Wedding Belles

Wedding season is in full swing. While we’re thrilled at the prospect of our nearest and dearest walking down the aisle, matrimonial dress codes fill even the most confident shoppers with dread. Let’s put a stop to pre-wedding panic shopping and start thinking about guest dressing logically. Here’s how to nail wedding fever fashion from ALL angles.

Classic Summer Wedding
A floral frock is a safe bet for most summer weddings. Think Pippa Middleton’s church ‘do, garden parties, bottomless prosecco-fuelled brunches and the like. Helena Bordon has the right idea. Add a little something extra to your pretty, prim dress with a brightly coloured court shoe. You can’t go wrong with our Alice heels and pink is the colour of the season.

Modern Bohemia
Bohemian-inspired weddings are all the rage. It seems brides-to-be simply can’t get enough of flower garlands, tea lights and rustic décor. One thing’s for sure, these events ain’t stiletto-friendly. Enter Carvela’s Like flats, adorned with enough sparkle and fluff to get any party started. Accessorize in the style of Roberta Benteler with Carvela’s pink Gravel clutch; the perfect pop of colour for only the very chicest party goer….

Showstopper
When it comes to black tie nuptials, it’s all about adding a touch of glitz. Opt for heavy embellishment à la Doina Ciobanu and invest in Carvela’s Grateful courts (this is all about opulent glamour). Cart your essentials around the dancefloor in our elegant Pearl clutch. Your only concern will be trying not to upstage the poor bride…

Destination
Destination weddings are the height of chic. If you’re lucky enough to boast a host of jet setter pals you may well find yourself Ibiza-bound later this summer (#goals). This is prime strappy sandal territory. If you’re a sucker for a skyscraper, give Anna Dello Russo a run for her money in Carvela’s Glimmer sandals. These will add height to your look without taking the focus away from the dress. If you’re in for a night of hard-partying, the Gigi mid heels may be a better bet (plus, they’ve got the sparkle factor for all you magpies out there).

So there you have it, wedding guest dressing made easy.
