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 as part of your outfit 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.
