The arrival of Summer also heralds the start of wedding season and selecting an outfit that is flattering, comfortable, appropriate for the occasion and adaptable for the great British Summer can often seem daunting!

If you’re looking for some inspiration then you’ve come to the right place! In this post I’ll take you through some outfit suggestions and tips to ensure you stand out for all the right reasons (just try not to upstage the bride!)

Colour Confidence

You just knew I’d start here didn’t you? My first tip is to start with a colour that really works for you (i.e. one from your colour category).

Go for a shade from your palette that really makes you feel fabulous – when you feel great, you look great after all. Now is not the time to experiment with new combinations. Opt for a shade you have worn and loved previously and that people have complimented you when wearing it.

Beware! Don’t opt for white or ivory (too bridal), avoid black (even if it is in your colour palette, it is a little morbid for such a joyous occasion) and don’t go TOO bright (Clears and Dramatics, we’re talking to you!)

You Don’t Have To Do a Dress

A dress is an easy option for a wedding, and there’s no reason not to go for this if you find something you love and which flatters your body shape and proportions. However, don’t forget that there are many alternatives to a dress that you may want to try.

Skirts have made something of a comeback in recent years and are a great option for a wedding. Triangle body shapes in particular will love the trend for full, prom-style skirts that is prevalent at the moment and what’s more you can get lots of wear out of a skirt for other occasions by changing your top, shoes and accessories.

Don’t like your legs? Then try a jumpsuit! There are so many available now. Be sure to choose a material that works for your body shape to ensure your jumpsuit is as flattering and comfortable as possible.

Dancing Feet

Shoes can make or break an outfit so it’s important to get them right!

If you’re wearing something new for the big day make sure you give them a trial run at home first (top tip, if they need wearing in then pop a pair of thick socks on and wear them around the house to soften and loosen any areas that may pinch your feet). If you have room in your bag its always wise to put a pair of flats in so you can enjoy showing off your moves on the dance floor rather than toe-tapping on the sidelines! How cute are these? Reasonably priced, lots of choice, free delivery plus they come in a handy bag too!

Accessorise

Finally – don’t forget the details.

Hats are worn less at weddings these days but a percher or flat beret (as seen on the Duchess of Cambridge recently), or a simple hair accessory will complete your look and instantly make it feel more ‘wedding’ appropriate. Finish your ensemble with some carefully selected jewellery and a bag or clutch in a complementary colour and you’ll be good to go!
