going to the afters of a wedding to-morrow night and really cannot figure out what myself and my friedns should be wearing. We have not been to the afters of a wedding in years TBH and would like to not have to go out and buy something especially for it. Would it be alright to wear a nice dress or does looking like one of the main wedding guests count as a serious no no?
Thanks a mil,
I'd dress up nice for it. I can't stand it when I see after's guests turning up in jeans or looking like they're just going to the pub for a night out
Ya agree with easytiger, Jeans would be a definate no. I would probably wear a skirt and strappy top or nice trousers with a halter neck or corset type top thingy, some of the dresses can be a bit too "weddingy" IMO..
I agree with easytiger - dress up nicely. You don;t need a hat or hairpiece, but you should otherwise be dressed as if you were at the full wedding. Any nice outfit in other words!
Agree with teh girls. Jeans a definite no no.
How about a dressy pair of trousers and a nice top. Nothing to OTT.
It wouldn't have bothered me if they were wearing jeans, once they weren't completely scruffy!
I quite honestly have no recollection of what any of our afters guests turned up in!!!
If you were a bloke I'd be saying suit if you're going to the whole day, but trousers and shirt (with jacket preferred) if going to the afters. I don't think it's necessary to dress as you would for the full day.
guess it depends on how well u know the couple. i'd dress smart casual ifkwim. not as dressy as full day.
I would wear a dress to the afters or else a nice skirt and top.
Thanks girls and guy for the help. Only logging on now to get your feedback and you have put my mind at ease.
