I love weddings!
The romance, the confetti, the fizz!! And with the recent trend for autumn and winter ceremonies, there are year-round opportunities to put on your best frock and celebrate the loved-up unions of your friends and family!
Of course, you never want to outshine the bride (for a full list of “dos and don’ts” check out my wedding etiquette guide HERE), but with all of those cameras about, looking good is a must.
Shopping for a wedding-appropriate outfit can be difficult at this time of the year as all the high street shops seem to be selling are Christmas party dresses (waaaaay too bling-y!) and chunky jumpers. But don’t worry, S.W.A.L.K. has a fantastic range of dresses for every body shape (find your shape HERE), size, personality - and suitable for all wedding occasions.
It’s time to say yes to your dress…
The slightly longer length and beautiful red and orange floral design make this eye-catching floral print dress by ANONYME an elegant and classy option for an autumn wedding. Wear it with a black lightweight ribbed cardigan by ICHI to keep off the chill.
City Wedding Chic
This red geometric print Lala dress by ANONYME is perfect for a smart event. Boost the “uptown” vibe by pairing it with a black quilt effect shoulder bag with rose gold chain by SILVIAN HEACH.
The lace detail on the stunning Grace burgundy dress by SUGARHILL BOUTIQUE certainly adds a sense of occasion! It would also double-up perfectly for your work’s Christmas party!
The floral & bird pattern on this black dress by SOYACONCEPT is sophisticated but still shows your playful side. Complete the outfit with a light teal 3/4 sleeve Breadnut coat by NUMPH.
Keep It Casual
The teal with floral pattern shift dress by SOYACONCEPT and navy & cerise flower patterned dress by ARMEDANGELS are dresses for women who don’t “do” dresses. Relaxed yet stylish, you’ll look the part without compromising on comfort.
Centre Of Attention
You don’t want to steal the bride’s limelight, but just because you’re going to a wedding, it doesn’t mean that you can’t choose a dress that shows off your personality. You can guarantee that no other guests will arrive in this black & white asymmetric patterned Crossroads dress with pleated hem by CUBIC. Add a pop of colour with this small black leather effect with red velvet detail bag by SILVIAN HEACH.
Be A Lady
There’s nothing “cutesy” about this 3/4 sleeve black & green floral dress with front split by SILVIAN HEACH. It’s a very grown-up dress that you’ll be able to wear again and again, long after you’ve got rid of your prosecco hangover!
Got an invitation to an evening do? This black velvet with silver dress by SMASH puts the “party” into “wedding”!!
If there was ever a perfect dress for a Christmas wedding, it’s this dramatic red cape fitted dress by SILVIAN HEACH. The black velvet shoulder bag with gold chain, also by SILVIAN HEACH, is the perfect accessory, and one which you’ll be able to use throughout the festive season!
One Last Tip…
Weddings involve a lot of standing around, and at this time of year by the end of the day you’re likely to be tired, cold and have sore feet. I always keep a snug cardi (like this Super Soft Light Grey Long Cardigan by SOYACONCEPT), and my Uggs in the car for the ride home!
