Nuptial Rights

By Beacon Staff

Getting married this year? Well, so are 10 of my other friends. Yes, I have been invited to 10 weddings between July through November. So what can a girl possibly do? There is no way I am buying 10 dresses – I still have to pay off college. Luckily, all of the weddings are in the same semi-formal category. If you are in a similar predicament, I recommend you buy two or three dresses, at least one print and one solid that are versatile and can look different when accessories are changed.

If your attending an outdoor wedding lightweight fabrics like cotton or linen are perfect. If the wedding takes you into the evening, bring a shawl that accents the colors in your dress, wear a smokey eye, and an embellished sandal. This will definitely dress up your look. Going to a formal wedding? A one shoulder cocktail dress with chandelier earrings is classic and beautiful!

For you men out there, it is perfectly fine wear a light-colored suit in khaki or gray, even slacks and dress shirt depending on the location. Give your suit some edge with a skinny tie or a pocket square. This will definitely make your look more special!
