A Handy Guide to Our Favourite Wedding Guest Dresses
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a guest, a bridesmaid, mother of the bride, or indeed the bride herself, choosing what to wear to a wedding can be incredibly stressful. When it comes to finding the perfect wedding guest dresses, you want to look great and feel comfortable without upstaging the bride.
Struggling to find the perfect dress that will tick all the boxes? Don’t worry, we’re here to help! Here are some of our favourite wedding guest dresses, perfect for wearing now and in autumn and winter too:
The Versatile Wear-Again Dress
The fashion industry is changing, and single-wear fast fashion is fast becoming frowned upon. Savvy shoppers no longer feel the need to invest in a new dress for every special occasion. If you’ve got more than one upcoming wedding to shop for then why not think sustainably and invest in just one dress that can be worn for a myriad of occasions?
We love this figure-flattering bardot style navy dress, which makes the perfect base for vibrant accessories in any shade. Pair with simple navy sandals and a matching pillbox hat for a demure 1950s-inspired outfit. Alternatively, add oversized chandelier earrings, coordinating heels and a clutch in metallic shades to create an attention grabbing outfit that’s perfect for cocktail hour. You could even add a slim pastel belt and coordinating accessories for a more traditional take on a wedding outfit. With so many different ways to style it, people are unlikely to notice that you’re wearing the same dress over and over again- and the planet will thank you!
The Stylish but Comfortable Dress
Who says you can’t look stylish and feel comfortable at the same time? This dress really does tick all the boxes. With its loose and oversized fit, mid-length sleeves and a plunging neckline, this dress is the perfect choice for flashing a little flesh whilst protecting yourself from the elements. The loose fit of the skirt and the sleeves will flatter almost any figure, whilst the peplum hem detail will enable you to show off a pair of statement shoes.
The bright coral shade of this dress would look great paired with other bright accessories: mustard and turquoise are both fashion-forward shades for A/W2020 that would complement the vibrancy of the dress perfectly.
The Fashion-Forward Patterned Dress
Animal print remains one of this season’s hottest catwalk trends, and leopard print never goes out of fashion, particularly during the winter months. A leopard print dress is the perfect way to show off your high fashion credentials and really stand out from the crowd. This dress is the perfect choice if you’re attending an urban city wedding, or if the bride and groom have a passion for fashion or a flare for the theatrical.
The beauty of a midi length wrap dress, like this one from SilkFred, is that they’re so versatile. With heels and a fascinator you will look formal and elegant: perfect for a traditional wedding. However, with flat embellished sandals and a beachy blow dry, you could also wear this dress to an informal destination wedding. Add black tights, ankle boots, and a boxy blazer to take it to a winter wedding, without having to worry about the cold.
