Frequently Asked Questions
Should I wear a strappy dress to a winter wedding?
As long as the wedding’s indoors, there’s no reason not to wear a strappy dress. You can always pair it with a matching wrap if you need to be outdoors at any point.
Are heels or flats best?
This usually comes down to comfort and personal preference. For longer dresses, heels work best, especially if the dress brushes the floor. The last thing you want to do is trip over your own dress. But, flats or sandals work well with shorter dresses, especially for outdoor or summer weddings.
