Fashion: Say I do - what to wear to your wedding

By Michiko Hylands

Update your wardrobe this autumn with moody florals and bold prints. Strong primary colours mixed with rich earthy tones define the colour palette. Gold channels the 80s trend.

Create the wedding of your dreams by choosing a style that best suits you.

Tropical beach weddings have a carefree and relaxed vibe. Vibrant colour serves as a striking contrast to the lush backdrop and the blue sea.

Bohemians at heart adore gypsy-inspired lace dresses that feature exaggerated bell sleeves and fringing.

If you're heading to a cooler location, sleeved dresses with faux fur stoles are a great choice.

For romantics, fairy tales do come true with chic, classic pieces with a vintage feel.
