Wedding guests: dress to thrill

What to wear to a wedding? The annual wedding season debate will be a whole lot easier thanks with this guide to key trends and wedding worthy styles. Shop dresses, skirts, jackets, andaccessoriesanddazzle on the day.

Dress versus skirt

There is an army of dresses out there; from embellishments in bright hues to classic navy in modern cut, delicate lace, and pretty pastels. Styles come in more flattering shapes: from vintage inspired A-line to ultra feminine and waist enhancer shift, with length gazing the knees and beautiful necklines.

Skirts are a stylish alternative to dresses. The A-line style is making a big comeback. Ted Baker has a beautiful A-line skirt in delicate pastel prints. This number will work wonders with a fitted top and cropped jacket. If you decide to go for separates, dressy trousers or pencil skirts are wedding- worthy style choices.

The colour

Pastels are the coveted hues of the wedding season. Think lemon, mint, or dusty pink as power colours. Pastels mixed with delicate lace as an ultimate stylish and stunner style combo. Ail Ruin in Clarinbridge is currently stocking a gorgeous pink lace dress with embellished belt. This stunning number comes also in mint and can be worn with complementary shoes of similar colour.

Classic navy is one of the best neutrals for occasion wear. Combine navy and cream for a re-make of the monochrome trend. Fran and Jane at Standun boutique has this gorgeous navy structured dress with white flared hem details. For maximum impact pair it with navy and cream accessorises. If your dress or ensemble is in one solid navy hue, introduce red or pink or pair it with cream.

If you go for a vibrant number, then the brighter is the better. Go for green, cobalt, or even orange, and tone down the shades with either metallic accessories or muted classics in dual tones (black and white ) or solid shades.

Prints such as floral, block colours, or abstracts are very popular this spring. Florals really stand out in most collections. Harper boutique and Ladies Day boutique stock the sublime shape enhancer Diva dresses coming in solid colours or feminine prints. Pair yours with complementing accessories. Definitely worth the look.

Stylish cover-ups are always a style dilemma. I suggest going for a white blazer that goes with everything, or opt for a coat or a shawl.
