What To Wear To Holiday Wedding

Hello, Darlings!

The holidays are upon us with all the activities and parties.  We are seeing more and more people taking advantage of the holiday season to have their wedding.  Today I am going to show you what to wear to a holiday wedding

Black Velvet Wrap Dress

Black Velvet Faux Wrap Dress From Talbots

If you have not already, you need to invest in a black wrap dress. The most versatile dress in your wardrobe. But when you need something extra special, go for velvet.  This dress is the Velvet Faux Wrap Sheath Dress from Talbots. The dress has 3/4 inch sleeves for comfort, a v- neckline and is made of polyester/spandex for stretch and comfort.

This dress originally came in 3 colors bordeaux, black, and navy and in misses, petite and plus sizes.  Some sizes and colors are still available online.  Might be able to find some in the stores.  I bought this dress in petite in the black and navy.

Add A Statement Necklace And Earrings

Kate Spade New York Bib Statement Necklace


A holiday wedding is a perfect occasion to bring out the bling. The statement necklace I chose is the Kate Spade New York Bib Statement Necklace.  I liked this necklace so much I bought it in both the black and blue.  It is a simple classic style that will go with many things and the slight drop pendant goes perfectly with a v-neckline.  For earrings, everyone needs a pair of oversize rhinestone studs.  I wear mine with so many outfits both casual and dressy. The Kate Spade New York Bib Statement Necklace did have a matching pair of earrings,  the Kate Spade New York Cluster Stud, if you like a matching set for your statement jewelry.

Panty Hose Or Not?

Barely Black Silky Ultra Sheer Panty Hse

For the winter time, I say YES to pantyhose.  The ones I chose were from the Hanes Ultra Sheer Collection in Barely Black.  This color is sometimes black and sometimes almost sliver. I could wear this with both my blue or black dress.  We are seeing the shimmering hose and hose with prints such as a fishnet look for the holidays.  Also, your pantyhose can function as a body shaper. Spanx has a pantyhose line.

Classic And Comfortable Pumps


Walking Cradles MatisseThe pump style shoe is the quintessential classic shoe.  For holiday weddings and cocktail parties, look for this style in velvet or suede.  The ones I am wearing are the Walking Cradles Matisse.  These are a comfort line with a block heel for stability and come in an array of colors including black suede.   Want to add additional bling? Shoe clips are coming back and are an easy way to add shimmer to your holiday outfit.  White House Black Market has some gorgeous clips.

Add A Clutch Handbag

Clutch Bag To Complete Your Look

Did you know one of the most important accessories for the Queen of England is her handbag? She uses it to signal to her staff.  For an evening event or holiday wedding, a clutch bag is an important accessory for me too.  A perfect place for your lipstick for touch-ups, cell phone for FABULOUS pics, and tissues for those sniffles.  Not only that, a clutch bag makes a great placeholder for the wedding table. Save that seat! My bag is one that my grandmother gave me.  I removed the straps so I can carry it as a clutch. I am seeing this classic metallic mesh purse in stores again.  Tired and need to make a getaway, use the bag as a signal to your husband.  Hey, the queen does it you can too.

Outerwear That Is Stylish

Stylish Black Wool Coat


With the colder weather, as much as we may hate it, we may need a coat. Make sure you invest in a great fitting black wool coat you can wear with evening outfits to events such as a holiday wedding.  This coat is the Jones New York Single Breasted Wool Blend Coat with Faux Fur Collar.  Macy’s has tons of black wool coats on sale right now. Don’t wait till you absolutely need it to go out and try to find one.  If you are lucky enough to inherit a fur coat or invest in a great faux fur, this is an awesome time to pull it out of the closet and wear it with style.

  1. Oh my stars, Regan! I want everything in this post! You look smashing! And this year my weakness is coats… that black wool coat with the fur collar is calling me! And that necklace! Really a fun post, Regan!

  2. I love all your outfits, Regan! You sure have a busy holiday season but are doing so many fun things! I especially like that Ruana from Chicos. It’s nice to have something festive that you can wear past the Christmas season.
