Dress code: what to wear to a spring wedding
So you've scored an invite to a spring wedding. Lucky you! There's nothing like celebrating love surrounded by family and friends in the sunshine. However, you've just got to overcome one small hurdle first: decoding the dress code!
Choosing the perfect outfit for a wedding can be difficult, and will usually have you sending options back and forth and asking for urgent help from your best girlfriends in a group text.
Never fear! There are four usual suspects when it comes to spring wedding themes – garden, beachside, rustic and formal – and they can be equally fun to dress for, especially if you take a look at our key SS18 trends.
Tie your look into the rustic theme with two of spring's big trends – modern florals and sheer fabrics.
It's a garden party for a reason! Florals are a safe bet, but if you're feeling like something a little different, opt for bold stripes and bright prints.
A formal affair
If you always reach for black, a good alternative is burgundy or metallics. They're just as chic, appropriate for spring occasions and super fashion-forward. Exaggerated sleeves and deconstructed shoulders are another key SS18 trend that will work well here!
By the seaside
Relax into a beachside or destination wedding with robes or kimonos, fun brights and folkinspired pieces with rope detail or embroidery.
