The wedding special is here!

Every Spring, I write a little something about what to wear to a wedding, seeing as there are at least two or three of my friends looking for a new outfit for such an occasion each year... I've written about the styling rules for a well-behaved guest in the past, but this year I'm focusing on how to buy a great outfit on a budget. I know I have a thing for luxe fashion however I will prove today that it is possible to find a wonderful wedding guest outfit, no matter what your budget is!

First off, let me start by saying that obviously, the most budget-friendly outfit is the one you arrange from within your existing closet but where is the fun in that? At least once a season we all want to feel like a princess, with a brand spanking new tenue, don't we?

Under £100
For the student on a budget with a great sense of pizzaz but a wallet as slim as her waist
Dress, Mango
Earrings, Accessorize
Clutch, Zara
Sandals, Boohoo

Under £300
For the jetsetter guest who has spent a fortune on the wedding gift and the travel for this destination wedding, and now has to be thrifty...!
Dress, Reiss
Fascinator, Accessorize
Clutch, Accessorize
Shoes, Mango

Under £500
This fashionista likes to mix investment pieces with high street, and has got the whole "re-wear" thing to a T, so a designer dress won't be a one-off splurge...
Shoes, Mango

So, ladies, what do you think of these budget-conscious outfits? Any good? Do you have a wedding guest dilemma that I can help you solve? xxx
