What To Wear To A Night Wedding – Ideas and Tips to Help You

What to wear to a night wedding is a question that I often get asked. Not many couples may choose to have a night wedding but if your friend wants to tie the knot in the evening, then you also have to make sure you are dressed accordingly.

For some essential ideas on what to wear to a nighttime wedding, here are a few that will guarantee you choose your best outfit. Boy or girl, we can help you….

Night Wedding Dress Code

A wedding at night is often a formal party and thus would call for formal dress attire. For women that can be cocktail dresses or long formal dresses, but it is always important to check your wedding invitation for hints about the dress code if not obviously stated.

When it comes to wedding attire for men at evening weddings, they may mean dark suit with tie. If the invitation says black tie then men are expected to be in their tux. When it comes to casual dress code for your wedding party attire, blazer and slacks are good men’s casual wedding attire. Sometimes men have less choice when it comes to what they can wear.



Black is Possible for Night Weddings

Although wearing black for daytime weddings may be something not recommended, black for evening weddings can be an option and in fact, considered elegant and classy by many.

But of course, there are also other equally alluring dark colors such as purple, dark green, navy blue, brown and earth colors.

Choosing among them may depend on what color looks best with your skin tone. Bright colors may not be that attractive or appealing for nighttime weddings, so just reserve them for summer or daytime weddings next time around.

Night Weddings and What to Avoid

Still, there are a few things that you have to avoid when it comes to what to wear to a night wedding. Here are a few things that will help you make the right choice of dress you wear to a night wedding as well as men’s attire for wedding after six o’clock, or in the evening…

-No jeans and T-shirts for men or women. They simply just don’t have a place at weddings.

-Go formal but don’t overdo it and don’t overshadow the wedding entourage. They are the star of the night, so let the limelight be theirs.

-Avoid wearing dresses that are too bright. Reserve them for summer day time weddings.

-Even if the wedding is at nighttime, it is still important to respect the bride and groom by avoiding outfits that are too revealing – especially when it comes to ladies’ attire.

Avoid very big patterns on your tie! They simply are not appealing.
