What to Wear to a Wedding


With summer well and truly upon us, wedding season is here, and the fun of planning that outfit for your friend's special day can now commence. Wait, not fun did I hear you say? Well, we might agree - wedding dress codes can be a minefield to negotiate ('How short can I go?'; 'Can I wear white?!) and your options now extend past the dress to include suits and jumpsuits for women.

But besides the usual dos and don'ts, what to wear to a wedding isn't always an easy question to answer. Thankfully, here at Shop Pyramid we have the solutions to your wedding-guest-wardrobe dilemmas:

Civil Ceremony

Typically held in a courthouse or city hall, a civil ceremony was traditionally considered less formal than a 'traditional' wedding.  However, with brides and grooms having the freedom to customize every aspect of their marriage ceremony and wedding reception, you have more flexibility with your wardrobe too.

For civil ceremonies, we at Shop Pyramid recommend fresh and elegant fabrics like silk or frill-line dresses with unique textures or prints. Rodebjer's Silk Lillies collection from their SS16 line, will fit the bill perfectly.

Evening Wedding

Whilst following tradition may be more of an concern for those attending a wedding that lasts the full day to night distance, for evening wedding attendees, you can relax a little and plan your outfit around being dance-floor ready. A cocktail dress is perfect for this scenario:

Informal Wedding

Normally, you would reach for something that little more formal for your go-to wedding outfit.  Yet with more couples saving the pennies by holding an informal ceremony, the occasion now calls for a looks that is a little more laid-back:
