What to wear to a wedding - wedding guests

So, your best friend is getting married! You know you don’t want to outshine the bride, but want to look and feel great and support your friend.

And if you’re single…well who knows!

You know it’s going to be documented to kingdom come, so you don’t want anything too on trend that you’ll look back on and cringe, but you still want a style that feels like you…

Maybe you’ve got the rehearsal, and the ceremony, and the party, and the brunch…thankfully there are plenty of fabulous options out there that can also multi-function when you get back home. With just a few frocks, a couple of pairs of shoes and bikinis in your carry on, you’re wedding ready!  

  1. Subtle sparkle

I love, a bit of casual sparkle in the Spanish sunshine - and even Zara has some great options that can be worn later in the year to Christmas and New Year events. I used to be the Creative Director for Vanessa Bruno, and I love this picture of the silver sequins in the sunshine!

Worn with flats to play them down for the daytime, or heels to dress them up, you don’t need any accessories, apart from a little clutch bag perhaps, or the finest gold chain or bracelet, and they are surprisingly easy to wear!

  1. Polka Dots

are always fun and a little flirty!

3. Lace Dresses

are wedding classics, and can easily be worn with some black tights, boots and big knits back in the UK (I’m originally from Cheshire, and am all about the whimsical dress plus thermals plus shiny boots and knitwear come winter) I especially love the colourful chunky lace styles that feel more cool and contemporary.

4.Tropical Shades

There are some amazing vibrant block colour styles at the moment, which feel at once timeless and fun, and don’t need much else apart from you in them! Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour – it photographs really well, and can be much more flattering than neutrals. Dresses and jumpsuits can be thoughtfully accessorised with softer coloured bags or subtle accessories – a fine chain or a few layered up with charms personal to you, or a jewelled tennis bracelet, gold hoops or a pearl anklet’s the small details that add your personal touch and make all the difference.

5. Florals

Whatever kind of girl you are, whatever your body shape - there’s a floral for you to blossom in! Not just for garden parties, floral frocks can be perfect for the main event, or for the next day lunchy-brunch where you need an easy to wear style after a few too many glasses of champagne the night before!

6. Easy Breezy Romance

Classic pastels can still look great, and if it’s really hot, you might want to consider breathable fabrics and crisp cotton styles, such as these from Rosie Assoulin, otherwise a floaty synthetic is fine unless you really feel the heat. I’d add some big earrings and bangles or bracelets to these styles to keep them feminine but modern, and they’d look great with a faux python sandal, or a shot of strappy fuchsia pink or bright turquoise footwear, to keep the look contemporary.

This pale pink organza number, is actually synthetic, but breezy enough for the air to pass through!

As always, if you have any questions or comments I’d love to hear - ask away!

Lots of Love, xoxo Aleksandra Olenska, your style whisperer
