Wedding ceremonies might be currently on hold, however this means that for many the invitations are already stacking up for next year—and here at Who What Wear we can't help but plan our outfits far ahead. Especially when so many dresses are heading into sale, and these days wedding guest dresses can also be styled in more relaxed way. We are certainly not opposed to wearing a fancy dress for a socially distanced walk.
There are many factors to consider when choosing an outfit for an important event, which means many of us start browsing as soon as the invitation hits our letterbox. Who will be there? Will you be caught off-guard in a candid snap? What about the pictures that last forever and ever in everyone's photo albums? And then there's what you really want to opt for in your heart of hearts. Lace? Pastels? Florals? Designer? High street? So many options. That's not to even mention choices other than dresses (of which there are many, but we won't go there here).
Sometimes, the answer comes in the form of an elevated, beautiful gown that wins in one swish of a hem. We think it's never too early to start planning for a wedding, so we've scoured the latest collections to bring you a fashion editor's selection of the greatest pieces to invest in.
