We work hard for wedding fashion, whether we are just another guest or one of the bridesmaids. We spend days and weeks on mapping out the perfect outfit, with the perfect accessories and the perfect shoes. Then, the wedding comes and it’s fun and happy chaos. No matter what kind of crazy drama unfolds tonight, you keep yourself and your friends stylish and comfortable throughout the night by having some wedding fashion essentials. Here are 10 wedding fashion must-haves that will keep you and your friends on your toes all night long!
1. Foldable Flats
You walked into the wedding looking flirty and sassy in your high heels. Fast forward three hours later, you have been mingling, dancing, and pitching in to help the busy bride and you are ready to chuck those sexy stilettos into the nearest trashcan and just walk around barefoot for the rest of the night. That’s not a cute look. Lucky for you, you have these amazing foldable flats in your clutch and a comfortable and stylish alternative to dirty bare feet!
If you could avoid it, wouldn’t you want to go braless for a couple hours? Your excuse is that your dress demands that you go without bra straps and underwire, but you still need some coverage with your sheer, chiffon dress. These pasties are exactly what you need to be covered and comfortable at that long reception!
3. Breast Lift Tape
If you are a busty lady, you know that backless dress and dresses with thin straps don’t leave you with many options for support or lift. Sadly, invisible bras haven’t yet been invented but these breast tapes will do the job. You can get the same lift as you would in a bra but you won’t have to worry about your bra straps or band showing through your dress and ruining your look.
4. Dress Weights
If you’ve ever been to a beachside wedding, you know the wind is an absolute nightmare. All your dresses keep puffing up and you’re constantly in danger of a Marilyn Monroe moment in front of close friends and family. It’s not a fun time. Get these dress weights so your dress can stay exactly where it needs to be and you can face your family members without being red-faced.
5. Body Tape
Unfortunately, everyone’s in danger of getting a little drunk at happy celebrations. And whether you’re getting down on the dancefloor or swaying from too many glasses of wine, your dress might slip and slide in some embarrassing ways without you even being aware of it. Keep yourself covered and your dress secure with this body tape and you can party the night away without worrying about the position of your dress!
Celebrations can get messy and accidents tend to happen. When the wine soaks into your new pastel dress, no amount of club soda or scrubbing will get that out. Walking around all night with a napkin pressed into your skirt isn’t a flattering option. You will be glad that you have this pashmina to cover up any unfortunate stains. The additional bonus is that you will have a great cover when your party gets too late and the night gets too cold!
7. Clutch with Removable Strap
Again, weddings can get messy. While no one is likely to steal your purse at the wedding, it’s better to not have to scour the tables for your purses as the party’s clearing out of the venue. Keep your clutch on hand by getting a clutch with the option of a removable strap. You don’t need to wear the strap but this is a great option to have on hand when you are partying hard and the wine glasses have been plentiful!
8. Earring Backs
Nothing is worse than losing the perfect accessory to an outfit. You might love your earrings but when your earring backs come out, you either risk losing the earrings by keeping them on or disassemble your outfit by taking them off. Never face that tough choice again by keeping earring backs on hand. These will make sure that you won’t ever have to crawl on the floors again to search for the back of your earring.
9. Tide On The Go
While some stains need to be hidden, some stains can be fixed. It helps to have options when disaster strikes, especially at a big gathering like a wedding. Having these mini stain removers on you will be a lifesaver if you get some pasta stain on your gorgeous new dress. This is not only a helpful tool for you but also, for your friends and even, the bride!
10. Sewing Kit
You can cover up messes. You can try to tape things back together. But sometimes, what you really need is a sewing kit. No amount of body tape, pins, or pashminas can hide this fashion disaster. If only, you had some needle and thread to patch this mess up and you do! This is such a wedding fashion necessity when you are dealing with fabrics, big events, and a large female guest list. Everyone will remember you as the hero who saved the night!
