I love weddings, partly because I’m a romantic and I love love. However, I don’t know about you, but when that invitation arrives in the post (after the initial yay someone’s getting married and has found the love of their life) one of the thoughts that come in my head is “What am I going to wear?!”. Do you get this too? I hope I’m not the only one.
As someone who pretty much lives in jeans and t-shirts, the lead up to the wedding usually involves about 1 million hours spent on Pinterest looking for outfit inspiration and another million spent looking online for that special something to wear. That’s why I’ve decided to list a few different looks for you below along with links to where you can buy them!
And then after all that time spent looking online I’ll usually order about 4 dresses, send them all back to then realise the first thing I saw was what I was actually going to wear..
Because I recently went to a wedding, last weekend to be exact, I have been on the hunt for outfits which are comfortable in this Summer heat, whilst being pretty and a little different to what you usually see at weddings.
If you’re looking for some initial inspiration for yourself, below is my Pinterest board of wedding guest looks, and here’s the link to my previous post about fashion statements.
You can get all of these outfits from ASOS! (not sponsored, I just love them!)
Here’s a few outfits I think would look great for a more casual wedding:
I love these because when I think of more casual Summer weddings I think about florals and bright colours, along with flowy soft fabrics that’ll keep you cool.
Here’s a few pieces that I think would look amazing for a smarter wedding:
I love the idea of wearing a colourful suit to a wedding, and just in general life to be honest because they can make you feel powerful, confident and sexy. Also clothing with lace, beading, embroidery and other details are good for any wedding or smart occasion in my books!
And if you’re really struggling to find something for a wedding, florals are always a safe option:
I’ve noticed that by searching through hundreds of wedding guest outfit pages online that a lot of them are in pastel colours! Now I love pastel colours, and I agree that they look good for weddings, but why aren’t more bright colours recommended online in these pages? Bright colours look good at weddings too and they won’t distract from the bride because they’ll be in a gorgeous wedding dress or suit or whatever!
At the end of the day, wear what you’re comfortable in, whether it’s a dress, jumpsuit or trousers and a blazer, after all you’ll have more fun if you aren’t worrying about how you look!
Hope this gives you some ideas if you’re off to a wedding anytime soon! Love,

I’m actually going to a wedding tomorrow(!), so I’m glad I find this browsing your ‘style’ posts. I’ve settled on one of two dresses at the moment – a white dress with a floral pattern (purples) or a burgundy dress with a black lace overlay. I also struggle with shoes too!

I know right! I always want comfy shoes, but also want to wear heels even though I know I won’t be able to walk in them! haha x
