Wedding season is upon us. . .but rest assured our top picks for modern weddings will inspire you .Did we hear you sing more, more more?

The main rule is, there are no rules to dressing to celebrate someone’s special day. 

In fact, the trend for couples to throw out tradition is now the norm. From giant pineapples taking centre stage in a jungle theme, to a Gatsby party with the flamboyance and glitz of a bygone era.

What to Wear for Modern Weddings?

Plan ahead. What time of day will the wedding be? This is a big issue if the temperature reaches a sweltering 30 plus degrees. An evening wedding will open up a wider range of outfits. 

Forget the layers, throw out suggestions of stifling polyester fabrics and suffocating bodycons.

Opt for simple shifts with floating fabrics that allow air to cool your skin. Carry cooling sprays, wear a large sun hat and opt for gentle hair up-do’s that are totally beach babe and survive the lingering humidity.

Outfit Inspiration

Lightweight and floating, this Elise Ryan is pretty and practical. Ideal with heels, but also great with day-wear wedges (or flip flops). Try this Pia Rossini pearl-like clutch. And to help prevent your make-up melting in the scorching heat, finish your beauty regime with an invisible veil finishing powder.

The invitation has arrived. The present has been bought and the only dilemma now is what to wear to a country barn wedding? Oh, decisions, decisions. . .but look no further. The ‘Jenna’ is our pick for this season’s romantic country guest style. 

 Lady-like florals, with knee-skimming detail perfect for covering up whilst flattering in all the right places, this is our summer wardrobe go-to. Delicate summer blooms will make sure it stays fresh, and no matter how long your celebration is,  it is versatile enough to go from four course dinner to dance floor as quick as you can say "Huey Lewis and the News." Go girl, you've got the power of love. . .

Bardot

So, it is a winner all round. Bardot drama to show off those shoulders contrasted with a cinched-in waistline. Pockets to strike a pose - what more could you ask of a best dressed guest?

Keep accessories simple and you can be sure to turn heads, guaranteed.

Style Tip

Style with a cropped jacket or shawl for cooler days, and play around with loose curls and a hair accessory. We think this is the perfect wedding guest dress – confetti at the ready.

"It looks amazing at evening events," style editor Peta Hunt explains: " I love the femininity of this Caroline lace dress

It would look fab with this pretty, statement necklace and a pair of super sparkly shoes. Also try a sophisticated fascinator.
