I am sure that you have received at least one wedding invitation for this summer, it is the season after all. But attending a wedding comes with its own do’s and don’ts like;

1. Do not wear white

You really do not want to show up the bride, but do opt for something like this, Boat neck V cut back slit floral dress. Love this for an afternoon garden wedding.

2. No wearing Red

Red is bold and always makes the wearer stand out and as this is the bride’s day and all eyes needs to be on her. Why not go for this floral flare dress in black with red floral detail. It is not all red so you will still be safe.

3. Do not overlook the invitations dress code

OH, what a blunder this will be, as the eyes will be on you for all the wrong reasons. For a formal black tie dress code a cocktail dress is required. If you are keeping it simple, this black irregular cut out lace hem is a good choice.

If it the dress code is relaxed colourful summer dress attire; option 1 this spaghetti strap asymmetrical dress would be my first pick

Option 2 I love this stand collar chiffon pleated dress, it’s summery and floaty

4. Do not be a carbon copy of the Bridesmaids

I do not think that this is a mistake that any one wants to make, but to help you avoid it, a list of the top wedding colour schemes for 2015. So if possible ask the bride or one of the bridesmaids what the colour scheme is, so you can avoid looking like an extra bridesmaid.

5. No inappropriate attire

The wedding is a bit classier then the Hen night or a girls club night so dress according to the occasion. You also do not want to look like you just stepped out of a convent all covered up. Keep with the dress code and make sure that nothing is hanging out but if you are showing some skin make sure that it is done in a way that does not offend some older guest or keep all eyes on you and not the bride.

When you do get that invitation in the post have a look at the dress code on the invitation. Stick with the above rules and you and the bride will both be happy on her big day.
