* Wedding Outfit Inspiration *

Hello lovelies!

The wedding season is quickly approaching, and so I thought it would be a good idea to share with you some wedding outfit advice. I've chosen three wedding scenarios that you may find yourselves in one day; The Plus One, A Family Affair and Best Friend's Wedding. Let me know which is your favourite! 





So you've been invited to a wedding, but you don't seem to actually know anyone? My advice is to play it safe with a solid silhouette and classic shapes. Wear a dress which is comfortable, and has a simple block colour or pattern. Team with a smart blazer to give you that all-round formal style. I would advise you invest in high-street items that can be easily transferable for other occasions and events. Most weddings are semi-formal, but if you are unsure of the dress code, stick to a fairly conservative style - Think Kate Middleton. 





It's the annual family wedding and everyone, including your great aunt Ethel is invited, so you're going to want to look your best. Feminine floral patterns and styles are always popular for Spring/Summer weddings, and will guarantee you get the approval of your grandmother. Keep it on trend by adding statement jewellery and a bright flash of colour on your lips. If you don't want to appear too formal, add a hot pink biker jacket and chunky white block heels to toughen up the look - Think Fearne Cotton. 


Best Friend's Wedding


This is the event where you can go full on glamour, without distracting from the bride of course! Invest in an elegant and sophisticated look, and pair with simplistic, yet stylish accessories. Minimalistic rose gold shoes and jewellery will add that glamorous touch whilst appearing effortless, and will allow you to keep the look understated, yet chic. You'll be sure to stand out for all the right reasons - Think Victoria Beckham. 



I really enjoyed creating these outfits on Polyvore, and it makes a nice change from my usual #OOTD posts. If you like this kind of post, please let me know in the comments below. Also, please leave suggestions of any similar posts you would like to see. :)

More soon,

  24. I really like your first two: Plus One and Family Affair! This made me remember that my boyfriend invited me to be his plus one for his sister's wedding in September. I'm so excited but I don't know which category I fit in with yours...I'm his plus one but I do know his family pretty well! Ahh this made me excited:) Thank you for sharing your wedding advice!

  29. Wow, all three of these outfits are amazing! I love the tones of the pieces you chose, especially the purple of the best friend dress. And you have amazing taste in accessories!! Sadly I don't have any upcoming weddings to attend but there's no harm in getting dressed up for no reason, and I just may recreate some of these looks for other events :)

    Thanks for the inspiration!
