I get a surprising number of emails from readers asking what they should wear to weddings they’ve been invited too. So today I thought I’d use this as an excuse to do some fantasy shopping. I was browsing on the
River Island website and was pretty darn inpressed with their new dress collection – they have so many designs that would be perfect for weddings this summer! River Island isn’t actually usually a shop I go into…however I think that might be about to change.
I think they key thing is to dress appropriately to the theme of the day and usually this can be determined by how and where the ceremony is taking place -ie a church wedding
might mean the wedding could be a more of a traditional affair so maybe you should tone down your inner goth.
I think if you know the couple well it’s easy enough to ask what the dress code might be, but just in case you’re off to the wedding of your second cousin twice removed, I hope some of my recent finds can give you a few new ideas…

How to…Get your Wedding Featured on a Blog
June 9, 2010
I get a lot of submissions. And I mean a LOT. So many in fact, that most people might break down and cry if they saw my inbox in the morning. However I LOVE it and I enjoy looking at every single one - really really truly do so don’t stop them coming! However there are some common mistakes made with submission sending and I wanted to take this opportunity to highlight a few that I see over and over and over to try and make the process of getting your wedding or photo shoot featured on Rock n Roll Bride a smooth one for both of us.
How to…Have a Perfectly Imperfect Life
August 18, 2010
I live and I breathe Rock n Roll Bride. It is my life. It is my biggest passion. It is my obsession. I know from reading the hundreds of submissions and emails I receive from you all that you live and breathe it too. You ‘get’ it. You believe in it and you love the idea of it. But you know what, I have a confession. I sometimes feel like a fraud.
If you’re anything like me, you’ll read a lot of blogs religiously. You’ll pour over the beautiful people and their stunning weddings on Style Me Pretty, their effortlessly cool homes on Design Sponge and their awesomely unique design and style ideas on Etsy. We love to read these sites for ‘inspiration’ but secretly, don’t they make us feel a little bit like a failure? Do you ever read blogs and think “I’m not beautiful enough”? Do you ever wish you had more to spend on your wedding? Do you ever wish you lived in one of those achingly cool, funky and stylish apartments?
Help! My Fiancé & I Have Very Different Tastes – How Can We Style Our Wedding to Reflect Us Both?
May 7, 2012
Last week I received the following email from bride-to-be Tiffany...
Dear Rock n Roll Queen,
My name is Tiffany and I've been a quiet reader for a while. Reading your blog has always gotten me excited for my own wedding and I'm happy to say, that after 8 years, me and my fiance are going to get married. It'll definitely be diverse since his parents are Scottish, mine are American and he is Canadian.
But, I digress.
Alternative & Non-Strapless Wedding Dress Ideas for a Rock n Roll Bride
March 28, 2011
I have a question about wedding dresses and I am super curious if you could help me out. My friend is getting married and she is having a really difficult time finding a dress. I mentioned to her how frustrated I would be if I were her because it feels like 95% of wedding gowns are "tube top" style. I find this incredibly weird considering MOST of my girlfriends hate their arms, yet all of them ended up wearing a tube top dress for their wedding. My friend flipped out (in a good way) when I said that because she said that is exactly the problem she is running into.
My question is....do you know of ANYYYYY websites/blogs/companies that sell UNIQUE, FUN DRESSES THAT are short, long, medium length, has sleeves, off the shoulder style.............JUST DIFFERENT! I feel like if I can help her find the perfect dress then the universe will be friendly to me when it's my turn....and helping her is SO MUCH FUN 🙂

Instagram is - by far - my favourite social media platform. I love to take and share daily snaps and shamelessly stalk others who do the same. It's the one social network that I visit and don't instantly feel like people are just trying to sell me something!
