Wedding Invite Dress Wishlist

A few weeks ago you may have read an post I did about going to my friends Hen Night. Corinne, an old colleague of ours had a fabulous meal at a local Chinese buffet and we all had a whale of a time (see post here)

Now we have also been invited to her evening reception in the middle of March. And I have NOTHING to wear!

Don’t get me wrong. I have wardrobes of dresses, however all of them have been worn and photographed umpteen times. As this is a special occasion I really want to wear something new, and possibly a little different to my normal style.

To make things even more difficult I have purchased a hat. Most people get the dress first and match the accessories. However, my very good friend Jane has taken up Millinery and I saw this little beauty and fell in love with it.

Hat by Jayne

Now, I know most people don’t wear hats to evening events, but Corinne knows me well enough to know I don’t stick to general protocol. It is dainty, delicate little hat, not an Ascot special and now I need to try and find a complimentary outfit without breaking the bank.

But the hat I have is a tricky colour to get right. It is a blush pink/creamy nude colour. So what colour dress do I get to compliment it?

Initially I thought Navy Blue, then Teal, Purple or maybe even an emerald green. This of course sent me on a hunt for the perfect dress. I looked at numerous sites, and now I need to choose what I am going to wear.

River Island Floral Print Culotte Jumpsuit £45.00

I have chosen my favourite outfits from a few sites. I now need to make a decision of which way to go. Currently my favourite stands as the Dolly and Dotty Darlene in Purple Spot or possibly the River Island Floral Culotte Jumpsuit.  I just need to find out what colour the spots are!

What do you think?  Have I gone for the right colours? What others should I be looking at? What would YOU choose?

Till next time

    I really like the hat you choose. You can’t beat a good hat x

    • I am a hat addict! I can’t get enough of them x

  • CouponDivaAndi

    I have such a weakness for hats (and some of the dresses too 😀 )

    • Me too! I have so many hats and still want more! x

  • I think your two favourites are good choices. I think I would go with the Darlene in Purple Spot over the River Island. However, I also think you should consider the Asos One Shoulder Maxi dress x

    • The River Island was out of stock… so I went in a different direction! xx

  • I love the jumpsuit! It’s so pretty and something a little different for a wedding than a skirt or a dress

    • I loved it so much and went to order it….to find it was out of stock 🙁

  • Madeeha

    Oh I am loving the jumpsuit. it is right up my street

    • Me too… and then I found it was out of stock 🙁

  • Donna

    Firstly, your hat is awesome!! It so suits you! i love the RI jumpsuit although i am seeing you in the blue Kimono dress too!

    • You might well be right there, Donna. Oh and the RI jumpsuit was out of stock 🙁

  • i defiitely think i can imagine you in that red poka dot one x

    • Me too… but I went a different direction for now! x

  • Dino’s Beauty Diary

    I really like the look of the maxi dress and the jumpsuit, although to be fair each outfit is stunning! xo

  • That purple polka dot definitely seems you! I love it!

    • I know! It is gorgeous, but I went for something a little bit different to my norm x

  • I love the divine teal dress, I think a brighter colour will compliment it better than a dark colour x

  • I really like the Darlene purple spot dress, your hat looks great 🙂

  • I love the pink pastels and florals which you can’t go wrong for a wedding

  • Emily Leary, A Mummy Too

    That hat is fantastic! I think I like the culotte jumpsuit most, the print is fab.

    • Me too…. sadly when I went to order it, it was fully sold out 🙁

  • Jo Wiggins

    I’d definitely go navy, I love the second dress. And that hat is divine x

  • Hungry_Healthy_Happy

    There are some very pretty dresses here. I love the teal one and it’s definitely a style I would choose.

    • I went in a different direction, but I might end up getting that one anyway…. x

  • Ali

    I think that hat would go with all of these. It’s a lovely hat, and I think people still wear them to weddings so go for it!

  • none

    All great choices!

  • Beautyqueenuk

    I think I am with you on the floral cullottes, how absolutely beautiful x

    • Sadly they were fully sold out when I went to order them 🙁

  • Melanie Edjourian

    I must say that would be a hard decision for me as I do love a few of those and I’m super indecisive. Love all the blue dresses the pink and the purple.

  • Sarahjane

    Oh I agree, a wedding reception deserves a new dress! They all look so pretty

    • I never need an excuse for a new outfit to be honest 🙂 x

  • Kira L Curtis

    I really love the ASOS kimodo, I always go for something flowery for a wedding!

  • The Simply Be cape dress is banging, you’d look fab in it! I do love the River Island jumpsuit though, it would go with your cute hat. Then again, I’m never comfy in jumpsuits so I’d have to vote for the cape dress!

    • I love them both, sadly the jumpsuit was fully sold out when I went to order it 🙁

  • Jenni Grainger

    Oh I adore those ASOS ones x

  • I love the Simply Be Cape Dress, the colour is gorgeous!

  • The night cape dress and kimono are my favorites! Luckily that hat (so cute!) is pretty neutral which helps.

    • I just adore the hat, and the Kimono might be making an appearance x
