* Church Wedding: a short, tea length, or long dress depending on the time & formality of the wedding. If you are wearing a strapless or halter style dress a wrap or shawl is a necessity to cover your shoulders.


~~Tips~~

Do not wear white. You do not want to wear anything that will detract from the bride. This is her moment to be in the spotlight and you do not want to outshine her.

Do not worry about wearing the same colors as the bridesmaids or mothers of the bride and groom.

Do wear an appropiate style of dress. Clubwear, see-thru, or plunge necklines do not belong at weddings. If you have to ask if a style of dress is inappropiate then you probably should not wear it.

Dress up more for weddings after 6:00pm. To add glam use rhinestone or pearl trimmed accessories.

Keep hairdos under control with soft updos or hair barrettes.

Do not wear hosiery or heavy make up to summer weddings or you run the risk of melting.
