What to wear for wedding season
Wedding season has arrived and natural that means buying a new outfit (or three), from exotic beach ceremonies to countryside nuptials, here’s a guide of how to dress for every wedding occasion.
The city wedding
From cathedrals and town halls to art galleries and museums, many city centre landmarks offer wedding packages in a unique setting. Keep your look chic with more fitted styles, a statement bag and court shoes.
(Left) Plain Crepe Wrap Dress (available in Pink and Orange – £55) Cassie court shoes in Natural (£35) and Ruby Glitter Clutch (£25). All available at Oasis.
(Right) Little Mistress print prom dress (£60), Sole Diva cross strap pointy court shoe in black (£30) and lace evening bag (£17). All available at Simply Be.
The country wedding
Converted barns, marquees and even tee-pees are becoming more popular as wedding venues. Pretty floral prints and A-line dresses are perfect for countryside weddings, along with a statement fascinator and nude shoes, make sure you opt for a wedged or block heel as you don’t want your stilettos to sink into the grass.
(Left) Kelly Brook Printed Belt Dress (£60), Sole Diva platform sandals (£35) in nude pink, Pastel Envelope clutch bag in pink (£20) and Feather Bow fascinator (£20). All available at Simply Be.
(Right) The Ivory Prom Dress from Debut (£99), purple Jacques Vert two colour fascinator (£79) and The Collection cream patent high wedge court shoes (£32.50). All available at Debenhams.
The destination wedding
Many are opting for weddings in more exotic locations, from the Italian countryside to the beaches of Mexico. Light weight layers and loose fabrics will help keep you cool while sparkly sandals are perfect for beach weddings. A decorative hair clip or crystal headband are more practical than a hat.
