Is your spring calendar chockful of celebrations this season? Weddings are a fun excuse to celebrate with friends and family, dance the night away, and wear a gorgeous outfit. But having that event on the calendar can also be daunting, leaving you asking, “What do I wear?”

Before frantically shopping for the perfect look, make sure you’ve read the dress code on the invitation and done your homework on the venue. Will you be standing indoors on hardwood floors or walking across grass outdoors? Be sure to decode the dress code to understand the difference between outdoor formal and black tie before you start putting together your outfit and picking out the perfect footwear. Save yourself from getting bits of bark between your toes or sinking into the sand or grass by doing a quick online search of the venue to determine the right shoes to protect both your feet and the ground beneath you. If you aren’t sure just how religious or traditional the ceremony is, it’s best to reach out to the bride or someone in the wedding party to make sure your outfit is appropriate so as not to offend the custom or traditions of the bride or groom’s family.

The best advice is the oldest advice: don’t wear white. Unless you’ve been explicitly told to wear white, it’s best to avoid it so as to not steal the spotlight from the beautiful bride. Let your Dia Stylist know that you’re looking for the perfect outfit for a spring wedding so you can get some gorgeous options in your next box—and check out some of our favorite items for weddings this spring.
