How to Dress for a Friend’s Wedding

Did you just open your inbox to find out you have been invited to a wedding? Is one of your dearest friends getting married soon? Then, of course, the first question that pops into your head is what am I wearing? At Full Figure Fashions, we do not only sell plus size women’s clothes for your everyday life, but we also have a full section of pieces for both the bride and her guests.
Our plus size consignment store offers you many options for you to look sleek for your friend’s big day. You only need to keep in mind our experts’ recommendations for this kind of event:

White Is a No-No unless Specified by the Couple
Even if it seems obvious, this is the number one rule when attending a wedding. The only exception is if the party has an all-white dress code specified in the invitation. Otherwise, leave white and ivory for another time, as you don’t want to overshadow the bride. There are many trendy plus size clothing options for you like coloured lace, sequins, and vibrant colors combinations.

Formal or Casual?
Your attire to the event will definitely depend on the nature of the wedding. Daytime weddings are always more relaxed, so you can still go for a midi length dress or a print jumpsuit. Flirty florals and natural fabrics are not out of the question either, especially if the wedding is outdoors. On the other hand, evening weddings let you experiment with more luxurious fabrics and fun details like sequins. If you are not into dresses, you can opt for another sexy plus size clothing option: the female tuxedo.

What about Accessories?
A cute outfit is never complete without them! We recommend you to use delicate accessories for the occasion and a small bag where you can fit all the necessary goodies: makeup kit, cell phone, and ID. And let’s not forget about shoes! Pick a beautiful but comfy pair of heels so you can move and dance without problems. In our plus size consignment store, you will find all the accessories you need to complete your perfect wedding look.

Keep in Mind…
If the wedding has a religious ceremony, make sure your outfit is appropriate! For example, if you are wearing a sleeveless dress, you may need to cover your shoulders. At Full Figure Fashions, we suggest covering them with a shawl.
