Tips For Choosing A Wedding Guest Outfit For A Summer Wedding In The UK

As we approach the summer, the season of weddings is just around the corner. Around now is the time you’ll likely be sorting your outfit if you haven’t already. Summer weddings can be tricky, particularly in the UK, as you just don’t know what the weather is going to be. You want to look good, feel comfortable and also be prepared for a sudden downpour or scorching heat. In this article we take a look at some top tips to help you plan what you’re going to wear and give some inspiration that’s sure to help you on the day. Keep reading to find out more.

Layer up

When it comes to choosing your outfit for a summer wedding, you want to layer up. If you’re wearing a dress, think of a lightweight cover up you can have over your shoulders that won’t look out of place, but can give you a bit of protection if it’s chilly or the rain does start. If you’re wearing a suit, such as a double breasted suit, you can wear a waistcoat underneath to add an extra layer should you wish, but this can be taken off later on or if it’s warm.

Choose your fabrics carefully

The fabrics you wear can make a big difference in your comfort. If the sun is shining and it’s hot, you’re going to want a fabric that shouldn’t leave sweat marks or make you feel too warm. Opt for cotton, hemp or linen. All of these are moisture wicking and will help to keep you cool. Take a look on places such as Pinterest to find some outfit inspiration that should ensure you look your best but also feel it no matter what the weather is! Synthetic fabrics such as nylon or polyester can make you sweat more as they trap heat which can be very uncomfortable!

Think about your shoes

As well as your main clothing pieces, you want to think about the shoes you wear. If you’re going to a wedding that will be outside, shoes with a stiletto heel aren’t such a good idea as they can quickly sink into the mud – particularly if it has rained recently and the ground is damp! You should look for a block heel with a strap to help keep your shoes on. You also want to wear in any new shoes before the big day to avoid any blisters or pain!

These are just a few top tips that should help you when choosing a wedding guest outfit for a summer wedding in the UK. It’s always a good idea to also find out the colours that the bridesmaids are wearing, as you don’t want to end up looking like you’re matching them! Weddings are great fun and a chance to get dressed up, so make the most of it! What are some top tips you have for choosing a wedding guest outfit for a UK wedding?
