Wedding Wednesdays: Phase Eight

You know how December is the month with the highest volume of engagements?  Okay, I can't actually find statistics proving that's true - but it's what all the wedding blogs say so I'll believe it!  Other than Brandy, Kelly Clarkson, and these two lovely bloggers, though, I don't know anyone who got engaged over the holidays.

However, one of my best friends from college sent out her Save the Dates in December, so I still got some matrimony magic!  She and her fianc√© are both English and will be getting married outside of London in July - the couple has had quite the epic romance over the past decade and I can't wait to celebrate with them.  Of course I've already started thinking about what I'll wear, which is why I was thrilled when Phase Eight contacted me about their new lines a few weeks ago!

I've known about Phase Eight for a few years because I always headed straight to their racks in John Lewis when I had a fancy occasion that called for a new outfit, and they have just launched a wedding boutique with gowns for brides, frocks for mums, and dresses for guests.  Remember when I explained last spring (here and here and here) that wedding fashion is a bit different in England?  Well, Phase Eight has everything I'll need to fit in amongst A&J's English friends...

Phase Eight

I especially love the floral dresses!  And the fascinators - well, there's a reason that weddings in England are so much fun.  What would you choose, dear readers?

linking up with something charming today!
I was compensated for this post but all opinions are my own.


  1. Phase Eight is so great for wedding outfits! I need to pop into one soon as I have a wedding to go to in May. I love the red dress and the bottom right floral one. I love fascinators and hats - it wasn't til I talked about weddings with my Canadian/US friends that I realised this wasn't a norm everywhere else!

  2. I LOVE those fascinators. How fun that your wedding guests will all be wearing them!

  3. we should MAKE it the norm! let me know what you get in the end :)

  4. ooh I love the sexy red one. Do itttt.

  5. I love fascinators! I'm always looking for an excuse to wear one. So much fun!

  6. I think fascinators need to become mainstream here in the US. They're so much fun. And I love all those dresses. I can't even pick a favorite!

  7. The blue and the red dress are my favourites, gorgeous!
