Ways to wear white as a wedding guest without over-shining the bride
Wearing white to a wedding does not have to be a taboo topic, but it is important to understand the boundaries in wearing white to ensure it does not distract from the bride. Traditionally the bride is seen to wear a white dress on her wedding day therefore if the wedding guest has any hesitation in wearing white then it is always important to check with the bride first – after all it is one of the most important days of her life.
However, here is an approach to wearing white that can be deemed acceptable as a wedding guest yourself…
• Tradition: First of all it is important to stay away from an all white garment; especially traditional wedding shapes, styles and fabrics.
• Block Colours: If wearing white make sure it is blocked with colours. For example, wearing our Dare Label strap top paired with different coloured jeans and accessories to make the white less apparent.
• Prints: Wearing a white floral print will distract from the purity of white. For example our Mottled Crepe Print helps add a stylish twist to the wedding guest outfit without distracting from the bride.
• Accessories: Using white accessories to pair the garments with will help create subtlety against the main body of the outfit. This would look gorgeous paired with our Navy Floral Crepe.
