What Not to Wear to a Wedding - as a Guest


Maybe we should have named this blog post "What to Wear" but this sensitive issue keeps coming up. First of all we would just like to say that we keep our blogs very positive so we are trying really hard not to turn this into a Total Rant. But W.O.W. our feathers sure got ruffled lately as the start of Spring Wedding Season is upon us.

If the Bride wants you to wear white, then she will specifically ask you to do so. It will be in her invitation suite and on the wedding website. If she has not then for the love of weddings don't show up in any shade of white to her wedding.

It's totally understandable that you want to wear something light and dreamy to a spring wedding, or any wedding for that matter ... but ask yourself this question before you purchase that dress.

Are You The Bride?

If you are not the Bride then please for love of everything holy don't get a WHITE -CREAM - BEIGE - BEADED - BLUSH - PASTEL LACE DRESS!

These are a couple of pins (along with others) that we came across that made our blood boil ... and we

can see why there seems to be so much confusion about what a guest should wear to a wedding.

So SAS is here to clear it up! These are totally gorgeous looks for a wedding day, rehearsal dinner, or a farewell brunch... If You Are The Bride.

The red lace gown is a fabulous look for a wedding guest. But if we catch a guest in a white jump suit on wedding day and you're not our bride then you will get an {eye roll}!

For instance this inspiration has been pinned over 11,000 times. And if you're the Bride then it's a wonderful choice. But if you're a guest please steer clear.

Yes wedding traditions are changing everyday. It's hard to keep up sometimes. Along with dress codes in general ... because whew YES you can finally wear white after Labor Day (just not to a wedding).

With all these new ideas and trends mixed with extremely popular shopping websites and Pinterest with pages and pages of Wedding Guest Inspiration looks. It's very easy to see how someone can get confused.

Trust us - there is nothing worse than showing up to a wedding as a guest and competing with the brides look.
