In just over two weeks’ I am going to be attending my very first wedding. Yes that’s right I’ve hit the age of 27 and have never been to a wedding before (not counting one when I was less than a year old). Most of my friends’ seem to be heading to them every month and finally, my time has come but the worrying thing is I have absolutely no idea what to wear. I’ve not developed that staple wedding dress which can be worn to any occasion with new people, and for someone who wears black 90% of the time the idea of wedding attire has me flummoxed. Of course, I can’t wear black, and for a summer wedding choosing the right outfit is key to make sure I don’t melt away throughout the day, that’s if the sun shows itself and for the day’s sake I hope it does.
As I have seemingly next to no time to shop for clothing I have resorted to online shopping and have probably bought about ten dresses online all of which have arrived and quickly been sent straight back because they’re not appropriate, don’t fit right or just look nothing like the photos on the website. Previously I’d never thought about wearing a maxi dress but after stumbling across some stunning ones on Coast I’ve settled that this, in fact, might be the perfect thing to wear. With a maxi dress, you don’t have to worry about being inappropriate and showing too much flesh, they can be pretty cool but also cover your legs if it’s getting a bit chilly and with all the beautiful colours and floral designs, they’re absolutely perfect for the time of year.
I have narrowed down a few dresses which you can see in the image at the top but I’m really not sure which design to go for so I might have to do the age old buy five, hope I don’t fall in love with them all and then return the rest.
Do you have a go-to wedding outfit you wear?
