Sex and the City movie wedding scene P

The Sex and the City girls make wedding wear look all too easy…but we know better!

Weddings may be a celebratory affair, but nothing strikes fear into the hearts of guests like the pressure of ‘occasion wear’.

Let us sort out what’s on your wrist with our pick of the best watches for formal summer outings…

The vintage wedding

Maurice Lacroix P

Whether the happy couple are channelling 1940s chic or stuck on a flapper-inspired 1920s affair, all vintage weddings require a little extra thought from guests. Instead of heading to the nearest fancy dress shop (trust us, it’s not a costume party!), focus on a look that is timeless and elegant.

We recommend this Maurice Lacroix Fiaba watch with diamond indices, a blue gemstone crown and subtle accents of rose gold. It’s interesting enough to draw they eye, but guaranteed to stand the test of time.

The Hollywood glamour wedding

Swarovski new watches P

Its big, bold and wrapped in enough fairy lights to be visible from space, but there are plenty of options when it comes to glamorous black tie weddings.

While you root around your wardrobe for that floor length ball gown you bought for that one-off work event, take a peek at these brand new, hot off the press watches by Swarovski. The sparkly crystal straps are perfect for the dance floor, especially when the glitter ball is ceremoniously dropped from the ceiling…

Available from later this year.

The garden party wedding

88 Rue du Rhone P

If the next wedding you’re going to features baby’s breath blooms and drinks in jam jars, it’s undoubtedly a garden, flower-child-inspired shindig. Don’t panic, you don’t need to sacrifice the high heels and blow dries for sandals and flower garlands!

Opt for a printed tea dress with this lovely 88 Rue du Rhone Double 8 Origin watch with a blush leather strap – the mother-of-pearl dial will provide a subtle shimmer without screaming bling.

RRP £540 Shop

The big old fashioned white wedding

Frederique Constant Moonphase P

A beautiful old fashioned church? Check. A vintage Rolls Royce wedding car with streamers? Check. These are some of the calling cards of a big white wedding, which means fascinators, hats and little pouches of confetti are a definite must.

Adorn your wrist with this lovely Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase diamond watch, which is the perfect balance between classic elegance and on-trend fashion credentials (moonphases and blue tones are big trends of 2016!)

RRP £750 Shop

The destination wedding

Rado True thinline P

Once you’ve gotten over the massive cost of booking flights, hotels AND buying a new outfit, there’s nothing more exciting than an exotic wedding in a far flung location (unless it’s in Vegas).

Once the sun-cream has soaked in we recommend strapping this Rado True Thinline ceramic watch to your wrist, which is so feather light you’ll forget you’ve got it on! Okay, so technically it breaks the no-white-at-a-wedding rule, but even the bride will let you off when she sees this!

RRP £1,175 Shop
