In case the thousands of wedding posts on Instagram haven't already given it away, wedding season is here - and it's taking no prisoners.

If you've already found the perfect wedding guest dress and think the hunt is over, we're here to tell you that accessorising is half the battle. Finding the perfect bag and shoes to suit your carefully selected wedding guest frock will make all the difference, and the early Y2K trend of matching your shoes to your bag is slowly creeping back in.

The extent to which you coordinate your bag and shoes is completely up to you; you can opt for matching primary colours, patterns or materials - or all three. We also love the idea of juxtaposing aesthetics but keeping the overall colour palette similar, so don't get too caught up in finding identical shoes and bags.

Before diving into our list of the best wedding guest shoes and bags, we looked to the runway for some much-needed inspiration.

For those in favour of the traditional clutch bags, Dior's Micro Lady Bag, and Chanel's Mini Flap Bag - both in pastel hues - made heads turn on the SS22 catwalks, so be sure to look out for the micro accessory, as well as the plentiful high street versions.

If you're attending a black-tie wedding event, the sequinned and metallic bags we've seen (and loved) from Givenchy, Burberry and Chanel are a great source of inspiration, often worn as a statement piece of a simpler ensemble.

Shiny metallics also emerged as a noteworthy trend in shoes, with Miu Miu and Fendi - among others - making a sparkly impression on the spring/summer 2022 catwalks.

A nod to the Y2K sleek mule was also seen, particularly from Gucci and Jil Sander, as were the skyscraper-high platforms presented by the likes of Versace and Acne Studios, which are perfect for a beach wedding (no sinking!).
