You got the invitation. You got the dress. What is next? A statement necklace? Or a delicate ring? Or a bling-bling bracelets?

In theory, invitation to weddings should be fun, but, when the wedding is labeled a certain kind of wedding, that's when you need a little more planning. Is the wedding attire cocktail? Semiformal? Casual? Beach? White tie? Black Tie?

White Tie weddings are the most formal of dress code. Since they are more conservative affairs, be subliminal with a floor-length gown and round out the look with a simple clutch and fine jewelry

Beach weddings equals a long dressy sundress with colorful accessories. And don't forget a cool pair of sunglasses.
