The fashion industry has reached a point where the “rules” no longer apply to your everyday outfits, however how you dress for a wedding requires a different approach as there is a certain level of etiquette required. And as soon as you receive an invitation, there’s no doubt that the questions regarding the dress code will inevitably roll in. You might have already figured out whether or not you can wear a chic jumpsuit or pants to a wedding as a fresh alternative to your go-to dress. But when it comes down to specific colors, it gets a little tricky. You know you probably shouldn’t wear white to a wedding, while wearing black to a wedding is likely OK. You might even wonder if wearing blush to a wedding is acceptable and the answer to that question is, yes.

Of all the different colors you could wear as a wedding guest, blush may be one of the more complicated ones to consider. After all, with the trend of pink wedding dresses continuing to rise, there’s a chance that the blushing bride may be wearing the romantic shade down the aisle. And if that’s not the case, she might have her bridesmaids wear the pink hue instead. However, this isn’t to say that you can’t wear the color, but if you’re hoping to sport a blush-hued ensemble to the ceremony, asking the bride what her wedding colors are is never a bad idea.


This pale shade of pink is typically seen during the spring and summer. However, when you consider the color as a neutral, you’ll quickly see how well the delicate hue goes in any season.

For anyone who wants to wear a sleek and simple style, you won’t go wrong with Reformation’s Chamomile Dress, $278. Style it with a pair of metallic sandals and a classic red lip. Another timeless option would be $1,035 Eleni Belted Silk-Satin Wrap Dress from La Collection, which you can wear for any formal occasion throughout the season. And for anyone who’s feeling extra romantic, let Rixo’s ruffled Antoinette Frilled Silk Midi Dress, $455, be the piece you wear.

If you'd prefer to wear a shorter dress for your next wedding, go for Preen by Thornton Bregazzi’s $1,540 Dakota Dress. Or, if you happen to have a slightly more casual ceremony to attend, Rotate’s $255 Wrap Satin Mini Dress feels decidedly ‘80s and will look just as good with a pair of elevated flats as it will with platform pumps.
