A Marriage Made In Heaven??

Hi Gals, any of you out there with a wedding's to go to soon? Wedding dressing can be blissful, if you have a clear idea of what you want to achieve from your look. The path to finding a dress that will flatter and give you the confidence that you look elegant with out looking so understated that you end up looking just plain drab, can be a bit of rocky path.With this in mind, for all you would be wedding guest party gals out there, I have cherry picked some of  my favourite vintage looks from the wonderful poshgirlvintage.com Whilst throwing in a few fail safe wedding style tips along the way, to ensure your wedding guest outfit is a great success!


Raffia is a huge trend this season

Simple styling works best, keep your bust under wraps, with pretty faux wrap styles

                                             There are nude coloured dresses everywhere right now, but for those wishing to be a little more adventurous in their wedding attire, opt for clean lines and and inject some colour and pattern, save the nudes, for your shoes, guaranteed to give you more than one wear through the summer! Adds inche's to your leg length to boot!  

Finish with a sweet straw bag that shouts country garden inocent, keep jewellery minimal and makeup and hair simple.

 Adorable sailor stripe 50s dress with large fob watch print at the hem and a tie belt with life like, key embelishment on the belt! 

If you opt for a vintage dress, don't be afraid of accessorising with modern piece's or piece's from different periods


This shape is so flattering for hourglass or pear shapes

Flattering  pattern, simple shape, high necks are great for small busted gal's. Top Style Tip-  avoid wearing lace or any shade of white on its own, this is reseved for the bride only

How adorable is this silk handpainted shift dress?

I had to finish with this floaty pink sorbet, polka dot number

Just incase you miss out on the wedding cake, it happens! Hop over to the lovely Dollie from chroniclesofdolliedaydream, she is holding a bake off competition and giveaway, which sounds like alot of fun.!
