What To Wear To A Wedding As A Guest

The wedding season is in full swing, you have been invited to celebrate the big day of a loved one, and you’re now searching for what to wear?

When looking for the perfect wedding guest look, there are factors to keep in mind.

You want to consider the dress code stated by the couple, and whether there is anything that was specified on the invite.

Common wedding guest dress codes:

Black tie: formal dress code, floor length gowns, black ties, tuxedos

Formal: slightly less formal than black tie, floor length gowns, cocktail dress.

Cocktail: elegant dresses, tea length, knee length

Casual: although the dress code may be casual, you still want to dress appropriate, a sun dress or a smart casual look.

It is important to consider the venue and location of the wedding you’re attending, whether it is very formal, more laid-back, a beach wedding etc.

Consider the season and weather, you want to dress appropriately for the weather and with the rest of the party.

What Colour To Wear To A Wedding

When searching for a wedding guest dress, colour plays a big part in what you should choose.

Have a specific colour in mind or looking for outfit inspiration on which colour to go for?

Colours to avoid:

You definitely do not want to wear white, it is also safe to stay away from colours close to white, such as champagne, cream or any other pale colours as you don’t want to seem like you’re trying to outshine the bride.

You may want to check with the bride or other guests attending about the colours of the bridal party as you don’t want to be mistaken for a bridesmaid.

It’s safe to stay away from colours that are too bright and patterns that are too bold as you don’t want to be the centre of attention at someone else’s wedding, after all it is their big day.

Blue Wedding Guest Dresses

Blue is a popular choice when searching for a wedding guest colour for the big day.
