SACHA DRAKE'S SPECIAL OCCASION DRESSES

Autumn weddings have been growing increasingly popular over the years due to perfect weather conditions and neutral palette landscapes. With the weather not to hot, humid or dry and cold, it's the perfect way to say "I do". From formal sit-down soirees to stand-up cocktail dinners and tapas, we have the perfect events-ready, special occasion dresses and separates to help you celebrate.

It's time to shine in SACHA DRAKE's elegant formal and cocktail event-ready dresses.

A FORMAL AFFAIR

With formal wedding attire it is usually expected that woman will wear a floor length gown, with the men accompanying in a dark suit or tuxedo. The afternoon ceremonies are usually followed by a formal sit-down dinner that goes late into the evening. Long, floaty silk dresses and skirts -such as the River City Skirt (pictured left)- are perfect for the occasion and feel beautiful and comfortable to wear. A dramatic strapless neckline also adds sophistication and when combined with a more fitted style you have the perfect combination of chic and elegance. A perfect example of this is the Maddison Dress (pictured right), and it's stretchy for comfort whilst you dance into the evening. Add the Cottin Kimono if you prefer a little extra arm coverage, warmth and sparkle.

Formal occasion dresses are perfectly matched back with a simple high heel shoe and light catching sparkling earrings and necklaces to complete the polished look.

COCKTAIL CLASSICS

Cocktail attire is meant to bridge the gap between day and night and finds balance between formal and casual. Stylish knee length dresses are perfect for a cocktail-themed wedding or event, as they add the right amount of comfort and elegance and keeps with the dress code. Cocktail weddings can be anything from sit down dinners to stand up buffets and canapes, so you want to look fabulous and still feel comfortable.

The Stamford Plaza (pictured left) has a gold thread in it to dazzle in the light and stretch panels under the arms to ensure a perfect and comfortable fit through the bust. The midi length is perfect for those wanting a little more coverage with a more formal feel. The Emporium (pictured right) has the perfect amount of stretch for a comfortable fit and doesn't compromise on style, hugging your body in all the right places. The front gathers hide and flatter a tummy and gives the illusion of a more hourglass shape. Meanwhile, the fluted sleeves add elegance and balance through the body.

A GARDEN OASIS

Garden weddings provide a relaxing and stunningly beautiful atmosphere for guests to enjoy the surrounding florals and decorated arbours. When planning your outfit for a garden wedding you can allow colour, pastels and florals to shine through and elevate your look. The Hanworth House (pictured left) is perfect for outdoor soirees with its bold hue and feminine shape. Its flexible waistline allows for comfort and the loose-fit draped sleeve adds coverage and elegance.

The weather can also play a big part in garden weddings with the days generally warmer in the sun outside and then cooler as it goes into the evenings. For this, the Beatrice Dress (pictured right) is perfect as it's light enough for the day and then adds a little extra coverage and warmth for the night.

Pair your outfit with a wedge or block heel for a garden ceremony as it will stop you from sinking into the grass and ensure more stability on uneven grounds.
