Clothing ideas for a summer wedding
Weddings are a great excuse to splash out on a new outfit – something eye-catching and beautiful – but it’s important not to dress so well that you’ll outshine the bride!
When picking out occasion dresses for events like weddings, there are some simple “dos” and “don’ts” that will ensure you make a statement without overdoing it.
Of course, summer weddings will probably involve a lot of out-door time, so it’s important to choose something you can look brilliant in, whilst keeping cool.
It’s also worth not going for anything too formal – depending on the invite – and perhaps choosing something you can layer so you can take off, or put on, a top if the temperature changes.
Floral colours are massively trendy this year, and it’s important to avoid wearing all white, or black, for a wedding. Going for something with floral print, or in flowery colours, is always a safe bet.
Don’t pluck out a long gown unless the wedding is likely to run into the evening, and make sure you pick out a hat that will allow you to see the bride, whilst stopping the sun getting in your eyes.
Obviously, white is a no-no: it’s a colour reserved exclusively for the bride on her big day. Heavy make-up, fancy tights or hosiery and exposing too much flesh should be avoided too.
