Wedding Blues

8:19 PM


It’s wedding season, and although I’m not hearing wedding bells for myself, I have had the opportunity to recently celebrate several couples on their big days. Their wedding invitations (or any wedding invitation in general) is not something I take lightly! I have seen first-hand the amount of hard work, stress and $$$$ that goes into planning nuptials and as a result, I consider it my duty to wear something classy and appropriate for whichever wedding I am attending.

That said, I am not certain others consider their invitations as high an honor. I’m not sure if the general population is simply struggling with dressing, or struggling with manners, but either way I wanted to simply remind the world the Top No No’s for wedding guest attire.

WHITE

Really?! There were no other colors you could choose to wear for one day?! I don’t care if white is the only color you wear, 365 days a year – wearing white - especially a white dress - to a wedding, makes you look like an asshole.

Sure, the bride could be totally cool and not care at all. But I guarantee there will be at least one person in attendance who thinks you look desperate and selfish for not considering the bride when picking out your outfit.

SHORT DRESSES

I really shouldn’t have to explain this one, and yet it’s one of the most common offenders! There is a time and place for a short short dress (or so I've been told) and a wedding is not it. There is nothing classy about exposing your goodies to the groom’s grandma on the dance floor. Rest assured if you wear a short dress, you will be the talk of the wedding…and not in a good way.

I understand that you live in fear of meeting the man of your dreams at the wedding, and he’s going to overlook you because you’re not in your fav booty flattering bandage dress, but any man worthy of meeting, would respect your classy decision to honor the bride and groom on their day. Enough said.

TIGHT, SHORT DRESSES

Please see description for “Short Dresses”.

No seriously, tight dresses look equally as cheap as short dresses and dear sweet baby Jesus if you are wearing a short AND tight dress to a wedding, leave before you give the Mother of the Bride a heart attack.

BELLY BUTTON

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good two piece outfit right now – and I really love a little glimpse of the midriff. But not at a wedding! The only belly button that should be seen on a wedding day is the bride’s on the night of her wedding. Save your cute little number for your next brunch!
