Philippa Morgan Walker

We all have to walk that fine line when it comes to deciding what to wear to a wedding: You want to look striking and somewhat fun, but not like an extra from a '90s R&B video.

Well, there are some basic ground rules that are worth referencing before rushing to the big day in a floral-print panic. We've covered the official dressing dos and don'ts of formalwear so that you can be the best dressed guest at all manner of nuptials and high-society soirées—with zero wardrobe stress.

So whether you have a city wedding to attend, a religious ceremony to consider carefully or you just don't want to have a very miffed bride on your hands (no white lace, okay?), this is a very good place to start. We can all lose our heads a little when a swanky event comes a-knocking, but it's really just a case of being fully prepared for every eventuality—and learning from some of our own fashion faux pas. Those strappy stilettos looked great in the store, yes, but were they really cut out for a marquee reception in a field? Not so much.

Click through to read the nine must-know rules for what to wear to a wedding when you're just not sure.
