Breeze Through Wedding Season: What to Wear to a Spring Wedding in 2024

Simplifying Spring Fashion

So, you’ve been invited to a spring wedding at The Mill and now, you have to pick an outfit – which feels like the most daunting task. With the unpredictable British weather and the need to balance style with comfort, many guests find themselves at a crossroads. 

However, the solution is simpler than you might think. In our latest – and overdue guide – we will walk you through the latest trends for 2024, ensuring you look fabulous without compromising on comfort.

What Women Want: Comfort Meets Style

Women are blessed with having lots of choice but sometimes, this is the curse. Too much choice leads to confusion and procrastination in deciding. Instead, a wedding outfit should always be chosen with two things in mind… Comfort and style! A spring wedding should have this at the forefront of every guest. 

Think flowing maxi dresses in soft, pastel shades that echo the freshness of spring. Want to go a little more bold? Choose a floral pattern. Fabrics like chiffon or silk are your best friends, allowing you to move freely and feel breezy throughout the event. Opt for subtle embroidery to add a touch of elegance without overpowering your look. Remember, a comfortable outfit at a wedding means you get to enjoy the celebrations at The Mill to the fullest!

What Men Need to Know: Beyond the Basics

Gentlemen, lads, it’s time to stop looking like a Peaky Blinder or opting for those really tight gray suits with the default, scuffed brown shoes. It’s a spring wedding which means that it can either be 27c and blistering sunshine or, 6c and you’re being used as raincover. 

Think of a lighter, more vibrant approach. Consider linen or light wool suits in shades of blue, beige, or even a soft green to stand out. Pair your suit with loafers or brogues in complementary colors, and don’t shy away from adding a pop of color through your tie or pocket square to bring a playful yet sophisticated vibe to your ensemble. If you go no-sock, be sure to wear a “no-show” sock to keep your feet from sweating and stinking when busting a move later on. 

Our Top 5 Tips: Dressing the Whole Family

1. **Layer Love:** 

We all know how spring weather, especially in our Yorkshire heartland can be a fickle beast. In Wakefield, we have the pleasure of some mighty rainfall! So, layers are essential. Women can drape a stylish pashmina over their shoulders, while men can opt for a light blazer that can be removed if it gets too warm.

2. **Footwear Finesse:**
Always think about your footwear for the whole day! Style is paramount but being able to dance, to walk, to run is essential! Choose shoes that offer comfort and style—think wedges or cushioned soles for women and cushioned loafers for men. You’ll be thankful when you’re dancing the night away.

3. **Accessorize Wisely:** 

One of the most underrated things you can do to make a bit of a statement is accessorizing! A statement piece can elevate your outfit. A bold necklace or a vibrant clutch can be perfect for women, while men can opt for a unique lapel pin or a colorful belt. Either way, make the accessory just that, an accessory!

4. **Children’s Charm:** 

If lucky enough to be invited… the little ones need thinking about. Go for cute, comfortable outfits with some flexibility. Soft linens in trousers and dresses not only look adorable but also keep the kids happy and active.

5. **Mind the Theme:** 

If the wedding at The Mill has a specific theme, incorporate elements into your outfit to align with the theme, adding an extra touch of thoughtfulness to your appearance.
