Wedding Guest Attire : Cocktail or Semiformal

dress: c/0 Tobi  / bag: Tory Burch / shoes: Steven Madden / sunglasses: Celine

 As a wedding guest, we have to know the proper etiquette on how to dress for the occasion. You don’t have to go over-the-top and steal the show from the bride. It is more about looking nice, elegant, presentable and respectable. The first thing you’re going to take note when you are invited to a wedding is to know the dress code. If the dress code is not stated, check the venue  if it’s a garden, a beach , a hall, wherever.

In this dress that i was wearing here, it is more for a cocktail or semiformal. My tip, wear something that i easy to dance in, socialize and chase your little kids. A knee-length cocktail dress like this grey lace dress  is very much acceptable, not too daring and not too over the top. Throw in some accessories to finish the look with some dainty and delicate jewelries, a statement bag and elegant sandals. I opted for a strappy heels sandals because i want my sandals to be strapped in place so i don’t lose them when i’m on a dance floor or chasing my kids #momlife. And just in case, the hors d’oeuvres or a little socialization takes place outside, it’s always good to pack a good pair of sunglasses that compliments well with your outfit. You don’t want to be caught squinting in all the pictures especially when it’s too sunny. Remember, being a wedding guest is not about you, it’s for the bride and groom. Make it memorable for them.

Thank you so much for reading and have a great day!

    Cute outfit – I love anything purple. Weddings are sometimes hard to know dress etiquette for, since they are always at different venues.
