In my head, picking something new to a wedding is the most fun thing. But OH you can wear lace and florals and colour and feel like a princess and ooh cute clutch and ahh sparkly heels and brb just going to audition to be Cinderella.
The reality is a bit more like OH FUCK.
You’re either worrying that the three-course meal will leave you with a gunt bigger than Jupiter, panicking that hang the flippety flip on DO YOU LOOK LIKE YOU’RE TRYING TO BE A BRIDESMAID? or megz anxious that old people will be whispering about why you’re wearing a beach dress to something so fancy.
Or if you weren’t thinking any of those things, HI.
Soz a bit.
I have one wedding this year and I’m considering a few options – that I’M A LEMON yellow lace H&M dress (although is the style too bridal?), a Chi Chi London circle skirt dress so I can feel all ladylike (but is that too bridesmaid-y?) or maybe something chic and lace in black. Teamed with a red lip and sunglasses like I think I’m a celeb. BUT CAN YOU WEAR BLACK TO A WEDDING?
So here are some options.
Just FYI if you go heavy on the weight machines and have some I’ve been in Thailand since 2012 tan, then maaaaate, get yo ass into number 4 with a matching lipstick and strappy gold heels. I die.
OH and just on a final note, if you’re skint but still want something that feels a little bit sexier on the skin than a Primark number – get yourself all over eBay. I once snapped up the dreamiest teal maxi dress for £50 that would originally have been five times that price. YES, I looked like a bridesmaid, but I look on fleek too, so whatevs.
