What to wear to a Wedding as a Guest

The dress code for a is usually formal, as in the men are wearing suits and women are wearing evening dresses. If you’re unsure how formal people will be dressed you can always ask the bride/groom or simply judging by the type of crowd invited or the location of the event. 

Let’s put it like this. The wealthier the crowd, the more extravagant dresses you will see. The simpler the wedding is (cost wise) the less formal you need to be. That’s pretty straight forward.

As a general rule I would say gown or mid length dress for the ladies. No mini dresses or sexy outfits! A wedding is usually a classy affair and you need to dress accordingly. Plus there is always elderly people around so you need to show respect towards them and their generation.

With regards to color it’s a big NO-NO to wear a white dress as a guest. Be also careful with “white-ish” colors like Champagne, pale nude / pink. If you still want to wear any of them you can ask the bride/groom what color the bridesmaids dresses will be, so you don’t show up looking like a bridesmaid.

Here are some wedding guest outfit inspiration from this summer. As you can see on some pictures, Jet set Babes go really all in with their outfits.

  1. Hey 🙂 I got a bit boring question. Do you know how the jet set girls deal with hair removal? Normally I get everything waxed, but since I moved to a warmer country I don’t have time to get ready for a new wax. I hate to shave so I try to avoid that. So I was just thinking what does the jet set girls who need to be “perfect” all the time do? I know laser is an option but it takes years before the result is perfect, and you need to have hair when doing it, and I doubt these girls are walking around with hair on their bodies.

      Try No!No!PRO Three or four ears ago, I did laser hair removal for over a year (in a private skin clinic) and have some growth but it is very limited. NoNoPro.com is for safe hair removal at home and will not cost you as much as I paid for my laser hair removal in a clinic!

  2. Hi there!
    Really useful article, but I need a more personal tip from you. A wedding is coming! A colleague and friend of mine is getting married, she is chinese so I decided to wear a navy blue dress. The dress is maxi and backless, chic split to the front and crossover. She is definitely a jetset girl (she is 20 and she’s getting married to a rich businessman). Well, I don’t know which color to match with shoes, purse and nails (I don’t like silver because it reminds me of robots, hehe). Any ideas?

    • I personally love Navy color with gold or beige. I would 100% wear nude/beige heels so they are not so much in focus but when are, it matches nicely with the legs and dress. Clutch I would go for gold rhinestones like this: http://jetsetbabe.com/i-love-my-karen-millen-clutch/ or why not have something that gives a little bit of a contrast while the colors look still nice together? It can be beige, pastel pink, grey etc. For nails I would just go for french manicure, I think it’s classy and elegant 🙂

      • Thank you JB for the quick and useful response! I’ll definitely take into consideration your great tips. The KM clutch is super. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
