Top Ten | Dresses for Wedding Guests

We do love a summer wedding. The warm nights, the beautiful locations, the blissful smiles on the faces of the happy couple…but as you get ready to put in appearances at many a joyous celebration, a niggling panic takes hold: wedding-guest fashion is a tricky issue. It’s all about looking enticing enough to make an impression, all while steering clear of looking like you’re trying to upstage the bride (no white!) Throw in the tricky British summer weather and you’ve got yourself a wardrobe dilemma. But fear not, this week’s top ten is all about being the best-dressed wedding guest. Take a look at our most stylish picks.
