Wedding season can be a bittersweet time for lengthy ladies! Though you look forward to celebrating your friends' matrimony, finding wedding-appropriate hemlines and non midriff-baring tops to witness your bestie say 'I do' can be a nightmare! Finding something you feel beautiful in, that's the right length and the right fit is tough - we know!! That's why we've complied a guide so you can feel like your confident, beautiful self without the stress of "am I wearing the right outfit?", "is my skirt too short for church", or "are these heels too high??"!
In Edmonton we have so many beautiful and unique wedding venues that cater to any couple! We've highlighted a few of YEG's faves so no matter how big, small, casual or formal the event you're attending, Hye Fashion has the perfect outfit for you!!
Country Chic: Family Farm
Whether you're a girlie girl or you like a little more edge, this adorable cherry blossom dress can be styled to your hearts desire! Keep it sweet with pearls and neutral accessories or amp it up with a modern cuff and black accessories! We love the length on our six-foot-tall model (who, by the way claims this is one of the best fits she's ever tried from this brand)! Which is your fave?!
Garden Inspired: Muttart Conservatory
A Maxi dress is always a good bet for an indoor or outdoor garden-inspired wedding! If you're going to be on the grass be sure to wear flats or wedges so you aren't sinking in everywhere! Pick metallic accessories to add some sparkle & a little shrug for when it starts to cool down in the evening!
Traditional Elegance: Hotel MacDonald
For those more formal occasions, choose a classic fitted dress with lots of length! Now is not the time to be sporting a mini skirt! This ruched dress from Papillon is "SOO COMFORTABLE" according to our six foot tall model & has the perfect length for our long bodies! AND it comes in three gorgeous colours! Pair it with fun but elegant accessories to add some personality! Consider adding a shawl if you'd opt for a little more coverage! ...and this dress isn't a one-wear style! Once we close the doors on wedding season, pair this beauty with boots & a blazer for Fall days at the office or wear it to your Holiday soirée!!
Funky Pants: ATB Financial Art Barn
Located in the heart of Old Strathcona, the Art Barn is a great venue for a funky wedding! As a guest, you can be funky too! Sporting a slightly more casual look with printed pants & pops of colours is a fantastic way to look great without sporting the same old sundress! And you'll be so comfy that you'll be able to feast with your friends and dance the night away!
Non-Traditional Cool: Yellowhead Brewery
Traditional dresses & customs aren't for everyone! Every couple is one-of-a-kind & many like that to be reflected in their big day!! So if the bride is sporting combat boots or a brightly coloured dress, you know you can have a little more fun with your wardrobe too! Don't be afraid to wear something that is completely YOU! Slip on your sassiest leather pants (like these Made-in-Canada jeggings!) or your best fitting jeans! Be sure to dress up your outfit the appropriate amount for the occasion (maybe heels & a statement necklace?) but most importantly, have fun with it!
