"Before deciding on my wedding guest look, I always consider the dress code - hopefully, this is stated on the invitation, but if not, the design of the invite and choice of venue can give clues about the general vibe of the wedding. I love browsing the likes of Vogue, Who What Wear and Instagram for inspiration," says Sian. "Whether you like to go all out with vibrant brights or you opt for softer pastel shades, Autumn is the perfect time to experiment with colour. We're expecting yellow in rich mango tones to be a big hit! If such a bold colour is too much of a commitment then consider more muted shades.

The online wedding fashion destination SilkFred reveals why a multiway bridesmaid dress is proving popular this season after the platform has reported a 225% increase in searches for 'multiway bridesmaid dress' in the last 30 days. SilkFred's head stylist Megan Watkins tells us, "One of the main pros of multiway bridesmaid dresses is their ability to be worn in various styles, meaning each of your bridesmaids can feel their best. They can experiment with different necklines, sleeve styles, and draping techniques to find the most flattering look for their unique features." Megan continues, "A huge plus to multiway dresses is their re-wearability - making them a more eco-friendly option as well. Bridesmaids can style their multiway dresses differently for future events such as parties, formal events, or even other weddings. This versatility not only adds sustainability value to the dress, but it also makes it a practical investment for bridesmaids."
