Guest outfits for the entire guestlist

So, you’re heading to a wedding and you want to look good. Really good. Whether you are clueless or know nothing about wedding dress codes, here are some simple wedding guest outfit ideas that might help you with your conundrum! Good luck.

 

General wedding guest outfits:

For the lads:  If in doubt, put a suit on. It really is that simple! Rock a gorgeous suit tailored to fit you and you’ll look amazing instantly. If it’s too hot, take off your jacket once the formalities are over if you deem it appropriate. And PLEASE remember appropriate socks. They can break an outfit.

For the ladies:   For most weddings, as a wedding guest, you should aim for elegant sophistication. Depending on the dress code, you may have to wear a long dress like the one below. Go for slightly overdressed rather than too casual, and avoid white/ivory/cream at all costs. No super short hemlines or anything too tight to dance in- you want to enjoy yourself!

 

Something a little more casual:

If it’s a casual or cocktail affair, you can afford to buy a dress that isn’t floor length or a dress shirt and pants or bow tie. For the guys, you could even play around with prints and a little colour if you see it fit:

 

Father of the bride and father of the groom outfits:

Ideally, dad will have left his moccasins at home and look dapper on your wedding day. He would put on his tie, and get his favourite dress shirt on with a blazer and slacks. Maybe even throw in a pocket square on boutonniere so he is even more on fleek!

Farm wedding inspiration from real newlyweds

Dreaming of hosting your big day in the great outdoors? Here’s 6 farm weddings (special country touches and all) featured in our Real Weddings section that’ll see your creativity blossom!

 

Kim and Matt

“Our wedding was on a beautiful country farm, complete with dam, forest, and rolling green hills. It was exquisite and the weather was senational,” says Kim.

Kim and Matt opted for a modern chic theme with decor pieces to match. “Geometric shapes, copper, test tube vases and filament globes were chosen to suit my scientific and engineer husband. Coupled with a huge variety of pretty flowers, candles, and home-designed floral stationery to suit my girly side,” Kim explains.

 

Kertu and Dalton

This couple put their creative skills to the test producing rustic-style perfect on the private property at Howes Valley – called Settler’s Rest.

Kertu and Dalton built their own wedding venue, and it’s now open for bookings for others to share their beautiful wedding experience!

 

Sarah and Drew

Sarah and Drew rang in their new marriage at their teepee wedding on a private homestead at Drummong in central Victoria.

“We spent the whole weekend at the property so that gave us a chance to reflect and relax,” says Drew.

Survive a summer wedding

Are you currently planning a summer wedding? Sure, you might not run the same risk of rain that a winter wedding would, but that doesn’t mean the weather will be pleasant all round. Here’s what you need to survive an Australian summer wedding.

 

Handkerchief

I don’t know about you, but when I’ve had the “pleasure” of sitting outside on a 35℃ day, my upper lip sweats LIKE CRAZY. Mix the heat with your nerves, and not only will you have a sweaty upper lip, but also your temples, underarms, and the back of your neck. Wipe that sh*t up!

 

Extra makeup

With all that sweating, you might actually sweat your face makeup off. Bring extra makeup in an emergency kit to touch up if need to.

 

Perfume

Two words: You’ll stink. Bring extra perfume and deodorant.

 

Water

There’s a high chance of dehydration on your wedding day. Why? Because you’ll probably have been drinking champagne since 6am, barely eaten anything, and the heat is drying you up like a pickle left out in the sun. Drink up, folks!

 

Fans

Please supply your guests with paper fans to cool themselves down. You might be so immersed in your ceremony not to care about the heat, but I assure you – your family and friends care! Some guests might even decide to boycott your wedding entirely if it’s outside on a day that’s simply too hot, and if you have made no attempt to accommodate or protect them

 

Airconditioner

Ensure your venues and wedding transport have airconditioner before you book your summer wedding with them. A hot indoor venue is enough to send people home early, and nobody wants to open the windows of their Rolls Royce on the way to the ceremony – HELLO windswept hair?! Not cute.

 

Shade

If you do decide on an outdoor ceremony venue in the height of summer, make sure you choose an area beneath trees or with ample shade. Do your family and friends a justice and protect them from severe sun burn or heat stroke. They’ll thank you for it and won’t always remember your wedding as “the one that gave Uncle James third degree burns”.
