Wedding Style – be the best-dressed guest

It’s wedding season, so time to get some serious wedding style lessons, and be the best-dressed guest at the nuptials you’re invited to!

Wedding style has changed over the years, as weddings have changed, A nice frock and jacket and maybe a hat will no longer cut it. Your wedding style has to suit the wedding you’re going to. Formal dress on a beach? Don’t think so. Cutting edge cuts in the country? That’s not right. High heels in the sand? What were you thinking?!

But don’t worry, your wedding style is in our hands. We’ve chosen three styles of wedding, and given you a simple selection to make sure whatever the wedding you are attending you do it with top wedding style.


A wedding in the city, or at a modern venue, calls for a modern outfit. You can go big with a hat here, keeping your colour palette and shapes simple and pared down. This season’s pastels are perfect.
