A bride’s extensive list of dress code requirements for guests at her big day has been shamed online.
The ‘styling guidelines’ were shared by one of the invitees and asks those attending the nuptials to follow the ‘soft, romantic, sensual yet elegant theme’.
Outfits and accessory choices must be sent to the bride before the date by emailing or texting her a picture to be pre-approved or adjusted.
The message states: “Make choices that highlight your favourite physical attributes rather than trying to mask the ones you dislike.”
It demands that dresses to be worn should be floor-length, and sleeves, lace and print designs are all banned.
Shoes must be open-toed heels between three and four inches, with a strict rule forbidding wedges. It adds that if guests plan on taking painkillers to avoid the discomfort of heels, they should bear in mind “that when combined with alcohol, you get drunk 30% faster”.
Under a ‘beauty’ subsection it requires full makeup with lashes and hair to be down, half up or in a stylish ponytail with loose curls, adding: “No accessories, braids or beachy/bohemian hair.”
Jewellery is confined to “delicate accents in metals, stones and refined shells”, with no facial piercings or bulky pieces allowed.
Under a section of ‘tips and facts’, the list shared on Facebook advises on the estimated weather temperature during both the day and evening, and states that the entire venue will be paved so there’s no need to worry about walking on tricky terrain.
After telling guests they must bring a phone charger in their evening bag, it adds: “You will be in photos, on film, and appear on social media accounts of family members, friends, the hotel, or other vendors.”
