Being the best dressed guest can be an expensive business, especially if you have more than one ceremony to attend this year. This season, follow these helpful hints and you'll be picture perfect, toasting to the happy couple without breaking the bank! One great tip is investing in an on-trend co-ord like this one from Ansari (above) – the ensemble makes for perfectly pretty wedding attire, but then mix and match different top and skirt/trouser combinations to make sure you are never snapped in the same outfit twice.

Choosing cream or white for a wedding can be a bit of a grey area, so to avoid looking like a wannabe bride, add some bold colour accessories. Be bold and mix contrasting prints or colours with a look like this as it adds a stand-out edge to an otherwise simple (yet stunning) look. Why not try these Office Block Heels in Fluro Coral, the Clara Box Clutch from French Connection with a striking zig-zag print and the Pink & Gold jewellery set from Claire's (all shown above).

For a fresh summer look, welcome blooms into your wedding wardrobe. Whether it's a soft flirty floral or a powerful petal print, experiment with colour and shape to add structure to your style. We love Zara & French Connection's bouquet of flower power prints. Fancy something summery and sweet? Head to French Connection for a pale base colour with a pastel floral print. If you feel like going brighter, Zara has a bountiful selection of beautiful, bold colours in busy prints – enough to set of anyone's hay fever!

The hedonistic free-loving 1970s are still huge this summer, so channel your inner 70s glam and push your style to the max-i! Whether you're boho chic or disco diva, take the look effortlessly into the night (and early hours of the morning) by marrying your dress with the perfect finishing touches! Wipe off your daytime nude lip & trade it in for a strong red or coral lipstick in time for the first dance. Kiko Milano and The Body Shop have a plethora of shades at great prices, so you can treat yourself to more than one!
