Planning a wedding is one of the most stressful and exciting things any couple can do. From finding a venue to organising the guest list, choosing a menu, to finding a photographer, the list of jobs can often seem endless. But people often forget that wedding season is a busy time for wedding guests too. Booking hotels, choosing gifts, organising time off work and finding the right outfit will all involve both time and expense. Luckily, finding the perfect dress for the next wedding you attend doesn’t have to be a challenge.
Floral wedding guest dresses are a timeless classic and are perfect for almost any wedding. They’re universally flattering, never go out of fashion, and they’re easy to accessorise too. Here are some of our favourite floral wedding guest dresses that are perfect for the next wedding you attend:
The High Neck Dress
Who says demure can’t be sexy? We can’t get enough of this glamorous navy and red floral dress with a halterneck and dramatic dip hem skirt. Perfect for showcasing toned arms and long, lean legs, the cinched in wrap-style skirt will emphasise your curves whilst elongating your shape.
Style the dress with a chic updo to make the most of its unusual neckline and add complementary red or navy-blue accessories. During the upcoming cooler months, an on-trend long line blazer or classic cosy pashmina wrap will keep you warm whatever the weather.
The Wrap Dress
This wrap dress is universally flattering, and the perfect choice for showcasing curves and creating an hourglass silhouette. You can tighten or loosen the belt to fit your shape, adding extra versatility and ensuring it fits you perfectly, wear after wear. We love this version from SilkFred, thanks to its mid length skirt and sleeves, which mean that you can wear it year-round, whatever the weather.
Navy is a chic and modern shade, and the navy and white pattern of this dress provides an unusual and minimalist twist to the conventional floral wedding guest dress. Pair with white accessories during the spring and summer months, or inject bold colours during autumn and winter by pairing your dress with complementary vibrant accessories in shades of red, purple, or fuchsia pink.
The Maxi Dress
If you want a dress that will make maximum impact with minimum effort then opt for a maxi dress. Maxi dresses are easy to wear and look great on almost any figure. Look for a version with a belt tie to create an enviable silhouette and opt for a plunging neckline to show off your décolletage. Don’t be afraid of on-trend spaghetti straps, particularly during the warmer summer months.
Still want to show off your shoes? Don’t worry, a maxi dress doesn’t have to kill your accessories game. Look for a maxi dress with a split front or wrap skirt, such as this rich beige version, so that your accessories can still do all the talking.
