WEDDING GUEST 101: WHAT TO WEAR TO A WEDDING



hey guys welcome back to my channel so today's video is gonna be a little bit different I'm gonna be doing a wedding guest 101 video and in this video I'm gonna be showing you guys things that I would normally wear to a wedding I've been to lots of weddings always a bridesmaid never a bride so this would be a fun video to make because it is wedding season always stress out when it comes to getting a wedding invitation because it's either like dressy formal black-tie cocktail Beach dressy casual dressy which that one makes no sense to me because casual dressy semi-formal there are just a lot of things to choose from so well I'm gonna just break it down super quick while I run through these just to make it a little bit easier for you guys to maybe understand and I picked really versatile dresses that can work for pretty much any type of wedding this video is sponsored by Lulu and I don't know how many times I have told you guys the best place to go to for an occasion dress is Lulu's I put it in my digital magazine anytime someone DMV I'm like try Lulu's so this partnership it just makes so much sense to me and I'm so happy to be doing this because they have great affordable dresses for pretty much any occasion I'm just choosing weddings because it is wedding season all right so we will get started with the black tie now when it comes to black tie that usually means formal not usually that doesn't mean it's gonna be formal so I picked a couple of safe options for you I did not pick any black options because people always say you're not supposed to wear black to a wedding even though I do and I have I think there's nothing wrong with it but I went ahead and picked dark options besides black so I've got two Navy options first one is kind of why that's on this finger is this dress right here it is an off-the-shoulder Navy kind of crisscross in the front maxi high slit I'm obsessed with this dress this is my one of my favorite ones kind of living I get invited to a black-tie wedding soon so I can wear this but it's very comfortable very stretchy easy to move in easy to dance in when I chose was this one right here and it is an off-the-shoulder kind of like a sweetheart neckline navy dress it almost looks a little teal in the video but it's a dark navy this really needs to be careful that if you wear something like this or this exact one that you know what the bridesmaids are gonna be wearing because this is very similar to what a bridesmaid would wear so make sure that the wedding colors are like coral or peach or blush or something before you order this in the Navy the next one is my versatile option and this is for if you are on a tight budget and you don't have a huge budget to spend but you need a new dress I chose this one and I think this is a really good one to wear to most types of weddings but this is also good for weekends hanging out with your friends or put on a put a blazer over it belted wear it to work so this can also be worn kind of in your everyday life as well but just add a strappy heel and you're good to go for a wedding if you are buying a dress to wear to a wedding you know something like this you're probably not likely to wear it again but something like this you can definitely incorporate into your lifestyle like I wore this to work the other day with some black ankle boots and I'd wear it to a wedding as well so next I want to go into kind of the daytime dressy wedding now this is more cocktail attire and I feel like most weddings are either cocktail or casual I think a majority of weddings are cocktails so we'll go ahead and get into that and if this pop shell wedding is you know the ceremony is earlier in the day or if it's all kind of like an all-day thing I would go with something like this I feel like this material is a really great option it's dressy but it's still breathable I know it looks like it's not and it feels like it's not but it is it's very lightweight and I picked this baby blue because I thought this was perfect for a daytime and I I love the nude underlay in it as well then if you wanted to go with something a little bit more pink tones you could do this strapless embroidered dress it's kind of the same situation great for a daytime cocktail attire you can even throw on a more casual shoe and this could count as a dressy I mean a casual wedding as well it just kind of depends on how you accessorize it but I would definitely wear this to a cocktail daytime wedding another one is this right here this is probably one of my favorites I think this could count for nighttime as well even though it is very bright you could definitely do this in the night with some black accessories maybe like a black heel like how I wore it in the Tryon Park but it has a really good shape to it I love the ruffles right here and this is also something that I would wear outside of a wedding guest as well I would definitely wear this out to dinner so this is also a versatile option as well and then for nighttime if you are invited to a cocktail attire wedding you could do this one so this is kind of the same situation as the lighter blue one but I would do something darker if it is nighttime or if you're just kind of more a behind-the-scenes type girl like I am like I do not want to stand out on a wedding I want to look cute but I don't want to stand out so I'm more likely to wear something dark versus something bright or something with like a crazy print to it but I love this one because it does have the nude underlay so you kind of get that layered look and it just has they're really pretty silhouette this is a really cute dress and it's very comfortable if you are not into dresses if you feel more comfortable wearing pants I say a jump suit is definitely okay and I actually chose this one lip really dramatic Levi's try this on and Ryan was like woah leave it is just a really kind of bright reddish orange color jumpsuit with pockets might I add so you can definitely like sneak some food in there and take it to your table but this is really cute I love it it was comfortable easy to move in you know you want to be comfortable on a wedding you