It has been some time since my last Wedding Wednesday! I’m back this week since we have a few late-summer weddings next month, and I wanted to share some style inspiration.
Being a female wedding guest, it can be challenging when it comes to choosing what to wear. The bridal party has it easy – just put on the required bridesmaid dress and you’re perfectly attired! Men can’t go wrong with a classic suit. But female wedding guests have to play the guessing game. Too fancy? Too casual? Is this the same color as the bridesmaids? Evening or daytime? Beach or castle?
Amye’s Advice: You can take out some of the guesswork by using the invitation, as well as your knowledge of the hosts and venue, as your guide. For example:
Using this on-trend navy floral invitation from Minted as inspiration for a family wedding, I suggest taking a cue from the floral detail and choosing a lace dress. This classic sheath is from JCrew. The lace compliments the floral motif without being too literal, and keeps the feminine feel of the invitation.
Guessing that the invitation colors will dictate wedding decor and bridesmaid attire, I recommend a brighter hue that is still classic and keeping the accessories neutral: gold floral filigree earrings that mirror the lace cutouts and a ladylike pearl cluster bracelet. And you can dance the night away without a care in these perfect pink-nude block heels from Topshop. This pair checks all of my shoe requirement boxes: versatile color, comfortable, block heel and on sale!
