Whatever your personal style, ensuring that you and your wedding party look and feel amazing is essential.

Here are ten things to consider when planning your wedding wardrobe, each with a focus on how to look stunning in your wedding photos.

Start Early

To begin with, start planning your wedding outfits as soon as you set the date (or at least six months before!). This allows ample time for fittings, alterations, and any unexpected changes. Early planning ensures that you have plenty of options, avoiding last-minute stress and ensuring your outfits look perfect in photos.

Determine a budget for your wedding outfits, including accessories and shoes. This helps in narrowing down your choices and prevents overspending. Remember to factor in costs for your wedding party’s attire as well.

Body Positivity!

Embrace your body type and choose silhouettes that flatter your figure. Remember that confidence is the best accessory!

Consider the Venue and Season

Your wedding venue and the time of year play a crucial role in your outfit choices. For instance, for outdoor weddings, lightweight fabrics and comfortable shoes are ideal. Lace will catch debris and dirt walking around, and crepe is notorious for getting dirty very easily.

For winter weddings, consider warmer materials and layers to keep you cozy.

Reflect Your Personal Style

Equally important is that your wedding outfit should reflect your personal style and make you feel confident. When you feel great in what you’re wearing, it shows in your photos. Whether you prefer a classic, bohemian, modern, or vintage look, choose attire that resonates with you and your partner for stunning, authentic images.

Inclusivity Matters

Ensure that your wardrobe choices are inclusive for all members of your wedding party. By considering a range of styles and fits, you can make everyone feel comfortable and represented. Custom tailoring can help create outfits that suit individual preferences. We love Kirrin Finch for their inclusive looks!

Comfort is Key

Comfort is paramount on your wedding day. Therefore, choose outfits that are not only stylish but also comfortable to wear for extended periods. Ensure that your shoes are broken in and that you can move and dance freely in your attire.

Coordinate with Your Partner

To create a harmonious look, coordinate your outfit with your partner. This doesn’t mean you have to match exactly, but consider complementary colors and styles that look good together in photos. A well-coordinated look can make your couple photos stand out beautifully.

Think About the Wedding Party

Additionally, consider the outfits for your wedding party and ensure they align with the overall theme and color scheme. No, you don’t need to have matching colors. The trend from 2024 onwards is a “prompt” or theme. Example? Sunset colors – and let your party decide what that means to them! The results are awesome! Communicate clearly with your attendants about their preferences and comfort levels.

Plan for Accessories

Accessories can elevate your wedding look. Therefore, plan for jewelry, ties, belts, and other accessories that complement your outfit. Don’t forget practical items like shawls or jackets for colder weather and comfortable footwear for dancing.

Schedule Fittings and Alterations

Lastly, schedule multiple fittings to ensure your outfit fits perfectly. Alterations may be needed as the wedding day approaches, especially if there are any changes in weight or body shape. Ensure your wedding party also has time for necessary adjustments.
