Picking a dress to wear out is easily one of the most undesirable decisions for an average person to make in daily life. There is no better example to prove this more than on the sacred communion known as the wedding day.
At the risk of sounding sexist, it is a somewhat well documented fact that women take ages to get prepped up for an outing. For instance, the Telegraph UK states in an article, “Women spend about 136 days of their lives getting ready for a night out – enough time for an astronaut to fly to the moon and back”. Combined with the fact that a wedding is a “once in a lifetime day” occasion to be attended, the two make for a deadly cocktail of potentially confused women not knowing what to do with their wardrobes.
This infographic by Pixienova goes a long way in easing some of this trauma. It combines general advice (“you ll i.e. women would want to wear a dress, with any colour being suitable except for white”). The content follows a favorable pattern in lieu with what more than 80% of the readers on the internet would look for – highlighted keywords, meaningful subheadings, and bulleted lists. The Here’s more advice on what to wear to a wedding beautifully segregates the dress one should wear and links it to the type of wedding party. For example, an informal daytime wedding would normally call for a suit or short dress. A cocktail dress would be a no fit here.
These “associations” of dresses people have with certain occasions are a smart way to put across the message. I personally know that wearing a t-shirt to a business meeting is forbidden. This is common culture. Again, in the DO’s and DON’T’s section, what’s common courtesy is stated here very plainly but extremely expressively. For instance, “Don’t wear white, it competes with the bride” is extremely thoughtful from the perspective of someone confused about whether to wear white. Again, “Don’t wear black or sequins in the day time – this will make you look over dressed” addresses the “association” of white with weddings and hammers the ill effects black at a wedding might have.
The final elements are factual – Did you know, the worlds most expensive dress and the worlds most expensive rings are talked about. All in all – a thoroughly well thought through content, easily scan able layout of the infographic and concise text in most sections make this infographic a joy to read for its specific target audience. If you’re a guy like me – you ll know that we re relatively hassle free.
