The Perfect Wedding Guest Outfit For Every Type Of Ceremony

Brace yourself, folks: wedding season is upon us. While there's no doubting the fun you'll have (open bar, live band, all your loved ones in one room), let's not underestimate the pressure of being a guest at the ceremony. Booking valuable holiday time and spending hard-earned cash on the biggest day of your best friend's life can be trying but, usually, what fills us with most dread is figuring out what to wear.
Striking that fine balance between not breaking the bank and avoiding wearing the same get-up as everyone else can be a tricky art to master. And what's even appropriate these days? Are weddings still conservative and formal, or can we add a bit more character to our look?
Fear not – we've found the best pieces, from high street to designer, that will solve all of your matrimony miseries. From sunny "I do's" abroad, to the casual city union, click through to see our favourite wedding guest looks.
