Fashion Guide: What To Wear To A Wedding?

Summer is finally here and across the country nervous brides are hoping and wishing for some rays of sun on their ‘big day’.
As a guest, the perfect wedding outfit can be difficult to find. While everyone wants to channel their inner glamour diva, you also need to look demure enough for a guest list that includes members of your family.
Whether the nuptials are bohemian beach themed or a more classic, stately home affair, here are some inspirational ideas for your next wedding outfit:

The perfect dress

Spring and summer weddings are all about colour, colour and more colour. So feel free to experiment.
This might mean opting for unusual colour combinations (think tomato red frock with navy blue heels, or maybe a bright pink dress with mint green accessories).
Otherwise you can always have plenty of fun with colour blocking, which creates a stylish and structured look.
The biggest trend of the season is dark blue lace, a style set by the glamorous Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. Keep the look classic and accessorise with nude strappy heels. Add a pop of colour with a red corsage.
Florals are always a safe bet for spring and summer weddings, with botanical prints channelling all of the romantic glamour of the 1950s.
If your next wedding is looking to be a more formal affair, then why not embrace the current fashion for 1920s glamour? Thanks to The Great Gatsby, this style is set to make a comeback, so try a floor length ruffled pink gown with ice cool accessories.
Finally, it goes without saying that nobody should try to steal the bride’s glory, so steer clear of white lace on her special day. Also be sure to keep the length of your hem family-appropriate.

Step out in style

A wedding can be a drawn out affair, from the ceremony right through to the final song at the reception. You need to pick shoes that will last the distance and complement the dress you spent so much time selecting.
If you have the stamina, a killer stiletto makes a great statement, but for more bohemian themed weddings with a beach or garden ceremony, classic wedge shoes are a more comfortable option.

Accessories

Sometimes it’s those little extras that can make a nice outfit spectacular.
Luckily, this season there’s also plenty to choose from, with a range of glamorous clutches, beautiful fascinators and delicate shawls to complement any look.

StarryNight







Hey guys, Just got back from Auckland this weekend did a little bit of shopping and watched my mum and brother audition for the play Oliver. I bought a woolly coat and some snake print jeans from Lippy and came to the conclusion that my favourite store in NZ is Wildpair, its just got all the types of clothes I love. Its fab. I'll show you some photos of my purchases soon. In the mean time this is what I looked like the other day in Auckland, got a few points and stares due to the amazing Purple Galaxy's from Blackmilk. The shirt is gorgeous and is featured in my romwe product review which i'll show you if i ever manage to get it uploaded. There will be close up photos of all my Romwe products and links to the site in my next post which will let you see them more closely. Its freezing today, and i havent had any cups of tea as we've ran out of teabags, so i'm feeling seriously deprived :( The earrings, ring, shirt are from Romwe, the leggings blackmilk and my socks are from Asos. :) Now i'm off to go hang out some washing, and then hopefully relax and continue reading my book The Man From Beijing by Henning Mankell.
