The wedding season is upon us,as women we want to look fabulous at wedding. Apart from enjoying the wedding, some of us have our mini fashion show where we go to see to see the fashion at the wedding. For one to look good at a wedding, they have to plan their outfit and budget for it. Hence it is important for every fashionista to be abreast with the checklist that comes with wedding outfit planning.
1. The shoes
Once you pick out shoe, you can then build an outfit going up. Suppose you pick a platform shoe, it means you will have to show off your gorgeous shoes, so you will have to pick a short dress, or midi dress. If you are to opt for a dress it will have to be a high low dress so that you can show off your shoes. Jumpsuits are also an option with the platform sky scrapper shoes, they are so fashion forward, but do not opt for cotton jumpsuits, they are not formal enough; rather opt for material, that is a bit heavier. If you pick sandals also show them off, show off those gorgeous legs with a short dress and a glamorous clutch bag.
TIP: Pick a comfortable shoe that you will be able to wear all day.

2. The Dress
Once you have decided on the shoe, it will be easier to pick the dress. If you picked a gold shoe, you will have to wear a white or green or orange or red dress. These colors compliment gold and they look exquisite and they will make you look like royalty. If you opt for silver, you will have to opt for a plum or purple or lilac or cobalt blue dress. The silver shoe will tone down the dark colors. If you are a fashionista and you go with a bright color shoe, try subtle colors like beige, nude or black. With these neutral colors you can match the shoes and the accessories so as to bring all the attention to the shoes.
TIP: Do not wear the decor colors; you are not part of the bridal party or the decor

3. Hair and make up
You should know what exactly suits you the most. If you have a round face opt for shorter hairstyle like Chanel. If you have a heart shaped face, opt for longer hairstyle. You can opt for your Brazilian weave or a hairstyle that will complement your look. You should also decide where you want a hairstyle with curls that you will have to comb everyday or one that you will not have to comb every day. Go with minimalist, makeup and never apply face powder without applying you foundation. Go with the red lip if you are daring or a neutral lip gloss.
If you can afford you can go with the timeless French tips and match them with your shoes or dress. Or opt for the stick ons you can opt for a timeless or match them with either your dress or shoes. If you are not fond of nails, file your nails and apply some nail polish, but make sure you dry it so that there will be no smudges.
These include your clutch bag, your earrings, statement ring, necklace and bangles. For you not to look like a hot mess, opt for four accessories instead of five. The clutch bag is compulsory, so you can then choose to for with the earrings and the statement ring and necklace. However do not make the mistake of wearing chandelier earrings with a chunky necklace and a huge statement ring, one of the items ha to be small.
6. A date
Weddings tend to suck if you go there on your own. However if you have a date, it makes it exciting as you will be having someone to chat and dance with.
7. Cash for a cab.
For those that do not have their own rides, it is better to include cash for a cab in your budget. Just in case you get bored or there is an emergency, you will not need to wait for the wedding entourage to go back home. It will prove to the world that you are an independent woman and you will not have to be desperate for transport.
8.The wedding gift.
Since you will be going to the wedding, it will be polite to by the couple a present. When buying a present, buy something that you will like to receive. As you all know ‘Do unto others and you will want them to do unto you’ Do not by a present for the sake of it, but do make an effort. Wrap it nicely so that it looks presentable, or give them cash if you are not sure what they will like.
