There are many unwritten rules when it comes to dressing for a wedding. Certain colours and styles may be deemed as unacceptable, others may place you in a state of social exile (hint- that means no wearing white!) Luckily, we’ve put together some outfits that mean you can’t go wrong. Whether it’s set in a grand city hotel, or tucked away in a quiet country church, you’ll fit right in no matter what sort of wedding you are attending this summer.

The City Wedding
Likely to take place in the surroundings of a hotel, city hall or even a famous building, the city wedding typically portrays minimalist grandeur. City weddings tend to be more cosmopolitan and modern than that of a country church wedding, so guests can usually go a little bolder with their outfit choices, experimenting with brighter colours and a slightly bolder choice of accessories…
