What to wear to your brother’s wedding? It can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t need to be. If you are the maid of honor, or if you are just attending for moral support there are some things you should keep in mind when selecting an outfit that will make this day special for everyone involved.
First, check the dress code to see what type of attire is required
It is always important to check the dress code before attending any event, but it is especially important when you are heading to a wedding. Depending on the venue and time of year, the attire may be formal or more casual. If you are unsure what is appropriate, ask the bride or groom for clarification.
If the wedding is during the daytime and outdoors, it is likely that sundresses or skirts and blouses will be appropriate. If the wedding is at night, a dressier outfit may be in order. A cocktail dress or pantsuit would both be good choices.
If the wedding is more formal, men may need to wear a tuxedo and women may need to wear a floor-length gown
No matter what the dress code is, it is important to choose something that you feel comfortable in and that will make you look your best. You don’t want to be uncomfortable or spend the whole day worrying about your outfit.
If you’re going for a more casual look, then consider wearing a navy blue or black dress that’s fitted and has sleeves. This type of dress is always elegant and will still look polished at the wedding. You could also choose to wear a dress in a lighter color, like beige or champagne, if the wedding is taking place during the daytime. Just make sure that the dress isn’t too short or revealing, as you don’t want to upstage the bride on her big day.
Another option for a more casual wedding is to wear a skirt and blouse or a pantsuit. Just make sure that the colors and fabrics you choose are appropriate for the occasion. For example, if it’s a semiformal wedding, you’ll probably want to stick with crepe or chiffon fabrics for your outfit.
Of course, all bets are off when it comes to choosing something to wear if the wedding is more casual–you can go pretty much anything that you’d like.
For something more formal, go with a white or cream-colored dress with lace detailing on the neckline and hemline
Formal attire for women usually includes a dress, skirt, or slacks with a blouse or sweater. Dressy shoes with low heels are generally the most appropriate choice, and avoid too much jewelry. Many women choose to wear a formal gown for weddings, but you can also choose a less traditional look by wearing a suit or dressy separates. If you’re going to a formal wedding, you may want to consider wearing a dress with sleeves. If the ceremony is happening in the summer time, you can opt for a sleeveless look or wear a shawl to cover up your arms.
You can also wear a sleeveless sheath dress in gold or silver
A sheath dress is a very simple, straight cut dress that gives you a slim silhouette. It may be appropriate to wear it to less formal weddings or if the wedding is scheduled in the afternoon. This style of dress can also come with embellishments that give it an elegant touch. If you’re wearing a sheath dress, it’s important to select the right undergarments so you don’t end up with unsightly bumps and lines. You’ll also want to choose a complementary shoe style and accessories.
Don't forget shoes - think about your height and whether you want heels
Shoes are probably the most important item in your outfit. You can have a stunning dress or an amazing pair of jeans, but if you don’t have good shoes it won’t look as great. If you are wearing flat shoes make sure they are stylish and comfortable, some smart dresses would look better with heels . Heels come in various styles – wedges, stilettos, block heels – and it’s important to choose the right type for your height. If you are quite tall, go for a high heel; if you are shorter, opt for a lower heel or a wedge.
Don’t forget about accessories either. A great bag can really pull an outfit together, as can a well-chosen necklace or bracelet. Make sure whatever you choose is in keeping with the overall look of your outfit and the wedding theme.
