The wedding invitation: what to wear?

Whether you are invited to a traditional wedding, organized in a mansion between the hills, at an atypical ceremony, on a dreamlike beach, we came out with four different outfits that you can try this summer.

Urban Wedding

Traditionally, two colours are excluded from the list of those recommended to be worn at a wedding: white and black. White and its derivatives (cream, white-champagne, ivory white) are reserved for the bride, and black is considered too sober and funerary, for the special occasions during the summer. Exceptionally, for an urban day ceremony, black becomes a modern and sophisticated choice – provided that the pieces chosen have special cuts and textures.

For example, instead of choosing a classic dress, choose a black lace skirt combined with a silk veil black top (or lace), over which you can wear a white suit jacket, strapped over the waist with a golden belt. If you think in perspective and beyond the dance floor, you will be able to integrate these pieces into your daily wardrobe, weekly and / or during the weekend. Obviously, add to the outfit accessories with personality.

Traditional wedding

You can’t fail if you choose a floral print dress (or a blouse embellished with flowers combined with an elegant skirt), especially when the invitation is for a classic wedding. If your tastes turn to modern, you should still follow the dress code, but choose a pattern with unexpected details: an asymmetric seam, 3D floral appliques or a bold print. Look for stylish and simple accessories.

If you prefer a truly classic outfit, look for a midi length dress for the ceremony, and a very long one for the evening party.

The exotic or beach wedding

This is the type of event where the outfit should be both elegant, colourful and have a relaxed, vacation feeling. Under no circumstances, wear a classic suit jacket or an ultra-elegant dress, with sequins or crystals. The perfect choice is a flowing dress, in a precious colour, maybe with a bare shoulder or with a low-cut back. Tighten your hair in a light bun and add very large, golden earrings.

Ultra-modern wedding

Who says you have to wear a dress? Break the traditional patterns and choose either an elegant jumpsuit or two pieces – like a pair of loose trousers, a luxurious fabric and a metallic fabric top (or sequin). You can wear a silk suit jacket on top, from a fluid material.
