The bells are ringing in wedding season and we’ve put together three different looks to inspire your outfit for the big day.

Mother of the Bride
A very important invitee, the mum should wear a glamorous, age-appropriate outfit for her child’s special day. Dresses with a lace top applied on the upper part of the gown are a great way to add sophistication and also avoid a tight cut. Another tip here is to go for an option with at least a little bit of sleeve; it doesn’t have to be long, but some extra cloth covering the shoulders will look better than a sleeveless option. The colour can vary, just avoid black or white. Personal taste and the shades of the season are more important. Pale pink is a contemporary hue that looks great on any skin colour. Pick footwear with chunky heels and a round front for comfort – it will be a long day!

Here Comes the Bridesmaid
There are two kinds of brides, the ones that dream of bridesmaids wearing exactly the same dresses and those who prefer that they wear different designs and colours. If you are in the first category, picking an outfit that goes well with most body shapes is something that will be appreciated by your best friends, sisters and cousins. This number from BHS is a good choice; the belt at the waistline helps to create a good silhouette and the pleatted skirt, besides being loose rather than tight to the body, is also a trendy element. The extra draped detail in the top helps to hide any extra curve in the tummy area. The dress is full of good tricks and romance inspired.

The Stylish Friend
A variety of options are available here. Long gowns are only required if it’s an evening event in a fancy venue or requested on the invite. Knee-length dresses are the best pick when you don’t want to go wrong. We all know that black and white should be avoided; however, when together in graphic or flower patterns, they can transform the look into something contemporary and super trendy. Gold accessories go very well with each of the shades, so the metallic detail keeps working in this look. A dash of colour can add extra pizzazz when shopping for fascinators and footwear.
