What To Wear To A Wedding Reception

At the weekend I had the pleasure of attending my very good friends wedding reception and my friend looked beautiful , my friend had got married in Australia and then toured round in a camper van with her new husband and 2 children. She brought elements of her wedding / honeymoon to her reception in England not to mention the fact that she had a blessing in church the morning of her wedding reception.



It is always a conundrum as to what to wear to a wedding reception as you don't want obviously to ever upstage the bride but you want to be elegant and smart.


Comfortable shoes are a must and compliment your outfit , I can't do heels so flats are the natural choice .

Outfit wise I went for a dress that was an empire fit which fits my shape and doesn't make me feel self conscious. I think your meant when you model to place your hand your hip turn sideways and pout.

I in all honestly usually really hate pictures of myself and I think that's because of my size but thanks to this dress from J D Williams my confidence has grown.


The maxi summer dress I chose was a Joanna Hope print one at £55 and I know that I will wear this time and time again infract I have a rugby dinner that I will be wearing it to this week.I'm certainly going to being looking at more Maxi summer dresses and flat shoes. I love the fact that the dress is one of those that really doesn't need ironing well I don't iron unless I really have to , I will be able to pack the dress for Rome knowing that it won't be creased .The flat shoes I am wearing are so comfortable they are Hush Puppies Lexa Heather Bow Slip and are priced at £53.What I love about the shoes is obviously everything but in particular it as if I am walking on air thanks to memory foam within the shoe. 


Of course I will need more shoes for Rome and I will be sure to look in the Women's shoes section in JD Williams.

JD Williams kindly sent me the clothes but all thoughts and words are my own.


  1. Oh you look beautiful and the dress is really flattering and looks lovely on you.

  2. That dress really suits you, you look really elegant. Totally agree re the heels!

    1. Awwwh thank you ! I love the dress and the flat shoes are so comfortable .
