Ultra-Pretty Wedding Guest Outfits (Updated for 2024)
Aesthetics are everything when it comes to hosting the perfect wedding. Finding a picturesque venue with plenty of idyllic photo locations, a wedding dress that looks great from every angle, and insta-worthy decorations are all part of planning the perfect wedding.
But what about the wedding guests? Well, if you’ve been invited to a wedding, you’re going to want to look your best. After all, it’s likely that you’ll be appearing in photographs that will sit on someone’s mantlepiece for the rest of their lives! With that in mind, here are some of the prettiest wedding guest dresses and tops on the market right now.
"It’s a classic because it works time and time again!"
It’s a classic because it works time and time again! Leopard prints are feminine, photograph well and are easy to wear. Leopard print is also bang on trend this season, making it an easy piece to buy now and wear all winter long. If you’re looking for a dress that you can wear all year round, opt for a leopard print dress set against a dark backdrop, like this red and black version.
This dress could be lightened up for summer with metallic sandals and coordinating accessories, or paired with tights and closed toe heels during the colder winter months. And because it has sleeves, you don’t have to ruin the line of your dress by adding a coat or jacket when the weather is working against you - double win!
"Alternatively wear black on black for a look that is always chic, minimalist and fashion-forward."
If you’re looking for a versatile outfit that you can wear again and again, then sophisticated black is always the colour to choose. Black is a colour that goes with everything, meaning that you can pair it with vibrant headpieces, shoes or accessories to inject colour into your outfit for a wedding. Alternatively, wear black on black for a look that is always chic, minimalist and fashion-forward.
Thanks to Victoria Beckham’s groundbreakingly fashionable dark outfits for both of the recent Royal weddings, wearing black to a wedding is no longer considered a fashion faux-pas. Embrace the simplicity, and know that whether you choose a dress or a top and trouser combination, a black outfit is the most versatile you could ever pick.
Simple and Sophisticated
"In reality, a versatile dress that you can wear to the office or for a dinner date, as well as to a wedding, could be just as effective."
Finally, many women mistakenly believe that a wedding invitation means that they have to buy a new dress. However, in reality, a versatile dress that you can wear to the office or for a dinner date, as well as to a wedding, could be just as effective.
Effortless to wear and designed to fit women of all body types, we love this purple batwing sleeve dress, which is a dream for dressing up or down. Pair with statement accessories, such as embellished heels and a coordinating clutch bag to inject glamour and attract attention for all the right reasons.
