After more than a year of will they, won’t they, weddings have been firmly back on the agenda in 2023 – but now we’re heading into a new season, what on earth do you wear? As always, Zara has an abundance of choices to suit every guest.
If you’re attending a summer wedding and want to look gorgeous without feeling hot and uncomfortable, I can offer some dress suggestions. Summer weddings are in vogue these days, so it’s important to find a dress that suits the occasion and the weather.
A firm Wear Next favourite, Zara is our go-to for high street garments that look luxury.
When it comes to weddings, there are so many awkward rules to abide by, like wearing ‘tasteful’ gowns (whatever that means), dressing theme-appropriate and of course, not wearing white.
They don’t sound too complicated, but it’s always when you’re looking that you can never find anything to wear.
Fear not; I’ve found a bunch of beautiful gowns from Zara’s new in section that can double up as wedding guest dresses and a regular going-out dress all year round. What makes them so special is that none of them are dull or too trend-led, meaning they’ll last for years.
Some weddings don’t allow you to wear black, but if you ever get to attend one that does, I found a couple of options that are great for the occasion and beyond.
There are many printed pieces too, so if you’re not one to shy from something bold, you’re going to find a loud, vibrant one that’s perfect for you.
Interested? Here are 15 I’ve already bookmarked — you definitely should save them too.
