Don’t Wear White 

First and foremost, if there is only one rule you take away from this guide, let it be this one...DON’T WEAR WHITE! This isn’t just a suggestion to consider. This is an iron-clad rule, punishable by death at some weddings! To avoid this major wedding fashion faux pas, check out Vicky and Lucas where they can put you in literally any other color of party dress.

Don’t Clash With The Bridesmaids

A good idea when you receive a wedding invitation is to cultivate your look based on the colors of the invite. If that doesn’t work, try asking a member of the wedding party what the wedding colors are.  This is for two reasons. One, you don't want to be mistaken for a bridesmaid. Two, you don’t want to be the only person in the pictures who is upstaging the bride by wearing bright red when the wedding colors are blue and silver. Try a beautiful party dress in a neutral color (not white) from Vicky and Lucas.

Don’t Be Over Prepared

There may be cultural entertainment, traditional dances, or religious ceremonies that you’ve never experienced before. Don’t worry; just roll with the punches.

Don’t be the “crocs-wearing jeans guy” at the wedding. Find out the dress code, then check out the party dresses available at Vicky and Lucas.
