Hola Muñecos!

Its wedding season and I thought this was a good time to give some tips and advice to help you put together some killer outfits for these joyous celebrations. As is always the case with fashion, age is a factor when deciding what to wear… but, you may be surprised how far down on the list that consideration is.

FIRST CONSIDERATION: Dress code or No Dress Code.

There are six dress codes a couple might choose to have for their wedding guests. To understand each of these I am using information found on invitations by dawn’s website.

Dress Codes – What to Wear

1. Casual – casual dress suited to the season

2. Cocktail Attire/Semi-formal/Dressy Casual – Cocktail Dress

3. Themed Attire – Determined by the couple (See #5 Vintage below)

4. Formal Attire/Black Tie Optional – floor length dress or evening pant suit

5. Black Tie – formal gown

6. White Tie – full length ballroom gown
