What to wear as a wedding guest

I have been lucky enough to be invited to a wedding this summer as a +1 and you know what that means – the perfect excuse to purchase a new outfit!

But I always find that dressing for a wedding is slightly more difficult than getting a new outfit for dinner with friends or a night out; there are just so many rules! Don’t wear white, avoid anything strapless, don’t match the bridesmaids… the list is never ending!

So in honor of the relentless rules, but excitement, of wedding dressing I thought I would put together a wish list of dresses that are suitable for the occasion and will not leave you looking out of place!

My Wish List

One of the primary things I am looking for is a midi length dress. I am absolutely obsessed with this length at the moment anyway, but the fact it is demure enough for a wedding is a bonus too. As I am only short I would be looking for a knee length midi, but if you are a little taller than a calf length one would look fabulous too! I really love some of the ones in store at New Look right now.

Obviously I need a little bit of height to give me a bit of a boost, but six inch heels definitely don’t hold a place at such an occasion! Therefore my options are either wedges or block heels – both would be comfortable enough for a long day on my feet, and work perfectly with each of my selected dresses.

In terms of colours I am thinking peaches, light pinks and maybe a baby blue or light green – all of which House of Fraser have bountiful of. I think light colours are perfect for a summer wedding because they really grasp the concept of the season and are elegant too. I do really need to find out the colour code of the wedding to ensure that I don’t clash with the bridesmaids – or the tablecloths!

So with these items, and maybe a white blazer or pashmina to throw on if it gets a bit colder, I think I will just about be wedding guest ready – tackling this fashion dilemma in style!
