So, your bestie is getting hitched, and you need a cute frock to wow the crowd at the wedding? You’ve come to the right place. If you’re new to the wedding scene and are not sure about the rules for guests, here’s a little nudge in the right direction.
Save yourself the hassle of scrambling around your wardrobe for the old prom dress that doesn’t fit right or tackling 20 stores to come up empty-handed and frustrated. Here’s a few wedding looks that will have you looking slamming in that IG photo, crushing the d-floor, and getting the cutie’s number.
One of the unspoken rules of wedding guest dress code is that you should stay away from mini dresses. For the most part. Exceptions apply to super casual weddings, but to avoid the awkwardness of your bare legs receiving all the attention at the wedding, it’s best to steer clear and opt for a midi dress. Midi dresses are a great choice for those wedding invites that say, “black-tie optional” or “semi-formal.” Our Satin Cami Ruched Dress in green or blue partnered with some strappy heels fits the aesthetic nicely for garden or beach weddings.
Go velour for your indoor wedding in a mansion, restaurant, or castle. Strut around the room in our Velour Cutout Midi Dress. If you’ve got to say a few words (dig up the dirt on your bestie), this is the perfect dress for commanding the attention of the room and being remembered for that great, light-hearted speech. It complements your glass of bubbly, stunning statement earrings, and killer lipstick in the same hue.
A gentle reminder to stay away from mini dresses, especially when they are a bodycon. Our Satin Cami Bodycon Dress comes in rust and beige. As we know, white is a big no-no to wear to weddings, because while we all look fabulous in a white dress, we’re not there to steal focus. Scoop up this satin cami in rust for those semi-formal wedding guest dress codes. We love it with a simple up-do and neutral accessories.
Another gorgeous dress that fits the garden wedding brief nicely is our Open-Shoulder Sweetheart Dress. It’s tight-fitting and flatters your curves. Picture yourself catching the bouquet and a super beautiful pic for your social media in this one. The light olive color pops nicely with a garden setting, while our black version is an excellent choice for more traditional locations such as a church. Style it with black strappy heels and some dangly earrings and grab yourself a simple clutch to match.
You can never go wrong with a classy jumpsuit when it comes to formal affairs. Hit up your bestie’s wedding in our Crisscross Halter Jumpsuit. Choose from black, light brown, or berry – they’re all chic. One of the best things about rocking a jumpsuit is they give you the freedom to bust out your serious moves on the dancefloor. We are vibing this suit with gold jewelry and nude or neutral toned heels for twirling around and dipping low.
