5 Wedding Guest Attire Ideas!

Finding the perfect dress to wear to a wedding is ALWAYS a struggle.  For starters, every wedding has its own unique venue with its own dress code. And, deciphering dress codes can be like trying to solve the Rubik Cube! Some are black tie, others black tie optional… some on the beach, while others are in garden party or even in a barn!  Below are 5 wedding guest attire ideas we think will work at any fare…

1. The Wrap Dress

The wrap style dress a favorite option for a wedding for one very simple reason. The draping. This classic style of dress is flattering on all figures. Realistically, you’re going to be in your dress all day (and well into the night) so make sure to choose something that is comfortable and not too restrictive. This is why we think the wrap dress is a no brainer!

2. Floral Print Dress

Probably the most traditional wedding dress style, the floral print just screams summertime plus it just gives off a feminine vibe.

3. The Maxi Dress

The maxi dress will always be a wedding guest style-staple, and they can also be a comfortable option if you choose a loose fabric. If you’re self conscious about your legs or knees they are a fantastic alternative to a shorter or midi style.

4. Classic Cocktail Dress

If you like getting dressed to the nines, this is a fabulous opportunity to do so!

5. Black Tie Dress

Think red carpet! This is your chance to wear a long, sleek evening gown with your fanciest jewelry…glam it up!

Wedding Guest Style Do’s & Don’ts

Wedding season is officially upon us! Your mind is probably already buzzing thinking about what to wear to all of the events that are now popping up on your calendar. Since dressing for a wedding can be tricky, we thought we’d put together a straightforward list of style do’s and don’ts to guide you through wedding season. Check them out below…

Do opt for pretty, romantic looks. A wedding is a celebration of love, so keep that theme in mind when you’re deciding what to wear. Think floral prints, crepe, ruffles, and lace. Edgy, sultry, or even overly fashion-forward ensembles should be reserved for other occasions.

Do wear your dancing shoes. You want to look chic and put together, but you also want to be able to dance the night away with the couple. So make sure that whatever shoes you pair with your outfit are the perfect mix of style and comfort. Wedges, mid-height heels, dressy sandals, and even chic ballet flats are all good options. If you really want to wear sky-high heels for the ceremony and cocktail hour, we suggest stashing a pair of flats in your bag for later in the night.

Do take note of the dress code. If a couple goes to the trouble of listing the dress code on their invitation or wedding website, take note. If no dress code is listed, you can usually infer how dressy a wedding will be based on the venue. Beach weddings, for instance, tend to be cocktail attire or dressy casual, while ballroom weddings call for more-formal attire.

Don’t wear white. The bottom line is this: Let the bride stand out from the rest of the crowd. Since more and more brides are opting for a hint of color these days, it’s best to avoid cream, and any variation of eggshell in addition to bright white.

Don’t wear anything that is terribly uncomfortable or waiting to be a wardrobe malfunction. It’s a shame to spend the entire evening pulling your strapless dress up or having to skip a beautiful meal because your dress is much too tight!

Now that you have our wedding dress code rules, here are a few of our favorite dresses to wear to a wedding this spring or summer. Take a look…
