Posted by Isabelle Hurrell on June 7 2017.

Wedding fashion very important and planning what to wear can be challenging.

Wedding Fashion Theme

Guests are an integral component of the ceremony and should dress appropriately, taking the venue, theme and dress code into consideration.




Dress Codes

Dress accordingly while ensuring that you do not offend, or wear inappropriate clothing that distracts people from the event.

wedding colours Wedding fashion entails rules. For western weddings, guests avoid wearing white because that’s the bride’s colour. Black is also a colour avoided because it is associated with sadness. Your outfit may include black items but dressing in a completely black outfit is not recommended.






Simple and Stylish

Avoid Casual Clothing
