Numerous couples were forced to abandon, postpone or adapt their wedding plans last year, but many also enjoyed an unexpected silver lining to Covid restrictions: the new micro-wedding format eased the pressures (financial and emotional), on nuptials, and encouraged couples to reconsider what makes a meaningful wedding.
For at least part of this year, couples have once again enjoyed the freedom of planning unrestricted ceremonies, be they micro or macro. And guests, no matter how big or small the wedding, are even more excited than usual about looking their best on a friend’s big day.
Of course, when it comes to a winter wedding, outfit planning gets a little trickier. What coat do you wear over your dress? Or is a slick trouser suit the way to go? We suggest you seek out jewellery brand Motley for styles that won’t be spotted anywhere else in the pews, and revisit the disco glamour of a platform Mary-Jane heel courtesy of Miu Miu. Carry a Roop, Kara or Giarite bag, and compliments will fly at the reception.
As for dresses, Reformation and De la Vali have the monopoly on slinky silhouettes, and Norma Kamali is enjoying a revival. If you’re not the dress-wearing type, pull off a power move in AZ Factory’s electric blue silk skirt set, or Gucci’s printed trouser suit instead. Here’s a curated edit of the best winter wedding guest outfits (and their attendant accessories) to shop now.
