Are you attending a wedding this season? I am lucky enough to be invited to two this Summer. One is this weekend for my cousin Jill. I am very excited yet a bit stressed about getting my outfit together. It’s an evening wedding and so, a bit fancier than the usual. After getting my two boys and husband’s outfit’s together, I am left with no time to think of myself. Yikes! I trolled the internet for advice or images on what to wear and I tell you, there’s not much out there. It’s every guest for himself and your own instincts. I think there was a cute column in Allure a while back titled: classy, crassy or trashy. For weddings, you should always try to go classy.

Now remember go classy, not crassy or trashy. This means no white or even close to it. Not too much skin. This is not your high school reunion. If you would wear your dress to go out in Vegas, then maybe you need to rethink your choice.
Do only one or two sparkly accessories for evenings only and no pantyhose unless you are close to the Queens age. You need a wrap or cardigan for the church and cooler nights and try to bring a small evening bag. Clutches are perfect. I really like this Drew box clutch from Banana Republic and it does in a cream color too.
Men, let’s see some effort!! You need to wear a tie with a jacket. Yes, you do. Sorry I’ve been to too many California weddings where the men don’t. They just look scrappy. Do you know how handsome you look dressed up? I’m training my men early. Exhibit A:
