Dress to Impress at your Friend's Wedding

With a little one running about the place, you will hardly have the time to shop, least of all for a wedding. Often something you may wear just the once, it can seem like a like waste of money to say the least. However, when it comes to a spring/summer affair, there are so many other options that you adapt and wear again. From versatile tea dresses to formal printed trousers, your new wedding outfit can become a staple in your summer wardrobe. 
You’ve helped your close friend through the wedding prep, you deserve to treat yourself. Whilst she used to organise everything about her wedding from the guest plan to the suppliers, the outfit is something that is purely down to you. Planning the Big Day has always been an uphill battle and these tools have made life so much easier. But when it comes to what YOU’RE going to wear, that’s a whole different ballgame. You could be the top fashionista, Victoria Beckham even, and still be stumped in terms of wedding day style. 
Here are 3 thrifty tips to looking your best on your best mate’s Big Day... 
Wear WHITE... 
The theory of not wearing white is an old-fashioned myth that can be immediately discarded. As long as you’re not wearing your own wedding dress complete with veil, a simple white summer dress can look flawless with amazing bright accessories. As many of us are just starting to prepare for our holidays, you’ll find plenty of affordable options on the high street from knee length tea dresses complete with simple floral designs to bohemian maxis teamed with your favourite straw hat. These options ARE acceptable for your friend’s wedding and is an easy way to look smart casual.

Plenty of Prints  Tropical style prints make an appearance every year and 2014 is no exception. Investing in some now and you will find that you will continue wearing year after year. One trend in particular that is versatile yet striking is printed trousers. I’ve seen lots in H&M for as little as £13 and you will be surprised with how much they suit you regardless of your size and shape. The great thing about printed trousers is you can keep the rest of the outfit simple; let that print do the talking! A simple white blouse and delicate gold jewellery completes the look and you keep comfortable and cool throughout the day. But it doesn’t need to end there. If you have a plain dress that needs revamping, simply grab some printed accessories. Leopard print, tropical or paisley, any will complete you look. 
Monopolise Monochrome  A slick and chic option to wedding day outfit woes is to head down the monochrome route. If you’re looking to make a fashion statement, this is perfect. The majority of the crowd will be in their summertime pastels, whilst you in a contrast of white and black, will stand out from the crowd. I loved Marc Jacobs 2014/2015 catwalk here he merged monochrome with elaborate art deco patterns. Marks and Spencer have the perfect version; black and white maxi with fitted waist, ideal for weddings. Team yours with bold chunky jewellery in just one colour. 
Expensive, formal dresses are out and unique, casual style is in! Many weddings have adopted the casual way of thinking in recent years, and what a relief. And remember, this calls for looser fitting and yuo know what that means; an extra slice of cake!
