What to Wear to the Royal Wedding… or any Other Weddings this Year!

3:28 PM

You're going through the mail and you receive a card from a good friend of yours. The envelope is pretty stocky, thick, and fancy. You open it, and it's a wedding invitation (in my mind, it's a wedding invitation to the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton (but we all know it's not going to be happen…)! Yes, wedding season is upon us – the sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, and love is definitely in the air! You have the date (or best friend) and you saved the date. Now the big question: what the heck do you wear? There are some rules you must follow, but here are two you must keep in mind: do NOT wear white (because the bride will be in white) and do NOT outdo the bride (because it's all about the couple, my dear! Let them have their spotlight!). There are many outfits you can select from depending on where the wedding is located. Singer22 and I will help you find the perfect outfit (shoes and accessories included) for you to wear for your pal's wedding day (or for the royal wedding…). For a Black-Tie Affair Invest in a modest and chic dress. It's not your day – it's the bride and groom's special night. Purchase a sophisticated dress and don't show too much skin by wearing a plunging neckline. Pair your dress with simple pumps and a classy clutch. You can also wear these outfits to a formal event/wedding even if it's not an overly-black tie affair!

Pick a maxi dress with a light fabric (because I am sure you do not want pit stains) but do not go too bright or tropical-ish. That looks tacky! As for sandals, pick a flat sandal because if you wear your favorite pumps to the beach… you will start sinking even before the bride walks down the aisle!

You can dress it up or dress it down. If you plan on wearing a chic suit for the wedding, add a clutch or a bold jewelry piece so it doesn't look like you are going off to work. Plus shoes say everything! Have fun with awesome pumps and wedges, but make sure you do not look too over the top. To make your dress into something modest, add a plain black blazer.
