weddings

Got a wedding coming up? Here are 50 excellent dress ideas.

ICYMI, wedding season is in full swing. And while we're stoked to be able to celebrate with our friends and loved ones again, we'd be forgiven for feeling a little perplexed about what to wear.

Not only has it been yonks since we've all donned fancy dresses, but weddings also come with particular rules you need to consider before choosing a look - no white for obvious reasons - and a dress code to abide by, whether that's smart casual, cocktail or black tie. 

Can you wear white to a wedding? Women share their thoughts. Post continues after video.
