with wedding season in full swing it can be tricky to know just what to wear. it’s the perfect opportunity to dress to impress and showcase your finest formalwear. apart from a few etiquette rules to adhere to, including avoiding white, naval diving necklines or a bottom skimming hem, you can really go to town with colour, cut and style of an outfit.
when picking my outfit for a recent wedding i was eager to wear something a little different, a dress no-one else would be wearing. after browsing a number of shops and failing to find inspiration i made my way to harvey nichols and was pleasantly surprised. i have bought a number of bcbgmaxazria outfits for important events, including my university graduation ball, so I wasn’t surprised to find a wide selection of dresses that fit the bill.
browsing through the racks my eyes were drawn to a bright yellow dress covered in grey lace. there was only one size left, slightly too small, but I decided to try it on anyway. it fit like a glove, well, a rather tight one, but I was smitten. i love the spaghetti straps covered with the sheer lace and the bone bodice that nips in at the waist. i don’t normally wear yellow but it was just so cheery I couldn’t resist. i teamed the dress with a pair of silver heels by jimmy choo and a grey fascinator.
my friends all opted for very different looks, from tigh coral lace, to a long flowing black grey and white gown, a pretty blue shift dress to a multi-coloured dotty design. i’m not just saying this because they are my pals – but everyone looked devine. whistles and reiss proved popular choices for outfits and it was oh so much fun getting ready.
of course no matter how gorgeous the girls look no one outdid the bride’s stunning lace gown, a slim fitting number that was effortlessly elegant without a netted skirt or puffed sleeve in sight. she looked devine. now can someone else hurry up and get married please. i need another excuse to go dress shopping!
but the bride looked the most beautiful in her elegant gown
