Weddings are unique affairs, no two are the same. What you wear on these occasions, however, doesn’t have to be completely different each time. If you invest in a beautiful dress, you can wear it many times; not just at weddings, but also at fancy dinners and other parties on your social diary. Versatility is important when considering your options, as you’ll want a wedding guest dress that can suit a variety of dress codes, from casual to formal and something in between. Also keep in mind the location, season and time of day. If you’re attending an outdoor ceremony in the afternoon in August versus an indoor gala evening at a hotel in January, you’ll want a different look.
The best wedding guest dresses can handle a few different party scenarios and aren’t too fashionable, but have enough style and personality to stand out. That might mean a minimalist strappy dress that you shine with diamond jewelry and glamorous heels. Or it can be an embellished strapless dress in a trailing silhouette that makes a statement on its own. Whatever your fashion preferences, opt for well-fitting and comfortable styles.
The only thing to avoid: shopping at the last minute. Wedding season is in full swing and while reporting for this piece, we noticed that the designs weren’t staying in stock for long. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up the best wedding guest dresses in key categories, from plus size options to long sleeve options; cocktail to formal to casual lengths, so you can focus on the good part: getting to the party.
