DON’Ts for Evening Wear
You can not dress all in white
-You shouldn’t match the bridesmaids in colour
-You shouldn’t match the other mother
-Get a wrist corsage instead of one that will be pinned to your clothing. Corsages can be heavy and pull at your clothing and make it look a bit sloppy and lop-sided.
-If you aren’t used to wearing heels (like back in the day) but are going to wear them at the wedding, bring an extra pair of flats that you can change into for comfort.
