Dressing the part will honour them and the beautiful institution of getting married. Here are some simple rules to follow to be the best-dressed wedding guest.

Navy is the New Black

At Anthea Crawford, we love Navy. It’s an elegant choice and is just as flattering as black. Although wearing black to a wedding is now welcomed wearing navy feels more becoming. Style it with soft colours like pale pink shades, pewter or pale gold to give the tone a fresh contrast.

Tip: Feel like the chicest attendee in one of our signature styles.

When you know the dress code is formal and the day calls for something super special, our lace dresses will have you covered. It’s not everyday you get wear something so ornate, so take the opportunity to look opulent for the occasion. Keep your accessories simple and classic to let the elegant and intricate fabric shine.
