The Best Dresses to Wear to Your Friends Wedding
There are many unwritten rules you should follow when you’re attending a wedding, especially if it’s your close friend’s wedding! For starters, you should avoid wearing white at all costs – this is the very basic of wedding etiquette., Wearing white at a wedding as a guest is a big no no, unless the bride and groom have specifically asked their guests to do so.
As well as not wearing white, you should also try and avoid wearing red or black… There are quite a lot of superstitions attached to these colours – red is seen as being too risque and seductive (we think you can get away with that in this century, though), and black is seen as being too funeral-y.
With these superstitions in mind, Honor Gold have put together a list of our favourite dresses that would be perfect for your friend’s summer wedding.
The Perfect Pencil Dress
The perfect dress for a spring wedding, the Olivia Coral Pencil Hem Midi Dress offers a beautiful silhouette as it is designed to showcase your curves. In a soft coral colour, the Olivia compromises a Pencil Hem finish, with off the shoulder sleeves and delicate shoulder straps.
