To make the most of your purchase, consider a dress you’ll get plenty of wear out of and is versatile for all occasions.

Dress for the season

Dressing for the season of the wedding is very important. You don’t want to be wearing a something that is too heavy or form fitting in the middle of summer only to be left boiling and uncomfortable while waiting 3 hours for the bride to arrive! Light dresses in fabrics such as bamboo and cotton are perfect for those warmer days because they are lightweight, breathable and able to keep you fresh and cool throughout the day. Whereas thicker fabrics and long sleeves are perfect for looking chic while providing extra warmth during autumn and winter. Consider the shape and flow of the dress you are searching for. After all, luxury isn’t luxurious if you don’t feel great wearing it! Choose a dress you feel confident and comfortable in.

Time and location

Part of dressing for a wedding means taking the time and the location into account. For a daytime wedding, you may opt for lighter colour fabrics whereas an evening wedding may require darker and more formal colours.
