What To Wear To A Wedding If You Hate Dresses

If you're one of many who don't want to rock a frock to your BFF's wedding, finding what to wear to a wedding if you hate dresses is super important. There are a ton of misconceptions about what you have to wear to a wedding, but the truth is that only a couple of those rules are hard and fast. You definitely shouldn't wear white, and if you can tell from the invite what the color scheme is, looking like a bridesmaid is also probably not a good call. But that old fashioned idea you must wear a dress is outdated, especially since there are tons of incredible options for you.

Need proof that dresses are no longer a required element of wedding attendance? Check out Debby Ryan rocking a tux at her brother's wedding. While Debby was the best (wo)man — and thus on the groom's side with the rest of the party — she still chose to wear a killer grey suit and looked gorgeous! Not to mention that tons of brides are choosing to even forgo the uber traditional wedding dress in favor of suits. The point is that whatever makes you the most comfortable is what's going to ensure you have the best time.
