New year, new weddings to plan for. Yep, already. Get a head start on your wedding guest dresses, whatever the bride’s vibe for her big day is. From destination do to traditional church ceremony, match your look to the event and get rid of that what-to-wear stress.

Traditional (big white wedding)

Brighten up the church pews in this sunshine yellow number while the loved-up couple say, ‘I do’. Opt for a bold colour and star print for an effortless day to night look, taking you from the father of the bride speeches to out of control, open bar dancing.

Destination wedding

Flights are booked and hotels secured but your wedding guest look? Not so much.  Striking the right balance between formal and chilled chic while also factoring in 30 degree weather and a sandy beach takes expert planning. Our action plan is a smock midi dress in a head turning magenta shade complete with ruffled cuffs and a deep v neckline. If you’re feeling brave enough, pack a pair of platform espadrilles to elevate your boho look and attempt to find your seat whilst tottering on the uneven sand.

Registry Office

This couple are a practical pair so match your look to their above-board venue. Choose a wedding guest dress that the law would approve of! Forget fuss and frills, for this civil ceremony we’re going back to black. Make it fashion forward and choose a silhouette that shows you know your style stuff. Brighten up the black with colourful accessories and get ready to throw all the confetti your heart desires.

Shot Gun

This wedding has come around quick, but love is love and we don’t judge. However, what to wear? Panic planning is no fun and you don’t’ have a lot of time. This last-minute nuptial calls for a cute mini smock dress and smart pair of knee-high black boots to keep things easy breezy casual.

Reception / Party

Only invited to the after party? Awkward. Who cares that you’re not at the top of the happy couples list? The positives are you can skip the church service (yawn) and still make use of the free bar. Win, win! Turn heads on the dancefloor and go for a bold print with an asymmetric design that shows off your elite dance moves. As for footwear? Stilettos are out. Mules are in. Think strategically and wear a smaller heel if you plan to dance till dawn.
