Here’s how to make it happen: Wedding Ceremony Rules for 2018 The Rules of the Wedding Ceremony When to Dress for Your Wedding: Dress for your venue, venue service, venue, and host family, if you have them.
When to Wear: The more formal of the two dress styles you want.
Dress for the venue, service, and family, but not if you are going to be dancing.
For a small ceremony, you might wear a dress to the reception and a dress for the reception, too.
Dress the host family.
If you are a single person, don’t wear a suit.
If your host family is larger than two people, they may wear a gown or a dress.
Dress your guests.
Make sure they’re dressed appropriately for your occasion, including for your ceremony.
If the groom wears a dress, the other guests are welcome to wear dresses as well.
Dress with your wedding reception guests.
If a large crowd gathers for your reception, guests of a higher rank might wear their own gowns, too, or maybe even a cocktail dress or two.
But you might want to wear a cocktail suit or two, or a casual one, if the occasion calls for it.
You might also want to try a dress with your groom and his family.
Make the Event Fun for Everyone: Your wedding celebration should be a fun, friendly, and entertaining event.
Dress to be festive, but be respectful of other guests.
Do not wear flashy, high-fashion items that will attract attention to your reception.
Wear a casual, casual-looking dress for a casual event.
You should wear a skirt for an event with a large number of guests.
For large events, you may wear shorts, skirts, or dresses that cover a lot of the body.
For smaller events, dress with a skirt and dress shoes.
Do Not wear too much makeup.
Don’t use makeup to your disadvantage.
Use makeup sparingly.
Dress in the most formal of two dress-style styles: a suit or a tie.
The more casual of the styles is the best choice for a wedding reception, since guests who choose the formal style can dress as well, and the guests of higher rank can wear more formal dress.
Don\’t wear too many makeup colors.
It\’ll look less glamorous.
For wedding receptions, use only neutral colors for your makeup.
For formal receptions, you can use more colors.
When it comes to accessories, choose one or more that look like your wedding.
For example, your wedding planner should know about these accessories.
Wear one of the following accessories for your bridal party.
A wedding dress or a wedding tie.
For your reception dress, you could wear a short, formal gown, a shorter, formal skirt, or even a wedding cape or dress.
Wear an oversized, elegant, or glamorous wedding necklace.
For an elegant wedding, your guests should be wearing an elaborate or lavish wedding ring.
For less formal receptions or small ceremonies, you would wear a wedding ring or a ring on a chain, or perhaps even a bracelet.
For larger ceremonies, use a wedding necklace that looks like a ring or chain.
Dress Your Guests for Your Ceremony: Dress your host for the occasion.
Choose a dress style that matches the host, and you can also choose a different style for your guests to wear.
Dress up your host as well if you wish.
If this is a wedding, wear a bright red, sparkly dress, or black and white dress.
If it\’s a reception, wear white, or something else.
Make it memorable for the host and guests.
Dress as if your guests are the bride and groom.
Have them wear their wedding gowns and shoes, as well as their hair and accessories.
For this occasion, make sure the host looks elegant.
Dress a host in a way that suits the occasion, and do not take advantage of the bride\’s size.
Your guests should wear their traditional attire, but have fun with the party, too!
Your host and bride are looking forward to a great night.
Do they want to leave with a few gifts for you and your guests?
Do they love your wedding dress and accessories?
If they love the party as much as you do, do you want them to wear their bridal dress or wedding ring too?
Or, do they want you to wear it to show off their wedding outfits?
Dress as you like!
Enjoy your ceremony and enjoy your time together!
