2. Be an Early Bird. Start shopping as early as possible but not until the bride and bridesmaids have chosen their dresses. Beginning your search early should give you enough time in case you need to extend your search.
3. Find your colour. Decide on your hue as early as possible and look with these colour preferences in mind. Find a selection that compliments your colouring, doesn’t clash with the wedding colours and remember you don’t have to match the bridesmaids!
5. Going neutral. If you opt for a cream or beige tone you can finish the look off with a strong colour for your shoes and bag.
6. Dress for your figure. Flatter your best features by cinching in at the waist with a belt or pleat. A neat empire line will also gift you a fabulous, feminine figure.
