Upstaging the bride is a no-go on the day every girl has been dreaming of for her entire life. Being a guest at a wedding can pose some of the same daunting issues when finding the perfect dress; without it being a sartorial nightmare. You can never be guaranteed of what British weather will have in store, whether the wedding you’re attending is inside or outside. Nonetheless, knowing what to wear and finding something that suits your figure and you feel comfortable in all day is a lot to ask for. Shopping for jeans, bras, bikinis and dresses are definitely at the top of the list when it comes to a traumatising shopping experience.
Many of my friends have a few upcoming weddings this summer and finding something to wear has been no easy task. A few have traipsed around every possible high street store as well as those who have raided ASOS with a free delivery and free returns policy.
Summer is described as ‘wedding season’, so if you are attending a few this summer and need some wedding dresses to suit the occasion, check out my Wedding Guest Dress edit; and for dresses that won’t break the bank balance.
Whether you’re looking for something glamorous, a one hit wonder or something elegant and simple, think of your dress as an investment and purchase something you may wear again for different occasions. Remember, accessories and a pair of gorgeous shoes can stretch the look even further!
