Wedding season is just around the corner, which means it’s time for some new and stylish summer wedding guest dresses to wear to those sun-soaked ceremonies.
Summer is the busiest time of year for weddings, and we bet your calendar is booked back-to-back with celebrations to honor all the happy couples in your life. That calls for a new wedding wardrobe, especially one filled with summery colors, light fabrics, and flirty prints! And while you don’t want to upstage the bridge, you can still look effortlessly stylish with one of these summer wedding guest dresses.
Best Summer Wedding Guest Outfits
You’ll be sure to get tons of compliments when wearing this gorgeous piece from Rachel Zoe. Cut from the brand’s signature sequins and featuring a chic chevron patter, you can pair it with strappy sandals and a clutch for the ultimate elegant look inspired by the glam rock vibes of the 70’s.
2. Floral Summer Dress
A flowy floral dress is a staple that all women should have in their wardrobe. It’s fun, flirty, and can be dressed up or down depending on what you’re wearing it to. This peach-colored asymmetrical dress by Johnny Was has a tropical print that would look great for a beach or garden wedding. Pair it with these cork espadrilles for a formal look or these sandals for a more laid-back vibe.
Buckle also has many cute dress options. Check out their new summer dresses collection!
3. Two-Piece Set
We love the idea of matching skirt and top sets for summer wedding outfits, especially this beautiful number from Lulu’s. Soft and breezy made of woven rayon, this outfit is perfect for a casual or formal wedding, and it’s sure to be a compliments magnet.
4. Long Wrap Dress
Ideal for a wedding guest or bridesmaid, this floral wrap dress by Majorelle is as elegant as it is fun. The neutral color is complemented with a summery lemon pattern, and the belt compliments the body-conforming silhouette without making it look too informal or casual.
5. Evening Jumpsuit
If you want to stand out from the other guests, we recommend rocking a jumpsuit this wedding season. Jumpsuits are super flattering for various body shapes and sizes, which makes them a stylish alternative to other summer wedding guest dresses. And best of all, you can dance the night away without worrying about your dress being too tight or uncomfortable! This dress jumpsuit has a flowy half skirt hugging your waist, making it extra fashionable yet incredibly classy and minimal. It’s currently available in 5 different colors to pick from.
6. Ruffle Mini Dress
Summer weddings can be hot, hot, hot – which is why we love mini dresses for summer wedding outfits. They allow you to feel the cool breeze while also showing just the right amount of leg. This ruffle mini from ASTR the Label comes in two colors (blue and black) and has puffed sleeves and a modest V-neck. If the long sleeves will be too hot, we can also recommend this adorable fit and flare mini by Adelyn Rae with a ruffled silhouette on the chest.
7. Silk Slip Dress
Bring a bit of glam to the ceremony with a chic and sexy silk dress. Because this dress is already on the more risqué-side, we recommend looking for one that hits at the knee or below, like this style by Secret Mission. The V-shaped neckline and diamond bodice are accentuated by the A-frame skirt, which is classy and sexy at the same time. Or you can opt for this looser satin midi-dress by Vince. The lustrous fabric looks just like silk, although it has a flowier fit and a tie-belt that sits right at your hips.
8. Long Sleeve Romper
If you love the look of a dress but want the security of a pair of shorts, then look no further than this sophisticated silky romper by Lulu’s. It’s the perfect print and color for a classic summer wedding. Although rompers are generally considered too casual for a wedding, this flirty style can easily be dressed up with a long necklace or pair of stylish espadrilles. Plus, it’s made from 100% pure cotton, so you won’t break a sweat while you’re mingling with your friends and family in the sun.
An upcoming wedding is the perfect opportunity to go on a shopping spree for a new outfit. After all, all your friends, family members, and even professional photographers will be there to capture this once-in-a-lifetime moment!
Summer dresses are great because they’re so versatile – you can wear them to a wedding, on vacation, or even out to brunch with your friends! So go ahead and pick out some summer wedding outfits that will make you look (and feel) stunningly gorgeous all season long.
