A lot of brides and grooms are tying the knot this spring. A number of us have already planned the outfits that we will wear, where as some are yet to buy the outfits that are going to wear to the weddings. Weddings have since become a class affair in Zimbabwe and they are there to inspire the single people out there to tie the knot someday.
Make sure you look your absolute best so that the couple has good memories of their big day
Wear comfortable shoes
Match your accessories, gold accessories with orange, green, red and white and cobalt blue and purple with silver accessories.
Make an effort to buy a gift for the newly weds
Try and incorporate at least one of the wedding colours
Make in time for the ceremony, it the most special part of the wedding
Respect the wishes of the bride and groom, if they ask you to wear a certain colour, please oblige, you owe them that much
Wear something appropriate and stylish.
Observe the wedding etiquette
Do not wear black, it is too sad.
Do not wear white, we want the bride to shine, don’t we now ladies.
Do not wear all the wedding colours if you are not part of the bridal team because you will .look like an extension of the décor.
No ‘’selfies’’ when the bride is walking down the aisle or during the ceremony.
No crazy outfits, be they dramatic or tiny ones and ruin the wedding photos.
Casual is inappropriate, weddings are formal.
Go out of your way to upstage the bride, it is her day.
Fight for the bouquet
Go forth and enjoy the weddings that will be invited to
