When you’re planning your wedding, one of the things you need to determine is your dress code. So does Armani “suit” you or do you prefer to keep things casual with flip flops and board shorts? It’s your wedding, so you should definitely “do you.” However, here are some thoughts associated with casual and formal wedding attire that may be helpful…
Believe it or not, your wedding dress code can play an integral role in fashioning (pun definitely intended) the atmosphere for your event…and this goes for weddings or any special occasion. Basically, the idea is that the more formal the attire, the more elegant your special day may be. The more casual the dress code, the more festive and playful your day may seem.
Now, there is casual – I’m thinking a flowing, flowery sundress, trendy jumpsuit or a pretty blouse with a nice skirt or slacks, and flats or sandals for footwear. Men might lean toward full-length khakis and a long sleeve button down oxford or polo shirt. Then there is CASUAL, which could be anything from cutoff jeans and a Hawaiian shirt to tube tops and bathing suits.
If you want to dress things up a bit, you could go to black-tie optional, where a fancy, tea-length cocktail dress for women and a dinner jacket (light colors for a daytime event and black for evening) would suffice. Then there is always full-on black-tie, complete with tuxedos, cummerbunds and formal floor-length gowns, heels and clutches.
