............AND WHAT TO WEAR INSTEAD !
Most know guests (ESPECIALLY ladies) shouldn't wear white to a wedding, it's that DO NOT OUTSHINE THE BRIDE RULE, IT'S HER DAY, but do you know other faux-pas?
For a Garden Wedding...........
Don't wear heels, you'll just sink in the grass. Do wear a stylish flat shoe, ideal for dancing during the reception. Opt for a metallic flat (will have a more dressy look) that goes with anything and it's high on style and comfort. Hats are nice too-daytime, protection from the sun, and appropriate for the occasion.
For a Beach Wedding.............
Don't show too much cleavage, forget super-short dresses and stiletto heels (same as the Garden Wedding, except sand). You won't be able to and should not outshine the bride (again, cannot make this too clear). Do wear a brightly colored maxi dress, or two piece set, tone down the jewelry . There are lots of great options that are cute and comfortable and appropriate. Sunglasses, don't forget the sunglasses.
Enjoy the wedding, socialize, be comfortable and appropriate!!!
