The upside of being a wedding guest is that you will not be required to wear a butt-ugly bridesmaid dress during the nuptials. The downside is now that you have to figure out what to wear to the wedding, that taffeta tooth fairy-looking bridesmaid dress is not looking so bad after all. Before you call your cousin, begging to be a bridesmaid, here are 16 dresses to wear to a wedding.
1. A simple, solid-color sheath dress. A sheath dress is a close-fitting dress with a hemline at the lower thighs or at your knees. Choose a solid color that is appropriate for the time of year. For spring, think pastels, and for fall, think fall leaves.
2. A wrap dress. A simple wrap dress is easy to pack and easy to wear. This option can work year-round.
3. A swing dress in a soft color. A swing dress is a flowy dress that still maintains an A-line shape. This is a great option for spring and summer. Get it in a soft color, like gray, pale pink, butter yellow, light blue, or mint green. Hochzeitskleid Berlin
