Wedding Guest On A Budget

Wedding season is in full swing!

In a couple of weeks I’m heading off to France for another couple of friend’s three day long nuptial extravaganza.

I can’t wait to see the lovebirds say “I Do”, I can’t wait for the food, the wine, the dancing, all of it!

Weddings are the most wonderful excuse to all get together and celebrate love.

It’s also a wonderful reason to dust off those dancing shoes and get dressed up!

Though anyone experiencing a rash of friends getting married all at once, may find it a little tough on the wallet.

I thought I’d hunt out a few of the best high-street finds which can be mixed with haute accessories or kept very simple.

More than just wedding outfits they can be worn all summer long and well into the next one.

If that’s not worth a swish, I don’t know what is!

Floral ruffle dress (a total Dolce dupe in fabulous structured cotton)

Basket bag // Nude heels

And the best of the rest…

I hope that helps some of your summer wardrobe planning!

I think you’ll agree, the highstreet really rose to the occasion this summer.

Funny to think that next year people will be getting dressed up for my very own wedding.

I still can’t quite get my head around it. As my nephew so eloquently put it on his 4th birthday last week… “I don’t feel like a grown up.”

Do you?

    Gorgeous Dress! I am obsessed with the style, fit, and prints!

    • Rosie

      Ditto, Rach!

  • That dress is gorgeous on you! I love how perfect it is for summer.

    Crazy how fast time flies. You will blink and your wedding day will be here. Savor each moment! Cherish each memory! And if I can give any advice, don’t let the planning or details stress you out. A wedding is only a few hours or so but a marriage is a lifetime!

      Thanks Shannon! I couldn’t agree more, not too stressed about the wedding. I’m sure it’ll turn out to be a lovely day and as long as the people we love are there – I’ll be happy!

  • I’m in love with these dresses! I’m not a big dress person but I’m now looking into buying at least one of these dresses.
    The dress that you’re wearing is equally amazing.

    • Rosie

      I’ll bring you over to the dark side eventually Maria, then you’ll want to wear dresses all summer long!

  • Beautiful post! That’s how I feel about the wedding as well, it is just so amazing to celebrate love!
    Much love xx
