A Shopping Guide to Wedding Guest Dresses

Everybody loves a wedding. As well as being a chance to catch up with friends and family, it is a great opportunity to dress up for the guests as well as the happy couple. Most wedding guests treat themselves to a special outfit.

Shopping for wedding guest clothes can be fun, as you get to try on something a bit different and spend a bit more than you might normally do. However, because you are likely to be spending more money on your outfit you’ll want to make sure that it is just right. To help you to do this we have put together these simple wedding guest outfit shopping tips to help you find that perfect outfit.

Allow yourself enough time

One mistake people often make is leaving things to the last minute. When you are buying a special outfit this isn’t a great idea. Sometimes you can be lucky and find something that you like after just a few hours shopping. However, this doesn’t always happen and you can end up last minute panic buying (we’ve all been there!). Or even if you find the right outfit, you can still struggle to find the accessories that you need if you haven’t left enough time. [CLICK TO READ MORE]

Sussex Couples’ 10 Most Popular Honeymoon Destinations

One of the best things about planning your wedding is most definitely taking time out to flick through brochures (or just even Google) dreamy destinations to visit on your honeymoon. Honeymoons are the icing on the (wedding) cake as far as we’re concerned, when it comes to celebrating your marriage (YAY!), as it gives you precious time together to have adventures or just chill out after a busy pre-wedding build-up.

However, deciding just where to go – with so many choices – can cause honeymoon headaches. To inspire your once-in-a-lifetime trip, we’ve collated Sussex couples’ top ten honeymoon destinations, from the last 100 couples weddings we’ve featured… enjoy!   

1.The Maldives

Ah, the Maldives. White sands, turquoise seas, palm trees – in a word: paradise! We can certainly see why it’s such a popular dream destination for so many couples from Sussex and beyond. Chill out in post-wedded bliss on tropical shores, go snorkelling and enjoy cocktails as the sun sets.

2.New York

Food, shopping and architecture more your thing? New York – the city that never sleeps – could be the perfect destination for you! Take in the amazing sights, stroll through Central Park and indulge in some of the finest restaurants in the world like Love Sussex Weddings readers Anna and Chris, Francesca and Matt and Louise and Lee.
