Top outfits to prepare for summer weddings as lockdown restrictions ease
As we travel along the Government’s roadmap for exiting lockdown, we can start turning our attention to upcoming events and actually making some plans – not least summer weddings.
12 April meant that weddings could take place with up to 15 people in attendance, and this increased to 30 people on 17 May. By 21 June, we may be in a position where there are no restrictions on numbers.
All this means that – hopefully – many of us will get to celebrate a marriage with friends and family at least once this summer. So, with non-essential shops having reopened this month, what better excuse for a shopping trip than treating yourself to a new wedding outfit.
Here are some of our favourites…
Lavish Alice cowl front bandeau midi pencil dress in sage – ASOS
This gorgeous sleeveless midi dress from ASOS is perfect for any summer wedding.
Stylish, smart and in a beautiful sage, dressing to impress has never been so straightforward. At £75, it’s not going to break the bank either.
Short Sleeve Tuck Front Shell Top – Coast
Coast never fails to come up trumps when you’re looking for a fancy outfit.
This short sleeve top, available in ivory, red or black, is perfect for those who aren’t keen on a dress, but still want to look the part.
At the sale price of £33.75, the top can easily be paired with smart trousers or a fancy skirt and is perfect for a range of occasions, so you’re sure to get plenty of wear out of it.
Cabana sleeveless skater dress – Ted Baker
Ideal for a hot, outdoors summer wedding, this colourful floral number is certain to turn heads.
Even better, it’s been reduced from £139 to just £69 in the sale, so really it would be rude not to!
Wide Leg Wrap Over Jumpsuit – Silkfred
We were wowed by this jumpsuit. Simple yet classy and stylish, it’s perfect for a number of occasions, from date night to summer weddings.
The gold detailing of the belt sets it off perfectly and it’s ideal for pairing with a snazzy pair of heels. At just £32, you can’t really go wrong.
Three-piece slim-fit suit in virgin-wool serge – Hugo Boss
This may not be the cheapest option on the market, but if you’re looking for a new suit and want to go all-out, this stunning blue number from Hugo Boss is a must.
For a cool £745, this contemporary and classy three-piece suit will certainly make you stand out from the crowd.
ASOS Design wedding super skinny cotton blazer in camel – ASOS
A summer wedding calls for bright, stand-out colours and that’s certainly what you’ll get with this camel blazer from ASOS.
At just £18.05 in the sale, it’s a great choice for pairing with a light shirt and eye-catching trousers.
Navy tie with rainbow embroidered design – Etsy
This Etsy shop, Frederick Thomas Ties, has a number of interesting tie designs, not least this rainbow option.
At £19.99, it’s ideal for summer civil partnerships, same-sex marriages or simply for spreading some light and joy at whatever summer wedding you’re planning to attend.
Men’s Honour of Scotland Purple Tartan Value Kilt – Tartanista
If a stuffy, formal suit trouser combo isn’t really hitting the spot as you plan your wedding guest outfit, why not go for something completely different and don a traditional Scottish kilt?
Bagpipes or no bagpipes, a kilt is perfectly acceptable wedding attire. If you’re still hedging your bets, this option from Tartanista comes in at just £16.95.
