Wedding Guest Look
Wedding Guest Look
Wedding Guest Look

From the moment you RSVP to a wedding invite, your mind gets into a spin on how to arrive as a well dressed guest. Even though there's no official rule book for what to wear, you get into a debate with yourself regarding what look would be best.

A long dress, short, fitted, print, solid color, splurge worthy designer frocks, local mall finds or custom made. The accessories as well as whether to hat or not to hat are other things to take into consideration. Shopping for that perfect look should be fun, but if you overthink it, it can honestly become quite a bit of a nightmare.

The right style and color as well as choosing what makes you comfortable and confident would have you standing out. As the drama seeker (Ha!) that I am, I was drawn to this runway piece for the color and the style. Much as this dress is multi layered and heavy, the breathable fabric made it wearable in the balmy New York August weather.

As soon as I received it, I plucked on of the flowers and sent to a milliner in Houston whose pieces I've worn in the past and she made a matching fascinator for me. I finished the look with silver accessories.

Summer has officially come to an end. Did you attend any weddings and how did you decide on a look?

    You've got me wondering if I need something in my hair for an upcoming wedding, ha! I best ask the bride!

    Hope you are having a nice weekend :) It's a really sunny and warm day today, we've been to the park :)

  3. Making a Fascinator with the flowers ,that is amazing , I like the fact that it's a breathable fabric but you know what I like most the colour ,that green is very appealing to the eye. You pulled it off Idu ! Hope you had a great time at the wedding.

  18. You certainly were the center of attention there! I did not attend any weddings this summer, and if I go I tend to opt for a safe and comfortable dress that allows for a lot of food. Eating is the best at a wedding!

  22. I attended a few weddings this Summer, and I opted for cute cocktail dresses. I was happy with my choices, but I didn't really put in a lot of effort and I probably didn't stand out. I get invited to weddings so often, that I don't really get that excited about it anymore. I usually put more effort into my appearance if it is a wedding of someone who is really close to me.

    You do look amazing in this dramatic blue gown. Such a glam wedding guest look! I love the cut of the dress...and the colour looks great on you. STunning photos as well....you're a style queen.

  42. The dress look magnificent on you. I adore the lace and layers so much Idu! I went to one wedding this summer and I had so much fun with my girl friends. We danced the night away! I got my dress from Rent the Runway. It was a lace pink and black ruffle dress. My friend that got married loved it!

  43. That mint green looks so gorgeous on you! I love the turquoise flower details, such a beautiful dress. I haven't been to a wedding in a couple of years now. Much of our friends and family are married, so I don't know when the next one will be. I remember one year we had three, all a few weeks apart and it was hectic, haha. Thanks for sharing these tips, beautiful!

  49. This is an immaculate location for a party, wedding, or other special event. Incredible views and classy interior. I have been to a few parties here and they have been really well done. The wedding venues hall was perfect for mingling. The courtyard was beautifully decorated as well.

  50. You show here a very beautiful wedding look, dear Idu! I personally mostly make it easy for me when I'm a wedding guest: I simply wear in such cases a traditional Bavarian dress, a Dirndl :)
