A wedding is an event that when invited to you have to take out your best dress and look gorgeous. However, there are rules and dress codes that one should at least follow when attending.

It depends on the type of wedding the respective couple has, some like casual weddings, while others like to go an extra mile to ask their guest to color coordinate with a color; to each their own.

To make the couple satisfied and happy on their special day, ensure to dress accordingly.

Here are some of the dressing tips you should not wear to a wedding;

Avoid casual wear

Some weddings prefer that their guest be chilled and put on a casual outfit; this does not mean you wear the most outrageous outfits.

Wearing flip-flops, shorts, sweatpants, or yoga pants can be too casual and unappropriated for a wedding.

You can pick a dress that fits and a pair of heels or wedges to look casual. As for the gents, some khaki pants and nice shoes will do perfectly.

Ask if not sure

Sometimes wedding invitation cards are not very clear about what the dressing code is.

You can look up the wedding website and see if its more detailed or look at their social media channels just in case they left out information.

When you've done all you can and can't find anything, you can always call the bride to ask what she expected the guest to wear.

This will be a great idea just to respect the wedding day and the couple. Remember, the goal is to make them happy, and if you got invited, the least you can do is dress appropriately.

Don't be too sexy

A wedding is a sacred event.

A couple, is presented as man and wife in the presence of the lord.

You should avoid overdoing the sex appeal at a wedding.

There are different ways to show that you are sexy and attractive by incorporating slits, backless backs, and a mesh outfit; it will show you what you would like.

Don't match the bridal party

Ensure to look at the invitation card to see what colors will be used by the bridal party.

Sometimes a color you pick may be what the bridal party will wear, that means you'll have to change your dress.

A black dress is always a better choice when you don't have an outfit, but at a wedding it is a no go zone.

A black dress would make you look like you are in a somber mood at a wedding and we wouldn't like that.

Pick out a dress that will fit the aesthetics of the special day and make everyone happy, especially the couple.
