Wedding season is upon us ladies. That time of year where we fiercely scour every shop and website for the perfect occasion dress, that magical item that will make you feel a million dollars (or pounds in my case) that fits like a dream and sparkles and shines with the best of them.
The thing with an occasion,such as a wedding in my case, is there are photos. Lots of photos. This outfit will be encapsulated in these images which will be viewed by all and put in albums for all of time. You can’t turn up to something like that looking naff now can you.
So when Marks and Spencer got in touch to introduce their Ultimate Dress Guide i headed on over and took a good look at the possibilities for a summer wedding guest outfit. (well worth a look for lots of occasions, i absolutely fell in love with both the outfits for the Garden party, i may have to create a party in my pokey garden just to buy the outfits!)
This dress is actually one straight out of the guide after much deliberating and perusing their full dresses range
I absolutely fell in love with the exquisite beading and detailing, in person its super sparkley and catches the light beautifully. I have my dearest friends wedding on July 2nd, which is a traditional church and a stunning venue for the wedding breakfast. I knew i wanted my outfit to be fitting for a church ceremony (call me a snob but too much flesh out in church is just a huuugge no no to me) but yet still fun and not stuffy. For me this ticks all the right boxes. Yay! That leaves me lots of time between now and then to sort hubby out, he may not be so easy. The man hates a suit, a compromise may need to be had, or bribery, like with the kids (LOL).

Do you have an occasion this year to dress up for? Have you found your ‘Hero’ item yet?
Just a quick proud mummy moment.. this is the child of a blogger, the boy now loves to be in the photos too haha! He’s not coming to the wedding but i’m tempted to buy him a little suit anyway because that would be just plain old adorable!
