These are 7 things that you shouldn’t wear to a wedding.
1. Too Much White or Too Little Black
This is the biggest mistake that you can make before a wedding. For funerals, it is better to dress in black or white. If you are a fan of one of these colours and want to wear it to a funeral, make sure it doesn’t cover your entire body. Instead, celebrate the occasion with more sober and brighter shades that are better suited for the wedding function. If you are averse to black and white, try adding some color to your accessories or wearing elaborate jewellery. Bright neon colors are also an option.
2. Denims Are Not Acceptable
While we agree that some men may wear denims to a party, it is unacceptable for women to wear denims at a wedding ceremony. If the event allows, denims are considered casual wear. You can also wear pants if you prefer to wear denims. For a wedding, it is important to remember that you must not be underdressed.
3. Ornamental Headbands and Tiaras
When can you expect to wear an ornamental or a tiara on your wedding day? Only when you are the bride. You will be noticed at the wedding by wearing accessories such as these, but it is not something you want to do if you are a guest. These special accessories should be reserved for the bride. This is her dreamy affair, and not yours!
4. Over-Doing it With Jewellery
While you might love all things gold, that doesn’t mean you can wear them all at once. Your jewellery should be matched to your outfit. Wearing a heavy necklace can make it difficult to wear earrings. Balance is key, so don’t overdo it with gold jewellery. It is normal for a bride to have more gold ornaments on her D-day. Accessorize according to your style and personality.
5. High Heels
If you’re going to a wedding, high heels should be avoided. No matter what you wear, comfort is key. Pointed heels are a bad choice as weddings are often held in open fields or farmhouses with mud, grass and a bit of moss. The uneven surface can cause you to trip and wobble. You can instead wear platform or kitten heels. They look great with saris or lehenga and are much more comfortable for your knees.
6. Short Dresses
While short dresses are beautiful, you should avoid anything too revealing at a wedding party. You can ditch the figure-hugging, short-length dresses for a more conservative occasion and wear skirts and dresses that reach the knee. An anarkali or Kurta can be worn with palazzo pants if you don’t like Indian clothes. You don’t want prying eyes to judge your character, would you?
7. Low-Cut Outfits
These also fall under the “too transparent” category. Avoid exposing too much skin as this can make you appear out of place at the event. Avoid wearing plunging necklines at a wedding. Avoid wearing strapless or backless dresses at weddings. You will be the star of the party if you don’t wear a lot of strapless or backless clothes.
