What to wear to a wedding in October

I am so excited to be invited to a friends wedding in October - wahoo!!!  I thought all my days of attending weddings were over (we've not been to one for years now). I love a good wedding. Not only because you get to celebrate with the couple who are getting married, or the fact that you think back to your own wedding day and look dreamily into your husbands eyes and you both remember your own wedding day (ok, so perhaps that just us smug marrieds that do that) but most importantly YOU GET TO BUY A NEW OUTFIT! Even if you bring out an old dress you already own, you KNOW you will be buying something new on some level for part of the outfit.

Wedding invites stress me out too because I don't want to turn up in a Phase Eight or Coast dress as I know at least one other person will! I very often go to our local John Lewis because it has lots of concessions within the one store and I like that - one shop but lots of little shops :-)

When I mention the next brand please hang on in there with me ok. Jacques Vert. I know I know I know you are all laughing and trust me I was at first but seriously, they don't just do fuddy duddy skirts for 70 year olds, they actually do some stunning tailored dresses that are going to be perfect for my wedding in October.

What do you think?
Outfit 1:
Jacques Vert Embroidered Dress, Blue
Jacques Vert Satin Clutch, Iris
Dune Aviator Suede Pointed Toe Court Shoes

Outfit 2
Jacques Vert Petal Dress, Navy
Dune Aviator Suede Pointed Toe Court Shoes

Off to check more outfits for my October wedding invite! Have you got any weddings to go to this year? Do you get as excited as I do when it comes to planning YOUR outift?

This is a sponsored post. All the choices of the outfits are my own and I do genuinely love them and they are contenders for my October wedding outfit.

  1. Well, who knew?? I thought Jacques Vert was solely for the oldies. Clearly I was wrong ... off now to take a further look!

  2. Gorgeous. I love both of these outfits. And it does pay to shop around. I wear a gorgeous dress which I'm scared to say is Roman Originals too loudly. Lol!

    1. Do you know what some of these 'older' brands do that I find myself liking more and more as I get older and wiser? They TAILOR their dresses for my ever changing body shape and length that I need in a dress. No longer can I wear (I don't feel comfortable) in a bum skimming skater skirt.

  6. I think you shouldn't rule out any brands, I've bought things from Planet and Windsmoor before, a breton is a breton wherever it's from! My daughter recently got engaged and I can't wait for her wedding!
