Our first wedding of the year as guests – a Spring like May day with a little rain shower or two didn’t stop us celebrating with friends, reminiscing from our own special day and generally having a good old giggle. And lets not forget the hangover which lasted two whole days – so far putting me off drinking for a little while, well that is until the next wedding. What more do you need on a Monday than a day of drinking fizz, eating good food and dancing the night away?

With two more weddings as guests in the diary my thoughts are firmly fixed on dresses, shoes and bags and so I thought I would share my outfits for each wedding with you. I do love a good wedding, we enjoyed so many in our early thirties, more recently it has been Christenings and Birthday parties so it was lovely to be starting the new year with not one but three special dates on the calendar.

The one thing that has changed for me over the years is how I approach what I am wearing. I think you can wear almost anything to a wedding these days; a jumpsuit, a skirt, a dress, trousers – as long as you add a little something special to your accessories or maybe even something sparkly there really is no need to go out and buy something that you’ll never wear again.

I opted for my Pink sequin skirt from H&M, I actually picked this up in the January sales for £7, such a bargain but I have recently seen it back online so if like me you are all about the pink and sparkles then this is the skirt for you. When I got this skirt home I was a little nervous that I would struggle to find a top to go with it, almost everything I tried just didn’t quite sit right.

Thankfully my perseverance paid off. To balance out the look I paired it with a really simple frilled top in off white from the occasion wear over on Zara, If you haven’t seen this section then you must check it out. Some gorgeous on trend pieces that you’ll be able to wear again and again. I just love love love the sleeves on this top. It was so comfortable. I can see this being a favourite during the summer months. To keep things neutral, as it was all about the skirt I went for a nude peep toe shoe from Laura Ashley to finish off the look.

The venue was so beautiful, Rowton Castle is up there as being one of my favourite venues – it is nestled away in the gorgeous Shropshire countryside with stunning views and grounds to match. Small enough to make you feel like you are in your own little princess castle but grand enough to think wow, this is a castle. Does that make sense?

I’ll pop back soon with {Part 2} in my wedding outfit style guide for you so do keep a look out. Do you have a go to style for a wedding?
