Step Out in Style

With so many bridal fashion boutiques across the Cotswolds, wedding guests are spoilt for choice – here are some tips on making the right style decisions

Ceremonies and receptions around the Cotswolds may well take place outside, so with that in mind, think about your footwear. On uneven ground, stilettos could prove your undoing – consider wider block heels, kitten heels or flats.

Guests should never upstage the bride! Keep hemlines modest, stay away from too much sparkle, and don’t wear white! Use the venue as a guide – city weddings tend to be more formal, but if the couple is making the most of the beautiful Cotswolds countryside, then softer dresses are more appropriate, with floral designs being especially popular for spring and summer weddings. Don’t forget a matching wrap for when it gets chilly.

If you’re inundated with wedding invitations, look for an adaptable outfit rather than a finished ensemble. Wear something you can update with different shoes, jewellery or an alternative cover-up.

Remember, comfort is key too - weddings can last all day.
