Last weekend, I attended a wedding in VUK banqueting in Chiswick. Love is a beautiful thing when two people comes together to share their union. I was pleased to be part of the guest. To be honest, I have attended many weddings which mostly African but his one was Jamaican and British.
If you know African wedding, you must have at least 2 outfits but for the first time I wore only one outfit to a wedding. I love everything from ceremony to reception.
Let’s talk about my outfit, if I tell you how long I have this dress you will be surprised. This dress is from Jane Norman which I had over 3 years and still fit me. This is the perfect dress for Gala, cocktails, wedding guest even bridesmaids could wear this simple dress. I love all the details of this dress. I look like a Goddess in this cream dress. In fact my outfit was all in gold which is perfect for this summer season. Everything I wore was affordable:

Dress code I do’s…
- Subtlety is best. Opt for simple, pretty or romantic looks rather than edgy or sultry ensembles.
- Simple beauty. Keep hair and makeup natural and pretty. Click here for a complete makeup tutorial on bridal beauty. For my general “wedding appropriate” hair and makeup tips, click here.
Dress code I don’ts…
- The White Rule. This age old tenet says to avoid wearing all white (including ivory), as it should be reserved for the bride. The bottom line here: it’s impolite to upstage the bride so let her be the only one wearing white. Luckily this rule has relaxed a bit. Cream colored clothing and print dresses with white backdrops are usually fine.
- Black. Try not to wear black to early morning/afternoon nuptials.
- Absolutely, positively NO jeans and sexy or revealing clothing. No exceptions.
I hope you found this post useful! Now you can share your newfound “wedding attire” in this post.
