Ahh we love a good wedding, don’t you? As spring has now officially sprung, we’re getting excited for all the new season will bring, especially getting back out there and sharing special occasions with loved ones. Perhaps it’s your big day coming up? You’re part of the bridal party? Or you’re going to be a guest at the wedding? Whatever you’re looking for, we’re here to help with outfit inspiration, wedding day beauty and hair and a selection of fantastic gifts to choose from. Take a look…
The all-important outfit
Treating yourself to a new dress is always exciting! We just love this elegant Orla design from Finery. It’s made from easy-to-wear jersey fabric, offering a comfortable feel and a flattering look, and with a smart long-sleeved design and chic pleated detail down the front, this piece is a real classic you’ll wear for years to come.
Another Finery gem is this Jolene dress we simply adore. Featuring a pretty print and puffed short sleeves, it’s really feminine and will look great for a wedding. If it’s chilly, just add a wrap or short jacket to add instant elegance.
If dresses aren’t your thing, why not try a stylish jumpsuit for the special day? They’re so easy to pull on and comfortable too. This Dannii Minogue petite design features a colourful hummingbird print that really pops, and the gorgeous wrap-over design and tie waist make this oh so stylish! It comes in a regular size too, so you can find the perfect fit.
This Ruth Langsford jumpsuit is another winner too. The collar and belted waist really give it a smart finish that’s perfect for a wedding. It comes in classic black or animal prints too, if you fancy something to show off your wild side!

Best foot forward
A classic block heel sandal is a great option for a wedding, giving you the style and height you want in a pair of heels, but with the added comfort of a sturdy block heel to keep you going all day (you have to be able to dance in them right?). We just can’t get enough of these Mirello sandals from Moda in Pelle. The peep-toe design will look great with dresses or skirts as well as trousers.
Or if you’re looking for a pair with a lower heel then go for these court shoes from Rieker that are so easy to slip on and come in soft pastel shades.
For an alternative to heels, try out these super stylish loafers from Moda in Pelle. We love the chic tassel detail and they come in a range of vibrant block colours or striking snake print to match with whatever outfit you choose.
Accessories to finish your look
To complement your wedding day outfit, you’ll need the right bag and we think this Liverpool Street multiway design from Radley London is perfect. It’s made from gorgeous soft leather and has two handles and a detachable cross-body strap so you can carry it your way!
This Arlington Court bag from Radley is also fabulous. It has lots of compartments inside to keep your make-up, money and other essentials close to hand and you can choose from a variety of chic colours. We love the croc finish options that really give it an edge.
How about brightening up a simple block colour dress or jacket with a striking print? This Dannii Minogue scarf does the job rather nicely. It has a bright, colourful finish with a snake print that adds a fresh contemporary twist to any outfit.
If the sun is shining for you on the big day, then reach for these clever JPE Fitover Sunglasses. With a chic vintage design, they simply slot over your regular prescription glasses, offering UVA and UVB protection.
A touch of sparkle is a must-have for a wedding day look. We just adore these beautiful diamond stud earrings. They feature a pretty flower design and would be ideal for a bridal look or to pair with any wedding day outfit.
For an absolute show-stopper and real investment piece, opt for this truly spectacular AAAA tanzanite and diamond ring. It’s made from platinum and features a bold design that will really get you noticed. We also love this sweet twisted band ring from Diamonique, offering a more subtle look.
Wedding day hair and make-up
Getting your make-up right for the special day is so important. You’ll want a look that lasts all day but doesn’t leave you feeling overly made up, so make sure you take the time to choose carefully.
Start with your base and look no further than this fantastic all-in-one moisturiser, concealer and foundation from Tarte. It’ll help to leave your skin feeling hydrated all day, giving your complexion a radiant finish.
Estee Lauder’s cult classic Double Wear Foundation is a must-have for your make-up bag. It has a matte, budge-resistant finish and it’ll last all day. Winner!
Concealer and mascara are always essentials in any make-up routine, so why not try this Shape Tape Concealer from Tarte and Benefit’s Roller Lash Mascara for lashes you’ll want to flutter all night long!
Make sure your manicure is looking on point for the big day with this gorgeous collection from Perfect Formula. Featuring Gel Coats, Manicure Booster and a crystal file too, it has you covered with everything you need.
Give your hair a bit of pampering in the lead up to the wedding, with this superb Tweak’d collection. It includes a host of pampering treatments to make sure your locks are looking their absolute best.
Gifts they’ll treasure
Picking out the perfect gift can be tricky. Do you go for something for their home, a keepsake or something more personal?
We love this beautiful crystal tea-light holder and trinket box from the JM by Julien Macdonald collection. They’re so elegant and will look great in any home. Something they’ll keep for years to come.
If the happy couple are keen cooks, take a look at this three-piece knife set from Sabatier. They’re an essential in any kitchen and will last a lifetime.
These fabulous storage trunks from the BundleBerry by Amanda Holden range are just gorgeous. In an elegant velvet finish, they’d make the perfect wedding gift and will look wonderful in any home. We’ll take them in every colour please!
