Steps For Choosing Your Outfit

Step 1

Let the bride tell you her wishes. She may or may not have preferences, but she and the groom set the tone for the event, so ask for her input as regard colours, and style. After all it is the bride’s day!

Enjoy the fact that someone else is thinking about how everything and everyone should look.

Step 2

Be yourself! Only you should decide what suits you, what you feel comfortable in and what compliments your figure. You can take others’ opinion on board sure, but at the end of the day it is such a special occasion, it must be an outfit for you, not to please others. You deserve to be stunning. And you will be!

Step 3

The venue must be considered, there is a certain etiquette required for a church wedding, usually a dress and jacket or dress and coat combination. Obviously, a wedding abroad can be a very different look, perhaps just a dress in a stunning colour, is it going to be somewhere warm?

In Ireland now a lot of weddings take place entirely in the hotel and venue, so again you can be more playful. Perhaps a stand alone statement dress would be right for that. These little details ensure that on the day you can concentrate on looking amazing, relaxing and enjoying your son or daughter’s special day!

Overall you want to be dressed elegantly, feel glamorous and be comfortable. The perfect outfit will be a winning combination of all three.
