Weddings are as beautiful as they are stressful, and dressing for them may be the most frustrating part. However, if you get yourself acquainted with these wedding guest dress ideas, you won’t feel so lost. So, next time you’re invited to a wedding, check these out for some inspiration.
With warm breezes and an abundance of greenery and flowers, spring may be the most popular season when it comes to weddings. So, you should wear something bright to celebrate the warmth and the liveliness of spring. Natural patterns and pastel colors like light yellow and baby blue will work perfectly.
For instance, how about a nice floral mini-dress with a ruffled skirt? You just can’t go wrong with a floral dress. You can pair it with strappy sandals and discreet jewelry, and top it off with a thin blazer in case it gets chilly in the evening.
If you prefer minimalistic over flashy designs, you might want to go with a simple monochrome jumpsuit with short sleeves and cropped trousers. And the best part about this ensemble — you can go as crazy as you want with the accessories.
Obviously, summer weddings call for as little clothing as possible. Still, your attire has to be appropriate. You need to find that perfect middle ground.
We suggest that you stay away from short and tight dresses. A longer dress made from a light, flowy material, such as chiffon or georgette, might be a better choice for the summer heat.
When it comes to color, we suggest that you go with something lighter. As you may already know, black clothing tends to absorb heat, making you sweat profusely. Sweating is uncomfortable as is, but if you’re wearing a full face of makeup, it can get downright frustrating.
An example of a good summer wedding outfit would be a light pink or beige dress with an A-line ruffled skirt made from tulle or chiffon, combined with an open-toe shoe.
When we think autumn, we think reds, oranges, and yellows. Well, your wedding attire should have a similar vibe. Choose deeper and darker colors like burgundy and olive green. Fun patterns are always welcome, just make sure the outfit’s not too busy.
Although some days are warm, autumn is mostly rainy and cold. So, make sure you plan your outfit accordingly and get a nice blazer or jacket to cover yourself with.
For instance, you could wear a tight sheath dress with a peplum and three-quarter sleeves, paired with a shorter jacket. Or, you can opt for a fitted jumpsuit in a bold color such as green, and a shirt with a fun pattern underneath.
We’ve finally arrived at the coldest of the seasons — winter. In order to stay as comfortable as you can throughout the day, we advise you to wear as many layers as you can.
For example, you can wear a dress with short sleeves, a blazer over it, and a coat of similar length to top it all off. And when you get to the reception, where the temperature is more optimal, you can remove the layers you don’t need.
As far as colors are concerned, think metallics, glitter, and sequins. You can either wear a silver dress, or accentuate a darker dress with silver shoes, jewelry, or a shiny handbag.
