What Should I Wear to a Spring Wedding?

Have you been invited to a spring wedding but are worried about your wardrobe? This is the perfect chance to try out some of the latest trends from the catwalk and turn heads on the big day! Avoid falling into the trap of wearing the same old dress and hat to all the weddings this year and try a few of these fashion forecasts out for size. 

The Seventies

Release your inner hippie because the 'Feel Good' decade is back. This time around, no need to subject yourself to polyester suits or Farrah Fawcett hair. Instead, take your inspiration from the bright colours and flowing fabrics to make this look your own.

There’s no better place to wear a breezy boho dress than a spring wedding, especially if the event is held in the country or has a rustic theme. Florals are always popular in springtime, but how about trying clashing florals for a modern edge? 

If you aren’t eager to embrace the seventies too enthusiastically, try out the trend by adding some suede to your outfit – try a handbag, a jacket or shoes in the trendy fabric. 

 

Yellow

It’s easy to be intimidated by the colour yellow, but finding the right shade for your skintone couldn’t be more simple– canary, marigold and amber were all seen on the 2015 catwalks. 

While bolder shades were used to brighten up the catwalk, Naeem Khan used yellow as a feature colour in his Spring / Summer collection, and added a black blazer draped over the shoulders as a transition piece from winter to the warmer months. 

The fashion-forward wedding guest doesn’t just think of the sunshine shade as a colour for their dress. A pair of yellow shoes or sandals is an easy way to nod to the trend. Adding a handbag in the colour will give a retro feel reminiscent of the seventies, or use eyeshadow for perfectly gilded lids. 

 

Black and white

It’s a tale as old as time, and this year the catwalks were flooded with this classic combo once more. The good news is that there are a million ways to wear this trend, but remember to include lots of black – otherwise you run the risk of upstaging the bride.

Whether you choose stripes, houndstooth or a tribal print, designers created new twists to modernise the look. Thakoon added fringe and colour accents to create a look perfect for a spring wedding, and guests can also mix prints to create a perfect outfit for any spring wedding attendee.

Monochromatic style may seem foreign for a spring wedding, but this trend will allow a wedding guest to let their accessories and makeup take centre stage. Thakoon let bright orange stilettos add a splash of colour, and wedding guests could also wear a hat in a contrasting shade to make the trend their very own. 

Sheer

Gone are the days when bridal party and guests alike had to cover up for church weddings – with weddings taking place in different venues and locations, guests can feel free to wear whatever they choose. The current trend for sheer fabric is the perfect trend for a spring wedding. 

That being said, guests can layer under sheer fabrics for a more modest look, as seen at Bottega Veneta’s Spring/Summer collection. The volume and drama created by this outfit is perfect for a friend’s wedding, and will take you from day to night with ease. 

Utilise sheer fabrics as part of your outfit, as the fabric of your blouse, or as a skirt – take inspiration from Tom Ford, who used sheer panels in his shows this year. Whether feminine and flirty or dark and dangerous, sheer is one way of incorporating your favourite colours and silhouette into your outfit without sacrificing style.
