Wedding season comes with its own set of pressures. The time of weddings tends to peak in the spring and summer, when the weather is fairest, and the air is warmest. Still, even if you’re a guest at a wedding, you still need to present yourself in an acceptable way. Doing so shows that you respect the couple getting married, and care about all the proceedings!
But how can you get ready for all the invites that will come flooding in? What things might you need to do, or at the very least consider?
Consequently, here are some of the best ways that you can get ready for wedding season!
Get in Shape?
Obviously, it’s okay to attend a wedding in any shape you like. Few would judge based on shallow preconceptions. Of course, there is also the point that attending a wedding involves wearing a lot of tight or tailored clothing. In fact, in one wedding that took place, some guests were encouraged to wear their own wedding dresses from days gone by, on account that it’s a shame to only wear it just the once in a lifetime.
If you’re expecting to fit into very tight suits or dresses but have perhaps put on a few pounds over Christmas or just in general (most of us do, it’s okay!), it could be a good idea to hit the gym. You could buy new clothes too, if you want to skip the gym entirely. Still, you might just want to sneak in a few workouts so that you can look a certain way that you like too. In the end, a bit of exercise is always a good idea when preparing for anything!
Avoid Blacks and Whites
Everyone knows to stay away from black and white colours, and yet still, some people forget or slyly enjoy upstaging other attendees. Well, because it’s that important, it’s worth repeating anyway; stay away from black and white colours! White is (typically) for the bride to wear with her dress, and black is for mourning at funerals.
You might love that black or white dress/suit you’ve got tucked away in your closet, but you’ll draw far more scowls than compliments at a wedding if you choose to wear it. Keep it tucked away for the appropriate occasion, and go for spring and summer floral designs – or just any other colour instead; greens, blues, reds, oranges, etc. You’ll be more in line with the wedding themes, appear trendier and more fashionable, and add some pop of colour too!
Accessorise the Ensemble!
Everyone loves accessories. They’re a series of perfect little outfit toppers, capping of any look with finesse and nuance. Man or woman, if you’ve got a set of great cufflinks, glasses, or watches etc, your entire ensemble will look well put together and coordinated – instead of being thrown together last minute as you’re walking out the front door!
For the ladies out there, a quality clutch bag or purse from Radley London could be just what you need to complete your outfit. It’ll give you enough space to store some makeup, money or small charges, and at the very least, will give you something stylish to fidget with if you happen to have any anxiety out in public.
