Look your best this wedding season with these tips and ideas for wedding guest dresses.
Wedding Guest Dress Tips
Here are some of our favourite tips for finding wedding guest dresses for your next big event.
Dress for the season
First things first, when looking for wedding guest dresses it’s important to consider the season. Wedding guest dresses for summer are often more vibrant and flowy to prioritize comfort on hot days. Wedding guest dresses for spring and fall may be more transitional. They often showcase prints like florals (for springs) or solid jewel-tones (for fall) and may come with a light jacket.
Meanwhile, wedding guest dresses with sleeves or complementary jackets are perfect for the cooler winter months.
Stick with classic colours
You want to feel your best in your wedding guest outfit, but you don’t want to stick out for the wrong reasons. Staying with a neutral palette or classic, more subtle prints are ideal.
Of course, this doesn’t mean your wedding attire has to be boring. You can find plenty of stunning wedding guest dresses in different shades of blue, purple, pink, and more.
Keep it sophisticated
Finally, don’t forget to keep it classy. Wedding guest dresses that are long are perfect for every season. If you want to show off your shoes a little more, consider a midi dress.
