Follow the dress code which is requested, the requests can vary from smartly dressed, cocktail, dress, gala, festive, black tie and casual chic. For all dress codes don’t choose black; the wedding is a happy occasion. The shades of navy blue, dark green or aubergine are great alternatives. The bride often wears a white or ivory gown, these shades are also off limit. Sometimes the bridal couple asks for a certain theme colour for the wedding or party. You can have this shade reflected in your accessory or choose as base colour for your dress. Try your best to look beautiful on this festive day, but make sure your outfit does not exceed the bridal couple. A pair of jeans is really taboo for the ladies, in some cases the men can get away with it when it is dark and tidy. Also check the location of the wedding and party, a wedding on the beach requires a different type of dress than a party in a chic hotel. If possible, wear shoes with heels or at least pumps. Even if you do not walk on it daily, a wedding is the opportunity to put them on.
