Spring outfit ideas

Spring represents renewal and rebirth. It represents the rebirth of plant life after a hard, dry winter. The warming weather revitalizes plant life, adding color to the drab outdoors. Dress for a wedding in this season by wearing colourful  and light materials. Dress colourful, but not too much colour to take attention away from the bride.

What to not wear to a wedding

  • White: it’s not appropriate to wear to a wedding, unless it’s an all white wedding. But if it is not an all white wedding then do not wear white, leave the white to the bride, it’s her day. If you must wear white then wear off white or cream.
  • Revealing clothes: this is not just unacceptable, it is offending, yes we know you look great in that romper or that short or that mini skirt, but please do not wear that to a wedding, keep it for an appropriate occasion.
  • Jeans: I don’t know why people think it’s good or even proper to wear jeans to a wedding, it’s not.
  • Too much makeup: you would be surprised att the number of women that wear heavy makeup to attend weddings, it’s not right. Please wear subtle makeup or light makeup.
  • Dresses cut too low: there is a great chance that family and friends will be at the wedding you are invited to, please don’t go shoving your boobs in people’s faces no matter how great they are.
