Depends on the wedding motif..I always love wearing dresses that go on the wedding motif because it pleases the couple. Usually, I never wear black and white when I am invited to a wedding. Because, traditionally, Filipino tradition says that wearing a black color to weddings is a bad omen, so we prohibited that. I always wear happy colors like Pink, Yellow, Orange or a combination to any of these colors.

It's been months since I last attended a wedding. Usually, my choice of outfit depends on the wedding's mottif. If it's a garden wedding, I'd love to wear something with summer hues such as green, orange or a yellow green. But if it's a formal dinner, I might want to wear something classy and dark. I recently bought a plum halter dress... and I know it'll suit a formal wedding dinner.

I also think that women wearing red is a bad choice to a wedding but things have changed and it doesn't matter any more. I haven't been to a wedding that I wasn't part of the wedding party for along time. Heck I think only twice that I was just a guest. Can't remember what I wore. I think at one I did wear a grey pin striped skirt/suit.

If its a dinner wedding, I choose purple or emerald green. For morning wedding, I like yellow or brown shades. I won't wear the color motif of the wedding cause I might look like trying hard to be part of the entourage or worst, I might have the sasme color of the table cloth ---which is very embarrassing.

also got to think about the colour scheme and what color the bridesmaids dresses are because you don't really want to match that. I think its more the style that you wear that will determine if its apropriate

Pastel colors are safe for weddings, I guess. I agree with you, you cannot wear pure white because you don't want to upstage the bride. That goes the same for loud colors like red. Drawing too much attention to yourself is a no-no: it's the bride's time to shine. But on the other hand, a lot of couples right now are going for nontraditional themes. For example, the bride wears white and her bridesmaids wear black. So in this case, I guess it's safe for other guests to wear black as well. Sometimes the couple might even ask their guests to wear black.

I have been invited to a wedding in September and will probably wear a combination of purple-y shades or maybe a black skirt with purple/lilac top. Its 7 years since I've been to a wedding and I wore a plain blue shirt with patterned blue trousers. I chose a 'crinkle' fabric because it was summer time and I had to travel for a few hours to get there.
