There never seems to be an end to wedding season does there? Just when the summer finishes and everyone has tied the knot, along come the winter weddings. Knowing what to wear for weddings as a guest can be a nightmare at the best of times, but when you factor in the different seasons, things get complicated.
Life and Style are on hand to provide support in your hunt for the perfect wedding guest outfit as we have a useful guide of how to approach buying dresses for each season.
Spring Wedding Outfits
When taking to the Spring weddings, be aware that although the weather is starting to get warmer, you might not be able to get away with short sleeves and skirts. Not to sound like your mum, but it might also be a good idea to bring a jacket with you too. You might be outside for a good portion of the day.
With weather getting warmer, so does the colour scheme. Warm light colours like lilac and peach are always a good option for spring-time weddings. With styles like lace remaining a dependable choice.
Our Lace Overlay Dress is perfect for a spring, and even summer wedding. It shows its versatility because the classic shape is flattering for your curves and radiates elegance that could be worn in the office with a blazer on top, or for a special night out. We’ve all been in the situation where you buy a nice dress for the event, but it just sits in the wardrobe for the rest of eternity. Thankfully this one won’t be.
Summer Wedding Outfits
It wouldn’t be a summer wedding without pastel colours. We all know that summer weddings are the time for these gorgeous summer colours to come out in force. In Britain the weather could change at a moment’s notice, but that shouldn’t stop you from looking your absolute best.
As the weather is warmer, the length of your dress or skirt can be a little shorter so you can show off skin that exudes elegance. But be sure not to go too far. Nobody wants to be the girl who looks like they’re trying to upstage the bride.
You can’t go wrong with floral prints and brighter colours. Again, light pinks and purples will usually go over well as a summer wedding guest outfit.
Autumn Wedding Outfits
The nice thing about autumn weddings is that you don’t have to worry about the weather being too warm or too cold, which gives you a bit more flexibility with the outfit that you choose for it.
Solid colours are useful in some circumstances, but at an Autumn wedding you could opt for a nice print on your dress. Try a design like flowers, with an autumn hue, which will add flow and lightness to your outfit.
Autumnal colours are the obvious choice for your dress, think rich hues, beautiful prints and delicious fabrics. Aside from here you can always go for nice rich blues and purples. Remember to think carefully about what jacket to wear and complete the look.
Winter Wedding Outfits
Much like the seasons themselves, there is a lot of overlap in the clothes you can wear for winter weddings. You certainly won’t get funny looks for turning up in a more traditionally autumnal outfit.
For winter wedding wear, you can go for colours like silvers, golds and greys, colours which just scream cold weather. You’re in luck if there is a “winter wonderland” theme, we can’t think of a more fitting colour to match the scheme.
This is a great occasion to get a shimmery, flowy dress that will turn heads the moment you step into the room. George has a gorgeous Shimmer Dress which is complimenting for the winter as well flatter your figure when you wear it. The two-tone design of the plissé will attract attention to your waist to create a stunning silhouette.
