Planning your day after outfit – the ultimate guide

Whether you are lucky enough to be planning an unforgettable three-day wedding celebration or plan to jet off on your honeymoon the morning after your big day, doing so in style is something we firmly believe in. Selecting a stunning day after outfit can help you continue that blissful wedding vibe well into the next week and even the week after.

As the latest addition to the Country House Weddings venue portfolio – viewings have just commenced here at Holmewood Hall – we think that exclusive use of our superb venue should be teamed with utter glamour, even when you emerge from the bridal suite the next day. Discover our top tips for planning your “day after” outfit and pull off that newlywed look fabulously.

Continue the white theme

Most people don’t wear white in their day to day lives for a variety of reasons. Make the most of your bridal status by continuing the white theme into the next day. There are a vast range of chic white dresses available, many designs of which offer the less formal vibe that’s favoured the day after a wedding. If you’re enjoying a relaxed brunch with your nearest and dearest, a white ensemble can be a super stylish way to stand out from your guests without being too formal.

Don’t want to go for another dress? A white jumpsuit is the perfect outfit for keeping the party going. Alternatively, white capri trousers and a casual tee will help you travel in pure style and comfort. View 22 day after wedding style outfits that embrace the white theme.

Be comfortable and chic

If the next day of your wedding involves the far from glamorous itinerary of flying long haul to your honeymoon destination, then comfort will be a top priority when planning your post-wedding outfit. You can be comfortable and chic with the right outfit and accessories. Casual ensembles made from breathable fabrics are best suited to air travel as SmarterTravel details:

“Maintain in-flight comfort and cleanliness by wearing breathable fabrics – materials like cotton, silk, or linen. Fabrics that don’t allow air to circulate will hold sweat on the skin, likely making you feel dirtier faster and probably necessitating a good spin in the washing machine upon landing. Natural fabrics are great, but moisture-wicking manmade fabrics are suitable options as well.”

Accessorise with comfortable, worn in shoes too. Your feet will have to cope with sitting, standing and walking for hours as you venture to your chosen honeymoon destination. Layers also offer a foolproof formula for comfortable travel wherever you’re travelling to or from.

Boho is best

For the fashion-forward summer bride the boho look is the perfect way to strike the right balance between style and comfort, whether you are travelling to your honeymoon destination or continuing celebrations with family and friends. An ensemble of a boho dress, cardigan and sandals is effortlessly cool and on trend, perfect for the new Mrs about town.

It’s not just your wedding day ensemble and day after outfit that needs careful planning. Your emergency kit should contain essentials for use on your wedding day to solve the common mishaps that affect the most prepared bride.
