Floral Lace + Wedding Etiquette


Floral Lace Flare Dress (comes in pink, too!) // White Pashmina // Similar clutch here // Steve Madden // Manicure - DND Pinky Kinky // Lipstick - MAC Rebel // Similar Necklace Here

It's almost that time of year again - Wedding Season! There is nothing I love more than love. Especially when I have the opportunity to get all dolled up to dance, drink, and celebrate love!

This floral lace flare dress from New York and Company is one of my favorites. The detail in this dress is beautiful, and I love the v-neckline (perfect for necklaces)! The hem is the perfect length for a wedding, and the flare in the skirt is perfect for dancing! I would wear this dress to an outdoor wedding or maybe even a beach wedding with sandals. I prefer pashmina's over shrugs/cardigans for fancy events. Pashmina's are more classier to me and easier to carry in your clutch or purse. 

There are so many different options for wedding settings/venues, whether it's in a church, a field, a hotel, or on a beach - I've got you covered!

Formal Wedding

Daytime - Cocktail or dressy afternoon dress
Evening - Depending on local customs, long evening dress or dressy cocktail dress, gloves optional

Semiformal Wedding

Daytime - Dressy afternoon dress, suit, or pantsuit
Evening - Cocktail dress, dressy pantsuit

Informal Wedding

Daytime - Afternoon dress, dressy skirt or pants or blouse
Evening - Afternoon or cocktail dress

Beach Formal Wedding

A formal summer sundress or tea-or knee-length with flat sandals

Black Tie Wedding

A long dress, a dressy suit, or a formal cocktail-length dress in a dark, neutral tone like brown, gray, or black

In addition to some ideas on what to wear to a wedding, here are some helpful tips for ya'll if you are just a guest at a wedding this season! 

1. RSVP by the deadline

Most hosts give their guests plenty of time to RSVP, and should even provide you with a postage paid envelope! 

2. Do NOT wear white

It goes without saying - let the Bride stand out.

3, Be punctual

Yes, most weddings start a little after the actual start time on the invitation (to allow everyone to settle) but you don't want to be that person that makes it awkward and stumbles in late!

4. Drink Responsibly

Know your limits - don't make a fool of yourself! Open bar too good to be true? Have your date or a friend help keep you in check. 

5. Keep chitchat with the couple light

The newlyweds have a lot of people to talk to on their big day! Don't be upset if you don't get to spend a lot of time with them.


Thank you so much for reading, Happy Friday!
