If you’re planning a wedding, the attire for your wedding party has without a doubt crossed your mind. We truly do understand, as it is quite an important aspect to consider. Knowing what style you want your participants to wear is only a part of the journey. You want to also have in mind how well your attendants will look in the garments you have in mind for them to wear. We thought it would be a good idea to provide a few tips to help you get started. We are sharing a wedding party attire guide.
The first thing you want to be sure you solidify is your wedding style. The attire for the wedding party should match the overall style of the wedding. Be clear about what you expect from your wedding party, especially before you begin to communicate your ideas to them. It could get a little confusing once you involve everyone, as everyone will have some part of their opinion to add to the matter. Being clear on your wedding style will help guide your choices. Making sure the attire for the wedding party coordinates with your attire, as well as your wedding style creates a cohesive look for the entire wedding.
Before you can address the style of dress or tux for your wedding party participants, you want to choose the wedding colors. This will also help with your choices for the wedding party attire. Of course we are sure you know your color palette. But incorporating those colors into the wedding party outfits can be simple or complex. Ask yourself if you want them all to wear the same color and style, or if you want them to have some freedom in their choices. If you decide to give them freedom, be sure you provide guidelines and inspiration for what you want to help them choose.
Another thing you want to be sure you consider is the season. The time of year and location of the wedding plays a huge role in the attire choices. With summer weddings, you want to consider lighter fabrics. For more formal weddings, you want a little bit of a heavier material. Start shopping early to give your wedding party plenty of time to shop. Set a deadline for all of the attire needs to be purchased and complete.
These steps are a tried-and-true method for selecting attire for your wedding party. What we have shared should have you well on your way to having the best possible experience with selecting the perfect attire for your wedding party.
Until next time…
be sweet & happy planning!
