In honor of our Life Is a Party YouTube episode on “What to Wear” with Mason Hosker, I’m giving you a little Monday roundup of photos showing what seem to be some trends in what our wedding guests are wearing.  Above- this is from our Newport, RI wedding, and while it was a summertime wedding, long dresses (in an array of colors from darker to brighter) were definitely the big trend here as well as tuxes for the men.

Yes, that is Mark Paul Gosslear above… He and wife attended a December brunch wedding at Ford Plantation of ours. I think this is a great example of fitting for the type of celebration and time of day. He in a gray suit (but not too dark) and monochromatic tie make it slightly more formal for the occasion but not overdressed. Her long and pop of bright are great for an elegant Southern garden wedding during the morning.

These shots are from three separate weddings, in three separate locations (Greenville, SC Charleston, SC, and Aspen, CO), and three different times of year (March, August, November) and what is the main thing you see?  RED… Red is versatile, looks great on many different skin tones and body types, and works day into evening.

I love these two examples of the Mothers to show you.. In the first one, both wear long dresses in the same fabric but in different colors that work together  (the mother of the bride wearing gold is great because it was an accent color used in the wedding design). In the second photo, again, both moms wear long dresses in colors that work together. The mother of the bride’s dress has lace accents that compliment her daughter’s gown. I love how these work together so that photos come out lovely!

At the end of the day, there are a few rules to follow when dressing for an event- stay tuned to tomorrow’s post where you will see my tips/rules… But, take into account the location of the wedding, what type of wedding it is, and when it is happening to help guide you…

Working with our clients in full service planing and design often means helping guide them on what to wear.  This can mean the clients and families themselves, or how to inform guests on what to wear according to the type of party the clients are having. With help from local Charleston tastemaker and designer, Danielle Hosker of Mason Hosker, we’ve got a fashion show of what to wear… For the full episode head over to our YouTube channel.
