When we think of weddings, we tend to automatically think of them being during the traditional wedding season, which is of course during the more temperate summer months. Weddings though can of course take place at any time of the year, and after summer, spring is a really popular time to celebrate nuptials too, in which case you’re going to find yourself dressing for a spring wedding.
If this is the case, then you’re going to need a few more layers than a light frock can provide, since although the weather could be nice, it could just as equally be abysmal with a few hailstones thrown in. Of course you’ll want to look your best, but that’s not going to be you if you’re blue with cold, or perspiring under a winter coat. We’re here to help you strike the right balance though if you’re attending a wedding this spring.
If you’ve got a go to gorgeous frock that makes you look and feel great, then you don’t have to ditch it as being too light and flimsy for a springtime wedding, but you are going to have to layer up and accessorise it to make it a bit more suitable for spring. Blazer jackets, shawls, even smart leather gloves will all keep you nice and warm and protect you against the elements, without you feeling like you are too bundled up.
Court shoes not strappy
Forget the super strappy sandals, and instead plump for something that little bit more classic. A court shoe is ideal and really versatile, meaning you’ll definitely get to wear it again! Although perhaps not the most practical, we are big fans of the suede court shoe – just make sure to protect with a weather spray beforehand. Court shoes also boast slightly wider heels than stilettos, which makes them ideal for socialising on slightly soggy grass too!
Consider a trouser suit
Forget looking like a 1980s business woman, trouser suits can be seriously glam and will have you feeling wonderful, as well as a bit more covered up. We love floral motifs, and whether you choose wide-leg of cigarette pants, you are going to look and feel glamorous. Just remember the golden rule and do avoid choosing a suit that is predominantly white – no matter how chilled out the bride is, it is only polite.
Keep your hat on
Although fascinators tend to be the number one trend these days when it comes to weddings, how about looking out for a more traditional hat? They can really finish off an outfit to perfection, and as an added bonus, they’ll protect your hair and makeup from any gusts of wind or train. Stylish and practical, what’s not to love?!
There is no need to wonder what on earth you’re going to wear when it comes to a spring wedding – with these easy tips you are certain to be a style success!
