Love them or loathe them, being a wedding guest can be costly – and that’s before you’ve bought the wedding gift!

Summer is the prime season for weddings, and you can take the sting out of your wedding guest wardrobe by making a few tweaks to the outfits you already have. Here are some tips for looking stylish on a budget. For any detailed instructions on how to try each of the upcycling techniques, be sure to head over to Youtube and do a search and you’ll find even more useful tips.

Bling your shoes

If you’ve never tried customising shoes before, try this on an old pair of shoes first, so you get the hang of it. Whether it’s painting the heels a different colour, adding glitter or some fabric, there’s a lot you can do to add a touch of pizzazz to your shoes.

Change the buttons on blazers

Update last season’s blazer by changing the buttons to match your dress and/or shoes. If you’re wearing black, change the buttons to a bolder colour like red or white, for example, and you’ve got yourself a very stylish look.

Make your own fascinator

If you’ve got your creative flair on, why not create your very own fascinator? With a basic alice band, some lace and a clip on flower, you can even coordinate it to your outfit.
