What To Wear To The 3 Kinds Of Weddings You’ll Be Invited To This Season

Love is in the air… Here’s how to look amazing at any kind of wedding.



Wedding season is here! If you’re struggling with what to wear as friends and family get hitched all around you, we’ve got you covered. In today’s age, many of the traditions and formalities often associated with weddings are becoming increasingly outdated. From non-conventional locations to alternatives to the traditional white dress, there are less stringent rules governing what you can and can’t wear to this formal affair. Of course, some rules still apply – like avoiding a white dress to not going casual. However, you needn’t break the bank to look on-point. From beach weddings, ballroom affairs to destination weddings, here are three looks that you can shop under AED 1 600 to get you ready for the big day.

Need more inspiration? Here are 5 more wedding looks guaranteed to turn heads.

1. THE BEACH WEDDING

Beach weddings have grown in popularity over the last decade or so, as couples increasingly opt for a more relaxed and intimate affair. As such, these tend to be less formal events than their more-traditional counterparts. This will give you a little leeway in what to wear, allowing you to opt for something slightly more laid-back than is usual at a wedding. However, be warned that this does not mean casual goes. Opt for light colours, breezy fabrics and open-toe sandals and remember to check the weather forecast to prepare for all eventualities.

2. THE BALLROOM WEDDING

Still one of the most popular types, the ballroom wedding is a very traditional affair, and guests will be expected to dress to the nines. If you want to break the mould while still looking the part, ditch the dress and go for trousers. With a traditional two-piece worn by a growing number of brides themselves, female guests are following suit (pun intended). Even model Cara Delevingne was snapped in a tuxedo and top hat at Prince Eugenie’s wedding last year. Following in her footsteps, here is a sharp, tailored, wedding-ready look.
