Can You Wear Pants to a Wedding?

I love weddings. There’s the obvious reason why: Seeing two people in love join their lives together is undeniably amazing. And there’s the selfish reason: I love putting together new head to toe outfits. I usually spend weeks thinking about accessories, shoes, and most importantly, what dress I’ll wear. (I will not get burnt again by waiting until the minute!) With my friend Molly’s wedding fast approaching, I started plotting my outfit and had  a crazy thought: What if I wore pants to Molly’s wedding?

The idea seemed so earth shattering to my dress-loving world that I couldn’t help but to entertain it. I asked friends who felt equally uncomfortable with the question, but most of use came to the same conclusion: Why not? The wedding uniform for baby girls to grandmas seems to be the ever-present dress. But when it comes to fall and winter weddings, there’s no reason why pants shouldn’t be an option!

  1. I love the pointed silver toes. They are so glamorous!

  2. Hell yeah! For my friend’s weddings I’m totally wearing pants or even a full suit. So far, I’ve only gone to family weddings where my mother screams at me that I need to wear a dress *eye roll* Then my friend got married in a traditional Muslim wedding so I had to wear a sari. But I’ve plotting gorgeous outfits in pants because I’m more comfortable in pants, I think they are super chic and you can do more dance moves!


  1. […] out an outfit for this wedding was hard. I played with wearing a long dress and even pants, but I ultimately settled on a little black dress by a brand called Jax. To say I settled is wrong, […]
