I once wrote a post with my advice on what to wear to an Autumn/Winter wedding. This was back in 2012 (wow, time really does fly) but I’m happy that I can finally do the Spring/Summer version, even if it is two years later!
I recently went to the second wedding that I’ve ever been to in Swansea. It was my boyfriend’s Uncle’s and I was flattered to be invited as I’d never met his extended family. Of course my initial thought was, meeting these people for the first time and being a typical fashion blogger, what on earth am I going to wear?!
I decided on this gorgeous shift dress from the ZARA sale. I wanted a summery colour palette and print so I thought to myself – what could be better than this ditsy floral number?
I wanted to pick out and highlight the pinky/orangey hues in the florals by teaming it with a coral fascinator. A lot of people shy away from hair accessories at weddings and I don’t quite understand why. Sure, you have to be pretty brave to rock a hat, but a cheeky little fascinator? Why not? When else can you wear them?
Being such a giant, and the fact that at weddings you are on your feet a lot of the day, I decided on flats rather than heels. I threw on these gold sandals and co-ordinated them with subtle gold jewellery to dress up the outfit, whilst still maintaining the emphasis on the statement dress.
Beauty-wise, I put on my party make-up; this includes dramatic winged eyeliner and bold lipstick, which just had to be coral in colour this time. I then scrunched my hair for a summer beach babe look and pinned a few pieces back to make room for the fascinator.
It was such a good day and I wish every happiness to Kane’s Uncle and his new husband!
