Jacques Vert’s key tips to choosing the perfect wedding outfits:

.

Don’t leave it to the last minute to buy your outfit. A lot of special occasion wear is made in short runs to retain exclusivity, so if you see a beautiful suit and you know it’s the one, snap it up. There will be nothing worse than coming back two weeks later to find that it’s no longer available in your size, or that you can no longer buy the matching accessories.

.

That said, take your time deciding what to buy. Use websites, magazines and shopping trips to see what’s available, and try things on so you know what suits your shape. Don’t be afraid to ask for help when browsing for or buying your wedding outfit – the assistants are there to help, and will be happy to help you find the right style and size, and to help you coordinate the whole look.

.

Consider layers. Whether it’s a wedding at home or abroad, there are changes in temperature to be considered. The wedding indoors, the outdoor photographs, air conditioning at the reception venue. If you choose a dress, or skirt and top outfit, you have the option of choosing a formal jacket, a bolero, a shrug or even a pretty cardigan to complement the main outfit.

.

Choose the right shoes. Those shoes with the towering heels that looked wonderful in the shop might not be such a good idea when it comes to a day of celebrating, mingling and that all-important dancing at the evening reception. Choose something that you will still be able to walk in at the end of the evening – and wear them in around the house before the Big Day.

.

Accessories are everything. Take time to choose those finishing touches that will make you feel appropriately dressed for the day. The right bag and shoes are as important as the right dress, but a pretty scarf or necklace might also be just the thing to finish the outfit off.

.

Why not treat yourself to a free makeover at one of the make-up counters in your local department store once you have chosen your wedding outfit? Take a picture or a sample of the fabric if you can and they will help you try out a new look for the day itself. These sessions are usually free, but book in advance so you don’t waste a trip.

.
In our opinion nothing says ‘wedding’ like a beautiful hat – and there will never be a better excuse to wear one! A hat is the epitome of formal wear, and will really make you feel and look the part. If you’re not sure you have a ‘head for hats’ or you’re uncomfortable buying a wedding hat, it’s always a good idea to pop into a department store (or a local boutique of course) to try a few on. The assistants there will be very familiar with the range of styles they have available, and will be able to help you find the shape, size and colour to suit you perfectly.

.
All that’s left to remember:

.

1. Use waterproof mascara

2. Pop some tissues in your bag (just in case!)

3. And most importantly – have a wonderful day!
