Weddings are definitely one of my favourite events to be invited to. They always have good food, drink, people and are full of love. I’ve attended a couple of amazing summer weddings over the past two years and had an amazing time at them. But knowing what to wear can be a dilemma (white is obviously not an option). At one wedding I wore a gold/beige knee length lace dress and at the other I (along with the other bridesmaid) was wearing a lovely pink number from ChiChi London.
Go for Yellow
I think yellow looks absolutely amazing on women. Provided I have a bit of a tan going on (and I can find some in a bottle if not!) then yellow is perfect for me. Yet, I only ever really wear it on vacation. I want to make a point this year of wearing more of it because it definitely also improves my mood. I think that yellow for a wedding would just add to the whole happiness of the occasion. Plus, a lot of people fear yellow so you may stand out from the crowd in being the only one wearing the colour!
Yes, yes yes, “Florals. For Spring? Groundbreaking.” We’ve all heard the quote, but the reason why florals are so overdone for Spring is because they are so fitting for it. Winter was all about the celestial print and stars, stars everywhere. It’s time for the flowers to come back in full force.
The mother of the bride for the last wedding I attended wore a gorgeous pale pink floral knee length dress. Mother of the bride dresses with jackets knee length look great for a wedding as it flatters the formality of the event but also gives you a bit of movement. If you don’t like showing off your legs (even if you do!) knee length dresses are a firm favourite for weddings. I love showing off my legs and sometimes it’s inevitable because dresses come up so short on me, but I wear knee length’s to weddings just because there are so many nice options and I’m hardly going to wear a long dress to a club!
Navy & Red
Two colours at the opposite end of the spectrum. Yet, two colours I predict are going to be hot this year. Red is arresting and a bit show stopping, so getting the right red dress for a wedding could be a bit of a challenge. Try to make it understated elsewhere because you don’t want the boldness of the colour detracting from the main event (the bride).
On the other hand, navy is incredibly easy to wear and style. If you opt for navy you can definitely get a bit more inventive with your shoes and accessories because navy has a tendency to blend into the background if it isn’t styled well. Perhaps you could combine the navy and floral trend like Ted Baker have done for Spring?
