5 Tips for Dressing for a Southern Wedding

Fall wedding season is in full swing. If you are celebrating the nuptials of your loved ones and want to look good while doing it, we have the tips you need today. With help from the Southern Fashion expert, Bettina Benson, Owner of Chloe Kristyn,  we have 5 Tips for Dressing for a Southern Wedding.  Get inspired to plan out your outfits for your next southern wedding and be sure to share your outfit images on social media using the hashtag #blacksouthernbelle


5 Tips for Dressing for a Southern Wedding
According to Chloe “When planning your attire for a wedding always consider the time of day. For an afternoon wedding, structured sheaths or the always figure flattering fit and flare dresses are appropriate. Have fun with a bold floral print or a dress with tasteful embellishments.”
An evening ballroom wedding will require cocktail attire at minimum. If black tie is specified, a formal floor length gown is most appropriate.
If you’re like me, you always find yourself freezing at some point during the wedding reception. A shawl is the perfect traditional choice; however, consider a bolero or a satin/silk kimono as an alternative.
Yes, you can wear black, but remember that your wardrobe should reflect that this is a celebratory event. I would not recommend black for afternoon weddings. Choose black dresses with feminine details such as flounces or ruffles. Black dresses constructed with lace are also a fabulous and appropriate option.
Leave the large totes and casual handbags at home. Opt for a clutch or small top handle bag. As a mom, I know you’re going to want to have your cell phone close by so you can check on the kids; there are some fabulous special occasion appropriate clutches out there that have room for all of your essentials, including your cell phone.
