"Find out what colours the bridesmaids will be wearing," suggests Angela Poplett, personal shopper at Lakeside shopping centre. "There's nothing worse than accidentally matching the wedding party." If you're not sure what colour the bridesmaids are going for, you can always play it safe and opt for a patterned dress, such as French Connection's Wonder Wings Jersey Dress (£57, frenchconnection.com).
