  • Avoid white at all costs – It’s all about the bride, avoid anything with a white base and let her have her moment.
  • Don’t forget accessories – Make the most of those statement earrings you have lying around and dust off your best clutch, these are the pieces that will bring your whole look together.
  • Wear what makes you feel comfortable – It’s a big event full of lots of people you could be meeting for the first time, you want to be comfortable and feel your best so stick to styles you know you love.
  • Don’t be scared of a jumpsuit! – Who says you have to wear a dress? Make a statement and go with an all-in-one number. Opt for woven and thicker fabrics to achieve a more formal vibe.
