I have a wedding coming up in September. The marriage of my nephew. He kindly enclosed a Survival Handbook along with the formal invitation stating the dress code as:-
Men - Morning suits - Well that is fairly straight forward just hire one from Moss Bros Hire if you do not own a family heirloom handed down from generation to generation.
Now for the women - Do your thing! Now what does that mean. I presume dressy and formal to go with your formally dressed man.
I took myself off to John Lewis, one of my favourite stores that offers sartorial elegance for a wide range of social occasions from a romp over the Scottish moors to taking tea with the Queen at one of her famous garden parties, should you be so lucky as to receive an invitation.
There I discovered Jacques Vert, famous for wedding outfits and special occasion wear. A one stop shop for a chic top to toe look Wedding outfits from Jacques Vert.
I have put a couple of outfits together and here are the results. What I particularly liked was the fact that many of the pieces, such as the navy jacket and the navy dress can be adapted to every day use once the event is over. More mileage for your money.
