    Black is back for wedding guest dresses

    We don't know about you, but everyone we know seems to have gone wedding mad of late.

Wedding guest dresses have always been subjected to a rather stringent set of rules: nothing too sexy, nothing white, nothing lacy, nothing that might upstage the bride. If&nbs...

    Team LBD's SS13 guide to dressing for your shape
