Is a dark blue lipstick okay for a wedding? It really goes with my outfit but I'm not sure if it's wedding appropriate? TIAflowers

Do you normally wear those kinds of colours? You can wear anything you like IMO, apart from a white dress!

My DHs cousin wore purple lipstick to ours, to match her purple dreads. She looked great!

For the bride maybe a little too much. Guest, why not?

The Corpse Bride rocked her blue lipstick.

I say go for it.

Smurf outfit?

Is blue lipstick ever ok?

Is it old, borrowed, or new?

Photos hang around for a long time you know. Dark lipstick can be severe.

Is it a Halloween do?

Are you secretly jealous of the bride and want all the attention to be on you?

No - attention grabbing - not OK

MrsGrindah Sun 24-Sep-17 15:34:11

If you don't mind paramedics running up to you with a defibrillator during the vows , then yeah go ahead

If you dont mind being noticed for the wrong reasons...

But for all we know it may be a comedy outfit wedding!

TweedAddict Sun 24-Sep-17 15:39:44

No, definitely not. Shouts attention seeking from the guest, plus how horrible is it going to look in photos!

For weddings, it's the brides and grooms day. I would expect guest guests to wear something that suits them and is as timeless as they can get.

It's not a fashion show

Depends... are you Joey Tribbiani?

Why would any sane person want to look like a corpse? confused

BillywigSting Sun 24-Sep-17 16:00:55

For a night out yes. Fine.

For a wedding? No.

Just no.

Just use some situational awareness.

Is it going to be a conservative church wedding with a formal reception? No.
Is it in an 'interesting' registry office with the reception in a contemporary art gallery? Yes.

Do you often wear blue lipstick? What does the bride/groom think of it? Is it something they would wear themselves? Do you think they would care if you wore it?

I have friends who would be delighted at me wearing blue lipstick to their weddings, and friends who would be horrified. You know them, not us!

Didn't know you could get blue lipstick 😳

MortalEnemy Sun 24-Sep-17 16:57:40

No, it invalidates the vows. The registrar/priest will bar the door against you.

paxillin Sun 24-Sep-17 17:05:21

Not sure the "start CPR please" look is good on a wedding guest.

NicolasFlamel Sun 24-Sep-17 17:10:43

I can't think of when it would ever look nice..

AndromedaPerseus Sun 24-Sep-17 17:19:59

Fine if the theme is 'The Rocky Horror Show' otherwise not so. Also remember not to do anything which diverts attention from the bride

PinkHeart5913 Sun 24-Sep-17 17:21:39

If the wedding is a smurf theme fine but otherwise never go out in public in blue lipstick

Margomyhero Sun 24-Sep-17 17:21:59

What's wrong with blue lipstick?

I had one in the 80s. It was cool!! I think hmm

Userlavender Sun 24-Sep-17 17:22:10

I think blue lipstick or nail varnish makes people look like corpses - but then people say the same thing to me when I wear purple lipstick. So whatever - if it's your wedding do what you want. If its someone else's then not sure - depends what your usual style is. And if they would mind. In the big scheme of things I think people at weddings are more worried about their own dress / makeup than anyone else's - until the apres event of photos anyway

Scribblegirl Sun 24-Sep-17 17:25:29

Definitely hinges on whether or not that's your normal look. On a couple of my friends I would be totally expecting an eclectic style and wouldn't balk. On others it would be a 'statement' and imo someone else's wedding isn't the time.

If you're the bride do whatever the hell you want grin
