Ah, summer weddings… the bubbles, the friends, the pretty frocks. Dress codes can be a minefield, but we’ve taken the hassle out of decoding all your wedding invites.
All-White Beach Wedding
Keep it breezy and light with a floaty, ethereal dress and delicate details, such as embroidery or beading. Stick to neutral or metallic accessories.
Beauty must-have: A shimmering tan
Classic Evening Wedding
You can’t go wrong with all-black – but give the look a fresh spin by wearing a classy jumpsuit instead of a dress. Punch it up with bright accessories.
Beauty must-have: A subtle smoky eye
Daytime Garden Wedding
No one wants to sink their new stilettoes into the grass, so for a summer garden wedding, pair a floral dress with classy flats. Think flowers and ruffles for ladylike charm.
Beauty must-have: A delicate floral scent
While black-tie means floor-sweeping formal, it doesn’t have to mean black. Live your princess dreams in a printed gown but keep it fresh with bold colours and interesting cuts. Keep accessories minimal.
Beauty must-have: A showstopper red lip
The Wedding Where You Don’t Know Anyone…
Smart casual is your friend, even if no one else at the wedding is. Keep it chic and understated, with classic yet wearable accessories.
Beauty must-have: Shiny hair
