Along with spring, the season wedding ceremonies is inevitably approaching. If you are planning to go to a Polish wedding, you are certainly wondering what to wear to look phenomenal, and at the same time do not overshadow the bride and feel great in your outfit. Here are some tips to help you choose the right look!

Cocktail or evening dress?

When choosing a dress, keep in mind the time of day the ceremony will start and its nature. If you are going to a modest wedding in the church, put on a subdued, cocktail dress. If you are invited to an all-night party, you can allow yourself a phenomenal evening dress.

Just not white

In Poland, the white color is reserved for the bride, so if you do not want to upset her, choose a different color for your outfit. However, avoid the black which is associated not with a wedding but with a funeral. However, if you decide to wear black, do not forget about lighting up accessories – shoes, jewelry and a shiny clutch bag. All other colors are allowed, so you can choose the one in which you feel and look the best. This season you will be the most fashionable in ultraviolet or fiery red!

Choose your cut

A dress for a wedding should be chosen according to your shapeIf you’re short, put on a short dress and high heels, if you’re tall – you can wear a longer dress and pumps on lower heels. If your body shape is a pear, a wrap dress with a v-neck accentuating the bust will be appropriate. For women with an hourglass shape, creations from the 1960s are ideal, with a tight top, perfectly fitted waist and a bottom forming the letter A. „Apple” ladies should choose outfits exposing the narrowest part of the body, and thus the ribs, thereby hiding the lack of clearly marked waist. Appropriate for them will be the empire dresses, which form a waist line just under the bust and optically extend the figureIf you have a tomboy shape, emphasize the bust with a neckline with a lace trim or frill. Don’t avoid decorations around the hips – they optically add women’s curves.
