WHAT TO WEAR TO A WEDDING DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON: GUIDE TO WOMEN REGULAR AND PLUS-SIZE PARTY WEAR.

Happy holiday! So, it’s the busiest and most festive time of the year. While there are some who would enjoy this time to sit on the couch watching all the Christmas movies, there are others who are just too busy and  stressed. Though this Season can be stressful for most, it can also be the most romantic and enchanting season to celebrate a union.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll know that finding the perfect outfit can be a challenge. I like to give myself a lot of choice to pick. That’s why, I have put below a number of choices from you to pick from. But before heading straight to various wardrobe choices, I made two wardrobe rules to follow before attending a wedding.

SOME WEDDING RULES:

  • 1. Be sure to speak with the bride about the colors that are appropriate for her wedding:

Some bride would tell their guest to not wear a certain color such as white or red, because it tends to take away the attention from the bride.

  • 2. Be considerate. Wear something appropriate for the wedding:

Never ever, wear jeans, or flip-flops to someone’s wedding. C’mon put a little effort to your wardrobe. To me personally, I consider it rude when someone shows up at a wedding that another person have spent so much time and money planning, with clothes that they would wear to a barbecue or to the grocery store. Though most may say that they never intended to be disrespectful or inconsiderate, dressing with very little effort can still show disrespect and lack of consideration to the bride and to the groom. It’s not fair to them.

WITHOUT FURTHER A DUE…

 

DRESS FOR THE MORE TRADITIONAL PLUS-SIZE LADIES

Item: Chi Chi Blush Pink floral Lace Evelina Dress

Price: 84.99 Euro ($96.88)

Size: 14-24

Only one left

I know that this particular order is almost sold out. But I decided to show you this dress  to give you an idea on what to wear to this event. What I love about this Evelina dress is the fact that you can use this for both seasons, the Winter and the Spring wedding without having to keep buying new dresses. Unless you chose to.

Wear this outfit with some blush, silver, or golden open-toe sandals. I wouldn’t recommend wearing this with black or any leggings at all. But if it’s too cold where you live, then wear some nude (as close to your skin color as possible) leggings, or wear them with a long coat (knee or ankle-length)

 

DRESS FOR THE FASHION FORWARD

Item: Black Long Sleeve Faux Pearl Embellished Maxi Dress

Where to find: Rosewe

Price: $46.32

Size: M-2XL

Great to wear to wedding during the holiday, especially if you’re planning to attend a formal wedding. What I love about this dress is that It could be worn throughout the year and on different formal events. It’s definitely a good investment.

My advice for this dress is to be careful when accessorizing. You don’t want to have on too much just because the dress has so many pearls already. And you don’t want to not wear any accessories only because it may make your overall look incomplete.

Wear this with black sandals and a long coat ( be sure to wear the coat on you shoulders like a cape. It’s more formal).

 

DRESS FOR THE MOST DARING AND BOLD PLUS-SIZE LADIES

Item: Lovedrobe Black-Gold lace skater Dress

Where to find: Yoursclothing

Size: 14-30 (USA size)

Other size options are available on site.

The gold color on this dress makes it a very appropriate outfit to wear to a wedding during the holiday season. The wide skirt of this dress is also an ideal choice for women with an apple shaped body who are looking for balance and curves to their lower body.

This dress would be perfect to wear with black sandals and a long coat.

 

PERFECT DRESS FOR FASHIONISTAS

 

Item: Yellow One Sleeve Front Slit Maxi Dress

Where to find: Rosewe

Price: $33.60

Size: M-2XL

This dress is for those who have passion for fashion, are daring, and those who loves the non-traditional things.

My advice with this dress is to wear your hair up in order to show case the style of the dress, wear bold lips with burgundy lipsticks rather than bright dress (The dress is already bright. Wearing a wine, burgundy color can help tone it down).

As for the accessories, I would say, wear this dress with silver (rather than gold) earrings, bag (small), sandals.

“Since I’m not sure of the thickness of this dress, I would recommend wearing them with black undergarments, or if you have extra skin, then wear this dress with a shape wear for a cleaner look”.

 

FORMAL GOWN FOR PLUS-SIZE WOMEN

Item: Elegant Dress Set-Mulberry

Where to find: CoEdition

Price: $149

Size: 14-22

This purple elegant dress is an ideal choice for any women who plan to attend a formal event. One thing I love about the dress is that it can be worn in events other than a wedding throughout the year such as the prom or a homecoming dance.

I would recommend anyone to wear this dress with some silver sandals or/earrings.

 

DRESS FOR THE UPSCALE LADIES

Item: Lavinia Stretch Lace Dress

Where to find: Jacqui E

Price: $149.95

Size: S-XL

This black stretched dress is a great choice for the more upscale women who prefer the simple yet elegant and professional like styles.

You can wear this dress with your hair up or down depending on the length and thickness of your hair. You can also wear with bold dark lips or no bold lips at all with this dress.

Some solid black sandals and long coat would go great with it

      I appreciate it Erick, you’re so right. It’s insulting especially when they are not directly invited by bride or the groom. I also appreciate you for sharing the post on your facebook account. Blessing

    When he’s not wearing his Bostons, Williams puts on this clog-sandal hybrid — which he’ll wear with socks, or in hot weather as an alternative to sandals (because he doesn’t like showing his toes). He’s not alone: Arnold also mentioned less foot maintenance as a benefit of wearing clogs.
