Here's What to Wear to a Formal Wedding
Ah, the stress of figuring out what to wear to a wedding can almost take the fun out of the whole celebration. But we're here to break down the wedding-guest dress code for you, one nuptial venue at a time, to hopefully make the entire process easy and stress-free. We've already rounded up some of the best dresses to wear to a summer ceremony, found the top frocks for a winter wedding, and today, we're spotlighting one of the most difficult dress codes of all: what to wear to a formal wedding.
Formal weddings are lavish, they're elegant, and they're actually much easier to dress for than you might think. Why? Because all you need to do is pick something that's inherently chic, refined, and elegant. Apply what you know about traditional partywear and use that when picking out what to wear to a black-tie ceremony. Some failsafe pieces you can always lean on? You'll find our four favourites, below.
