A Guide To Wedding Season
The season of weddings is upon us, and those of you who have received one or possibly multiple invitations to a wedding this summer may be starting to feel a bit of the stress that comes with being a guest. Weddings are typically events that come with great expectations, making each and every little detail of the big day very important. Including everything from what to wear to what to give, we’ve put together a brief guide to help you survive this wedding season.
What To Wear:
With so many different restrictions and unspoken rules regarding what you can and cannot wear to a wedding, planning an outfit for a wedding can become quite a daunting task. What you decide to wear can be dependent on so many different factors such as the type of wedding you’re attending, how close you are with those who are getting married and what the weather is like on the day, so here’s a few different looks that we think could be perfect for a wedding.
