How To Be A Chic Wedding Guest

Hey curvy girls all over the world,

In my eyes, April through September is wedding season. Every wedding I’ve ever gone to has been within those months. I actually like when they are because that means the weather is going to be nice. I can possibly find a cute spring or summer wedding guest dresses to wear. Unless you’re a bridesmaid, I find that it can be a challenge trying to figure out what the heck to wear to a wedding. First, you have to make sure you’re not breaking two cardinal rules.

Davids Bridal Short Tank Lace Dress

Tip #1

One, don’t wear white.Two, don’t upstage the bride. If you break either one of those rules, you can kiss that friendship goodbye. As we are smack dead in the middle of wedding season, what does one wear as a wedding guest?

Tip #2

it’s important to follow whatever dress code the invitation lists. If it doesn’t list one, then I always say go with a cocktail dress. You can never go wrong with cocktail attire at a wedding. Recently, I found a chic little lace cocktail dress at David’s Bridal and it made for the perfect wedding guest dress.

What I loved most about the short tank lace cocktail dress was the bold bright pink color. The deep plunging neckline. It made me feel sexy and sophisticated. I’ll be the first to tell you that when I think of David’s Bridal, I always think of wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses. I never thought to shop there for wedding guest dresses or even dresses for events.

When I went on their website, I found that they have tons of dresses that would work for basically any fancy smancy event you have ranging from black tie to a ladies who lunch event. David’s Bridal offers a variety of styles and silhouettes to suit every size and budget. They offer stylish pieces for plus sizes up to a size 30 and they’ve done quite a few collaborations with major designers like Zac Posen and Cynthia Rowley.

I accessorized the lace dress with a silver necklace and silver stud earrings. I added silver ankle strap sandals, and a heart shaped clutch. I kept my makeup simple with a pink lip. They have tons of fabulous wedding guest dresses for any event that you need to look jazzed up for.
