What to wear as a Wedding Guest.

I’m at the age now in which everyone is getting married and those invites are coming through the letter box thick and fast (well, not exactly, but there’s been more than usual). However,  my poor wardrobe isn’t keeping up and I need to sort it out.  So, with my cousin’s wedding rapidly approaching, I’ve been on the hunt for some lovely wedding staples for my ever-needy wardrobe.

I love this red belted shift dress from Reiss, and I think it would look great for a city wedding. Pair with nude heels, a clutch, some red lippie, sophisicated accessories and off you go.

For a do by the seaside, try a subtly themed outfit with this cute stripy dress. Again, pair with the nude heels (they go with everything, I must invest in a pair), beachy waves in your hair and pin a quirky vintage brooch to your dress or jacket, the one below reminds me of a seashell, but I’ve also seen loads of vintage art deco seahorse brooches which are beautiful!

A rustic, country affair suits the ‘floral’ look and this dress by Whistles fits the bill perfectly. I’ve picked out the coral-pink accent and chosen the accessories to match with this coral clutch and patent heels.  I’ve got a thing about bees, so I’m in love with this gold Bumblebee brooch, plus it works well with the floral/country design.   N.B If you haven’t heard already, bees are in great danger of becoming extinct and without them, we are in trouble. Neals Yard Remedies recently launched their ‘Bee Lovely’ campaign in order to help save the bees.  Click here for some useful info on the subject.

If you’re lucky enough to be invited to a black tie wedding, don’t be shy! The Bride and Groom will be looking forward to seeing their guests dressed to the nines! I’ve opted for a chic nude & champagne palette for this look whilst also including this season’s ‘top knot’ hair style. I would love to be able to do this with my hair but it’s too fine!

Trawling the internet and looking at these images has made me really want to go shopping (oh dear) I hope this has given you a little inspiration for any upcoming weddings you’re attending!
