When you receive an invite for your friends' wedding, don't let it get lost on the coffee table, you should check the date and decide if you'll go. Whether you can or can't, respond as soon as possible because it is very important for the couple to find out who's coming. If you'll go, when all of a sudden it hits you-- what are you supposed to wear?
It's not that easy if you do not pay attention to some important details that are typically overlooked. These details include wedding theme, etiquette for wedding attire for guests, and most importantly, the time and season of the year in which the wedding is held. Once you find out about these details of the wedding that you are attending, you can easily choose the best wedding guest dress to wear.
Dress as you would for any other social event held at the hour and during the season of the wedding. For example, if it's a spring brunch or luncheon, a pretty suit or floral dress would be appropriate for women. For evening, depending on how formal the wedding is, cocktail dresses would be a good choice.
Don't wear anything too flashy like sequins which are probably a no-no. Do try the outfit on before you leave home if you're going to be getting ready in a hotel. Check that the outfit works and that you have the right underwear etc.
