    Dressing for a formal wedding calls for more neutral and solid hues. Choose a dress with amazing details to avoid taking attention away from the bride. Avoid solid white or ivory colors as well as elaborate prints in your formal outfits. We love wrap dresses or sheer layers for this type of occasion. High-neck dresses with a side slit are also stunning options.
