Soon-to-be-wed couples have become quite the penny-pinchers, and with good reason. The cost of a wedding can be astronomical, especially during the summer months or on Saturdays, so you can’t really blame couples for choosing to delay their nuptials until the autumn or winter season.
While this is no reason to skimp on style, it does mean that you will have to rethink your choices for wedding wedding guest dresses. Darker colours, sleeves and some really gorgeous coats are all things you need to have a think about for the Autumn/Winter wedding season. Here are my three top picks for a winter wedding.
Ice, Ice Baby
If you fancy yourself as a bit of a (nice, hopefully) ice queen, a shimmering blue dress is what you need. This beautiful Chi Chi London Midi Dress is just perfectly accessorised with this sparkly Satin Jewel Embellished Belt and Little Mistress Chain Bracelet. Carry on the blue theme with these gorgeous Paper Dolls Two Part Sandals and stash all of your wedding day essentials in this glam Glitter Panel Envelope Clutch Bag.
Black and Quirky
If you feel more comfortable in black but don’t want to look boring, this super cool Rochelle Humes Caped Mini Dress is just perfect. If you think that looks familiar, it’s because the beautiful Roz Purcell wore it to our recent #FallForAW Autumn/Winter fashion launch. Add a nice statement piece with this neat Chain Maille Necklace and strap on these Lipsy Esme Caged Tassel Sandal. This groovy Feather Envelope Clutch Bag strikes the perfect balance between simple and quirky; definitely one to snap up. Because dark and moody has been the theme so far with this look, why not go the whole nine yards with this Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick.
A Trip Down Red, Flowery Memory Lane
For a more classic Christmassy look, opt for this Lace Sleeved Midi Prom Dress from Chi Chi London. If you’re anything like me, your life experiences may have left you with a deep sense of nostalgia for all those times your mother dressed you up in red dresses decorated in flowers for Christmas Day Mass. At the time you hated the idea of having to dress up, but that beautiful red number has totally changed your mind.
Add some pretty accessories like these pretty Paper Dolls Petal Earrings, a pair of sturdy (in case of challenging weather conditions!) Clarks Block Heel Strappy Sandals and a matching Metal Detail Clutch Bag.
This look is ideal for weddings, work parties and even family get-togethers, so that you can show all of your aunties and uncles how far you’ve come since you used to dress up in red frocks just because it was Christmas. Oh wait…
