Now that the vaccine is a reality, we are increasingly seeing the return to the longed-for normality, and with it, the return to the wedding celebration without anyone having to miss it due to the reduction in capacity.
When we receive a wedding invitation, the first question that comes to mind is, what should I wear? If you have a wedding in sight, in this post we give you some keys to follow when deciding what to wear to be the perfect guest.
Over the years the wedding protocol has been adapting to new trends and, although the bride and groom give more and more flexibility to the guests, there are some basic rules that we cannot ignore depending on the time of the event.
According to the time chosen by the couple to celebrate their wedding, our dresses will have to follow the first rule to be successful.
If the wedding is in the morning we should wear short cocktail dresses. The perfect length to hit will be short, by the knee or a “midi” cut. In Franc Sarabia's Essential collection you can find perfect designs for these morning’s events. Simple and elegant dresses make a perfect outfit.
The Infallible design is a short crepe dress with a bloated bodice with long sleeves and a belt-effect waist piece. The skirt has a wrap piece and a beautiful feather ornament.
The Infiel desing is a short dress in crepe, with a v-neck and a closed back, three-quarter sleeves with a v-neck and two decorative buttons. Draped sash at the waist. Diagonal band with pleats at the front forming drops at the back. Skirt with wrap-around effect and pleats at waist.
The Intima design is a short dress with a red crepe bodice with an embroidered appliqué at the waist and a V-neckline covered with a piece of nude tulle.
Keep in mind that you should not be overloaded. Try to complete your look with simple accessories or headdresses that do not overshadow the details of the dress and overload the final result.
If our invitation is for an afternoon or evening event, long dresses are allowed. It is in these dresses where we can bet on glitters, sequins and more striking fabrics. Black has been a taboo for a long time, but do not worry if you bet on this elegant color, since you can also wear a perfect black look for the occasion.

Once the design is decided, take note of the details that will make you the best dressed guest at the wedding.
Colours. The only colour to avoid when attending a wedding is white. About the rest of the colours, you can choose the one you like the most, it will always be easier if you choose it according to the season of the year in which the event is held. At Franc Sarabia we custom- make all our dresses, so you can choose the colour in which you want your dress.
Handbags. Small, clutch type. Coordinate it with the colours of the dress. If you go very simple you can play with rhinestones or sequins’ bags. If, on the other hand, your dress already has enough details, bet on a simple bag that does not overload your outfit.
Headdresses. For morning events, bet on elegant headdresses or hats, as long as the dress is not overloaded. For evening events, bet on your loose hair with some “minimal style” detail, giving all the prominence to the dress.
Makeup and hairstyle. Do not paint yourself so much for a morning event; look for a natural look that allows you to have a good face throughout the event. For a night makeup you can play with your eyes to give more intensity to the result, but always without abusing it, remember, “Less is more”. To find the perfect hairstyle, take into account the back of the dress, the headdress or headband that you wear on your head and based on that, decide on the one that suits you and with which you feel more comfortable.
With these tips, you have everything you need to be the perfect guest, but remember the great protagonist of the day is the bride, trying to outshine her is never a good idea.
