White is for the bride

It goes without saying that the only person in white at a wedding should be the bride, but it does bear repeating. Of course this doesn't mean you can't look your summery best and with all shades of yellow being a major trend this season, there's masses of choice when it comes to finding the perfect 'wear-again' outfit.

Keep it elegant

We know, we know...there are so many cute mini dresses and shorts suits in the stores, but a wedding is not the place to flash the flesh. Keep it elegant with this season's midi dresses in gorgeous prints, pencil pleat skirts or opt for a statement asymmetric hem.

Ditch the dress

Trousers at a wedding may have been a no-no at one time, but now it's perfectly possible to rock a wedding-friendly trouser. Stick to a fluid, wide leg and if teaming with a halter or strappy style, pop a co-ordinating blazer over the top (at least for the ceremony) for added chic.

Step away from the stillettos

Let's face it, it's going to be a long day and you're going to be standing for quite some time (possibly on grass) - not to mention boogying the night away. So step away from those sky high stilettos and opt for a foot-friendly block heel or wedge.

Go hands free

A cute new bag is a must-have for weddings and there's no shortage of fabulously colourful numbers in store. Just make sure you go for one with a strap you can tuck away for the photos, and then sling over your shoulder when you need both hands for canapes and champagne.
