Nothing poses a style challenge like a wedding invitation. First, you’ve got to uncover the theme of the big day, and then solve the mystery of the colour scheme. After all, no one wants to turn up to a wedding in the exact shade of blush pink as the bridesmaids. If you’ve been invited to a classic big white wedding this summer, there are five essential facets to consider before you leave the house. A wedding might not be your big day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it as a chance to shine…
The conversation starter
When you’re seated next to the bride’s second cousin twice removed at the reception, its’s essential to have some intriguing conversation starters in your clutch bag. The Vamp London signature mask is our talisman of individuality and speaks of someone who is confident and multi-faceted. Our sumptuous Hidden Mask necklaces speak volumes with elaborate swirls of cubic zircona, but they also represent keeping your inner most thoughts secret. Shop the collection and make your jewellery the ultimate conversation starter.
The contemporary headpiece
Hats can be beautiful or brash, which means proceeding with caution. A contemporary design, like the Coast Amelie Fascinator is in a beautiful dove grey colour, which means it will blend well no matter what you’re wearing. If you’re wearing a floral gown, accessorise with the pretty Frances Ivory silk and chiffon hair flower clip, or go all out sparkling vintage in the Millicent comb by Victoria Fergusson. Both are available from Liberty in Love.
The subtle, seductive AND stylish dress
A wedding outfit should blend subtly into the background and have a modern, fashion-forward edge. Trying to find this combination in one beautiful dress is always a challenge, which is why we look to Whistles, Reiss, Maje, Finery, LK Bennett and Cos for answers. This Whistles wedding guest edit is perfect!
The all-day long make-up glow
Tears during the service and dancing the night away can wreak havoc on your make-up. But instead of cramming your lipstick and eyeliner into your clutch, take a tactical powder palette instead. The Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow will mattify shine and give you a perfect ethereal shimmer. Match this with the Charlotte Tilbury Mini Miracle Eye Wand to get rid of those tell-tale panda eyes after a round of the Macarena.
The finishing touches
A big white wedding outfit isn’t complete without some sumptuous jewellery. If you’re determined to catch the bouquet, our Silver Lucky Hearts bracelet could give you the edge you need to be next down the aisle. If you want to show off the edgier side of your personality, stack our Vamp London Attitude bangle with the matching V ring and ear cuffs, or opt for one of our signature Vamp Mask necklaces – your talisman of secret-keeping and individuality.
However you adorn your wedding guest style this season, remember to #myvamp and show us how you wore it!
