Tough Wedding Outfit Ideas
Weddings are more diverse than ever these days and all the more classic traditions have become quite relaxed. Why get married in a church? Ceremonies can be held virtually anywhere. Rooftop bars or wine lodges. Bridesmaids are now given the freedom to select their own dresses and some couples are not even bothering with the bridal party whatsoever. Bearing all of this in mind just adds to the already mind-boggling decision of what to wear for these now, not so formal, events!
Where To Start
The truth is, these days you can practically wear anything to a wedding, so long as you obey the basics: don’t wear much (or any at all) white, you can’t go stealing the brides thunder…. But also be sure to make a little effort, OK? No jeans, no sneaks, not too much skin, iron whatever outfit you decide and try not to get an early, unwanted, buffet stains!
A wedding is definitely the perfect excuse to get dressed up and a great reason to buy a brand new adorable outfit. Lucky for us, retailers are keen to help us out during this difficult time (I can only guess some of the damsel in distress stories). Many of the big stores now have designated sections for wedding guest attire and some of your favourite labels have dedicated wedding guest collections on their very own websites
If you’re going to a festival inspired wedding with the wedding reception in tipi tents with bales of hay to sit on…. then we suggest a boho chic floral print dress. This floaty look will keep you cool but also make you look stylish with minimum effort. If it’s a more city style wedding then we would opt for a co-ord or tailored suit. This is a bit of curveball but tailored suits are so on trend at the moment that you may even steal the show (just try not to upstage the bride and don’t buy a white suit under any circumstances). We suggest opting for a pastel colour such as lilac or powder blue. You could even go all out and go for the colour of the moment… any deep shade of green are also being hugely coveted. This would look fantastic in the Summer. All the other wedding guests would be green with envy….I’ll let myself out
