Springtime is one of the more popular times to get married, but what do you wear to a spring wedding? Try refreshing your look for the warmth of the season by adding some color and natural inspired patterns to your look.
Spring weddings, like any wedding, will indicate the desired dress code on the invitation or RSVP card. But this provided suggestion does not always help you decide on what to wear. Though whether the invite says whether it is casual, black tie, or anything in between, it’s fun to take advantage of the season and use colors that will reflect the weather and the latest fashions.
When it comes to black tie or elegant formal weddings, you may feel like you are not left with a lot of wiggle room, but it does allow you to be a little creative. Even though these sorts of events call for floor length gowns, you can still play around with color and texture. While formal events still call for simplistic elegance, you can still try to incorporate pastels and other spring colors such as orchid. Even if you want to choose a more conservative dress with more neutral or understated but classic color, you can still accessorize with colors of the season. Colored bangles, wrist cuffs or statement necklaces are great ways to include brighter colors without making it the focal point of your look.
More casual weddings offer you a lot more leeway to experiment or have fun. While it is still a wedding and you shouldn’t look too over the top and take attention away from the bride, a more casual setting can allow you to incorporate busier patterns and colors than a more formal wedding. Play around with spring prints like florals that can still be classy and dressy. You might also feel more comfortable using colors and playing with texture when invited to a more casual wedding. Whether you’re going super casual and wearing a cotton dress or going a little more upscale with a cocktail number, there is a lot more room to play around with.
If you’re still not sure about what to wear to a wedding, pay attention to the location listed on the invitation. It will help provide you with some clues as to what to wear, especially when it comes to fabric. A destination beach wedding may call for chiffon if you’re looking for elegant and perhaps an embellished cotton if the wedding is casual. A chic city locale may call for ensembles of a sleeker material. But if you want to take advantage of the season, try to incorporate some color and add some of that fresh spring feel to brighten your look.
