I don’t know about you, but I can feel a string of weddings coming on. All of our closest friends have children, and those children are suddenly all grown up and starting to get married.
If you’ve been invited to a wedding, you may find it’s been so long since you’ve attended one, that you feel a little out of touch knowing what to wear.
I think that is especially true at this time of year, February. It’s not full-blown wedding season yet. Come spring and summer, there are so many colorful and pretty summer wedding guest dresses to choose from that it seems easier.
So to help you decide on your outfit, here are a few great suggestions for what to wear to a winter or early spring wedding.
Green has been a big fashion color for the last couple of years, and it is a rich and elegant choice for a wedding. This green lace dress with its touches of gold makes it look rather regal and very elegant when paired with nude shoes and a nude clutch.
I like the nude because it puts the attention on the dress, and it lightens up the look as we head into March. The gold jewelry brings out the gold shimmer in the dress and makes this a very classy look.
Here’s a dress with some pretty sparkle, yet it won’t outshine the bride. Too many sequins or bright shine at a wedding can be over the top, but in this case this elegant navy shade keeps things toned down. Navy is a great choice when black is too harsh, but you still want the sophistication and slimming effect of a dark color.
The sheer neckline adds a touch of sexy glam while still being appropriate, and this dress is a respectable length. Too short and it would look like you were going to a nightclub instead of a wedding.
Here’s another Navy dress with a similar feel, but this one has sleeves and some ruching.
Oh, I forgot to mention, Isn’t that a pretty wrap? It’s just what you need to keep the chill away, or simply cover your upper arms if that is an area you prefer not to expose because of some jiggle.
This is a lovely dress that you can wear anytime of the year. Its classic cream with a very traditional damask pattern, but what is interesting is the belt, which gives it a modern twist. All the accessories are soft and subtle creating a monochromatic look that will make you look tall and slender.
I think these dresses are so pretty they could even work for mothers of the wedding party!
