Valentine’s Day Inspo| Red Bridal & Wedding Guest Outfits


… Not necessarily the first colour you’ll think of (although often the choice for brides in many Eastern cultures including China and India), red wedding dresses certainly make a bold statement for modern brides who want to do things differently. One look at these picks below may have you reconsidering coloured gown options for your big day!

Top Left | Say what you like about Victoria Beckham, she knows how to design beautiful, simple, flattering dresses and this VICTORIA BECKHAM SHOULDER SLIT WOOL AND SILK DRESS is no exception.

Top Right |Our most budget friendly pick for red wedding dresses, this  SLEEVELESS HALTER LACE GOWN by Jovani taps into the floral lace trend and would make a great wedding or reception dress option.

Bottom Left | If you want jaws to hit the floor as you walk down the aisle, I don’t think you could get a more ‘wow’ moment wedding dress than this MARIA LUCIA HOHAN PLEATED SILK MOUSSELINE & LACE DRESS. With its sweetheart neckline;  bustier with internal boning and thigh to hem off-centre slit, this makes a sexy yet sophisticated gown for a bold modern bride.

Bottom Right |It wouldn’t be a Whisper & Blush post unless we featured a 3D floral embellished wedding gown! We love this REEM ACRA EMBROIDERED LACE & SILK ORGANZA DRESS with it’s beautiful embellished lace and train.



…Red can be a bit “look at me” so as not to take the shine from the bride, we’d recommend going for simple elegant styles – try to stay away from extra short hemlines, plunging tops and too much embellishment.



Top Left| The muted red tone of this SELF-PORTRAIT SYMM LACE AND CHIFFON MIDI DRESS isn’t as ‘in your face’ as other picks and we just love the long sleeved bodice and on trend pleated skirt. A fab special occasion dress, would also look great on your bridesmaids!

Top Right | This timeless DIANE VON FURSTENBERG TALI CRÊPE DRESS is such a flattering elegant style and would make a great pick for a fashion-loving Mother of the Bride.

Bottom Left | The full skirt and open back of this CHI CHI ORLAITH DRESS makes for a fun and flirty party dress while remaining wedding appropriate.

Bottom Right | A lovely pick for a Mother of the Bride, this ADELE SHIFT DRESS from Hobbs is currently reduced so frees up the budget for a beautiful jacket and heels to compliment it.


…Have fun with red, but make sure to slap on the SPF, it won’t be flattering with sun burnt skin!


Top Left| A great pair of sunnies can make a summer outfit and we love these BVLGARI BV8178 SERPENTI CAT EYE-FRAME SUNGLASSES. The cat-eye frame screams old Hollywood glamour.

Top Right | A throw on floral dress is a holiday style staple and this EMMA FLORAL OFF THE SHOULDER DRAWSTRING DRESS from BooHoo not only taps into the off-the-shoulder trend, it costs just £5!  That’s not a typo, just £5!!!

Bottom Left | A cute playsuit can take you from beach to lunch to day trip and at just £10, this boho inspired, flared sleeved KIRA EMBROIDERED PLAYSUIT is a great pick.

Bottom Right | A red swimsuit doesn’t need to scream ‘Baywatch’. This MELISSA ODABASH – TUSCANY EMBELLISHED SWIMSUIT  is made from two layers of sculpting stretch fabric. Perfect for those who need a touch more support, this vibrant red style is finished with wide adjustable straps and underwired cups. We love the addition of the elegant gold-plated rectangular embellishment that creates flattering shape at your bust.
