  • Yes and couple that with a sexy red dress so the bride feels intimidated so all eyes will be on you and the groom will ask you to dance, abandoning his bride at the alter, where you'll find out he's secretly a prince and he'll call for his helicopter and whisk you away to his Swiss chalet, just a summer home and you two will live happily ever after.

    Or you can just wear red lip stick and go easy on the eyes don't make them too bright or make them stand out too much, just go light with makeup, and it'll be fine. :)

  • On the prowl, are we? I don't see why it would be an issue. Even if it was a funeral, I doubt it would be seen too terribly inappropriate. Just don't wear a wedding dress, and you're good.

  • You CAN do whatever you want, but you should not do anything that could possibly have the unintended effect of drawing attention to yourself and away from the bride. Is it THAT big of a deal to wear something a little more muted?

    • My outfit is pretty muted so i thought the lips would be a good touch

    • Of course I haven't seen it so I would defer to your judgment on that matter. Obviously you understand the basic principle - don't upstage the bride - so I'm sure that whatever you do will be fine. Have fun!

    • Thank you

  • Vote 'A' - OFCOURSE you can 😕

  • Sure but make it as subtle as you can, ie, don't put too much on or go with a shade that really stands out.

  • It's my understanding that you shouldn't try to upstage the bride. But maybe that's only if you're a bride's maid? Weddings are stupid anyway.

    • Thats what I was worried about. My boyfriend wants to wear a red shirt. I tried talking him out of it. I'm afraid if I wear red lipstick that as a couple we'll be too flashy

  • I'm not sure why not.

  • I don't see why not. If red lipstick matches what you're wearing and goes well with the rest of your makeup, i don't see why it wouldn't be acceptable.

    It really spends on the dress code or what purify your wearing

  • Just out of respect for bride I would never personally wear red lipstick or any bright lipstick. Nor would I wear bright coloured clothing. I like to stay neutral for weddings.

  • You can wear red lipstick, but that'll make you stand out. If that's what you're looking forward to doing then yes wear red lipstick, but if not go with a more natural shade of lipstick and makeup, ones that match your skin tone.
