7 Common Wedding Fashion Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

Did you know that 2.6 million weddings were planned in 2022, probably a surge after all the weddings that were stalled during the COVID pandemic years? This was the highest number of weddings planned since 1984, which is saying quite a bit.

Are you preparing for a wedding soon and deciding on what to wear? No matter if you are the groom or the bride, everyone nowadays wants to avoid all wedding fashion mistakes, so their wedding pictures can turn out impeccably gorgeous.

Keep reading so you can stay informed about these fashion mistakes and avoid them completely.

1. Don’t Forget to Complement Each Other

You are starting a life together and soon you will be husband and wife doing everything together. And that starts now, with your wedding suits and dresses.

Make sure to pick wedding outfits that complement each other. The groom needs to consult with the bride before picking an offhand color or a funky style, to make sure it matches her dress design.

The same applies to the bride. She shouldn’t go overly formal with her dress if the groom is going casual.

Both of you also need to make sure to pick the location before you choose your outfits, because the location will, in a lot of cases, dictate what you will wear.

For example, if you are going to hold a wedding at a beach location, then you will want your wedding outfits to be extremely casual. If you are holding it at a church or a fancy country club, then you will want to go formal.

2. Don’t Overdo It With the Accessories

This applies to both the groom and the bride, although the bride will have to pay more attention to this. You don’t want your accessories to overshadow or overwhelm your wedding outfit, which they easily can.

You have probably spent a lot of time fretting over and going over many wedding outfit ideas before landing on the perfect one. So make sure that you keep the spotlight on your outfit, rather than on anything else.

Choose your accessories with care, and only wear them if they mean something to you, or you feel like you can’t go without them.

Your hair, makeup, dress, and shoes should be more than enough to make an impression. So don’t worry about that.

Also, for the groom, make sure that you aren’t carrying anything in your pocket, except a bit of cash to tip the servers and other staff. Your best man should be carrying the women’s and mens wedding bands and anything else you might need.

3. Don’t Go to a Tanning Booth a Day Before Your Wedding

This is a common mistake that a lot of brides and grooms end up making. You don’t want to ruin all your wedding photos because you have strange tan lines or a bad spray tan from a flubbed tanning job.

Even if wedding fashion trends dictate that you are better off with a nice tan for your wedding pictures, don’t take the chance. It’s not worth it.

4. Don’t Miss Testing Your Makeup Artist or Hair Person Beforehand

This tip might seem like a lot of work and perhaps you are already stymied by time. But it’s a good idea to test your hair and makeup artist before your wedding day, at least once. This way you can see what your dress looks like with the makeup and if you wish to make any changes.

It’s easier to do this a few days before the wedding than on the wedding day itself when time is going to be scarce, and your day is packed to the gills.

5. Don’t Get a Dress or Suit One Size Down

Yes, you have great hopes that you will lose ten or fifteen pounds before your wedding day because you are on this killer diet or you hired a personal trainer. Maybe you will, or maybe you won’t.

But it’s easier to tighten up a dress with safety pins than to loosen it up. So don’t make this common wedding fashion mistake. Buy a dress that fits you well in your current size rather than one that’s a size or two down.

6. Don’t Get Stuck in a Box When It Comes to Dress Shopping

When you go dress shopping, you might have a wedding attire budget that you are running by. Or you might have a particular dress style in mind that you wish to purchase.

But don’t get stuck in this kind of narrow thinking. If you keep your mind and options open, you could end up with a perfect dress or suit which is completely not what you were planning to get at first. But as long as you have your dress, who cares how you got there?

7. Don’t Wear Heels or Uncomfortable Shoes on the Wedding Day

No matter how comfortable you are with heels in your daily life, you do not want to test this out on your wedding day. Not only will you be exhausted from the early start to the day, but you are going to be spending a lot of your time on your feet. That can get painful very fast, so make sure to choose comfortable, but gorgeous shoes for your wedding day.

The same thing applies to the groom as well, although it’s not as dire, as they probably won’t be wearing 6-inch stiletto heels.
