So don’t wear plain white-coloured dress as it will double as a bridesmaid’s dress. It’s fine as long as wearing white along with patterned dress or off-white dress.


ü  Avoid from wearing jeans & T-shirt: No matter how casual the wedding is, wearing jeans & T-shirt is a big no for wedding attire. Slippers shouldn’t match with any attire as well.
