Weddings are a momentous part of the human experience, especially since this marks the union between two loving people who want to spend the rest of their lives with each other. This means it’s perfectly reasonable for you to want your wedding to be as perfect as possible, and part of this is ensuring you get your wedding dress code right. One good way to ensure the aesthetics of your wedding will be A-Okay is to make sure you have a wedding dress code in place for your visitors.
Wedding Dress Code For Your Special Day
Here’s a key thing many wish they’d known before setting their wedding dress code, and how this can affect the entire aesthetics of the wedding. If you’re in the wedding planning process be mindful of these tips as this can transform your wedding’s appearance.
According to InStyle, a wedding dress code can be challenging to enforce especially since guests tend to interpret the words to become entirely different concepts. For instance, a “black-tie” event is still something a floor-length boho dress can fit in, but its flowy design can be a bit casual for the experience, where evening gowns and formal dresses are the norm. This means carefully letting your guests know your wedding dress code is important.
If there’s a key thing when it comes to setting your wedding dress code, it’s perhaps this: be as specific as you could get. It’s important that when pertaining to certain types of dresses or a certain palette, make sure you are precise and specific in your wedding invitation. It’s not too bad to be specific, especially if you’re looking for a particular “look” at your wedding.
- This allows your guests to be able to assess whether they have to borrow or rent clothes, or if they have the kind of clothes you’re looking for. This saves both time and money on your part and theirs as they can immediately check their closets based on your specifications.
- This also gives you an extra layer of assurance that your specific and explicit instructions are something they could follow, so your wedding’s pictures can be perfect.
- With specificity in mind, here are a few things you should consider before writing down your specific requirements in your invitation:
Don’t forget about the rest of your wedding’s events. Although the ceremony is the most important aspect of the occasion, some weddings have events inside of them, and chances are your wedding will be the same. If there are alternate dress codes for other parts of the wedding – such as if guests will have to change to something else after the ceremony – be sure to let them know beforehand. This is especially important if your events are in places such as a restaurant or a private club for a party after the ceremony.
Don’t forget to make sure items and terms in your dress code are properly defined for the convenience of readers. When you relay specific dress code instructions but don’t elaborate on terms, sometimes people would simply Google the term and find an image of an item of clothing that may slightly resemble something they own, and this doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the one type of clothing you need. If possible, be clear and explicit with the kind of clothing your guests should wear. If you have to familiarize yourself with terms, please do so.
Don’t forget to have people share the dress code. Sometimes, it’s not enough that you have your dress code included in the invitations, it’s also important to have your other close friends, family, and even bridesmaids share and spread the word. Chances are, they’re more familiar with the specifics of the dress code, so they’re the best teachers your guests could have when it comes to choosing the kind of clothes that are appropriate for the occasion.
Don’t forget to use references, such as websites with images that allow you to find inspiration for the dress code. This will allow you to modify your dress code depending on the kinds of clothes you see and imagine your guests in. In fact, you may even include images in your invitation, or refer guests to a website dedicated to what you’ve found already so that your guests have a direct inspiration to look at when they want to buy clothes or check their wardrobes.
Weddings are perhaps magical not because of the ambiance, but primarily because of the dress as well. This is why a lot of couples want their wedding to be “perfect,” and the dress code is one of the guarantees of an aesthetic wedding that is fit for the cameras and the mood. Not everyone who sees a dress code will understand what’s being asked, however, which is why it’s important for you to be able to understand just how you be able to help others comprehend the kind of fashion sense you want them to have before spending time with you on your wedding day.
