About Wedding Maxi Dress
It is an age-old dilemma: what do you wear to a wedding? If you are the bride, the answer is easy. But every other woman attending must go through a mental checklist: no white; no miniskirts; no cleavage; nothing see through; no patterns which will look odd in photos; nothing that will make you too warm; nothing that will make you too cold; something you will wear again.
Many women will dismiss the idea of wearing a maxi dress to a wedding on the grounds that a long dress is too bridal. But in recent years, wedding maxi dresses have become the go-to choice for fashionistas ? paired with a fur jacket or gilet in winter, and with strappy sandals and loose hair in the summer.
A good maxi dress will hide a multitude of sins ? from pale legs to round tums. You can even get away with wearing flat shoes under the hem, allowing you to hit the dance floor blister free. The best thing about a maxi dress is that they can be worn time and time again ? as a cover up on the beach; for holiday cocktails or simply at the next wedding or formal function!
Maxi dresses can even be substituted for traditional bridesmaid?s dresses, and may work out cheaper than the versions you?ll find in bridal boutiques. Look for dresses made from good quality material which will not appear shiny or transparent in photographs, and find a local dressmaker who will alter them to fit each bridesmaid.
