Here comes Part II of the ‘Dress Code Decoder’ Feature, all about Garden Weddings. Sometimes garden weddings trip up guests who interpret it as laid back and end up looking casual and out of place. However I recommend that for summer garden weddings, you want to look just as lovely as the flowers around you. To look your best at a garden wedding, I suggest you try to look elegant and remember that there is a fine line between understated and casual.
Although garden weddings can still be dressy affairs – sequinned, beaded and body con dresses can simply be too much. Opt instead for feminine cuts of dresses and bright colours. Slip into this chic sheath dress whose vibrant green colour will look right at home at a garden summer wedding.
Comfort and practicality really is essential at a garden wedding! There is nothing worse than ruining a brand new stiletto from it sinking into the grass, so you can still look stylish just be that little bit more practical by opting for a chunky heel or a wedge. Your feet will thank you for it!
Remember that your outfit planning doesn’t stop at the dress!
Makeup, hair and accessories can make or break your look.
Keep your makeup looks just like how you’re dressing – simple, understated but still feminine and elegant.
For a garden wedding, a clear, dewy complexion will be your best friend.
You can add a subtle smokey eye and some lipgloss – but remember you’re heading to a garden not a night out on the town!
The Hair –
For garden weddings go for tousled waves for a relaxed vibe. Nothing to harsh or high maintenance. If it is a bit hotter and you want your hair out of your face, a fresh high pony or fishtail braid would look divine!
For accessories, neutral tones and timeless pieces will work perfectly at finishing off this natural and elegant look. Keep your jewels to a minimum, for garden weddings remember what Coco Chanel once said – simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.
It is 100% Italian Leather and the perfect size to take you from a day time ceremony to the reception later in the night!
Neutral, classic and timeless – this watch ticks all the essentials when it comes to classy wedding guest dressing. The Ross Rino watches are my personal favourite – they are such classic pieces that integrate so well into different styles and looks.
