What to Wear to Wedding Reception

What to wear to wedding reception? When it comes to weddings, things can get pretty confusing. From overtly casual affairs to themed (shudder) nuptials, today’s weddings can be a little tricky to figure out how to dress for. It’s usually best to play by the rules and stick to the dress code listed on the invitation, but the venue can be a helpful clue as well. If you’re headed to a country estate, for instance, then it’s safe to pull out your classic glen check suit and trusty brogues. On the other hand, if you’re heading to an industrial converted warehouse, then it might be time to lean more fashion with a modern take on tailoring.

What are the 4 things at a wedding?

A common wedding reception dress code is ‘dressy casual,’ which means that jeans and T-shirts are off limits unless you have been specifically told on the invite to wear them. That doesn’t mean that you can’t keep it elegant, though; instead, opt for pressed chinos and a dress shirt or blazer for men and a pretty sundress or jumpsuit for ladies.

Another option is cocktail attire, which falls somewhere in between semi-formal and formal. It’s a great choice if you’re planning on dancing all night, as it allows you to be comfortable while still looking polished. For men, this is a great time to break out that snazzy blazer you bought last year and for women, it’s the perfect excuse to invest in a tea-length or knee-length midi dress. Just make sure you steer clear of anything super glitzy, as it’s important not to upstage the bride and groom!
