Summer Weddings

I get lots of questions about what to wear to weddings and I am always surprised by how many people wonder if they can wear white. The answer is NO! You cannot wear white to a wedding unless you are the bride. Or perhaps if the bride herself chooses a white dress for you a la Pippa Middleton. The point is, white is the one color you really should avoid at a wedding. Beyond that, the rules relax. Yes, you can wear black although it looks best at an evening wedding. You should be sensitive to the location of the ceremony; if it is religious and in a place of worship, consider covering your shoulders and cleavage with a light wrap. You can take it off for the reception. Above all, honor the occasion by dressing according to the bride's wishes. If she says formal, get dressed up. If she says costume, then, geez, put on a costume and make her happy! In the meantime, here's a little summer wedding outfit I put together for your viewing pleasure. Adjust the shoes for the location- flats for outside on grass or sand, heels if not. Otherwise, this works for any time of day and/or level of formality.
