What to wear, what to wear? Wedding season has begun!

What to wear to a wedding

The wedding season is upon us and with it come loads of engagement parties, bridal showers and wedding receptions. It’s hard to keep up with all these formal occasions for both our social lives and our closets! Especially when each of these occasions requires a different kind of outfit depending on the time of day, venue and formality of the event! We follow a simple set of rules when choosing our outfits:

  1. No White – No matter how good it looks on you, it’s the bride’s special day/time and you don’t want to be mistaken for the bride or steal any of her thunder. Even when it’s not the actual wedding, like an engagement party, there is a high chance the bride will wear white, so it’s better to avoid the color all together.  
  2. No Sequin – Unless you’re heading to a bachelorette party at a club, sequin is a big “no-no”! It will make you look really flashy and overdressed.
  3. No Jeans/Casual wear– Even if you’re going to an informal event, avoid being too casual. Wearing a feminine sundress will always be the winning option over a pair of jeans and t-shirt.
  4. No Short dresses to a Wedding –  Although wearing a cute short dress to an engagement party is totally appropriate,  weddings are a special occasion! Day time and evening weddings require you to look more or less formal. Avoid anything that will make you look too sexy! You want to look elegant and be respectful to the wedding party, so the length of your dress should be appropriate, meaning just above the knee or a maxi.

A simple LBD will normally do the job for any formal occasion, and never seems to disappoint when you’re in a real ‘pickle’ and haven’t found a dress in time.  If you have some time, and want a cute summer dress, then shopping online is the best way to find the right style in a hassle free way! It’s fast, comfortable and there are lot’s of options to choose from! We’ve collected a few great options from our on-line store for every wedding occasion!

Colours, Florals and Flirty skirts are ideal for a daytime party! But remember if you opt for a short hemline, make sure the top part of the dress is covered.  Here are some great styles from Pavlyn.com that we think are perfect!

What to wear to: A Spring Bridal Shower

10 Apr

Zara Dress with black leather jacket

Over the past weekend, I was invited to a bridal shower for one of my girlfriends. Let me tell you, I haven’t been to many of these things before, so finding the perfect outfit proved somewhat of a tricky task.  There are so many rules! You shouldn’t really wear white (or even cream)…you don’t want to overdress…you don’t want to underdress – the outfit has to be…. just right! And seeing that we’ve been having some funny weather in Toronto, it wasn’t easy! After a long debate with my closet, I settled on this navy blue Zara dress, with a halter top and A-line skirt. I love how feminine it looks, especially with the pleats in the skirt – its perfect for a bridal shower or even a Sunday Brunch. Contrasting the feminine side of my outfit is my leather biker jacket – Love the way it looks with the skirt.
