In my previous post, I stated vividly that Cocktail dresses can be worn to any occasion including weddings and work.
In this post, i would be giving you different styles to wear a cocktail dress to an Engagement party, Bridal shower, Spinster night or White Wedding. Most times, women prefer to wear a knee length cocktail dress to a wedding.
Cocktail dress is arguably the leader of all wedding dress codes and when it comes to deciding what style or design to wear, it can get cumbersome.
If you get an invite to a wedding with the cocktail attire as Dress Code, there are a lot of things to consider. Like, is the wedding slated for Autumn, Spring, Winter or Summer. If it is in the Spring or Summer, bright colours, playful prints and pastel shades are best; while for Winter and Autumn, deep jewel tones and metallic fabrics are gorgeous.
Secondly, the type of venue is necessary. Is it an outdoor or indoor wedding? For the former, lighter and floatier fabrics like cotton, jersey, or chiffon are best. If it is the latter, elegant fabrics like satin, velvet, and taffeta are perfectly best.
Lastly, the time of the day is to be considered – is it in the Morning or early/late afternoon? For mornings, a dress that is more casual is appropriate while for afternoon/evening, a formal elegant style is best.
Bearing this in mind, here are few styles for Cocktail dresses that a bride to be can choose for her bridesmaids and for you to wear as a guest to a wedding ceremony.