don't want to feel constricted in a tight dress you wouldn't be able to move because you don't want to be the person that's like sitting there while everyone else is doing the electric slide you want to be up moving and social but also feel comfortable at the same time so I think this is a great option for that as well next moving on to a more casual wedding this could be like a little you know outdoor kind of barnyard chic ceremony I was on Pinterest looking at weddings earlier so barnyard chic is like on my mind I chose this one it's definitely a lighter material you know it doesn't have a crazy silhouette it's just kind of a simple yet really pretty dress that's how I would describe this dress it's just pretty it's got fun details to it still so it's not boring it's still not as dressy as the other ones that I showed you but the colors in this one – I think it's subtle but still very spring at the same time is this one right here and I love this one this is a low-cut maxi dress with a high slit you could do this casual and where some flatter sandals or you can do some heels and make this dressy so this could really kind of go either way it just kind of depends on the length of dress that you're looking for if you are looking for a maxi I think this is perfect and I really love the print on this – I think it's pretty this dress kind of reminds me of if you are going to some sort of Caribbean wedding or if your best friend's getting married in Mexico type thing I think this is really fun I I don't know that I would wear this to just any wedding I think it has to be sort of an occasion type thing but I love the colors in it it just kind of screams beach wedding to me even though the materials like not so beachy I think the colors and the print are very fun but you could also do this for a daytime wedding as well the next is a very very casual dress that I'm not even sure that I would wear see you a wedding but I wanted to try it on you guys anyways and I'm sorry it's a little wrinkled but there probably is some sort of occasion I'm thinking like barefoot beach wedding I would either do something like this or something like this depending on like this is the bottom of the food chain casual wedding and I like I said I don't even know if I would do that but you know there are certain circumstances all over the place where crazy things happen and you just never know so lastly I wanted to get into a couple of things that I have to kind of seen it weddings and I'm just like no just two little tips that I just wanted to cover hold this dress and don't get me wrong a great dress just not for a wedding so I pulled this dress it's kind of a no even though it is black it is simple you definitely don't want to be wearing a type short cleavage at the same time dress and low back this is just kind of all of the nose for a wedding if you are wanting to go for a darker sexier look as a wedding gift I suggest something that looks like this this is tight it's got a great silhouette yet it's covering in all of the right spots if you're wearing a skin-tight dress make sure your boobies and your booty are covered and if you are showing cleavage make sure it's long if it is short make sure you're covered up up here you know you want to kind of balance yourself out don't want to give it all away at a wedding so next I wanted to leave it up to you guys I know a huge nono to wear to a wedding is white such a shame because this is the most perfect dress I love it so much but this is a very big no to wear to a wedding I have been to weddings where people have actually been wearing just an all-white dress and if there's one thing my mom taught me early on it was never to wear white to a wedding and I stand by it completely I know it might sound so old-fashioned but just play it safe there are so many different colors out there that you can wear don't wear white which leads me to my last point I wanted to leave it to you guys on if you would wear either one of these to a wedding do you consider this too close to white too close to lace to wear to a wedding both of these dresses to me are just absolutely perfect and this one actually doesn't even have white in it it's all nude this one does have white in it but it has a nude under layer I'm gonna leave it to you guys in the comments would you wear either of these to a wedding do you think this is appropriate for a wedding guest I would personally they probably not but that's just me because like I said I hate standing out in a wedding and actually this dress is the exact same as this dress Justin Navy so if you are trying to pick just go with the save option it's better to be safe than sorry going to a wedding right so that is all for this video and you know every wedding is so different every circumstance is different I'm sure some of you guys are watching this like um you can't wear that to a wedding but you know what these are just my choices things that I would pick to wear to a wedding some of you guys might not agree with them I also even think everyone's version of like cocktail black-tie is different as well I've been to very formal weddings before where people have pretty much been wearing something like this so you know my definition of cocktail or black-tie isn't always the same as yours I also want to thank Lulu's for partnering up with me I've been wanting to partner up with them for a very long time to do a wedding guest video and I'm so glad we got to do it because it is wedding season and yes I'm gonna leave you with this and I'm gonna link everything below so you guys can go grab it if you love any of this if you're a wedding guest or even if you just have a special occasion coming up baby shower graduation I think these are all amazing picks if I do say so myself thanks again to Luis and I will see you guys in my next video really quickly before I go I want to give three shout outs one shout out to the white strappy sandal from Zara second shout out to the black strappy sandal from Zara and a third shout out to my Victoria Secret pink sticky boobs that I wore throughout the entire video you guys don't own a pair of these wedding guests or not you definitely need them

