Black being the color of curse & hatred and White being the color of the bride, must be dropped while attending a wedding.
3. Do not wear jeans
No matter how casual the wedding theme is, you must not wear jeans to a wedding as it will reflect your careless and too lazy nature towards traditional functions. If the theme is casual, grab a less formal wedding attire that includes maxi dresses, midis but not denims.
4. Don’t think about over-the-top attire
You might have bold clothes in your wardrobe and the coming wedding might seem a golden opportunity to showcase your bold attire but hold on! A wedding is more about the bride and less about you and your outfit. Don’t go bold as it may divert some attention to you but in a negative way.
5. Consider the weather
