It’s almost officially that time of the year again, mailboxes full of invitations to wedding parties and soirees. Wedding season is in full swing and so finding the perfect outfit to wear is high on our agenda. I especially love wedding season because it’s the perfect excuse to get dressed up, not that I need an excuse to do so, but you get the point. You’re finally able to throw on that perfect number you bought months ago and just never found the right occasion to wear it to.

 

I am in every sense of the word, a sequins kind of girl. Throw embellishments on a paper bag and I shit you not I will buy it. As a wedding guest though, wearing sequins can be a bit of a controversy because nothing screams “see me” quite like the shine sequin embellishments give and you know, “it’s not your day, you want to make sure the bride is the center of attention, not you” blah blah blah. I do however think it depends on the sequin outfit you are wearing and the kind of wedding you are attending. The outfit in this post in my opinion is totally wearable because it’s got the really big black sporty ribbed cuffs and the ribbed waistline band that both help break up the sequins, toning it down enough to make it acceptable.

A sequin ball gown like this or this is only acceptable if it’s a more formal evening wedding. I wore this other sequin outfit to a wedding once and loved every minute in it. It was a formal evening wedding so that made it appropriate. The wedding theme is key when deciding whether or not you want to wear a sequined outfit. As long as it’s a dressy wedding, embellished outfits are totally okay. Just remember it’s always better to be overdressed.
