What wedding guests are wearing for weddings in our village.
I know you all love my series on “Weddings in our French village”. The last couple of Saturdays I have been lurking outside our magnificent 12th century church of St Michael in the centre of Grimaud to get photos that would give you a flavour of what the guests were wearing.
In the first image elegant trouser suits worn by women of a certain age. I am guessing that they might have been the grandmothers of the bride or groom. Considerable planning must have gone into their co-ordination.
I am definitely noticing that the “dress code” is becoming more casual. Particularly among the men, some of whom were wearing trainers, especially white ones. I even saw one male guest in what I would describe as jean style trousers!!
For the women quite a few trouser outfits and hardly a hat in sight. A couple of the weddings seemed to have a colour theme. For example the photos below are from one wedding with a blue and white story.
Black and white in evidence. I love the embroidery anglaise tunic on the left.
There were some great prints, maybe there were going to a beach party to celebrate after the ceremony.
Colour – Not as much in evidence as last year. View here.
The only two hats I saw all afternoon.
Love seeing what they’re wearing at French weddings and their more relaxed approach. They don’t seem to do the old matchy, matchy thing that a lot of British women go for. I wonder if that is the case at all French weddings or is it the heat in the south that makes them dress more casually?
Yes I think that the location and climate does make a difference to the dress code. Some wedding parties go on to celebrate at the beach restaurants just outside St.Tropez. Having said that I do think that the majority of weddings in France are less prescriptive on what guests wear.
So chic and not a Jacques Vert in sight ! Don’t know about the men in trainers though!
Love your wedding attire series! I can imagine how you lurk and casually take photos! All for the love of style, fashion and helping us girls out! Thank you!
I really enjoy this series. It is lovely to see what people wear in a real-life situation. So very chic, those two first women.
Such a fab idea to do this. Well the french just have that certain flair don’t they ? Some lovely outfits there.
I went to a country wedding here last year & it was a frantic competition of fascinators, overtight dresses , stilletoes & spray tans . I wore Margaret Howell cropped navy trousers with a whistles navy & white silk tunic blouse – One of only two people amongst 300 in trousers . Felt happy with my choice though.
Your outfit sounds gorgeous I am sure you looked stunning among all those fascinators!!!
I absolutely adore the two “mothers” at the wedding. Both are parfait!
Thank you for your comment and enquiry.
A cocktail dress sounds like a good idea for the wedding.
You let me know in which country you live I will try and send some links .
