Style Edit: Wedding Guest Dresses
Weddings are a beautiful celebration of love, commitment and of course, fashion. If you're a wedding guest, it's important to choose a dress that makes you look and feel fabulous - while not upstaging the bridal party. We recommend incorporating colour and vibrance to your look with a wedding guest dress that will impress and accessories to bring it to life! Leave the white dress to the bride unless there's a particular theme requested.
Choosing a wedding guest dress that you feel comfortable in.
Comfort is key when you’re attending a wedding. It’s likely to be a long day, so you’ll want to make sure you’re feeling comfortable in your dress. Our collection of boho-inspired wedding guest dresses are light and breezy. They can be dressed up or down with accessories and have flattering designs suitable for all body shapes.
Our Miss June Aydan Dress in pink is a customer favourite. With its gorgeous vibrant print and summer vibe, it exudes comfort and style. Cinch it in at the waist with our tan leather belt, dressing it up for an evening look.
Can you wear a cocktail dress or mini dress to a wedding? For sure. As long as your dress is elegant and works with the theme of the wedding, a shorter style dress is usually always appropriate. For a chic boho vibe, take a look at our Miss June Shaniya Dress, with gorgeous hints of beige and brown throughout a detailed floral print. This designer wedding guest dress has a beautiful ruffle skirt, adding detail and dimension to the dress.
Elegant dresses that cater for all seasons
At The Resort Collective, our dresses are versatile, taking you from a casual coastal lunch to an elegant dinner. Our popular Miss June Baila Dress in Pastel is ideal for a beach wedding with spring fashion colours, billowy sleeves and a long ruffled skirt. This lightweight rayon dress is perfect for warmer days, keeping you cool under the hot sun and protected from the elements with stylish long sleeves. Add accessories and heels to take this dress from day to night.
Formal dresses for weddings and events
For formal weddings and events, you’ll love our Jungle Twilight Midi Wrap dress and Ruffle Wrap Dress in Emerald Leopard. These divine dresses from Sophia Alexia are full of colour, giving you a shapely look and accentuating your curves. Both dresses are made from 100% rayon, so they’re luxuriously soft and breathable. The flattering prints will make a statement when you walk into the room, while the effortless waterfall skirts will have you feeling comfortable all night long. You can't go wrong when choosing a formal dress for a wedding guest dress.
What to look for in a dress to wear to a wedding.
Consider your audience at the wedding. It’s important to choose a dress that’s tasteful and timeless; remember, wedding photos last forever! Always choose a wedding guest dress, cocktail dress or formal dress that makes you feel comfortable, whether it's a maxi dress, midi dress or mini dress. There’ll be a variety of ages at the event, so it’s best to leave your nightclub outfit at home and opt for a graceful, elegant look.
Choose a design that’s flattering to your figure and accentuates your best features.
Using accessories to glam up your look is a great idea, often taking your dress from a casual lunch to a formal affair. Our collection of bags and clutches will add a pop of colour to your outfit, while our gorgeous leather belts will help shape your look.
