The first of our wedding fashion tips is maybe the most important one: A dress that looks amazing on somebody else doesn’t necessarily have to look that amazing on us. We women come in all different shapes and sized and we have to embrace that and learn to dress according to our body shape. Nobody is perfect but some women always look perfect! This is because they take their body shape in consideration when they go dressing for their outfits. This sounds harder than it actually is! We learn you all the secrets on Dressing for your shape!

One of the most important wedding fashion tips is: less is more. A simple dress is often more refined and elegant than a dress with a lot going on. This will only take all attention off of your beauty instead of accentuate it, what should actually be the goal of the dress. Use your accessories to glamour up your look.
Sometimes a dress code that states what kind of wedding guest attire is required at the wedding. Some people have issues with the fact that they’re being forced to wear certain clothes, but you can also see a dress code as a good thing, the main purpose of a dress code is to provide clarity for the attendees about what to wear to the formal event. We have gathered all information you need on what to wear to a wedding with a dress code. Click here for more information.
Still having doubts about the dress code? Don’t feel embarrassed and just call the bride and groom or other friends and family to ask what is actually expected of you to wear. They will be more than glad to help you out. If there is no dress code but you’re not sure what kind of clothes to wear just go for a simple but elegant cocktail dress. With this fashion tip you will always appear in the right attire.
Some people have issues with choosing what kind of color to wear. With these wedding fashion tips choosing a color becomes easy! There are two simple rules according to wedding guest attire. Don’t wear all white, since this is the color that the bride will wear and don’t wear all black, since this color that is traditionally worn to funerals is seen as inappropriate for a wedding. We also believe that there are a few exceptions to this rules. We do not advice to wear black to the wedding ceremony. For a wedding party in the evening a black cocktail dress can be an option. White can better be avoided but if you really want to wear a white dress make sure that it cannot be in any case mistaken with a wedding dress. Choose for example a dress or skirt and blouse with a print or a different material and wear your shoes and bag in a different color. A long evening dress can in no circumstances be white. All other colors can be worn so if you don’t know what to wear go to the stores and look for seasonal colors. Daytime and summer colors are often more bright and pastel while winter and evening colors are darker.
Always wear the right lingerie under your wedding attire. It should give the right support without being visible through your clothes. Wear a nude or brown that is one shade darker than your skin color. Also avoid lace and embroidery or fabrics with too much detailing. don’t wear underwear that is too tight or to loose and go for seamless cuts. Panty lines can be avoided by wearing a thong or shorts. A lor of us can use more support. If This is also the case for you than you might consider reshaping underwear, it might look unattractive without your clothes, but they can do miracles with your clothes on! And don’t feel embarrassed, all celebrities wear them when going to the Oscars and other special events!
For a wedding you should dress more chic than for most other occasions. Therefore a large bag is not appropriate since the larger the bag the more casual it looks. A beautiful clutch will give a nice and refined finishing touch to your party outfit. Choose a simple one in a color that matches with your attire.
Of all wedding fashion tips here’s one of the most important ones: Never underestimate the importance of the right shoes! They can actually make or break your whole outfit. Heeled pumps or open sandals are by far the most flattering shoes to wear with you wedding attire, so if you can walk on them, wear them, and if you don’t, at least take the effort to practice on them before the wedding. Shoes whith a thin heel and a low sole are the most classic and perfect for any formal occasion like a wedding. In you have a dress code with a long evening dress than we believe that high open sandals are a he most beautiful to wear. It might sounds obvious but we will tell you anyway, make sure that your shoes match with your attire. you can always take a bag with flat sandals or ballerinas in it and leave it at the cloakroom, in case you get painful feet after a night partying on high heels. Never combine stockings with shoes with a peep toe.
For the most sophisticated look keep your accessories simple and real looking. Wear gold, silver, pearls, diamonds and possibly gemstones or wear bijoux that look real, you can find them in all the stores and they don’t even have to be expensive! If you’re wearing big earrings do not also wear a necklace since this would become too much. Do not wear a necklace if it competes with the neckline of your dress. For a wedding keep your watch at home, instead go for an elegant bracelet or bangle.
Here is one of the wedding fashion tips that is most fun! Your wedding outfit is only half of your total look. Off course it is always important to take care for your physical appearance. This is a special day and even though you are not the bride, see this as an extra reason to indulge yourself before the wedding! Take a warm bath just for relaxation before you’re going to do the harder work. Shave your legs and armpits, use some body cream, keep up your eyebrows and nails and use deodorant. Since this is a wedding, go for a perfect hairdo. you might consider going to the hair salon to let a professional do the job. It’s better to go for a more natural makeup look during the day. In the evening your makeup can be more heavy. Choose one feature that you want to accentuate like your amazing eyes or beautiful lips! Make sure that you use waterproof make up in case you get teared up during the ceremony.
And now our last fashion tip that is actually the most important: Wear your dress with pride! Stand straight up and enjoy your evening. the most beautiful women are confident and happy women and a smile is your best accessory, so use it!
