What to Wear

BE THE BEST-DRESSED GUEST AT YOUR NEXT WEDDING

About to watch your best friend walk down the aisle? Planning for the far-flung nuptials of a distant relative? Master the art of wedding guest dressing ahead of your next summer soirée.

It’s wedding season, which means plentiful opportunities to don a fancy frock and dance the night away are on the horizon. But your initial excitement may fade when you realise that finding the perfect outfit can be tricky. It needs to be comfortable (for aforementioned dancing), stylish (of course), and subtle. Don't forget, all eyes should be on the bride.

The often-ambiguous dress code differs from venue to venue – and from couple to couple – but the destination is a helpful starting point for clueless attendees. Our guide to assembling wedding guest outfits will make the seemingly endless quest feel that bit more do-able.

La Dolce Vita

La Dolce Vita

When it comes to destination weddings, Italy is an obvious choice. Balmy evenings, fresh food and breath-taking scenery make for dreamy photographs to reminisce over. Lately, it seems like everyone is tying the knot under the Tuscan sun. If you’re lucky enough to receive an invite, make sure your outfit fits the occasion. Classic prints like florals or polka-dots carry an appropriate air of Roman romance. Wrap dresses are always a safe bet, and airy fabrics will help you tackle the inevitable heat. Style with subtle gold jewellery and loose curls to keep things simple.

Sand & Sea

Sand & Sea

Tousled waves, flowy dresses, flats over heels: the perfect formula for a breezy beach ceremony. Opt for a casual outfit instead than splashing out on a poofy gown that will likely collect dust for years to come. A cotton number by Faithfull the Brand will serve you for longer than a day; paired with a low wedge or sandal and wicker accessories for that effortless seaside aesthetic. As we know all too well, weather is unpredictable, so bring along a lightweight shrug to cover the bases.

Street Smart

Street Smart

Some brides are city girls through and through, and no occasion – no even their big day – can part them from their urban domain. Be it a city hall or landmark cathedral, a wedding in the capital calls for sleek, on-trend getup. Take it as an opportunity to break out a jumpsuit or elegant co-ord. Opt for a bright red lipstick to achieve that cosmopolitan glow, and slip into a mid-height heel to make navigating the city streets that bit easier.
