THE FASHION EDIT | The Perfect Wedding Guest Outfit

With wedding season well and truly upon us, it's an exciting time for everyone. But trying to figure out what to wear can make you feel the complete opposite and you can end up feeling quite overwhelmed as there are so many choices. But before you even begin your search for the perfect wedding guest out there is so much to consider, especially if there is a specific theme or dress code. So today before we get into the perfect wedding guest outfit, there are a couple of things you should know before you begin your search.
Elegance and class are vital, but functionality is key as it's a long day with a lot of dancing involved. White is an obvious colour to avoid. White is reserved for the bride and since it is her special day, you should avoid the shade at all costs. There have been occasions when the bride has asked her guests to wear all white or has asked them to do so because she is wearing another hue, but those moments are rare. You should definitely stay within the confines of the theme if there is one. But, you also want to make sure you feel good about your outfit as confidence is essential. Now we have those oh so important etiquettes with being a guest at a wedding out of the way we can now focus on you. Be the best dressed guest with this ultimate flawless wedding guest outfit. Whether you're heading to the country for rural nuptials, attending a modern city ceremony or jetting off to sunnier climates, I may just have the perfect solution.

How gorgeous is this beautiful outfit? I have been looking for the perfect wedding guest outfit that will be ideal for an afternoon wedding, but will also see me through until the evening reception. I have been searching high and low and came across a little place called Love The Sales, that brings sales items for retailers and brands into one place for shoppers like me to browse. The online hub collates sale items across fashion, beauty, electronics, and homeware all at reduced prices from all kinds of brands. Seeing as I have been trying to find he perfect wedding guest outfit that will be sure to help me stand out from the crowd but be a practical outfit to wear all day, this beautiful Millicent Rose Dress from the Phase Eight Sale is perfect!

Now for the accessories. I do have to say adding the finishing touches to an outfit is by far my favourite part. No outfit is complete without a beautiful pair of brand new shoes and an oh so cute handbag to carry all your must have wedding essentials. I found the perfect handbag via Love The Sales in the form of this Vivienne Westwood Pink Satchel. I adore the feminine rose pink hue, this will make a gorgeous addition to this pretty in pink outfit. Shoes, shoes, shoes! Yes, I love shoes and due to the soft pink theme with this outfit, I want to be sure to add the wow factor to the adorable pretty in pink ensemble. Lane Crawford Sam Edelman 'Hazel' Satin Pump in Pale Pink Satin are such a great match. I feel as if these would be perfect to wear throughout the day with a 4" stiletto heel, to add the extra feminine finish. No wedding outfit is complete without a beautiful fascinator, this eye-catching mesh fascinator is set on a headband, and features pretty floral and feather embellishment. Carly Flower Fascinator is also from the Phase Eight Sale.
