The weather looks good for a Spring wedding

A couple of weekends ago a close friend of mine made her vows to her childhood sweetheart. I’d been planning for the day for months and was so excited, but since I was ill and missed her hen do I was feeling a bit glum. I was absolutely determined I would not miss the ceremony, so I wanted to find something to wear that felt comfortable and didn’t take too much effort to get in to, but still looked suitable for a Spring wedding.

The morning of the special day arrived and the weather couldn’t have been any more perfect. There were blue skies and gorgeous sunshine, with a gentle breeze blowing through the blossom trees. Although the sun was beaming, it still felt a bit chilly, so I wanted to pick an outfit that would keep the chill off but not look like I was dressed for the middle of Winter. In the January sales I had been browsing on Joules and found a beautiful long-sleeved floral dress, which I quickly fell in love with. It was the perfect choice to wear to the wedding and I got some lovely compliments from friends I saw at the Church.

Dress – Joules. Silver heart necklace – Next. Ring – Accessorize. Ballet pumps – Primark. Silver bag – Unknown as it’s so old!

I apologise for the slightly strange facial expression - it was rather sunny!

Do you have any weddings coming up this Spring? What would be your perfect outfit?

  1. Great post! I have a friends wedding in a couple of weeks :) I also missed her hen weekend due to M.E. so even more determined to get to the wedding! Not got a dress yet, also have a back up from my wardrobe if I can't get to the shops in time. Planning a shopping trip for next week though, inspiration is appreciated!

    1. Thank you Sarah! I really hope you're able to get to your friend's wedding - I managed to just stay for the vows, which are usually pretty near the beginning, so even if you can just manage that at least you'll have seen the most important bit! You'll have to let me know what you decide to wear in the end. There are so many gorgeous dresses out there at the moment. I'm having to restrain myself from buying them all!
