What To Wear To A Wedding
For Her 
  • If the wedding is during daytime and an informal one, a short dress or suit would be perfect.
  • Cocktail dress is best suited for an evening wedding, which is informal in nature.
  • If the wedding is a formal affair and is in the evening, long or dressy short cocktail dress, with beading, glam accessories or wrap, would do the trick.
  • It is generally advised to avoid wearing white, as the bride will be wearing it too. Choose from the gamut of colors and select the one that best suits your personality.
  • If the party is during the day, black or sequins dress should be avoided.
  • If you are wearing the same color as the bridesmaids or mothers, don't bother. You may add to the unknowingly formed color theme.
  • Wear something that enhances your personality. Since wedding is a sanctimonious affair, club wear or overtly sexy clothing is a big No-No.
  • Your dress should match your gloves and the rest of the accessories. However, do not go out to wear opera-length gloves, with sleeveless or strapless gowns.
  • If the nature of the wedding is not mentioned in the invite, choose a dress which would suit the mood of the wedding. A pastel dress or a floral print dress is best suited for daytime and a black dress for the evening. 
For Him 
  • If the wedding is during daytime and an informal affair, shirt and pant are the best suited for the affair.   
  • If the party is at the evening and is informal in nature, a suit would best complement the nature of the party.
  • Tuxedo or dark suits work best in case of a wedding that is held in the evening and is formal in nature. Remember, even if the wedding event is in the daytime and is formal, a tuxedo would still seem out of place.
  • A dark suit would gel with the wedding party which is in the evening.
  • If nothing is mentioned in the invitation card, choose attire that is versatile. A dark suit and conservative tie is just the right deal for any event.
