Today we've been invited to an evening wedding, a.k.a. "cocktail attire". Any wedding in which the reception takes place after 6 PM is considered "evening". There is usually a dinner and cocktails to follow.
This is my favorite wedding to dress for because you really get to doll up! I would suggest choosing an outfit that is comfortable. Dresses that have an empire waist that flow away from the body will achieve a thin waist line…even after you’ve eaten dinner and drank a few glasses of champagne!
Below I have selected a few items that I believe will give you a comfortable yet chic look. In addition, we have broken RULE #2 NO BLACK.
Black can be worn to a wedding when paired with fun accessories. You can’t wear ALL black…unless you’re the groom’s ex and you want to look like you’re going to a funeral! Pairing your dress with splashes of red usually does the trick. Taking a cue from Dita Von Teese, give your outfit a 50’s pin up feel. Pair peep-toe stilettos with large rhinestone earrings. Pin curl your hair and wear a red lip with a thick eye liner. Complete the look with red nails and you’re ready for a great night!
