Winter Wedding Guest Outfit Inspiration

 There's something traditional about having that pre-wedding panic that is not reserved just for the bride. Knowing that there will be photographers and videographers armed to capture every moment of the couple's big day, you want to be looking and feeling your best for any that you appear in. Perhaps it is in the hope that when you get snapped popping a tad-too-large canape into your mouth whilst also cradling a glass of Champagne, napkin and clutch bag, that people will see past to your fabulous dress instead! I spent an afternoon shopping (from my sofa, of course) some outfit options to take you from ceremony to dance floor as I, too, will be attending a December wedding this year. Watch out credit card, the online orders are about to sky-rocket...

This brand is top of mind at the moment since Mint Velvet kitted me out for a hen do recently. I'm a big fan of the slit on the leg and the higher neckline feels more appropriate vs. plunging for a wedding.

The fabric and the colour are bang on for Autumn/Winter vibes. Pop on a pashmina to keep those shoulders warm as you transition from venue to venue. I've been keeping my eye out for a trouser-suit in this colour with no luck so far but partner this jumpsuit with a tailored blazer and you're half-way there!

If winter was defined by a fabric, it would be velvet and this forest green jumpsuit looks the epitome of cosy-chic. As we know, weddings can be long days, sometimes in excess of 12 hours from I Do to Carriages, so a jumpsuit can be a savvy option to keep you looking sharp but feeling comfortable.

This forest green maxi dress is a more formal option and with a shimmery finish to sparkle amongst the congregation. The bow on this waistline is just adorable.

There's something 'dolls dress' about this one but I just love a statement shoulder and the ruching on the sleeves. Black and gold isn't perhaps your usual wedding colour palette but with Christmas nearing, it feels suitable celebratory. 

You know that post-wedding breakfast bloat that descends when all you want to do is nap and instead you have to listen to 2 hours of speeches and then get up on the dance floor. This dress and its flattering ruche around the mid-section should make for the perfect disguise to hide just how much wedding cake you've eaten. Again, longer-sleeves feel more appropriate, especially if you find yourself outside or in a church on a frosty afternoon.

I love the long-sleeve and high neck which seems suitable appropriate for the winter months plus the autumnal oxblood colour feels seasonal (although, as ever, check what the bridesmaids are wearing so you don't turn up in the same! Been there, done that!) Also available in a brighter red.

Now to go and start trying everything on.... wish me luck!!
