1. Dress for a long day
A wedding followed by a reception means a long day of possibly several changes of temperature. So whether it’s formal or more relaxed, layers are a good option. A pretty dress or skirt and top with a light jacket is a great choice. A shrug is also perfect to tuck in your bag in case the evening is cool.
Being a wedding guest can be an expensive business, and if you have several wedding to go to this summer it can really add up. However with good accessories one dress can see you through. A new pair of shoes, scarf or a statement bag can really change an outfit. A good bag should be large enough to hold that shrug, plus your phone, tissues (if you get emotional at weddings) and other essentials.
3. Don’t Upstage the Bride!
Unless there is a strict dress code, it can be tricky to work out how dressed up you are expected to be. Whether it is a church wedding or register office a wedding is a great opportunity to dress up, but its best to avoid white and cream – leave that to the bride.
