The wedding season is fast approaching and brides across the country are picking out their roses and centrepieces. Best men are preparing their speeches and bridesmaids are trying on their dresses. A guest’s responsibility lies in attendance, a pleasant gift and for us ladies: the outfit. Weddings are a place for numerous photo opportunities and potential romance, therefore looking and feeling beautiful is a must.
We’ve got some knockout gems from IndependentBoutique.com that will leave you with a severe case of ‘the want’. Think chic, summery and colourful – and get ready to catch that bouquet…
Whilst you may not be able to wear too much white at a wedding unless you’re the bride, white accessories can perk up any outfit, brightening up sun dresses and are a welcome change from black. The Berkeley Bag by Lamb 1887 is a classic, happily cruising from wedding to the workplace, with versatility and style.
This gorgeous clutch by Karrah Designs is a vintage-inspired treasure. Adding a touch of girlishness and nostalgia to a simple dress, the bag has been designed to fold a number of different ways, giving you six bags for the price of one.
A wedding’s location, either indoors or outside, is the first step to finding the perfect outfit. For weddings confined to luxurious hotels: go glamorous and dress for evening. This soft silk wrap dress by Zoe Boomer is perfect for day or nightwear. Wear with towering heels and statement jewellery to bring this look to the evening.
This teal Sade Dress by MelikaM personifies glamour and was made for grand events and luxurious surroundings. A perfect choice for ceremonies dripping in champagne and chandeliers, from gourmet dinners to hotel soirees through to cocktail hour.
For a summer wedding braving the English outdoors, floral and flirty are key. Embrace the summer’s Jubilee celebrations for English rose inspired prints and fits. Delicate silks and lace trims fit nicely amongst the carnations and bouquets. For a nice alternative to dresses, a feminine floaty top is not only a simple but sweet wedding style but also a summer staple. This lace number from Minna is made from delicate Scottish lace with silk lining and will give your look an ethereal feel.
Avoiding full-length lace is a must, therefore worn with a classic Tulip Skirt such as this one from Melabelle, the outfit is fit for weddings, parties or any other summer celebrations that may come your way.
Taking inspiration from the season is always a sure fire way to a great look. In the summer sun take advantage of shorter skirts or yellow prints. With new blooms embrace feminine florals and under blue skies revel in sweet pastels. These summer celebrations are the perfect time to unleash your femininity and swap workwear and black clothes for sweet summery ensembles. Weddings are a great chance to dress up in your finest garments, drape yourself in your prettiest jewels and be surrounded by love, dancing and celebration. And with the wedding season upon us, what better time to make some beautiful new additions to your wardrobe?
