It’s no wonder that May through October are the most popular wedding months. The days are longer and the weather is nicer so you can opt for a picturesque outdoor wedding. If you’ll be attending a wedding this year, then now is the time to start shopping for your killer dress for the event. Even if the wedding isn’t until October, it’s never too early to start searching for the perfect dress. To help you pick the perfect dress, we’ve provided some tips to help you.
When is the wedding?
The season in which the wedding takes place factors into which colors you should wear. For example, spring and summer are associated with lighter and brighter colors whereas in the fall you want to aim for darker colors. If the wedding is in the spring or summer, aim for pink, orange, yellow and light blue and green. If it’s in the fall, dark purple, red and brown are ideal.
Also, the season will impact whether you should aim for a short or long dress, and if you should wear a dress with or without straps.
Where is the wedding?
Think about where the wedding will be held. Will it be indoors or outdoors?
If it will be outdoors, you want to avoid a dress that may get caught in the wind. Also, if it’s at the beach or a sandy area, then you want to avoid high heels since your shoes will get caught in the sand. If it’s a hot location, then you’ll want a breezy dress to keep you cool.
If the event will be indoors, then you have some more leeway. You can wear something dressier and any type of shoes that complement your dress.
Is the wedding in the daytime or evening?
The time of day when a wedding is held can affect the formality of the attire. If it’s a daytime wedding, a floral sun dress or skirt is suitable. If it’s an evening wedding, a cocktail dress is perfect. It’s not too sexy and you can have fun dancing in it.
What’s the wedding theme?
Even though it’s just a theme, it can help you decide on just how formal you should go with the dress. For example, if you’re attending a country-themed wedding and the groomsmen are wearing jeans, then you don’t have to go too formal. But, if it’s a formal black tie event then a beautiful sequin dress is ideal.
