Be it a quick hop over the Channel to a picturesque vineyard or long haul to lavish L.A. the heat sure does cause one heck of a challenge when choosing a wedding worthy outfit. So we recommend keeping it light and in the spirit of the happy couple’s wishes, seasonal, but come prepared and pack sand-sturdy shoes and lots of layering options too!
Be the belle of the beach in our colourful dresses which give a seasonal nod to all things fresh and floral as well as making sure you’ll stand out amongst the plethora of plain, boho-chic maxi dress guaranteed to be filling the beachside pews. This dress is great for ladies blessed with a hourglass figure too as it features a flattering cinched in waist and pencil skirt design. Team your floral fancy witha bow heel and matching Bag. And don’t forget to pack a cool cover-up from our newly updated collection should the weather go a little British on you!
Who said being out in the sticks couldn’t be glamorous? An evening of cosying up by the log fire after dancing the day away under an ultra-glam gazebo with the best man awaits those lucky enough to be invited to the ever popular country luxe wedding. And to celebrate the occasion Team LBD recommend going all out with your outfit choice- think chic creams, lace, rich silk effect frocks and girly accessories in grown-up shades.
For a country cool outfit take a look at the a more vintage dress in gold. The straps on this super-shiny dress are also detachable and it comes with a silk scarf making it super versatile for all ages and styles. Pair your sumptuous satin dress with the Bourne Taylor Clutch Bag in Fawn, £124, and go matchy matchy as recommended by our resident Wedding Expert. The soft nude colour of these will really compliment the gold of the dress, and with a lashing of crystal embellishment it will have you feeling like lady of the manor.

Heading to the bright city lights for a wedding? Well here at Team LBD we have plenty of sophisticated and chic outfits to keep you looking cosmopolitan. Gone are the days when wearing black at a wedding would be the height of fashion faux pas. Now you can slink your way to your seat to watch the main event in all your sophisticated glory and then shasay around the dance floor in the same party-ready black number without a disapproving glance from anyone- hooray!
And if you’re going to go dark and mysterious you might as well do it properly with the floor-sweepingly fabulous LBD. The streamline silhouette and black crystal embellishment screams simple elegance and is perfect for urban themed nuptials. Team this dress with a bright colour to maintain a playful, romantic look- we recommend the matching shoes and a bag. Finish your immaculate look with a swept back ballerina bun and show off some jewellery. Finish your look with a rather large Cosmo Sex and the City style!
HIT THE DANCE FLOOR!
If you haven’t made the guest list for the day time festivities of The Wedding Of The Year worry not as the evening event will surely be The Party Of The Year. Plus you won’t have to worry about packing a change of dress or finding that all important day-to-night-not-too-over-the-top-but-eye-catching LBD. Instead, you’re left with the simple task of bagging the perfect little party piece and Team LBD have just the dress for the job.
We recommend short, sweet and sassy for a night time reception and LBD is a great option as the racer-back, halterneck design give what could be a plain dress that quirky-cool edge. For shoes go high and mighty with the tough, rock chick-inspired wedges by Paradox or Miss Diva which will maintain height, stop you looking like you’ve tried too hard and keep you on the dance floor even after vino numero three! And if you’re dancing the night away the last thing you want to worry about is rugby tackling a sweetie-coloured, designer clutch bag from a rogue toddler whose up way past their bedtime. Instead grab It bag which you can keep securely on you at all times with its simple over-the-shoulder chain, and which features some handy pockets for every wedding guest’s essentials.
