When it comes to wedding 'I Dos and I Don'ts', fashion designer Brendan Courtney really knows his stuff.

"The Mother of the Bride must have a better dress than the Mother of the Groom," he said at Debenham's Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 soiree.

"Never wear white - unless you're the bride, do not remove your hat until the Mother of the Bride does and under no circumstances are you to invite an ex."

Got it. Brendan had gathered a group of future wedding parties to help them find their perfect ensembles.

"You don't have to wear a hat," he tells the room. "But if you are make a statement with it." Before guests were whisked off to see the film I asked Brendan if he ever saw himself tying the knot.

"Yes, it'll be an 'ocean lapping at my ankles in the Bahamas' kind of affair, it won't be low key."
