When you’re invited to a church wedding, it’s important to know what to wear. While there are no specific rules, there are some general guidelines that will help you look your best. In this post, we’ll discuss the dos and don’ts of dressing for a church wedding, so you can feel confident in your outfit choice.
Plan the outfit you want to wear in advance
It’s better to plan your outfit ahead of time so that you are sure that you will look great on the day of the wedding. Make sure to choose something that is comfortable and that you feel good in. Of course it has to be suitable for the wedding as well.
If you have been invited to a church wedding, then you should check what the dress etiquette and rules suggest regarding the clothing that’s appropriate for this type of event. You can also ask someone who has been married in a church because she knows about these details better than anyone else.
Most churches have a dress code that sets clear rules regarding the clothing that is allowed or not. In these cases, you should always follow the guidelines given to avoid being turned away at the door. If there are no specific rules, then it’s better to ask.
Wear a dress that is appropriate for the event, not too short or too revealing
Also, make sure that the shoes you choose to wear with your dress are comfortable. If you are attending a church wedding, then it’s better if your outfit is appropriate for this type of religious event. You can also opt for wearing flats or at least low heels (although high heels always go well with any outfit).
A short dress should be avoided, whether you are going to a church wedding or not. It would be better if you wear a dress that is knee-length. If it’s cold outside, then wear opaque tights and throw on a classy coat or warm jacket over your outfit when leaving the house, just in case it gets chilly later on.
Avoid wearing any clothing with religious symbols on it - this includes crosses, crucifixes, and yarmulkes
You should avoid wearing any clothes with religious symbols on it. This is of course if the wedding takes place in a church. So you should not wear crucifixes, little crosses or yarmulkes.
If you are an atheist, then this might seem unfair but even though the dress code isn’t compulsory for non-religious guests so if you don’t want to follow it, that’s perfectly understandable. You can always choose a outfit that is stylish and elegant without any religious symbols on it.
If you have any doubts or questions about what to wear to a church wedding, then don’t hesitate to ask someone who knows better. A friend or family member who has been married in a church before is the best person to ask for advice. Good luck and have a great day!
Be careful of jewelry choices as well - avoid necklaces with crosses or other religious symbols
When it comes to jewelry, the same rules apply. You should avoid wearing necklaces with religious symbols on them. If you are wearing a dress that has a high neckline, then you can get away with wearing a necklace. Just make sure that it’s not too flashy or gaudy.
Statement earrings always look great with a dress, but make sure they are appropriate for a church wedding. If you want to wear earrings, then go for small and elegant ones that have no religious symbols on them.
Try to go for an all-white look if possible so it matches the theme of the wedding
You can always choose an all-white look. This kind of outfit is appropriate for most weddings so it’s great if the dress code isn’t specified. It will also match the theme of the wedding, which is always a good thing.
If you want to add some color to your outfit, then you can choose a pastel color like pink, blue or green. Just make sure that it doesn’t clash with the colors of the wedding.
A hat can also be a great accessory to wear if it matches your outfit. It will keep you warm and add some style to your look.
If you're planning on wearing heels, make sure they are comfortable enough to walk around in for at least two hours
Its important not to wear shoes that are uncomfortable or else you’ll end up with aching feet after a while. If the wedding takes place in a church, then heels of any kind should be avoided because you will have to walk around and standing can get tiring after some time.
You can also go for more formal types of footwear such as pumps, loafers or lace-ups. Just make sure they are comfortable enough to walk in for at least two hours.
Nevertheless, then the best thing to do is to ask someone who has been to one before. They will be able to give you some great advice and tell you what to avoid.
