Dressing for a wedding is no easy task. Obviously you want to look good, but at the same time you don鈥檛 want to look too good. It is the bride and groom鈥檚 (or brides鈥 / grooms鈥) day to shine after all. So to help narrow down the options a few unofficial rules have been established: no white, nothing too flashy and no red. But in classic Nicki Minaj fashion, she completely ignored that last one at her brother鈥檚 wedding this weekend and proved the 鈥渞ule鈥 was red-y to be broken.

Nicki Instagrammed a slew of photos of her at the family affair yesterday. She captioned the beautiful one above, 鈥淟ove this stunning dress by Alexander McQueen. Tonight was perfect. Bride looked stunning. Thank you @rushkabergman & @officialsheiks for making her look like royalty.鈥 Yes, Nicki鈥檚 red dress catches your attention and is low-cut but the superstar still looks super classy in the long-sleeved number.

CEO of wedding PR firm Be Inspired PR, Leila Lewis sounds off on wedding etiquette: 鈥淚n this day and age, brides are all about their wedding guests showing personality with their fashion,鈥 she shares with us. 鈥淥ften times now that means color 鈥 even red! Some brides have even gone so far as to give their guests special instructions, such as wearing all white or dressing in a specific theme.鈥

If you didn鈥檛 get a go-to color palette from your bride and you鈥檙e not sure whether or not a red ensemble will fly at that wedding you鈥檙e attending in a few weeks, try to scope out the vibe of the wedding before you commit. If the color scheme and bridesmaids鈥 dresses both include pastel shades, chances are you could stand out with a sexy red. If the couple and the wedding are more traditional, you might want to reconsider white or red. And it never hurts to ask!

In case you forgot, Nicki is (well, possibly) a soon-to-be-bride herself so if this is any indication of all the traditional rules that will be tossed out the window if and when she and Meek Mill get hitched, we can鈥檛 wait to see what that will look like.
