Between being heavily experienced in binging Say Yes to the Dress marathons to seeing our friends getting popped the question all over our IG feeds, you can say we’re practically experts in prepping for the most wonderful time of the year – summer wedding season.
As a lover of well, l o v e, nothing makes us experience so many feels quite like weddings. Surrounding ourselves with endless love, pure joy, and catching a glimpse of the groom with tears rolling down his face when seeing the LOHL walk down the aisle just melts our hearts.
NO we’re not crying, YOU’RE crying!
The lovely bride and groom may be your closest friends or you might be a special someone’s plus one, so gone are the days of sitting at the kiddie table. Your new dilemma? Finding the right wedding guest dress!
For these long occasions, looking glamorous while feeling comfortable is always preferred. Not to mention for one night only, the dress better have a killer price tag. As a wedding guest or bridesmaid for a summer wedding in full bloom, start off with following specific guidelines made by the bride(zilla) and dress accordingly!
So whether it’s a formal church, backyard, or destination wedding – get ready to dress according to the occasion and be a knockout! Most importantly, let the bride have her shining moment in white too. Once the reception starts, get out on the dance floor and show them a good time!
But FIRST, don’t forget to R.S.V.P.!
You believe in the fairytale and the serendipitous nature of finding the perfect wedding guest dress… so here you are. You’ll be such a catch in these dresses featuring pretty lace trims in bright shades for summer or deep burgundy for fall/winter. Not sure what color you’re feeling? Try out the “it” color for summer in lovely lavender hues in short, flirty hems. Don’t lie, we know you want to catch the bouquet. 💐
You like to pay attention to the fine details and you are always on time… like always. How do you do it? You already make the perfect wedding guest, so the perfect dress may be a sophisticated sleeveless midi length gown or classic wrap silhouette. Feel free to step out of your comfort zone a little bit in midi dresses with eye-popping prints or voluminous ruffle details which are so now for the season.
You love, LOVE! And with that, you also LOVE a drink or three. The romantic stuff is fine and all, but you could use a little drama… in your outfit. Look just as hot as the bride in these edgy maxi dresses with an open back and deep v for some subtle sexiness. Try a fitted bodycon dress with charming halter detail in stand out gem tones or choker neckline for trendy edge.
You’re the type of person that just feels the romance in the air, so why not opt for light and airy? Looking ravishing in floral ruffles, go for pretty boho details, or maybe a v-neck silhouette with flirty bell sleeves is more your style.
