Wedding guest dress shopping makes for an actual nightmare every single time. You wouldn't think finding a genuinely cool dress that it acceptable for the occasion, suits your figure, feels comfortable enough to wear all day and looks o-k is too much to ask, would you? Well, maybe - but now we're here to make finding that dress to wear to a wedding a LOT simpler.
The pressure to find a dress you actually like, instead of traipsing around the shops and being forced to buy some expensive, ridiculous thing that you'll never wear again, JUST because you've got a wedding in a few weekend's time, always gets too much. Instead of giving up all hope of finding one you actually like and just settling for something that will make you cross every time you look at it until you sell it on eBay or take it to the local charity shop, check out edit of the best wedding guest dresses online.
Whether you're looking for a one-off statement style or a classic you can pull out for the whole wedding season, find it here. Better for the budget and the environment, we think an investment dress you can wear with different shoes, bags and jewellery is the way forward. Especially if, by some lucky – and unlikely – chance, the couples and congregations aren’t the same at multiple weddings.
In our round-up, there's colour block designs which are on trend for the new season and which make perfect dresses for a wedding guest, as well as classic silhouttes and beautiful guipure lace designs. Think more Self-Portrait or Three Floor cool rather than a day out at the races.
Stripes and pleats are big for the new season and they’re ideal for wedding guest dresses if you want to look more fashion than frumpy.
No-one's actually got hundreds of pounds to spend on an outfit — especially after the hen, the accomodation AND the present — so we've found the best from the high street...
