As spring wedding invitations begin to land in your mailbox, they may mention dress codes that leave you scratching your head–or worse, offer no clue at all. Here’s how to decipher the lingo and head to the every spring wedding confident that your outfit is on point. Some wedding guest dresses are lovely and be selected according to your requirements and needs.
Think of semi-formal attire as wedding guest default mode. If the invite doesn’t specify how to arrive, reach for a classic cocktail dress (lace is always lovely) and accessories that sparkle, then rest assured you’ll be dressed appropriately no matter what.
Now’s the time to pull out all the stops–without upstaging the bride, of course! A formal or black-tie wedding is the perfect time to slip into a floor-length gown, the highest of heels, and statement accessories like a metallic clutch and drop earrings.
Use the color scheme of the invitation as a hint as to which color the bridesmaids might wear. You may want to opt for another hue so as not to appear too matchy.
