I am attending a traditional Muslim wedding this June....and I have NO idea what to wear. HELP! I am 5 foot 7 and a size 16. I typically like to have my arms covered a little, and I am not afraid of color or print. I am having a hard time finding dresses that would be appropriate at such a unique wedding. My boyfriend is in the wedding, and will have a specific garment he is to wear in the ceremony. I have no idea what it looks like.
I have been shopping online, and haven't had much luck. Please let me know if you have any ideas on what I should wear.
Lindsey, thanks for turning to Outblush in your search for the perfect wedding attire. We've agreed that it would be best to put together an outfit that will not show off your chest, arms, or legs, which is why we've included maxi dresses and cardigans. A headscarf is a good accessory to wear, just in case you find out that all the other women are wearing headscarves - you'll want to fit right in! Lastly, we recommend wearing comfortable shoes that are easy to slip on and off. If you're still unsure about what to wear, you might be able to contact the venue and inquire about the dress code. We think you'll look lovely in the pieces we've suggested! Let us know if you need anything else. xo
