Weddings and What to Wear

Weddings are my favorite, this year I got to be a bridesmaid!  This was for my cousin's wedding two weeks ago now but it really was a great day that completely knackered me for the following day.

I think I'm a little bit obsessed with weddings, I once did a whole projects on them in AS Fine Art.  I also used to work in a florist during my business administration apprenticeship so I got to meet several brides and learn about the flowers for a wedding.  This will all be very beneficial when I plan my own wedding in the future.

But for now I would like to share a few wedding looks with you as I seem to have a fare few suitable dresses in my wardrobe.

Please note these clothes are not current collections in shops but I will note where they came from in case they have something similar.  Please excuse my chubbiness.

Look 1; 70s Chic - Tried and Tested
Hat:  Essential
Jacket; H&M
Dress; Forever 21
Necklace; Superdrug
Watch; Michael Kors
Clutch Bag; Primark
Wedges; Top Moda (Las Vegas market)

Look 2; Floral Flip
 Flower Hairclip; Primark
Blazer; Matalan

Handbag; Primark

Look 3; Floral Nude
Flower Headband; Home Bargains (Still have them)
Dress; Oasis

Look 4; Posh Pink
Fascinator; BHS

Handbag; Primark
Heels; New Look
Look 5; Slinky Mermaid
Fascinator; Debenhams
Blazer; Matalan
Dress; Lipsy

Look 6; Smart Rouge
Fascinator; Home Bargains (Still have them)
Necklace; Primark
Blouse; New Look
Belt; Boohoo
Skirt; Red Herring
Clutch Bag; Primark

I think the key to these looks is the accessories that pull it all together into wedding worthy attire.  So a fascinator, hat or even just flowers in your hair really amp up the glamour.  The jacket or cardigan and bag can really liven up any dress.  And of course a pair of heels or wedges finish the look but remember to bring flats if you want to dance the night away.

My top tip would be to pick a colour that complements you or the wedding theme and stick to a maximum of 4 colours for everything else.  And if you are wearing a print such as florals just stick to one or two items such as a dress or just heels and matching bag.
