One of the most fascinating parts about weddings is how different they can be.

You can have a Vegas wedding where you dress up in clothes with feathers and sequins, a classic church wedding with the bride wearing a big white gown, a barn wedding where everyone sports cowboy boots, etc.

However, no matter what kind of wedding you have, there are some traditions that some people still stick to. For instance, many brides still believe no one else should wear white on their wedding day.

And for some couples, no matter how casual the wedding is, they believe a guest should never wear jeans at a wedding.

Jeans at a wedding is quite a controversial topic. Some people think no one should ever step into a wedding venue with jeans, while others don’t care and will let their guests wear whatever they please.

If you’re a jeans lover, have a wedding coming up soon, and aren’t sure whether or not you should sport denim on the special day, here are some tips to keep in mind for wearing jeans as a wedding guest.

Something to keep in mind is that, overall, jeans are considered to be inappropriate for a wedding. Weddings are most often regarded as formal or semi-formal events, and wearing jeans to either is usually seen as a big no-no.

If you’re still on the fence, the next step is to look for a dress code listed on the invitation or save the dates. Again, if the wedding is described as black-tie, formal, or semi-formal, avoid jeans at all costs.

If the dress code isn’t listed on the wedding invitation, there are some other steps you can take to figure out what you should wear. For instance, look up the wedding venue. If it’s being held in a ballroom at a very nice hotel, you should stick to formal attire. But if it’s a barn or backyard wedding, you might be able to get away with looking more casual.
