What do you wear to a wedding?

A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine got married. Although we’d all expected it, Lou is the first in our group of girlies to tie the knot. And although they’ve been engaged for a while, it was strange feeling: I still don’t feel grown up enough for any of us to be getting married! And of course I was faced with the age old question, what do you wear to a wedding?


While I love hats, I’m not that keen on wedding hats.. and I’m not really that into fascinators. They look great on other people but I can’t see them on myself. In the end I opted for one of my favourite Zara dresses from last year, my fail-safe pair of nude heels, my tan mulberry clutch and a classic red lippy. Sometimes it’s best to try to keep it simple.

dress: Zara, shoes: Carvela, bag: Mulberry, bracelet: Tiffanys

Ps. J I already know what you’re going to say about me taking photos with my head down…

    That's a perfect wedding outfit – it's young but very stylish and not overdone. The red lippy definitely adds that perfect finishing touch. And having seen you in this dress and the length of it – I understand your dilemma over the French Connection one.

    You look great! I agree about hats and fascinators, I'll only wear them when I'm attending one of my children's wedding I reckon!

    What a lovely wedding outfit – that dress looks like it was made for you, I'm shocked that it came from Zara. Good shopping on that one 🙂 As for hats and fascinators, I've never envied you British girls and having to wear them to weddings, good for you for bucking tradition and going without!
