The snow may be falling but make no mistake; spring and the wedding season it brings is right around the corner. With the save the dates long since replaced by perfectly printed invitations, and the hen weekend little more than a hazy memory, all that is left to do before the big day is say yes to the dress.

When it comes to wedding guest outfits, dressing to impress is a path fraught with sartorial stumbling blocks. For starters, you’ll need a hemline that sits somewhere between sophisticated springtime soiree and deserving of the dance floor. There’s the age-old rule that says you mustn’t wear white for fear of upstaging the bride too, plus the unnerving worry that shops full of summer florals and pastel numbers might just mean you end up in the same shades as the bridesmaids. And we thought it was the bride who was supposed to suffer outfit anxiety?


Fortunately, every now and again an outfit comes along that just makes the whole thing easy. This Michael Kors floral applique number is that dress and it is brand new in store at Robinsons. Featuring enough blooms to put the flower girl in the shade and in a scarlet hue hot enough to add some sass to your step, yet feminine enough to work a charm for church weddings, it’s the all-rounder we all hope to find in the man of our dreams. In the meantime, the dress of our dreams will do.
