May has arrived and that means the summer wedding season is upon us. But as weddings become more varied in style, location and formality, it can become overwhelming when trying to pick the right outfit. Luckily our clients have the necessities we need to create the ultimate summer weddings guide and make you the perfect wedding guest.
For Him – (Semi) Formal
For both formal and semi-formal affairs, look no further than Duchamp’s luxury and designer selection of suits. The Iconic Tuxedo Royale Suit will certainly fit the bill for formal affairs while the Iconic Mohair suit ensures durability and comfort to dance the night away at semi-formal weddings.
Don’t forget about the accessories! Duchamp’s range of colourful ties is a great accent to sunny summer weather, while cufflinks and pocket squares polish off the outfit.
For Him – Country Wedding (Or Dressy Casual)
Country weddings allow you to get creative and break out different colours and patterns with your outfit. Where better to look for your country wedding attire than the country wear experts, Cordings? Feel free to forego the full suit; separates absolutely work at this level of informality. Their range of light cotton and linen jackets, paired with trousers in beige, blue, cream or grey give you an opportunity to show your personality while being both comfortable and stylish.
While the attire may be casual, ties are still a must. Check out Emma Willis’ tie selection. Her range includes just about every colour and pattern you could think of!
For Her – Formal
Ladies contemplating a conservative look for formal weddings should look to Stewart Parvin as their solution. The beautiful womenswear line offers both full length and knee length dresses as well coordinating coats to make an outfit fit for a queen!
For Her – Dressy Casual or Semi-Formal
A dressy casual dress code is more relaxed and a great opportunity to showcase fashion forward designs while playing with colour, patterns and materials. Three Floor Fashion have a great selection of stylish dresses and separates that let you show off your personality without upstaging the bride.
If you prefer a more muted look, why not consider ME + EM’s Intelligent Style Collection. The Garden Party Dress is an on-trend midi length dress with a frilled neck, while the V Neck Flippy Dress has simple yet modern femininity to it with its frilled sleeve detail. Of course you can never go wrong with the classic Sleeveless A Line Shift Dress, which comes in three colours: tangerine, oyster and navy.
Gift – The Bride and Groom
While the outfits are important, don’t have the worst wedding faux-pas of all – forgetting the gift! If you’re looking for a gift not on the gift list, Luxury British jeweller, Asprey has a range of unique wedding gifts to consider. From leather travel bags to silver and glass tableware, an Asprey selection will not disappoint.
