THE ANSWER TO YOUR WEDDING GUEST WOES
Is it just us or are our social calendar’s slowly becoming full to the brim with spring time ceremonies? It only seemed like yesterday we were celebrating engagements and receiving our save the dates through the post, right? Before we know it, we are amidst the classic dilemma of ‘what to wear’…
*Would it be too much to suggest that a reminder be sent from the happy couple to prompt us that we have four weeks to pick the perfect wedding guest dress? Perhaps. *
Well, just like that wedding season is upon us and once again we are faced with the fact we are running out of time to find and purchase the ultimate ensemble to see us through all upcoming ceremonies... and with so many factors to take into consideration, curbing panic buys can be quite the task. So, in true OTL fashion, we’re here to save the ‘big day’ and offer a little inspiration for every kind of spring nuptials you have coming your way…
AT A CHURCH
It’s a given that you should keep your shoulders covered at a church ceremony, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look stylish whilst doing so. Thanks to Skeena S, we have an array of high neck midi dresses that are perfect for just that (and so much more!). Think simple shapes adorned with intricate digital prints, the ultimate way to stay respectful whilst looking fabulous!
IN THE GARDEN
A garden ceremony naturally calls for easy breezy styles that are going to allow you to float around a marquee gracefully from day through till night. Opt for lightweight fabrics like chiffon or satin that are ideal for draping off your frame and sweeping across the dance floor for a whimsical feel. Don’t forget, a softer colour palette is a must at the moment and a touch on one of the biggest trends this season.
ON THE BEACH
Heading overseas for a ceremony by the sea? Then keep your overall look laid back with a slinky slip dress. The loose fit is ideal for long periods under the warm sun, whilst the maxi length keeps it wedding appropriate and a style that you can wear again and again. Dare to be different and go for something bold, such as a spring/summer favourite of ours – rainbow colour block.
IN THE CITY
If you’re a wedding guest in the city, then why not try something slightly more structured and straight cut? The ultimate way to keep your look elegant is by opting for a trendy two piece or a contemporary jumpsuit, that are less fuss and more fashion-forward. Finish this look off with a block heel, sleek low pony tail and bold red lip!
AT A CHATEAU
There’s something romantic about a chateau hidden amongst bounding hills, so for this kind of occasion, you should choose something that’s just that – romantic. Keep your look pretty and polished with a midi length dress, that is classic in shape but has features such as lace detailing or feather frippery to give it that contemporary edge. Who said romance was dead?
