‘How Do I Look?’ Host Jeannie Mai’s Guide on What to Wear to a Wedding
With the world buzzing about the royal wedding between Kate Middleton and Prince William, it should be no surprise that making a fashion faux pas could make or break the big day -- even for the guests!
But even if you haven't scored a coveted invite to the festivities at Westminster Abbey, there are probably other weddings on your calendar this spring and summer, right? Well, not to worry. Celebrity stylist, host of the Style Network’s show How Do I Look? and Yoplait Light Two Week Tune Up spokesperson, Jeannie Mai, chatted with Celebuzz to dish her expert advice on how to prep for a wedding this season.
Color: When it comes to being a guest at a wedding, think about the colors of celebration. Bright jeweled colors of turquoise, royal blue, purples, or even pinks are gorgeous, and create an inviting ambiance towards the family and friends around you.
Cut: Because weddings can run long, and you're never sure how long you'll be standing or sitting, make sure what you're wearing is comfortable. Fashion forbid you wear anything that's going to have you fidgeting or adjusting and not focusing on the festivities!
Tune Up Ahead of Time: Everyone wants to look and feel their best before attending a wedding, so think a few weeks ahead to ensure you feel your best on the big day. For example, the Yoplait Light Two Week Tune Up plan a quick way you could lose 5 pounds in 2 weeks (more details at Yoplait.com ) for that added boost before attending any big event.
Night-time: Night weddings are definitely a reason to vamp up your look. Dresses can be flirty and fun, but makeup should definitely be enhanced for the lights. Be brave with a bolder lip, play up those eyes with false lashes, dare to go there! A wedding is just another word for a party :).
Cooler Temps: For cooler weather, think layers. If you're wearing a dress, it's essential to have accessory pieces to keep you warm like a cashmere wrap, shawl, capelet, or cardigan. Blazers look great over dresses with the sleeves rolled up, and leather jackets can totally play up a cute frock.
Warm Weather Nuptials: For warmer weather, think open toed or strappy sandals to keep your look cool, and definitely wear your hair up. The worst is feeling your hair stick to beads of sweat running down your back
