With wedding season around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what gifts to buy those happy couples and, more importantly, what to wear to the weddings yourselves.
There are a wonderful range of gifts and choices that you can get for the bride and groom to show how happy you are for them. Whether you want to give them some pampering, something for fun or a piece of homeware to help start their lives together, there’s something to suit anyone’s taste.
Homeware pieces are always great gifts to give and a pretty and personal vase filled with flowers or even some colourful and quirky doormats are a great way to help out the newlyweds as they make their new home together. An easy gift for any couple is a kitchen appliance: the likes of kettles, toasters and coffee makers are all useful things that the couple can use for a while. You could even get a few printed cushions to give their home a more personal and cosy atmosphere. Something cute and useful for the house will be much appreciated in the years to come.
You can’t go wrong with the classic present: pretty flowers. If the couple is someone close to you, you can find out their favourite flowers – be it roses, daisies or tulip’s – select a pretty colour and arrange for them to either be delivered to them the morning of the wedding or bring them directly. Flowers have the power to brighten up any day and will be bound to put a smile on the receivers face.
In regards to what to wear, there are so many occasion dresses online so whatever your colour, you’re bound to find something to suit you and your personality. Whether it’s a summer wedding or a winter wedding, the possibilities are endless and there are styles to suit any needs; maxi, mini, sleeveless or even one for the hen night! While advisable not to wear white, a light yellow or blush pink dress will be perfect for a weeding guest to wear. High-low and asymmetrical dresses are also another huge trend this season so will be the perfect choice for any upcoming summer wedding. They have a stunning summer feel to them and the flowy design will be a winner.
Once you have the dress sorted, all you have to do is finalise the look with some matching accessories. You’ll, of course, need a matching clutch, heels and some bling in the form of sparkly jewellery. Weddings are the perfect time to up your glam game and break the rules of day to day dressing, so you can get away with wearing more glittery and embellished pieces. Diamante heels or sequins clutches are all common practice. Wedding fashion is all about having fun and pushing the boundaries!
So there you have it, the perfect guide to getting you through the upcoming wedding season!
