Wedding Guests Outfits & Dresses: What to Wear Summer 2013

Have you been invited to a wedding, but aren’t quite sure what to wear? It’s never too early to plan your outfits for the wedding season. Be the best dressed guest -without making the bride cry!

Here’s what to wear to a wedding as a guest:
Women should look elegant in a suit or dress, and may also wear a hat.
Appropriate shoes should be chosen if the wedding is outside or on grass, unless you want to spend the afternoon aerating the lawn in your heels. Opt for wedge heels or flats, to stay comfortable in style.
Head-to-toe outfits in white or cream should never be worn and all black, unless cleverly accessorised, may look too sombre. Avoid bright red as it may compete for attention.
Hats is always appropriate for formal events and will add a touch of Royal glamour to your outfit. Department stores like House of Fraser have a great selection for a reasonable price.

No dress code? If the invitation doesn’t specify the formality of the event a pastel suit or soft floral dress for daytime or a cocktail dress for evening (after 6 pm) will take you almost anywhere. If it’s a casual wedding (like for a coastal or beach wedding) a pretty sundress would be appropriate.
