– not too tight as you will be wearing it
for many hours

    For The curvier Figure,

    you should make sure the jacket is not too short but covers your hips to create a longer silhouette.

  • *

    If you are petite,

    then a more fitted shorter jacket can look stunning and will extenuate your trim figure.

  • *

    A long jacket

    worn over a straight dress is flattering for just about every type of figure, and is brilliant for disguising a larger bottom or thick waist.

    A Sleeveless shift dress with a jacket

    is always a popular choice because you can take the jacket off later in the evening when things begin to warm up.
    Take along a matching wrap to cover your shoulders if you are self-conscious about your upper arms. Alternatively, select an outfit with a short-sleeved dress and jacket. We have many alternatives in our store.

    How to look your best.

    You will want to look elegant, and slightly understated, rather than trendy. Make sure your outfit doesn’t clash with the brides outfit or with what the other mother is wearing.

TIP: Try to match your shoes and bag -

this gives a total elegant look

  • *

    Choose your outfit,

    in a colour that suits your hair and your complexion. Keep in mind the colours of the other people in the bridal party, but you have to be happy with the final look and not everyone suits the colours that are suggested by our Brides.

    Hats/Fascinators

    for those who wish to wear a hat, select one that complements your outfit. Make sure is is worn on the crown not on the back of your head. Many ladies opt for a fascinator rather than a hat, one that either fits in with the colours of your outfit or your accessories.

  • *

    Wear comfortable shoes

    and choose a complementary hand bag. There is no need to try to match all your accessories perfectly, this can look too contrived. Make sure your stockings are not too dark and complement the colour of your outfit.

  • *

    Accessorize

    with classic jewellery and simple make-up.

    And Finally.

    Try on the whole ensemble before the wedding and ask a friend to take a photograph, so you can see the final effect and make any adjustments if necessary in plenty of time.
