Wedding Guest Fashion Wedding wardrobe worries? Fret no more, as we’ve asked our experts to share their top tips for gorgeous guest style. Cut out and keep in your fashion file! MOTHER OF THE BRIDE “DO consult the bride! She may want you to wear something that will complement her gown and bridesmaid dresses, or to avoid certain colours depending on her theme. While searching, keep a fabric sample of the bridesmaids’ dresses handy for matching up, and check colours in natural light as well as shop lighting.” “DON’T forget to wear good underwear while searching for your outfit. Occasionwear is often made from fine fabric and the sizing and fit will differ from high street brands. Wearing supportive underwear or a well-fitted body shaper could make all the difference to how a special outfit looks.” Beverley at Amore, Rhiwbina Tel: 029 2061 6100

VIP GUEST “DO look and feel comfortable - the photographs will be looked at time and again for years to come. Your outfit needs to be as comfortable when sitting for the wedding breakfast as it is while twirling around the dance-floor, so ensure you have a good fit. A longer length dress would make you really stand out as a guest of added importance!” “DON’T go for out-of-theordinary accessories. If the item is something you wouldn’t normally go for there’s a good chance you may live to regret it in a few years’ time. Go for something which matches the outfit and is flattering.” Suzanne at Suzanne James, Cardiff Tel: 029 2066 8349

“DO embrace glitz and glamour as it’s now a key look to aim for. You could go for subtle and sleek or elaborate and flowing - as long as the look complements your individual style.” “DON’T squeeze yourself into too tightfitting or restrictive outfits with elaborate hats - remember you’ll want to dance. Fascinators are lovely at the moment and once secured can be kept in all evening and for dancing if you wish.” Audrey at Ededa J, Llandeilo Tel: 01239 710513

“DO make a statement - it’s not every day you get the chance to dress up glamorously the way you can for a wedding, particularly if it’s being held abroad, so make the most of the occasion and really go for it!” “DON’T be afraid to wear black. I think the idea of black being inappropriate for a wedding is a bit dated now. A black outfit, especially when paired with white or a great bright and bold colour, can look very elegant and très chic!” Kate at the Copper Tree, Usk Tel: 01291 672810 John Charles Frank Usher
