1. Consider the dress code

Check the wedding invitation to see if a particular style has been requested by the happy couple. Whether it’s black tie or smart-casual, you’ll find something to fit the bill at Next. Don’t fret if the invite doesn’t give you any pointers though; instead think about the type of venue hosting the big day. A floaty, floral maxi-dress might work for a countryside barn wedding, while a sequinned cocktail number could be a match for a city rooftop reception.

2. Consider the weather forecast

No matter the time of year in Scotland, it pays to wear a layer! Think chic blazers for ladies, cute bobble cardis for little girls, and effortlessly cool linen jackets for the guys, so no-one need be caught short with the shivers.

3. Co-ordinate the whole family

Next makes it easy to pull together looks so that mums, dads and little ones can all boast impeccably co-ordinated wedding attire. We can’t wait to see your Instagram snaps.

4. Accessorise all areas

Put your own spin on your outfit with the unrivalled accessory selection available. Jazz up his suit with a floral tie, stash your phone and makeup in a covetable clutch.
