It’s official, wedding season is among us, which means you’re probably set to attend a few weddings. Now, no matter what the season, I’ve selected the best wedding guest dresses for your next celebration.
But before you pick your dress, here are a few things to look out for.
Timing: Take a look at when the wedding is going to take place. Depending on the season of the wedding, you might want to opt for a long or short dress depending on the weather. (Look over at dress code before you make the decision)
Theme: When you receive the wedding invitation, look over the colors used on the invitation. Here you can gauge the color theme of the wedding and possibly spot out which color the bridesmaid dresses will be. Whether or not you’d like to be mistaken for a bridesmaid, perhaps avoid those exact colors, or wear a printed dress to avoid any confusion.
Dress Code: Did the invite have a dress code? Formal, Black-Tie, Cocktail, Casual. These are a few wedding guest dress codes popular on invitations. With formal and black-tie weddings, dresses should be floor-length. Whereas cocktail and casual dress you can opt for a shorter dress length.
Color: Wearing black at a wedding was once a faux-pas, but in modern times, wearing a black dress is totally acceptable. However, the colors white or ivory is still reserved for the bride. So don’t show up to the wedding wearing white.
Accessories: Don’t forget the power of accessories. With some statement jewelry and cute shoes, you can totally change up the look of your dress (and perhaps wear it again with new accessories)
Where to Buy Wedding Guest Dresses:
For an even more selection of wedding guest dresses, here are a few retailers that have plenty of variety for any type of wedding guest dress:
Spring Wedding Guest Dresses
If your wedding is set in spring, it’s a great time to incorporate light blush tones into your outfit. Popular spring colors include light blush tones, yellows, greens, purples, and of course florals.
Even though Miranda Priestly famously said, “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.” Florals are still a beautiful option for spring wedding guest dresses.
Because the temperatures are still rising, you might want to go for a longer dress for extra warmth.

Beach Wedding Guest Dresses
If you are invited to a Beach wedding, well congrats! Celebrate and enjoy the warm weather and beach setting with the wedding party. But you might be wondering what to wear.
Beach weddings can be tricky because they are outside, and you’ll have to consider the elements. Expect the beach to have some kind of wind, and you’ll have to consider your footwear. Heels will not work in the sand, so a comfortable espadrille or flat will do the trick.
Beach weddings tend to be more relaxed and casual, so you can dress for the occasion by incorporating laid-back, but elegant looks. Plus, depending on the beach wedding, a boho wedding guest dress might be what you’re looking for.
Here are my beach wedding guest dress selects:
Lulus Rose Swiss Dot Smocked Cutout Tiered Maxi Dress
Reformation Kourtney Dress
Reformation Kourtney Dress $248
Lulus Sunshine Yellow Floral Print Smocked Tie-Strap Maxi Dress

Time to get dressed up! Formal and Black-Tie weddings call more evening gowns and longer dresses. Formal weddings are usually evening events, so even if the wedding is in spring or summer, you can still wear darker shades.

Wedding Guest Accessories
Jewelry: Once you’ve picked your dress, it’s time to add your accessories! Don’t miss out on jewelry to compliment your dress. A statement earring or necklace can do the trick.
Shoes: For shoes, a comfortable pair is a must! No matter if you’re a star on the dance floor, or like to watch from a distance, a comfortable shoe is a must. You can opt for a low kitten heel, which looks elegant and won’t be too hard to walk in. Or a classic pair of flats.
Bags: A small sensible clutch is a perfect bag for a wedding. Leave your large weekender at home or the hotel. You won’t need much at the wedding and reception. Plus, a small clutch looks great in photos with evening wear.
