Elevated 2023 Summer Wedding Guest Outfits.
Find your groove in our edit of new-season heroes that will elevate your look and mood for being a wedding guest and beyond.
Life & Soul of the Party.
The official start of summer is still weeks away, but the biggest wedding beach must-haves are already here. Wedding season is back and better than ever. Our summer wedding guest dresses exude total escapism. Oozing luxury and requiring minimal styling, our fun and flirtatious dresses make it hard not to dance the night away.
There are celebrations to be had, and the ideal outfit needs to be acquired, whether attending with just your closest friends and family in their backyard or travelling abroad for a fairytale wedding. Maybe you're attending a traditional church wedding or a black-tie affair.
There's also a chance the wedding will spark a romance, although you can't outdo the bride.
Fortunately, several solutions are available to keep you feeling and looking beautiful on the day. Of course, there are also stylish tailored and jumpsuit options, but for now, we'd suggest keeping those for weddings in the autumn or winter. Breezy dresses will be considerably more comfortable in the spring and summer, and countless gorgeous options are available. We have a tonne of options, from silk and organza to lace and chiffon.
Is it too short? Is it versatile enough for you to want to wear it again? Is it too bold? Luckily, there is very little in the way of a wedding guest dress rule book (other than no white, obvs). There are several things to consider, such as avoiding sweat stains during the day while remaining goosebumps-free at night and avoiding overshadowing the bride with a daring, new-season colour scheme. You'd be excused if you had trouble finding the ideal glamorous/not-too-glamorous/practical ratio.
Editor note: Opt for chunky summer platform sandals, kitten heels/low-heel pumps, closed-toe mules, and flats, as you will be on your feet all day and night.
Here are our favourite wedding guest dresses for your upcoming nuptials.
Beach Wedding Guest dresses.
Dress them up for summer weddings with mules and bohemian jewellery, or keep it casual with sandals and a straw bag.
This breezy, relaxed fit design will allow you to drift through the day in style effortlessly. A universal silhouette that looks good on any figure featuring floaty balloon sleeves, reminiscent of the 70s, tie waist, plunging neckline and high slit. In a beautiful mustard hue that compliments every skin tone.
Bohemian is the perfect style for any summer occasion; our VERDANT wrap dress exudes boho-chic. A V-neck with long sleeves crafted using lustrous eco-friendly fabric, Verdant's design is both tasteful and elegant. In the brand's signature style, it's beautifully decorated - this time, with jacquard Persian-infused swirls from seam to seam.
Black Tie wedding guest outfits.
This dress code has become increasingly popular over the last couple of years to encourage guests to dress up without feeling the pressure of an authentic black tie dress code. You should go all out for formal weddings. To make a high-end statement, go for dramatic lengths, surprising frills, and sparkling accents.
The other guests at the wedding party will be green with envy over this form-fitting yet delicate silky satin wedding guest dress ROYA. The dress exudes simplicity and would look stunning with a dramatic platform heel or strappy sandal for those who are more unstable on the dance floor. A backless design partnered with a daring thigh-high slit, creating an ultra-sultry look. It also features twisted spaghetti straps and an asymmetric neckline. Also available in white, but unless you are the bride, this dress is off-limits just this time.
In a striking shade of red, LEA batwing dress will make you feel your best on any special wedding day. A dramatic batwing sleeve and fitted skirt offer a playful sense of volume, and the stretchy sustainable fabric will surely keep you comfy on the D-floor after the ceremony. Perfect for all occasions and seasons also available in black and silver.
CLARA is your perfect match if you're attending a particularly ritzy affair but still want to wear something feminine. A dress that contours your curves through its waist knot detail, plunging neckline and tanalizing thigh-high slit. A must-have if you're wishing to achieve a glam look. Also available in a sparkly black fabric.
A celebrity favourite, perfectly balancing chic sophistication with a playful poise. Made from a lustrous Italian green metallic fabric in a classic maxi style that is reinvented through its cut-out features. Also available in shimmery black.
Black Wedding Guest Dresses.
If black is your comfort colour and anything else seems too out of reach, then you can find equally beautiful black wedding guest outfits if you pick the right silhouette, textures and accents.
If you're looking for a delicate silhouette with a show-stopper backless feature, Sarvin has again got your back. A stunning long-sleeve dress that rests just above the knee that looks beautiful on all ages. The twisted back detail is a Sarvin signature that adds that extra allure. Also available in ivory - not an option this time but a beautiful option for a glamorous cocktail soiree.
An effortlessly chic, full-length gown that would work equally well for a black-tie bash or a laid-back garden party, this black dress is the piece you can wear repeatedly. As seen in Vogue and Flawless magazines, this is a wardrobe LBD must-have. This slick long, twist-front midi dress is cinched in at the waistline with a sophisticated signature front knot design. Bianca's deep plunge v-neck and tantalising thigh slit will be the statement piece all year round. Also available in stone.
Floral Wedding Guest Dresses.
A romantic bloom is always in style, whether it's floral embroidery on AGATE or SOPHIA dress with a bouquet on it.
This floral dress's charm showcases its versatility and ability to look flawlessly put together with little effort. SOPHIA is a classic body-con silhouette that will take you from your best friend's wedding through Saturday night at the bar. If you're looking not to upstage the bride and are seeking a floral dress that doesn't scream 'loud' this is the perfect option for you; the floral jersey fabric is muted tones of black, burgundy, rose pinks, yellows, and cream. Our SIMA spotted body-con dress is another alternative if you are after a body-con dress that isn't floral but has an understated print. We offer this in black and peachy pink fabric.
