It is one of the most important days of your life, so we understand that you want everything to be perfect – but don’t let the stress of planning your big day make you forget, this is also one of the happiest moments in life. Enjoy your wedding day, mishaps and all.
Once you have your date, location and bridesmaids in place, it’s time to begin the search for the perfect dress. The three looks below have been hand-selected to suit the most popular wedding destinations for this time of year.
Whether you love the thought of something classic and simple, or a beautiful vintage lace dress, be sure to take your location into consideration. After all, a heavily embellished gown may look out of place on a beach in the Bahamas, and leave you feeling flustered.
City weddings are all about simple, contemporary pieces with a touch of bling. Holding the ceremony in a church? This ivory Phase Eight wedding dress won’t look out of place in the most upmarket establishments. The elegant embroidery keeps the look simple and sophisticated, while the No.1 by Jenny Packham shoes and Alan Hannah Devoted tiara create a glamorous, modern feel. Top it off with a delicate silver bracelet and a nude lipstick for the ultimate city-chic look.
When we think of traditional weddings, we imagine friends and family, a beautiful manor in the country and let’s not forget about beautiful garden views. For these occasions, laced vintage-inspired dresses work best. Keep the whole look classic with these understated shoes, elegant earrings and a vintage bracelet.
For beach weddings, opt for something short and sweet and make a statement with glitzy accessories. These Dune shoes add a hint of glamour while not taking all the attention away from the dress. For this style of wedding, this embellished hair comb and statement earrings look beautiful with beachy-boho waves or a sleek up-do.
Once you’ve finalised all the little details like centrepieces, seating arrangements and the cake – it is up to you to make the most of your special day, and don’t forget to practise that first dance beforehand.
