Wedding season is in full-swing – with the weather warming and flowers blooming, it’s the perfect time for celebration and everybody loves a wedding. If you’re not the bride herself, you’ll no doubt be a wedding guest at some point this year, and it’s always a great opportunity to dress to the nines and feel your absolute best.
With weddings, there’s always a certain etiquette; the usual ones are don’t wear white (or black) and don’t upstage the bride so finding the right outfit that will turn heads but will still be suitable, can be difficult to find. To get the balance right, the key is to not look like you’re going on a night out, to a business meeting or a summer picnic so embellished dresses, suits and florals can be difficult to work.
We’ve pulled together 10 gorgeous outfits that are striking in their own right so you won’t need to do much accessorizing – an ideal option if you’re trying to travel light. These outfits will do all the talking so you can pair them with nude courts and minimalist jewellery and accessories.
Here are the outfits that will have you looking the best-dressed in the room (other than the bride.)
