When the effervescent Aoibhín Garrihy stepped out in her eye-catching cropped yellow Zara pantsuit at pal Emma Manley's wedding earlier this month, the shade of the wedding season was confirmed.

Looking seriously cool and devastatingly chic, the actress gave the trouser suit a zesty new life and made many reconsider what can at times be a difficult shade to pull off.

But Aoibhín wasn't the only Irish gal flying the flag for mellow yellow this month.

TV3 presenter Lorraine Keane stood out from all the rest at the La Dolce Vita summer party earlier this month when she wore a stunningly vibrant yellow tea-length gúna from Divine Boutique, which came complete with cute pocket detail and was accessorised by the broadcaster with glamorous strappy gold sandals.

So while it's tempting to stick to the shades you know and love, why not give yummy yellow a shot for your pal's big day bash this season? From cool lemon to a zingy canary, there are some seriously fun shades to play with for your summer wedding wardrobe so there's no excuse!
