Be My Guest


You’ve been invited to witness the union of your friends and family … amazing, right? After Saving-the-Date for an upcoming wedding, the next question is: what on Earth will you wear? We understand the stress of figuring out what is appropriate – something that’s dressy enough but doesn’t upstage the bride, and when you add seasonal restraints on attire, it can be even trickier. Here, we show you two dresses that can cover all four seasons, giving you more bang-for-your-buck during a whole year of wedding celebrations.

Macy’s – Jacket $425, Pants $175

If you’re going to face the chilly weather, you should certainly have fun and secretly steal the show with a fun suit. This navy camouflage is subtle enough to still be appropriate, yet interesting enough to be a conversation starter. To avoid going over-the-top, keep all other details very basic. White shirt, black tie and black shoes will properly complete this look.

What NOT to wear during any season:

White. There should be only one bride per wedding, so opt for color instead of all white or all black.
Mini-skirts, glitter, or spandex.
Shorts. Gentlemen, choose light-weight cotton or linen dress pants to beat the heat, instead.
