Have you received a wedding invitation? And among other information, it stated: formal dress code? If yes, then we believe that you immediately got a little worried and wondered what does that dress code even means.
When talking about dress codes, there are several ones that we separate into more formal and less formal. You don’t even need to be scared, the fact that your invitation stated which dress code will be required has made your search for a perfect dress 90% easier. The formal dress code is a perfect balance between a black tie and a more relaxed cocktail dress code. If you put on a floor-length gown, a fancy cocktail dress, you will respect the code and look gorgeous.
Choose long dresses, the ones that can reveal your shoulder or ankles. You can also opt for lifted or loose hair and choose whichever accessories you want to complete your outfit in a nice and elegant way.
