    Mum & Me: 5 Wedding Guest Outfits

    March 28, 2019
    Mum and Me

    Finally, wedding season is here! Spring, they say, is the most wonderful time of year to tie the knot. The sun is (usually) shining, the flowers become brighter and it’s the beginning of outdoor ceremonies – perhaps this is why the Royals favour it so much! And although it’s a beautiful occasion to be a part of, planning an outfit can be a down-right nuisance. Enter Yumi HQ…

    In a bid to avoid wardrobe worries, we’ve teamed together a few of our favourite looks from our wedding collection. So, no matter what the theme, colour scheme or location, we’re certain there’s an outfit to suit all events.

    Not only does spring bring with it the return of floral prints and pastels, but also a new look of twinning with your mini-me. To honour this, we’ve added in a matching outfit for your daughter!

    Here are our favourite pairs:

    Pretty In Pink

    Party Maxi Dress

    Blush Party Maxi Dress

    At every wedding there’s an unspoken dress code of dos and don’ts. However, one colour that’s certain to be at the top of the ‘wear me’ list is pink. In a full-length shape, our blush maxi dress not only adheres to the colour rule book, but also adds a luxury feel with the lace bodice.

    For her, go for this beautiful pink prom dress. It’s not often that a girl gets to dress like a princess, so make her dreams come true by choosing it for her collection.

    P.S. They’re perfect for bridesmaid/flower girl outfits too!

    Rose To the Occasion

    Lace Bodycon Dress

    Navy Floral Lace Bodycon Dress

    Flowers belong anywhere at a wedding – in the bouquet, as a centrepiece and most certainly in your ensemble. Plus, they are a wedding staple, so if it’s not broken, don’t fix it – right? If you agree, choose this bodycon dress. With a woven floral design and a figure-hugging shape, the only thing missing is a pair of shoes!

    Continue the floral theme into your little girl’s look. If she’s a big fan of colour, pretty flowers and dresses she can dance in, opt for this rose number.

    A Retro Reception

    Lace Prom Dress

    Light Pink Floral Lace Prom Dress

    Vintage designs and classic cuts always make a good coupling when it comes to wedding attire. So, why stray from this? Adorned with a lace overlay and a scalloped neckline, our blush prom dress will take you right back to the 60s!

    Give your little lady the retro treatment by dressing her in this satin prom dress. While she may not be aware of the swinging sixties, we’re confident she’ll adore the swishing skirt.

    Make It Match

    Party Mesh Dress

    White Garden Party Mesh Dress

    Although wearing white to a wedding is considered serious a sin, there’s an easy way around it – by being a bridesmaid! When it comes to being part of the bridal party, skater dresses are the way to go. And, this party piece fits the bill because of its veil-like mesh overlay.

    Also, select the same dress (in mini) for your daughter’s flower girl debut.

    Plain and Print

    Pink Wrap Jumpsuit

    Pink Wrap Jumpsuit With Pockets

    Often, the only thing you need to tie outfits together is a colour. In a flattering shape, this crossover jumpsuit will be sure to make you stand out on the dancefloor. Finish the look with earrings and metallic heels – don’t forget a hat!

    Dress her up in a frock she can wear at other events. Crafted in a fit and flare shape, this silky prom dress can adapt for other formal occasions with a change of shoes.

    For other similar styles, shop our occasionwear dresses, tunic dresses or our Mum and Me collection.
