wedding venue. You don’t want your parents to avoid you because of your attire. So, remain modest. It is worth noting that a wedding ceremony is not a platform to show off your body; it is in fact a sacred ceremony.

It’s Okay Not to Have It All

It’s okay if you don’t have the right color that fits an event. You are not alone! Actually, no one expects you to have all colors of and suits. Some people you think have so many colors actually don’t. But they are smart guests. They have their way of getting the particular color they need for the events that come their way.
