My full-figured ladies, this article is definitely for you!!! It’s wedding season, and brides aren’t the only ones looking for their perfect dress. If you have been invited to a wedding, you’re probably wondering, “What do I wear?” There are so many factors that go into choosing the perfect plus size dresses for wedding from the weather and location to what type of wedding it will be.
I thought it was important to offer this wedding attire guide:
“One of the styling questions I get asked the most is, ‘What is appropriate to wear to a [insert type of wedding here].’ so I have put together a guide for wedding guest attire that makes choosing a best dressed ensemble simple and effortless!”
- Casual Outdoor
A casual daytime wedding held in a backyard garden, or at the beach calls for an easy, breezy sundress that is flirty and sweet and either short or long. Pale or neutral color palete, lightweight fabrications, texures such as lace, cutouts, or ruffles, or ladylike prints such as floral or polka dots are perfection. Top off a daytime look with a hat or lightweight shawl to protect from the elements, and choose a wedge or flat for walking and dancing on grass, dirt or sand.
- Casual Indoor
A day dress is appropriate for a casual indoor wedding, still flirty and sweet, however more liberties can be taken with fabrication. Knees length dresses, or maxi dresses that are not too formal, and dressier fabrications can be chosen. Wedge and flats are still appropriates as are heels.
Semiformal or “traditional” wedding attire shoulde be followed if dress code is not indicated on an invitation. Cocktail dresses or a skirt and blouse are appropriate. It is always better to be over dressed than under dressed, an d classy an d conservative will always win!
4 Black Tie
Black tie wedding call for one of two options- a formal, floor length gown, or a dressy cocktail dress. When choosing a dress, consider the location of the event, the wedding colors, and retrain from wearing party, and of course, not the bride! Accessories should stay classy and conservative and a clutch should be carried instead of a shoulder bag.
- White tie
A white tie event is most formal of all wedding, and the only appropriate option is a floor length evening gown. Again, keep in mind the wedding colors, avoid white and cream. Heels should be worn even if is a small kitten heel.
We hope you found this article useful for choosing your perfect plus size dresses for wedding guest!!!
