How to dress for summer weddings
Wedding season is almost upon us, and with all the excitement about a certain royal affair brewing, we're thinking about what we'll wear when that invite drops on our doormat. Whether you've been invited to a big white wedding in the country, a grown-up city celebration, or you're looking for styles with a regal touch, we've got just what you need to make an entrance.

A country wedding
A country wedding is the perfect opportunity to go all out on bold print and colour. Choose vibrant florals and foliage prints in fluid shapes that allow for ease of movement (and some serious dancing later). Add a mini bag to keep all of your must-haves - and tissues - close to hand and throw on metallic sandals for extra glamour.

A city wedding
A city summer wedding is a laidback affair. Look for fun, expressive pieces that will have a life long after the big event. Step out of your dresses comfort zone and try a chic suit or jumpsuit. Top of our list? A colourful co-ord in vibrant pink or on-trend tropical prints. What's even better, they can easily be restyled for dinner dates and work - just swap your heels for statement flats. And on the big day? Go for seriously comfy mules.
A royal affair
Nothing excites us quite like a royal romance. In the midst of all the speculation and visions of a fairy-tale dress, we're starting to plan what to wear when we get our invite. The answer is of course, in the true royal spirit, a day dress and a hat. Never styled a hat before? Our advice is to keep the rest of your look pared-back. Alternatively, try an oversized fascinator to begin with and when the final weddings arrive, you'll be ready for a full blown occasion hat.