  1. Obsessed with both shoe options!!! I’m tall, 5’10” so I don’t want to draw too much attention but it’s also a formal wedding. These two strappy ones are cute and low heels, also some low heel pointy sling backs? I don’t have a dress yet. Thoughts? Where did you get these two? Thank you!! 💛

  2. I love hearing how our cultures are different. I'm old fashioned so I never wear white to a wedding ceremony regardless it's long or short. However, generally it is acceptable for ppl to wear short white dresses.

    Having said that, the wedding dinner is usually a different story because the bride usually wears an evening gown or traditional outfit. I have worn white for wedding dinners where I know the bride will be wearing traditional because I know there's no way I could be viewed as disrespectful or trying to upstage the bride as traditional outfits are in bright colours like red or pink.

    My bridesmaid asked me if she could change into a white dress for my wedding dinner and I had no issues with it. So she wore white at the dinner.

  3. Love all of the dresses but wow it is so weird to see a balck dress as a wedding guest dress because in Europe it is a huge no no

  4. I would never wear white to a wedding unless it's a option by the bride (all white wedding) I wont even wear nude lol

  5. Same both of those are a 'no' too close to white even light pink sometimes looks white in pics so that's a no for me too. But I do love the navy blue & black I think is fine for a wedding. Great vid love lulu's:)

  6. Obsessed with your videos!!💗💗 found your channel maybe about 6 months ago and been watching ever since! Quick question, your new west elm couch inspired me to go buy the same one, it’s so pretty, what color/fabric is it?

  7. Sure you can wear those almost white dresses… If a wedding theme is white 😉 Otherwise, it is a no for me.

  8. I think I have to say no for the last 2 dresses because as you said, there are so many colors out there, there's always a safer option and you also never know how the bride/the family will react. I don't like standing out at weddings either and the last thing I want is the bride to be mad at me for wearing something close to white! Anything lighter than blush to me is a big no no!

  9. If you have to question if it’s too close to white, then it’s a no-go.

    I actually witnessed someone wear white to a wedding and it was incredibly inappropriate looking.

  10. Agreed not to wear the light nude/white dresses. One of my guests wore a white dress to my wedding and I didn’t mind but pictures do look strange with us standing together x

  11. No to the white/nude dresses for a wedding although they are adorable. You looked stunning in all of them.💫💫

  12. Future bride here and although I wouldn’t want someone to wear white, I DEFINITELY wouldn’t want someone to wear something bright like orange/red! Would totally throw off photos and stand out like a sore thumb! Just a thought! xoxo

  13. ahh im going to a wedding in September and they told us NOTHING about what type it will be!! i am freaking out lol. Thank you for the suggestions!!!

  14. The only time I ever attended a wedding (besides the times I was flower girl), was when I was 17 and I wore black to the wedding haha

  15. Loveeee this video! And I definitely say no to the last dresses. There are so many great options, people can stay away from white/cream for one day lol
