Choosing outfits for a wedding when it comes to guests is a difficult task where it is easy to make mistakes. There are many factors to consider: dress code, venue, time of year, and personal style.

To avoid breaking etiquette, you should know about the outfits that you should never choose when going to someone's wedding. The editors of Сosmopolitan told us about them.

White dress

White is traditionally "reserved for the bride," so choosing a snow-white floor-length dress among guests is considered a sign of impoliteness. Pastel, bright, and colorful options will look more appropriate.

Jeans or tracksuit

If the invitation doesn't specify the dress code of the newlyweds, it doesn't mean that simple jeans or a tracksuit will look good. An overly casual look will demonstrate that the guest does not see solemnity in celebrating the union of two hearts. If you don't have time to come up with a complicated look, you can choose a timeless classic. For example, a basic suit, shirt, etc.

Dresses that are too revealing

No matter how hot it is outside, it's inappropriate to choose vulgar dresses with too-revealing necklines for a wedding. This ceremony embodies family values and warmth, so there is usually no room for excessive sexuality and promiscuity of guests. A restrained dress with an open back, arms, or leg slit will be best in summer.

Sequins, sparkles, and stones

As a guest at a wedding, it's worth remembering that the stars of the evening should be only one couple in love. Evening dresses with sparkles from head to toe, lots of stones, and sequins can be perceived as an attempt to outshine the bride. You should choose an outfit that does not attract too much attention.

Dress code

If the invitation contains a dress code, you should follow it. Perhaps the couple wants to take photos in the same style or create a special aesthetic. Ignoring the couple's requests will be considered rude.

Holes, tears, and dirt

The only thing worse than an inappropriate outfit is untidy clothes with holes, dirt, tears, etc. A wedding is an important day for a couple, and everyone would like to see this event be a solemn one for their guests as well.

Bare shoulders

Many newlyweds attach a sacred meaning to their wedding ceremony, so they would like to see modesty from their guests. In such cases, you should respect the place where the vows are exchanged and bring a shoulder cover to cover yourself at least in the church.

Pants

A dress is a beautiful but not always practical option for a wedding. However, it can be replaced with pants if you choose the right top. For example, complement classic trousers with a blouse, jacket, or other smart wardrobe item.
