When you’re choosing your outfit for a wedding, there are many things to take into consideration, starting with the weather and the venue, along with the season and the time of day when the ceremony is scheduled to take place.

Follow the most important rules of the wedding guest style guide and you’ll be on your way to picking an outfit that will both reflect your personality and help you stand out without outshining the bride.

Stay Away from White and Off-White

The oldest fashion rules for wedding, white should still be the exclusive prerogative of the bride. Even if you know the bride has chosen a wedding dress that’s not white, you should still avoid this color. However, if you simply don’t have anything else to wear or the budget for a new look, you can wear a white dress, as long as you bring in some color with your accessories.

Follow the Dress Code

One of the most important tips in the wedding guest style guide is to always stick to the dress code. If it’s “black tie optional”, the safer choice would be a dress suited for a black tie event. However, if you’re going to a beach wedding, you have a lot more leeway (wearing flats or a shorter dress), even if the invitation states black tie.
