What outfits are appropriate to wear to a wedding?

"Wedding season" is just around the corner (imo wedding season is whenever you decide to have the wedding) and I've been thinking about what is and isn't appropriate to wear to a wedding. My cousin is getting married relatively soon and I need a new dress or outfit to wear because the last time I attended a wedding I was pregnant... and that dress doesn't fit right any more for obvious reasons. It is so strange to me that there are so many taboos with what women can and cannot wear to a wedding. Like wearing white will upstage the bride or wearing black is too morbid and should be reserved for a funeral. But what is too much white? Is it okay to wear some white? Or should we wear no white at all? And while the color conundrum is overwhelming enough then you have to consider what is available for someone of your size. For bigger women like me it is extremely difficult to find a dress that works well. And of course black dresses are flattering but once again most people think that they shouldn't be worn to a wedding. After you think about the initial taboo of color and sizing then you have to think of what works well with your skin color. It gets to be really daunting. Not to mention that one persons idea of a cocktail dress is not someone else's (I'm looking at you Dillard's...). My question to you all is what is your opinion on wedding guest attire? Are some white and some black in an outfit okay? Where do you shop for an outfit for a wedding? And as an added question should men wear a blazer or a jacket to a wedding?

It really depends cause wearing red is kinda bad too for wearing at a wedding but I don't think black would be bad as long as you accessorize with nice pop of color so it's not all black, I got my wedding season dress from forever 21 and they have a lot i'm really petite and they have so menny different sizes I always find something that fits me and I usually never can they have a plus size section that has a lot of things I wish were in the regular sizes as well so they really know how to make every size look and feel pretty, Goodluck! I hope you find the perfect dress.

I'm not sure but here it's ok to ask the bride if she does not want people dressed in black... or white... or if there is a color reserved for the bride. You know like when the bride and groom wear something red so no one else should wear red outfits.

I hope you can contact the bride or groom and ask them those things.

As for the body shape issue, I know that can be a pain!!!! But look on the Internet what kind of dress would be more flattering for your body shape!!! Those advices really work ^^ :heart:

Good luck and post pictures! !!!
