Dresses for Wedding Guests

10 dresses for wedding guests

Dresses for wedding guests are some of my very favourite kind of dresses: in fact, some days when I flick though my wardrobe, I feel like I’m better prepared for an unexpected wedding than I am for most of the things I ACTUALLY have to get dressed for. Er, does anyone want to invite me to one, so I have an excuse to actually wear some of them? Because that would be much appreciated, seriously…

Obviously what you wear to a wedding will depend on your own personal style, and the wedding you’re attending. You don’t HAVE to wear a dress if you don’t want to, and in yesterday’s post, I gave some general tips on what to wear to a wedding. If, like me, however, you’ll take any excuse to buy a new dress, here are some of my favourite dresses for wedding guests (or anyone else who wants to wear them…):


dresses fro wedding guests: a roundup

Chi Chi London floral print prom dress

I couldn’t do ANY kind of dress roundup, let alone one on wedding guest dresses, without including something by Chi Chi London, could I? I actually have this dress, but in a different colour, and it’s one of my favourite items in my closet: if I was wearing it to a wedding, I’d add a hat of some description (I’m partial to pillbox styles, with birdcage veils), and maybe a cardigan or shrug, to keep my arms warm in cooler weather (or in the church/at the ceremony).

I’d personally wear this one every chance I got, rather than reserving it for wedding guest attire, but that’s just me…

Oasis organza midi dress

When it comes to dresses for wedding guests, it’s really hard to go past Oasis: I’ve talked at length about their summer dress collection, so I won’t repeat myself, other than to say that I’d happily wear just about everything Oasis are selling right now. This dress is particularly sweet, though…

Warehouse blue prom dress

Everything I just said about Oasis could just as easily be applied to Warehouse: they’ve really been excelling themselves this season, and most of their dress section could work for wedding guests.
