How to Be the Best Dressed Guest This Wedding Season

How to Be the Best Dressed Guest This Wedding Season

It’s officially wedding season, which can only mean one thing: it’s time to plan your outfits for every special day in your calendar. As the invitations start rolling in and the summer temperatures rise, you’ll no doubt be on the lookout for the most romantic wedding guest dresses. So let’s make it easy for you… 

Boho Wedding Guest Dresses

Shop the look: Brick Crinkle Tiered Maxi Dress , Prairie Pleated Floral Midi Dress


If the bride has a flair for boho styling, you can bet her wedding will match. Perhaps she’s booked a countryside setting or rolled out the hay bales for a rustic-chic celebration. Stay in step with prairie-inspired dresses that balance boho elegance flawlessly. We’re thinking floral prints, soft ruffles, earthy tones and midi or maxi silhouettes. 


Glamorous Wedding Guest Dresses

Shop the look: Pink Lace Overlay Midi Dress, Lace Red Overlay Midi Dress


When we say ‘glamorous wedding’, you’ll know just what we mean. This is the big day that calls for heeled sandals, bright colors, luxe fabrics, a pop of color and a glittering clutch bag. Lace fabrics have you covered, instantly giving you a dressy look that’s also modest. Choose brighter-than-you’d-usually-wear hues, like coral pinks or crimson reds, to make a real statement. 

Low-Key Wedding Guest Dresses

Shop the look: Color Block Tiered Midi Dress, Terracotta Floral Tie Shoulder Maxi Dress


2021 is the year of the micro-wedding, with more and more loved-up couples opting for small guest lists and, in some cases, a laid back dress code. If you have the honor of attending one of these intimate ceremonies, you’ll still want to look dressed-up, but with a slightly more low-key, relaxed edge. Opt for dresses that feature fun details, like a color block palette or strappy ties at the shoulders. If it works as well with flats as it does with heeled sandals, you’ll know you’ve found the perfect piece.    

Beachy Wedding Guest Dresses

Shop the look: Sage Floral Textured Maxi Dress, Abstract Print Navy Maxi Dress


Beachy weddings are tricky to dress for. Between the sand and the sea, your outfit needs to withstand the ocean breeze while still looking chic, sleek and big day-ready. Maxi styles tend to be more wind-resistant, and flats are a must on uneven ground. That’s why we recommend teaming these floaty, aqua-inspired numbers with dressy sandals that won’t sink into the sand. Dreamy and functional. 

All-White Wedding Guest Dresses

Shop the look: Cream Pom Pom Midi Dress, Cream Lace Detail Midi Dress


Where once wearing white to a wedding was the ultimate faux pas, now some couples are making white, cream and ivory looks a part of their dress code. Of course, you’ll need to note the emphasis on ‘some’; if they don’t say it, don’t wear white. But if they do, these pretty, summer-perfect styles are just the thing. The best thing about these ivory midis is that, if you’re planning a wedding of your own, they could even work for your bridal shower or a simple, low-key celebration.
